It is a good news if she is better. When is the birth due? What month?

No official announcements on the topic so far.

Kate had to pull out of visit to Sir Ben Ainslie's HQ in Portsmouth today because she is still suffering acute morning sickness (HG)

She does seem to really be suffering, hope she is better soon.

Well, we already knew she pulled out of today's engagement since last week. Hopefully she's getting better now.

Why must the media continually misname her illness. Equating hyperemesis gravidarum to acute morning sickness, is like equating Crohn's Disease to a pesky case of diarrhea. Ignorant and Insensitive

Well said. Another great analogy I recently read was that calling HG 'morning sickness' is like referring to pneumonia as a cold. It completely undermines the gravity of the illness. If nothing else, Kate suffering this horrible condition is shining a huge spotlight on it and creating a public discussion. With any luck, it'll lead to a better overall understanding of it. Perhaps after this pregnancy, Kate might want to dedicate some of her time and role to championing causes which affect pregnant women. I think she would make a fantastic advocate!

I do not think it is necessarily a case of misnaming the illness, it is a case of describing the illness adequately enough without having to use the latin name. Unless one has had the misfortune of suffering from the illness or is familiar with Latin, the name will simply mean nothing.
Imagine the Queen cancelling an engagement on account of having nasopharyngitis, rhinopharyngitis or acute coryza - few people would realise she was suffering from a common cold.
My question is, is there another name that can be used for hyperermesis gravidarum or a way to describe it adequately enough?

What better choice of a spokeswoman for this issue than one that has already been there, done that and embraced the porcelain goddess twice so far.

I agree and would add that morning sickness is a lousy name for the mild version - as people experience it at odd times of day as well as in the morning. The conditions need a complete PR makeover!

I think it would be great if she went on to champion causes that deal with illnesses expectant mothers go through. I think it depends on how comfortable she is talking about it.

It does sound as if Catherine has a rather serious case of HG as she has been pulling out of a number of royal engagements (the Malta tour and a couple more engagements after that, IIRC). I hope she gets well soon as what she is going through at the moment can't be that fun at all.

I do think she (and William, for that matter) should be seen working more, but as she is rather ill at the moment I will cut her some slack. I'm looking forward into her next public appearance.

Absolutely. If she never wanted to revisit it again, I wouldn't blame her. If she was comfortable with it though, she could do a world of good! :)

I think it would be great for her to take up the HG cause... After all it would be something that she has really experienced...Sadly I think she will not

In between her hourly vomits and constant retching, I'm sure she expresses gratitude that you are willing to cut her some slack...at the moment.

What miss whirley said.
I imagine Catherine would much prefer schmoozing with Ben Ainslie and toasting the president of Singapore to suffering with an illness that sometimes kills babies (and their mothers). And why shouldn't the press call HG what it is rather than morning sickness? Almost everyone has access to a computer or a library or a knowledgable friend if they don't know what it is.

Hoping that as she moves into her second trimester that she'll finally have some relief.

Does one of the other royal ladies already cover pre-natal conditions or maternity care? HG is not that common. If they do could this be seen as "poaching" from one of their causes?
