Poor Princess Kate
Sarah McMoyler, RN posted:
Like celebrities, the Royals gestate in a fishbowl- meaning we all get to track her progress month by month.

As far as we know from news reports, Kate is suffering beyond the expected morning sickness experienced by the vast majority of pregnant moms. Her diagnosis of hyper emesis is very difficult to deal with. While there are medications that often assist with the constant state of nausea (that can include throwing up), there are tough cases that are not elevated by medications/intravenous fluids or hospitalization. What is supposed to be a 'blessed event' becomes a frustrating, ongoing physical nightmare. Most women will find the symptoms tapering off as the pregnancy progresses, although I have seen cases when it continued into the third trimester.

Your doctor or midwife needs to be involved if you are finding that morning sickness symptoms are lingering, particularly if you are throwing up and losing weight —remember you are growing a human being and they may need alternative means of nutrition.

Please let us know of your experiences, what you did about it and how it turned out.

I so feel her pain. I always throwing up sstill do and I am in my third trimester. My doctor put me on medicne for it. I lost a lot of weight threw my first and second trimester. I have gained a lot of weight back. Only due to me taking medicne and a lot of fluids. I also have to stay away from a lot of foods due to allergies. I have noticed of I do eat something wrong I am sick for at least a week. I do keep Kate in prayers and wish the best. She will need to gain more weight than most due to this sickness.
