When it comes to Catherine Cambridge's pregnancy, the only thing predictable are the predictions

Kate Middleton considers C-section, Will breastfeed royal heir?

William will likely be in delivery room

Kate Middleton sets chic and stylish maternity dressing trend

Duchess Kate and Carole Middleton Plan Nursery D├ęcor Together

Did I not predict this type of coverage back in December 2012? Why yes, YES I did!

And clearly, I'm not the only one able to predict the predictable coverage. (By the way, this is the type of article I wish I had written).

I can appreciate the interest in the royal baby. Historical facts about royal babies fascinate me. Although Diana's pregnancy wasn't on my radar at the time, Prince William's birth is what originally sparked my interest in the royal family. The gross sense of entitlement for every scrap of information about this pregnancy does not.

We may not be invited into the delivery room, know the name of the baby, or the color of the nursery walls, but we don't need to because we have the predictable coverage to fill in the blanks. Anyone can state that Kate will decorate her nursery in sedate colors, or that she will listen to her doctors advice in the delivery room or that she will have a boy...or a girl...

Heck, I could have told you that!

Last night I had a dream that William and Kate finally had their baby. It was a girl (YAY!) I also breathed a sigh of relief that Royal Womb Watch 2013 was finally over. Imagine my chagrin when I woke up and looked at the calendar.

With a month or so to go, Baby Cambridge's arrival can't come soon enough.
