Princess Kate Middleton is now seven days past her due date, which has likely resulted in defcon 4 over at Kensington Palace along with plans to induce labor. It’s already been difficult for them to accept the fact that Princess Kate had Hyperemesis Gravidarum, which is just a fancy way of saying she had severe morning sickness. However, it was this same morning sickness that necessitated that Kate’s pregnancy be announced much earlier than they initially planned. And now, they’re having to come up with distractions for the rest of the world, most of whom are waiting for Kate to give birth. Well, I’m exaggerating when I say rest of the world – more like the multitudes of royal watchers and gossip aficionados that exist out there.
Now, the royal doctors have to grapple with the choice of having to induce labor for royal baby #2. Prince George may have come out on time, kicking and screaming and pink-faced. But this baby’s taking her own sweet time, which means they will probably reach the point of having to induce. According to reports, the baby’s already seven days past her due date, which means that it’s still not too late. However, as time continues to go on and Kate Middleton does NOT go into birth, it’s only going to cause more consternation – among her family, the rest of the royals, and even the public – for everyone involved. Prince William didn’t take time off from his royal duties to sit around and play nanny to his wife, did he? We might assume that he did, but everyone thought that baby would have come by now.
A source also tells US Weekly that Kate still has a positive outlook on the whole thing, adding, “She’s doing well, in good spirits. Everyone is! Although it would be fair to say she’s also eager for the time to come.”
Of course she is – she’s nine months pregnant and she’s not getting smaller…. Being overdue is not fun for anyone, much less the Duchess of Cambridge, especially considering the fact that the whole world is watching her every move. She’s probably pregnant, cranky, and can’t wait to get the baby out, even if inducing the baby causes all sorts of drama and in-fighting between the royals.
What do you guys think? Will the royals have to induce royal baby #2 now that Kate is overdue? Or will they continue waiting? And how long will they wait before inducing? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
