Hyperemesis gravidarum: 'You just feel like you're dying;' “This is times a thousand morning sickness.”
With the bombshell news that Duchess Kate is pregnant with a royal heir and has been hospitalized with a rare pregnancy complication called hyperemesis gravidarum, there is one thing that Ann Marie King wants to make clear.
“This is not morning sickness,” says King, who suffered from the condition during her pregnancy and later started a support group for sufferers. “This is times a thousand morning sickness.”

After Diana was impregnated, she, too, suffered from severe morning sickness, anorexia and became near suicidal.

A Windsor fetus taxes the woman carrying it too much - sometimes to the point of madness. However, a Windsor woman can carry any child without difficulty - I understand that Liz, Anne and Margaret had no problems. The babies just slipped out during delivery, too.
It's that family's DNA.
It's right out of Anne Rice's "The Witches!"
Jessica Lange has offered to help take care of Kate.
