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.”

That fetus is defective -- mark my words.

She will not carry it to term.

hyperemesis gravidarum is not a rare condition.

I hope William and Kate's baby is fine. You just know that once Elton John heard the news, he lit a small, single birthday candle, opened a window for the breeze and he started writing a tribute.

It's not a recognized term in your PPO benefits guide, Kate.

Sorry, but you'll still be expected to show up for work Tuesday. I'll frame Monday's absence as a 'Personal Day'.

Thanks and Feel Better!

For fuck's sake, she'll live. Fans of royalty make me barf. I don't want anything bad to happen to anyone's unborn child, but the fans - I want to put them in a concentration camp.

I think Kate has been starving herself for so long that she hates having to eat for two.

Pregnant women used to die from hyperemesis gravidarum all the time before modern medicine. It was as common as dying in childbirth.

No, the condition is quite rare. Less than 1/2 of 1% of all pregnancies. And of those, not everyone died who had it back in the day.

You know, when I heard that Kate was pregnant, I told her to abort. Abort! Abort! Abort! Flush it down the pan, I said! Bring me a knitting needle!

OMFG I read this about the disease. Holy shit. And this woman went on apparently to get pregnant AGAIN.

Wow! You have magical prophetic powers!

Never mind him ... what is Nate Silver predicting?

r10 - I was thinking the same thing. It's like Rosemary's baby.

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

And, now, sensible Kate is having problems.

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.

Jessica Lange has offered to help take care of Kate.

Trust me, Kate, check into Briarcliff Manor. Sister Jude will provide extra special care for you and your precious unborn baby.

Of course there's a support group. What frau ailment would be complete without one?
