Along with the joyous news that Kate Middleton is expecting a royal baby, the Palace also announced that she is currently in the hospital and will be there for a few days for Hyperemesis Gravidarum, a serious type of morning sickness.

The Duchess of Cambridge, 30, has been admitted to King Edward VII Hopsital in Central London to treat the condition.

“Hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) is a rare disorder characterized by severe and persistent nausea and vomiting during pregnancy that may necessitate hospitalization,” according to “As a result of frequent nausea and vomiting, affected women experience dehydration, vitamin and mineral deficit, and the loss of greater than five percent of their original body weight.”
