Kate Middleton is going to be a mommy, admitted to hospital for Hyperemesis Gravidarum

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are going to be parents, this according to an official statement from Buckingham Palace.

Kate Middleton and Prince William, both 30-years-old, no longer have to avoid all the rumors about the possibility and get down to the actual business of having a baby!

Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby.

The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Harry and members of both families are delighted with the news.

The Duchess was admitted this afternoon to King Edward VII Hospital in Central London with Hyperemesis Gravidarum. As the pregnancy is in its very early stages, Her Royal Highness is expected to stay in hospital for several days and will require a period of rest thereafter.

As stated, Kate has been admitted to the hospital for Hyperemesis Gravidarum, a “very acute morning sickness, which requires supplementary hydration and nutrients.” Via WebMD:

Hyperemesis Gravidarum (HG) is a rare disorder characterized by severe and persistent nausea and vomiting during pregnancy that may necessitate hospitalization. As a result of frequent nausea and vomiting, affected women experience dehydration, vitamin and mineral deficit, and the loss of greater than five percent of their original body weight

Congrats to Kate and William for the joyous news and for finally producing a playmate worthy of Blue Ivy Carter.

    Congrats to them, but I feel for her too. HG is really terrible. Hopefully she can get some relief once she’s into her second trimester.

    Congrats to them. Hopefully the 2nd trimester will be a lot easier on her. I had bouts of nauseousness until my 3rd trimester but luckily it never ended in me hugging a toilet.

    I’m excited for them! I really like them as a couple. I’m sad that Kate has to go through HG, though, hopefully it gets better as time goes on so she can actually enjoy her pregnancy.

    Been there and done that. I was hospitalized for fainting from dehydration from it. I was miserable. I am hoping hers eases up since my did not.

    Congrats to them! I hope HG gets better for her. Maybe once she is further along she will be feeling better. I wonder if they are keeping her in the hospital for it or sending her home with IV food and meds.
