Zara Philips is Pregnant

Buckingham palace announced today that Zara Phillips, granddaughter to the Queen, and Mark Tindall, ex England rugby star, are to have their first child together.  This news comes before the imminent arrival of Kate Middleton’s baby, due at some point this month.

Despite it being announced that she is 3 months pregnant she has continued to compete in some risky equestrian events, on Saturday at a competition in Banbury she fell off her horse but was reported to be ‘fine’.

Zara and Mark’s baby will be born 16th in line to the throne, and with their parents sporting background you can expect them to be a superstar in the future.

Baby will make their appearance in the New Year and will be the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh’s Forth great grandchild.

The Prime ministers official spokesperson said that the announcement was ‘quite terrific news’.

Despite the arrival of Baby Tindall, Zara still intends on competing in the Olympic Games in Rio 2016 wanting to improve on the silver she received in London 2012.

I am sure we all wish them the best in the future and that Baby Tindall arrives safe and well.  Who knows who will be next in the royal family?

Baby born using new IVF screening technique

A baby has been born in the US using a new method for screening embryos during IVF which could dramatically reduce costs.  It is thought that only 1 out of 3 embryos have a chance of being s

uccessful due to abnormalities during the process.

For most women who go through this process is a gruelling process, and to have to go through it twice or even three times after being unsuccessful can be heart-breaking as well as financially debilitating when all you want is that little someone to love.

Baby Connor in the USA shown below was born after this successful study where doctors picked the embryo that they thought had the best chance.  However it will now take extensive research to prove that this method is successful.  Here’s fingers crossed…

It’s any day now, and the reporters are getting edgy, who will get the first snap of Baby Royal.

Photographers have been camped outside the St Mary’s Hospital where Kate will Give birth for a week now, yet she is not due til July 11th.

If Kate were to go into labour early she would be flown to the hospital by helicopter, and it has been seen that the parking bays at the hospital have been taped off with signs stating that they have been reserved for an event until 31st July.

We wish Kate good luck, and await the arrival of Baby Royal, Prince or Princess….
