Biboquinhas, I do hope medicine for nausea works well these days and that it helps Catherine. When I had HG I threw up every pill I took within 30 seconds.
I know, unbelievable, but it was as if I had a tennis "serve" going on in my stomach. However, maybe there are "shots" today that work better than pills. Remember the horror we had in the late 50's with Thalidomide, which women took for nausea during pregnancy, and which produced deformed babies. There was another later one available when I had HG, but I didn't try it as I knew it would come up, and lucky me that I didn't, because it turned out to be deforming of some babies too, although not as severely as Thalidomide. Mine may be been a special case, having Porphyria as well as HG, but I do think that with Porphyria I would not throw up a pill in 30 seconds. I would have to wait until the p450 detox system was threatened, some hours at least. So I wonder if others who have had HG threw up pills with such amazing speed?

The Cambridges will likely be choosing from a pool of nannies who have been specifically trained to work with high profile families. It's not like they're going to be picking through childcare ads on Craigslist. These nannies are highly paid professionals and the chosen candidate will be exhaustively vetted, probably before she's even allowed to set eyes on the baby. None of that is an absolute guarantee that the child will be treated well, of course, (you can't guarantee a child will be treated well even when she's with her own parents), but William and Kate will have much more control over the situation than they would if they used a day care centre for their infant.

Regarding the family member issue, WHO in the royal or Middleton families is going to give up their career to become William and Kate's nanny? Pippa? Harry?

Sometimes members of the royal family pick nannies that have already served another member of the royal family too. I'm sure whoever they pick at some point will be fine.

I must admit I am a bit tired of television entertainment shows reporting on Catherines pregnancy as "entertainment" with all the usual speculation of a grocery store tabloid. Tonight they even went into the story of the nurses suicide, her suicide note and her method of suicide all the while saying they have no details on any of it.

I see Catherine's pregnancy has brought out the worst and best of people.

Well, after having read all 37 pages of this thread (!!!), I'm going to wish the Cambridges congratulations, and wish them and their new baby all the best!! On a personal level, I think they've waited a long time for this moment & they must be thrilled!

Yeah, I bet they are thrilled too. It's touching to have watched this couple since they graduated from St Andews and dated for all those years and now they are starting a family. It's a beautiful thing to see.

Where to put this? Since the choice, if this is the one that is made, is said to be driven by the pregnancy, I'm putting it here. Christmas sumo wrestlers in Bucklebury!

It varies with every woman and how many times they've been pregnant. My guess is that as Kate is very tall and slim, plus athletic, and it's her first baby, we won't really be able to see anything until she's four or five months along. Some women just don't get very big. Lucky them!

To be honest, I think it's almost impossible to tell by now what kind of bump Catherine is gonna have. I could imagine that because she's so thin, her bump wouldn't be incredibly huge, but then again I've known very, very slim women who's had big bumps.

Just to put in my opinion, I think they will have no problems making a wonderful family being protectors of faith and living. They know well of examples and of learning of our present fate as living as examples. Our day of the current is not without it's uniqueness and mind altering newness. We haven't seen our way of following each other as now or even in the near future as in the past. It's a brave new World but I give to Will and the House of Windsor to take on the humungous importance of the day and prove the Wale family strong, bound and astounding. Sometimes I wish them patience, breadth of health and love of all life. Then they may understand what is their purpose and why they are the family for their part of the World. Yet, i find it that joy and life is for everyone. So good luck to all and Merry Christmas. May they open presents, greet and have a happy new year!!

Secrets of the Royal Nursery

I was amazed last night watching television. Up pops footage of William and Kate in a mesmerizing collage of them at various functions including their wedding. Tonight folks, on Lifetime TV at 10pm EST, they're airing a special on the Cambridge pregnancy with the teaser title of "Secrets of the Royal Nursery".

Let the Babymania begin! Sheeesh the kid isn't even here yet and he/she is already on the path to baby icon status.

Keeping everyone on their toes SJP also said the Duchess will divide her time between London, Anglesey & Bucklebury as she usually does.

I am as tall, and in those days was that thin. I announced the pregnancy to my family at 29 weeks. Sometimes if you are tall, and the baby is laying a certain way, you really dont show for a long time.

May I ask, about the nanny issue --- how many of you against nannies have actually had one/been raised with one?

I ask because I had a nanny until I was 12 and it didn't detract from my close relationship with my parents one bit and I never felt like I wasn't loved or that I was neglected for attention. I saw my parents as much, I felt and still feel, like other people did --- it's just that I had an extra someone who was also special who was with me a lot.

Nowadays when people live far away from their parents or grandparents, a lot of Americans put their kids in day care (or after school care, if older). Isn't it almost the same? At least with a nanny you have someone regular who your child can bond to (fingers crossed that they are good people).

I don't understand why choosing to have a nanny is a negative thing. Parents should strive to be the best they can, but adults should also have their own lives and activities outside of child-raising --- a nanny makes it a lot less stressful for both involved (no tired parents with short tempers and the fishbowl of being together at all times when what the child/parent actually needs is time to themselves/away from each other).

So for Catherine and William, I think it's ok for them to have a nanny. It would be great if everyone could avail of one, just to see how nice it is to be able to have one, but people shouldn't put it down simply because they've never experienced having one and make assumptions about the effect on children.
