    @Ivy: Hyperemesis Gravidarum basically means really bad morning sickness.

    @Ivy: Read after doing a search it’s early pregnancy bleeding. Perhaps she will have to scale back her travel and appearance schedule. Hope it all works out ok.

    Wikipedia Says:

    Hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) is a severe form of nausea and vomiting in pregnancy different from the more common nausea and vomiting known as morning sickness. Dehydration, malnutrition, and other serious complications are the result of the “unrelenting, excessive pregnancy-related nausea and/or vomiting that prevents adequate intake of food and fluids.”[1] Hyperemesis is considered a rare complication of pregnancy but, because nausea and vomiting during pregnancy exist on a continuum, there is often not a good diagnosis between common morning sickness and hyperemesis. Estimates of the percentage of pregnant women afflicted range from 0.3% to 2.0%.[2]

    @Coco: I think the exciting part for many may be that they were able to get pregnant without the Paparazi actually capturing the moment of conception on camera…

    kings and queens are fictional characters, they serve n o purpose, they existed for hundreds of years before there was televison, now we have jersey shore, the new kings and queens, just as relevant
    i cannot BELIEVE any modern democracy still has royalty, overpaid welfare takers who’s life is nothing but a charade
    they should get real jobs and earn their own money
    stop pretending already, that you are ”special”

    Swizzle Says:

    Exciting news but I feel so sorry for Kate being sick. I had this form of severe morning sickness for both my children and it is the worst experience. Think stomach flu for weeks and weeks, all day, everyday. It is really taxing on the mother both physically and mentally I’m glad she is being treated and I hope it passes soon for her. It is too bad you can know how much you will love your baby while you are going thru that, it would make it a bit more bearable

    whaaa Says:

    I have no problem with royals. It’s fun to see this kind of “fictional characters’ exist in real life. Decent people chose it over Jersey shore.

    toria Says:

    @Christmas:

    They couldn’t wait the three months. The queen didn’t even find out until this morning when William called her to tell her that Kate was being hospitalized. The Daily Mail Online has a very comprehensive article if you are interested with a timeline. She is supposedly 4-6 weeks pregnant. The article mentions Prince William had to scramble to contact his parents, grandparents and Harry before announcing it.

    oh yeah. congrats. i am sure the kid will be as useful and as its free-loading parents. rest assured, ribbons and opening ceremonies everywhere, the next cutter is here!!

    Rebecca Says:

    @whaaa: oh they exist but they have no power what so ever. They are royal ONLY in name . Thats all. But I do with them all the luck. I actually like Kate and William. Even if they are fake royals with no power.

    @Piper: @ozzie: Hopefully Kate will raise her children like Will’s mother did. You two are pittiful.

  59. 59
    Lily Says:

    @DB (#25): Actually the paparazzi kind of exactly did that. They say that Kate is nearly 12 weeks along which means that the conception was…. *tadaaa* yes, when those Closer photographs in Southern France were taken. O_o

    Piper Says:

    @Marsha: what the hell are you talking about? they can raise their kid whichever way they want, who cares? sorry for not being overjoyed by these boring free-loaders that have nothing to do with me or anyone’s else life including yours? they dress well! they’re so classy! she’s so nice! yay rich, white people forever!!

    Yes and have to wait for Queen to die and for Charles to die and dear
    Ol dad Willie to die ..than since now they announce that the first born

    onesie Says:

    Same old, same old from AJ. Isn’t this the same refrain from 3 or 4 years ago? Can’t believe much that she says or preaches, no matter how she hard she pushes the “Saint Angelina” image. She should have thought about actually “mothering” her children years ago, but her own selfish needs always seem to come first.

    AGA Says:

    @Piper: You do realize that Prince William is a current helicopter rescue pilot & Prince Harry is currently in Afganistan fighting for our freedom and many other Royals have been in the military. Sure they cut a few ribbons for CHARITY but todays royals work and pay Taxes.

    Congrats to Kate and Will and hope the sickness passes and that the paps give her some space,,at least until the pregnancy is further along!!
