Kate feels morning sickness won't end

2012-12-10 07:46
London - The Duchess of Cambridge feels like her morning sickness will "go on forever".

The 30-year-old royal and her husband Prince William announced they are expecting their first child together last week after Duchess Catherine was admitted to hospital for acute morning sickness.

After Catherine was discharged on Thursday, William joked about the misleading name of his wife's recent illness.

Speaking at the Winter Whites Gala in Earls Court, London, for homeless charity Centrepoint - which he is a patron of - William said: "I don't know why they call it morning sickness - they should call it all day and all night sickness. It's a long old process but she is getting there. She feels like it is going to go on forever."

The prince was to originally attend the event with Catherine, formerly known as Kate Middleton prior to their nuptials, however the pregnant beauty has cancelled all her royal engagements leading up to Christmas and has been given strict instructions by staff at London's King Edward VII hospital to rest and stay hydrated.

'Deeply saddened'

Since the duchess left for Kensington Palace to rest, the hospital's nurse Jacintha Saldanha - who answered a hoax call regarding the duchess's state from Australian radio DJs pretending to be William's grandmother Queen Elizabeth - has died in a suspected suicide and the royal couple have expressed how "deeply saddened" they are at the tragedy.

A statement read: "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are deeply saddened to learn of the death of Jacintha Saldanha. Their Royal Highnesses were looked after so wonderfully well at all times by everybody at King Edward VII Hospital, and their thoughts and prayers are with Jacintha Saldanha's family, friends and colleagues at this very sad time."

Jacintha's husband Ben Barboza has shared how "devastated" he is at losing his wife, who was also mother to their 16-year-old son and 14-year-old daughter, posting on his Facebook page: "I am devastated with the tragic loss of my beloved wife Jacintha in tragic circumstances, She will be laid to rest in Shirva, India."

DJ's Mel Greig and Michael Christian are receiving counselling to help them cope with the severe backlash over the nurse's death.

    Excuse the personal comments, the change in her body is partly hormone. Just as change in hormone affects insulin production quality or 'temporary diabetec pregnancy'. Its best that she consult a nutritionist for women food, rest, and eat correctly. Infact no smoking around her, or alcoholic wines,beer, coffee. I suggest drinking water be clean as possible. There is another possibility, her child is a male. The baby is developing normally.

      I also had hyperemesis during my two pregnancies. it was hell! I was hospitalised 16 times in total due to dehydration. I couldn't keep anything down, not even water! And as to your speculation of a boy, hyperemsis gravidarum has nothing to do with the baby's gender. I had two girls!

    What a lot of bull sh#t. Running to hospital for morning sickness. Are you tough enough to have a baby and look after it. You namby,pamby royals are a bloody joke and a waste of taxpayers money, just like Zuma and his f*cking brood of thieves.

      Google Hyperemesis gravidarum...its not just morning sickness. Educate yourself before making such a brainless comment.

      How ignorant you are. I've had both and I found a necessary and unplanned C-section far worse than natural birth. I don't believe a c-section is the easy option at all.
