Kate Middleton Suffers Another Bout Of Severe Morning Sickness
Prince William canceled his appearance at the British Military Tournament on Sunday to take care of his pregnant wife Kate Middleton as she suffered another bout of Hyperemesis Gravidarum, or severe morning sickness. Hyperemesis Gravidarum (HG), which only occurs in about 1 percent of pregnancies, can cause fainting, lightheadedness, weight loss, vomiting and acute nausea.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were forced to announce their baby news Monday when the Duchess was admitted King Edward VII Hospital for treatment of HG. She was released on Thursday and returned to Kensington Palace “for a period of rest.”
Over the weekend, St. James Palace confirmed Middleton was suffering another bout of acute morning sickness. "It is well known that Hyperemesis Gravidarum often recurs," a palace spokesman told Us Weekly. "Until further notice, to allow the Duchess a degree of privacy during her pregnancy, we do not intend to offer regular condition checks or advise of routine developments."
Prince William spoke about Middleton’s condition Saturday at the Winter Whites Gala at Royal Albert Hall in London. "I don't know why they call it morning sickness -- they should call it all day and all night sickness," he said. "[Recovery is] a long old process but she is getting there. She feels like it is going to go on forever.”
