Kate Middleton Is Still Suffering From Acute Morning Sickness


When we first got the news about Kate Middleton being pregnant with the royal baby, we also learned that she was in the hospital for hyperemesis gravidarum, which is described as a very acute morning sickness.  Luckily, Kate was released from the hospital after only a few days and was said to be feeling better. Now that she’s back home, however, we’re hearing that the Duchess is still suffering from  hyperemesis gravidarum, which is really a bummer. Click inside to learn more.

E! has the story:

Kate Middleton has come down with another bout of acute morning sickness, just days after checking out of King Edward VII hospital.

While the Duchess of Cambridge won’t be heading back to the hospital this time, Prince William reportedly canceled his appearance at the British Military Tournament Sunday to be by her side at Kensington Palace as she recovers, a rep for the royals confirms to E! News.

“The Duke of Cambridge will no longer attend the British Military Tournament at Earl’s Court this evening,” the rep said in a statement. “But will spend Sunday privately with the Duchess instead.”

“It is well known that hyperemesis gravidarum often recurs and, until further notice, to allow the Duchess a degree of privacy during her pregnancy, we do not intend to offer regular condition checks or advise of routine developments associated with it.”

Saturday, Prince William commented about his wife’s health to former Centrepoint chariman Michael O’Higgins at the Winter Whites Gala, saying “I don’t know why they call it morning sickness—they should call it all day and all night sickness. It’s a long old process but she is getting there. She feels like it is going to go on forever,” according to Gossip Cop.

After announcing her pregnancy Monday, Middleton was admitted to the UK hospital for treatment for this acute form of morning sickness and was released Thursday.

It sounds like this may be the ebb and flow of Kate’s pregnancy, but I sincerely hope that she gets a little relief at some point. Many of you shared your knowledge of acute morning sickness and it sounds like a pretty bad time… except for the part where there was lots of talk about a *baby girl* often being a part of the whole experience, lol.

I’m glad to hear that Kate has Prince William by her side while all this is going on. It sounds like he’s doing his part and hopefully she’s getting all the rest (and belly rubbing… lots of belly rubbing) that she needs!

    She and I are about a month apart (from what I can gather)….and I have the same thing. All day, all night. And my family history has given me the insight to be ready for the long haul (aka my entire pregnancy). Siiigh. I look at it as my daily reminder that things are still moving along as they should be.

    Hopefully hers goes away soon!

      Congrats Meg! This much be such an amazing time– morning/noon/night sickness and all :) Here’s hoping you and your pregnancy buddy catch a break at some point! 40 weeks is such a long time to be in pain, but something tells me it’ll all be worth it when baby shows up!

    • Meg

      Thanks Shannon! It’ll certainly all be worth it in 6.5 months! I’m just lucky that I’m not famous in any way/shape/form…except in my mothers eyes (first grandbaby…hello!)
      I could not imagine having to go through this kind of nausea with the press at my heels.

      All the best to Kate for the rest of the pregnancy!

    I’m currently 21 weeks pregnant with a little girl (my third) and suffered from terrible all day and night sickness up til week 13. Thank goodness, it did finally abate, but it’s not something I’d choose to repeat in a hurry. I never experienced it with my first 2 and kind of laughed it off in other people, until I was there myself! So much sympathy for Kate, especially with the world watching.

    I’m sure she hates the term acute morning sickness. There ain’t nothing cute about it! I’m sure there’s some word history to why acute means severe, but it’s just not what my mind pictures when I hear the word. It’s bothering me for some reason lol
