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.
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!0
