What Is Hyperemesis Gravidarum? Kate Middleton Suffering with the Pregnancy Sickness

It was announced that Kate Middleton and Prince William are expecting their third child and she currently suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum, the Palace announced.

The 35-year-old royal suffered from the illness during her pregnancies with Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 4.

About one in every 100 pregnant women may suffer from the severe form of morning sickness, which can cause vomiting several times a day – and some reports suggest that vomiting can occur up to 50 times a day. The Duchess may not be able to keep food down, and has cancelled some upcoming appearances as a result.

Traditional morning sickness usually disappears after 14 weeks, but this illness will continue and affect the quality of life of the pregnant woman, the Huffington Post explains. Dehydration, low blood pressure while standing, severe nausea and vomiting, and ketosis are symptoms of the debilitating illness.

We hope the Duchess gets well soon!

    God bless her. I had it with both of my pregnancies. Threw up all day every day for 9 months.. twice. Never felt good, no pregnancy glow. I glowed green and felt miserable 24/7 until giving birth. Even the medication they gave me to lessen it made me violently ill and was worthless. So, I am 1 in 100 of women whose bodies are basically allergic to the hormones created by the baby? Interesting. Luckily, she is a princess with nannies and a job she can take off from.. I wish I had had that.
