Prince William and Kate Middleton Are Expecting . . . And She's In the Hospital with Morning Sickness
The good news for the Royal Family is that KATE MIDDLETON is pregnant. The bad news? She's in the hospital with a very severe form of morning sickness called HYPEREMESIS GRAVIDARUM.
--It's marked by nausea and vomiting, but on a more extreme scale than regular morning sickness . . . to the point where it can lead to dehydration, malnutrition, weight loss and other problems.
--It's estimated that at most, only 2% of pregnant women get it. Some estimates say the number is as low as three-tenths of a percent. For most women, the issue resolves itself by about the 20th week of pregnancy.
--Kate will remain in the hospital for several days, after which she'll require, quote, "a period of rest." There's potential for harm to the mother and child, but this doesn't seem to be one of those cases.
--An interesting side note, though: Some experts say the condition is associated with TWINS. There's no word if Kate is carrying what the Brits call "an heir and a spare" at the same time.
--This is the first child for Kate and PRINCE WILLIAM.
--That means Harry is now fourth in line for the throne, behind PRINCE CHARLES, Prince William and this unborn fetus.
--Of course, if Kate IS carrying twins, that means Harry is FIFTH.
