STORY: Zookeepers at Washington D.C.'s National Zoo are abuzz with excitement as they wait to see if Mei Xiang the panda is pregnant. She's experiencing a rise in urinary progesterone, which scientists say, could mean she's pregnant. They've also seen her building a nest. Ultrasound images are inconclusive - Panda fetuses don't develop until the final weeks of gestation. Visitors are thrilled with the news. SOUNDBITE (English) VISITOR HEATHER WHITE SAYING "I think that's wonderful, since they are an endangered species, and we only have four places in the United States where you can see pandas, so I think it's very exciting." But it hasn't always been good news for Mei Xiang . Last year, her cub died one week after giving birth. Moms at the zoo sympathize with her. SOUNDBITE (English) VISITOR PAM NOWICKI SAYING: "We know they scary parts, you know, and we have experienced in our family miscarriages and, you know, still births and everything else, and it's really difficult for any mother, be it human, or otherwise." Native breeding attempts with her companion at the zoo, Tian Tian, didn't work. Her potential baby's daddy might not be Tian Tian either, since scientists used sperm from Tian Tian, as well as sperm from San Diego's panda, Gao Gao, in her artificial insemination back in March. Move over royal baby, America's National Zoo might have a new panda prince - or princess - very soon.
