Minnie Driver says she's fighting to stay awake

05/28/2008 at 11:21 AM ET

Minniedriver As she shoots the film Motherhood in New York with Uma Thurman over the coming weeks, 7-months-pregnant actress Minnie Driver is preparing for motherhood, herself.  She was asked recently by the LA Times whether she worries about the scenario every mom-to-be dreads — her water breaking in public, and on Uma’s shoes, no less.  Said Minnie,

Oh, God. That would be awful. I’m going to be sort of nodding off before takes as it is. I’ve become vaguely narcoleptic since I’ve been pregnant.

Minnie, 38, expects her delivery surprise the last week of August.

Ha. If it even breaks at all. That was my fear too – except the dr. told me when I was in the delivery room it had broken and I did not even know it! Weird.

Re: Minnie-I wonder if we will see the dad when he/she is born?

If she is due at the end of August she is 6 months pregnant, not 7. It’s then of May, so June, July, August – 3 more months.

Hang in there Minnie. You are almost there!

Shawna — depending on when the specific date is, she is already or almost 7 months pregnant. I am due August 21st. I will be 7 months (28 weeks) tomorrow.

I find this chart really handy!


Sounds like Minnie is just into her 7th month.

I just go by Weeks/4=how many months pregnant I consider myself. It’s easiest for me that way. Not that it really matters. The baby is going to come when he/she’s going to come. Actually, I’m more of a “I’m X weeks pregnant” kinda girl.
