    Speculation began long ago - we have already picked names :)

    She has hyperemesis gradidarum---it's rather bad, poor thing. Hope she gets over it soon.

    My niece had this for eight months. And she was in the hospital & had a feeding tube for 6 months. She had to lay flat on her back without a pillow & only get up to go to the bathroom. If she even lifted her head she would start to throw up. She finally came home from the hospital when she was 8 months pregnant.

    Congratulations to Kate and William! I hope that the Duchess is feeling better soon. My sister had severe morning sickness with her second pregnancy (I secretly thought/hoped that it might mean she was carrying a girl -- and she was!). Unfortunately, it lasted well into her second trimester -- and instead of gaining weight, she lost nearly 20 pounds in the first few months. Kate doesn't have 15 pounds to spare, so I really hope her condition responds well to treatment and/or doesn't last very long.

    I KNEW IT!!!

    I've been saying since the Summer it wouldn't shock me to hear something come November/December baby related to Will and Kate and... :D :D :D

    I can't explain it either. It was just this funny hunch I had and that's the only way I can explain it.

    So happy for them and Congratulations to them!!!!

    However...Glad that Kate's in the hospital and getting treated for the wicked morning sickness, but I hope she doesn't go through this the entire time. My niece Lisa ended up being one of those women that did happen to and she's Type One Diabetic. Thankfully she and the medical team were able to keep Lisa hydrated *and* her sugars so well regulated, Lisa's had the best readings she's ever had.

    So if my Niece w/such a serious health condition can be helped w/it through her entire nine months, I'm sure the medical team over there can help Kate.

    I hope.

    Out of curiosity, I checked to see what the first posting at the previous thread was and we were in the run up to little Estelle's Christening and also little Princess Athena's Christening too. Fitting that a thread that started off w/a couple of Royal Christenings and ended w/the announcement of another Royal Baby on it's way.


    A new thread title should have something about both this lovely news and Princess Maddie's upcoming Wedding. Maybe....Knitting Little Booties and Designing Wedding Gowns or something like that?

    ETA ~ I just realized something. If I'd been able to find a ride over to Sudbury, today would have been my annual skin check up appt. So what you're asking? Just that it was my annual skin check up appt the day Will and Kate announced their Engagement.

    How eerie is that?

    One other thing...Now I'm *really* looking forward to HM's Christmas Broadcast in a few weeks. :D

    Yes, I know someone who experienced the same thing. It's no fun for sure. Hope Kate's is not that bad.

    I've read about a case when the woman suffered from HG the entire pregnancy, complicated by the fact that she was having twins. Relief came immediately after their birth. Hope she recovers at the usual 3 months mark.

    Poor Kate; that sounds miserable. But it sounds like they're talking all the right precautions and she'll get all the best care in the hospital to ensure that she and her baby are healthy...won't be comfortable, but she should be fine.

    So happy for them; hope it's a girl! :D ;)

    I'm trying to imagine how the poor thing got through her recent engagements - including playing a bit of field hockey just a day or two ago! All that standing and smiling and being pleasant - when she probably just wanted to curl up with some tea and dry toast in her jammies.

    HG is horrible. Poor Kate. No medication worked to ease my nausea when I was pregnant and I lost a bunch of weight, for my size. It was scary. :(

    For the anecdote of severe morning sickness and girls, well, I had a boy. SIL who had a girl didn't have it much. I was puking through the whole pregnancy. Blech.

    Likely true!

    However, she certainly looked wonderful during the visit to her Prep school, St. Andrew's:

    Mom and I were just talking about this during Supper. There were a couple of people over at The Royal Forums who were wondering if she was pregnant during their day in Cambridge. Not by the way Kate was walking or "holding herself", but just by how washed out she looked. Others put that down to the beigy coat she was wearing, and I was one of them, as I've noticed that from time to time w/Kate and that colour range.

    Turns out those of us that said that were wrong and although my heart goes out to Kate having to deal w/level of things Morning Sickness wise, I'm very happy to be very wrong this time. :D

    A question: Did Parliament ever do any thing about changing the rules of succession? Weren&#8217;t they going to change it from first male born, to first born?

    Yes, it was changed. The baby will be in line to the throne after William regardleess of its gender.

    Or, if there's more than one, the first one out.

    I suspect if there's a c-section, they'll only take out one at a time. I wonder how they'd choose, if one wasn't in more distress than the other.

    I'd send them a bouquet of roses as a congratulatory present, except I'm afraid Prince Charles would start talking to the said flowers.

    They probably make better small talk than a lot of the people he has to greet.

    I am SO happy for them, and hope that the duchess is feeling better soon. It's going to be fun to watch her progress over the coming months! :) :)

    Actually, no it hasn't. I was reading about this over at the CBC due to just what doing this in Canada could also mean...

    CBC ~ Canada set for new law in case Kate's royal baby is a girl

    If having to do this also means it's a change to our Constitution, then all hell could literally be let loose in Canada. Especially w/the PQ in power in Quebec right now.

    I really don't want my Country going down that road again thank you very much. Even if it means the ratifying of this particular piece of legislation.

    Doing this as a separate post as it hasn't anything to do w/the Happy News from the UK today...

    Views and News from Norway ~ Mette-Marit aided surrogate parents

    My admiration for this lady has just grown. Was it a sticky situation? W/out a doubt. However, as HRH says herself in her statement, sometimes you have no good options in a situation such as this, so you do what you believe is the right thing to do. This could still produce problems for her just due to the entire debate and laws considering surrogacy in Norway, but I admire her so much for doing this.

    At that point, why go home? You only have to come back right away...

    Funny, I was just looking at a tabloid (long line at Wally World this afternoon) with the headline "PALACE INSIDER CONFIRMS IT! Will and Kate Expecting!" and having not watched or listened to any news I just wondered about more speculation. Then of course when I logged on tonight and saw the headlines the first thing I thought was "Wonder if FSU has a thread yet?"

    I had HG when I was pregnant with my second son and it was so bad that i lost 15 lbs in less than a month. I had it throughout my pregnancy and took Diclentin. I had HG for a week after I had my son but it finally stopped.
    Post birth I was 10 lbs under my starting weight and within a month I had lost an additional 15 lbs. It was crazy. I truly hope she doesn't have it as long as I did.

    Congrats to them!!

    With her looking so active and lively just a few days ago, I have to wonder if they are just being super cautious with her. She doesn't have an ounce to lose, so it wouldn't surprise me. In any event, I hope she's not too uncomfortable. She's got a long way to go.

    congratulations to them!!

    This is the general time frame that I figured they would be expecting, and with her changing cheeks and outfits in the last 2 weeks, you knew it was coming very soon. They finished the the obligations for the Jubilee/Olympic year, did their big tours, and they have been married a year and a half which is a good amount of time to become settled as a married couple and get used to their new lives. Many modern couples with busy lives, events upcoming, wait until certain things/events are over and they feel settled before deciding to try for a baby and that could be exactly what they did.

    I hope Kate feels better. It sound miserable to be having even worse morning sickness than normal. Hope she gets the rest she needs and with the winter coming she can kind of "nest. "

    I'm sure the Queen is thrilled and it makes an already special year for her even more special.

    I've read a few times today that calling hyperemesis gradidarum "severe morning sickness" is like calling meningitis a "severe cold". It greatly diminishes what is actually happening. I hope she is okay, and that the baby is too.
