Kate Middleton is pregnant and has hyperemesis gravidarum again

in health •  last year

When I heard that Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William are expecting their third baby, I was happy for them. Yet very sad that she is suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum, yet again.

Hyperemesis gravidarum or HG is debilitating nausea and vomiting during pregnancy. It can disappear after 20 weeks, or it can go on throughout the rest of the pregnancy.


HG makes typical pregnancy sickness look like a walk in the park. No one really knows why it happens. If a woman experiences it once, there is an 80% chance she'd deal with it again.

I relate to her pain because I endured it while I was pregnant with my youngest for 7 months. My oldest who just had given birth to my twin granddaughters last Tuesday endured it for 6 months.

Both of us had the debilitating nausea, and vomited at least 20 times a day. We needed to be hospitalized, and had the PICC lines. Though she was on TPN, and I was on a different formulation. HG is hell. HG is torture. I won't go into the graphic details. I would never wish it on anyone.

It does not matter if Kate appears to have the upper hand because of her status. HG is hell for any pregnant woman. I think she is brave to have even considered another going through a third pregnancy. The risk of another HG pregnancy is high like I had previously mentioned.

HG is not comparable to morning sickness. I can say this because I have experienced both. I really hope it eases for the Duchess.

My mom has diverticulitis so I imagine she can relate :/

I didnt know about this at all, thanks for the Info


@tattoodjay I would never wish this on anyone. It's horrible. 🤢


That's what I was thinking as I read it sounds real nasty


@tattoodjay it's a nightmare 😫


I am so excited for their new little one, but it's awful that she has to deal with HG. I'm wishing her the best for a healthy pregnancy and a healthy prince or princess.

..and then to top it off half the country here gives them abuse calling them unemployed benefit scroungers and other nasty things as though they are a drain on the country. I think she's quite courageous and I hope it eases for her. HG is terrible.

Wow. I didn't know about this. I had horrible morning sickness and went on some medicine with my daughter. It subsided and I can't imagine going through this. And this is her THURD!? She is a tropper that is fo sho.
