Several people agree that the best decision they have ever made was to become parents.


Prince William and Duchess Kate are no different. They have welcomed two children so far – Prince George and Princess Charlotte – and their third child will be born any minute now.

According to Uplifting Today, Kate’s pregnancies have not been easy at all. No matter how healthy and fit women are, most suffer nausea and vomiting while pregnant due to the fact their bodies are not used to carrying a baby and to the hormonal change.

In Kate’s case, her ‘morning sickness’ is worse than the one people know as she has been diagnosed with something called Hyperemesis Gravidarum every time she has been pregnant.


As reported by WebMD, Hyperemesis Gravidarum (HG) is a disorder that causes pregnant women severe and persistent nausea and vomiting that could lead to dehydration.

In most the cases, patients must go to the hospital to replenish their fluids, vitamins, and minerals. HG is so rare that only 3% of pregnant women in the world are diagnosed with it.

One of the worst aspects of it is that it has no cure, which means that women have to deal with it during the entire nine months of the process. It is also known that it reappears with every pregnancy.


Kate, who has been carrying a child three times already, might be tired of experiencing the symptoms all over again, which might suggest that she is probably planning not having a fourth child.

According to Express, Kate has always wanted to have ‘at least’ three children and, given the ‘ordeal’ she went through with her previous pregnancies, she and William are pretty much done having babies.

So far, it is not known either the gender of the baby or the exact due date of Kate. All that is left to do is wait for them to announce one of the most anticipated pieces of news of 2018.
