But it kinda still shows that the media was right....there were something about it, just not a pregnancy! But we hope she's feeling better soon :)

Guess the media was way, way, way off on this one!

I think the media release says that Mary attended the opening of the motorway on Saturday, and that she was operated on on Sunday. So this recent visit to the hospital to remove the gallstones isn't the same as the supposed visit Mary made for ultrasound scans.

But then I suppose she had the ultrasounds before the operation... yeah I suppose that makes sense.

O well! Apparently they used to do this to Alex too (the Danes had to wait for about 2-3 years didn't they?). I think Mary's going to wait until next year, but I wouldn't mind a baby now!

As Mary Sunday was operated for gallstone I think the pregnancy rumours for this time can be termed as false. At least if the only evidence is that she was at the hospital for tests beforehand, and has looked not quite herself recently.

Mary had an operation yesterday??????????????????????????

but it is still possible that Mary IS pregnant. From the Glittering Royal Events MB:

FYI. Cholecystitis (aka gall bladder disease) is more common in women, especially during childbearing years.
Interestingly, one of the main risk factors for gall bladder disease is pregnancy, due to increased levels of estrogen. Statistically, one in ten women can have gallstones during pregnancy.

One other factoid for your consideration; surgical intervention (laproscopic) for gallstones or appendicitis is considered relatively safe in the second trimester rather than either the first or third. And, the announcement did say the procedure was planned. Hmmmm?

Poor Mary...hopefully she will get well soon! My guess is, that her great weight loss is to blame for the gall stones and not a pregnancy. Itīs not just, that I guess, but I also hope itīs so. Even though surgery-methods have improved immensely in the last couple of years, itīs surely better to get operated without being pregnant. Mary is just five months married...thereīs no need that every woman becomes pregnant in her wedding night. I hope the people will give her a break.

Yes, I agree Lena. I would hazard a guess that the combination of the weight loss and the stress of her new life were likely to cause the gall stones, (Which are quite painful!). Thank goodness it was only gall stones though! I wish her all the best and hopes she spends the proper amount of time resting.

I'm sorry if I expressed myself poorly. I was just trying to say that comparisons are silly because what really suits one is different from what suits another. I meant no comparison, just to stress that they are different.

In any case, at least we know that there is nothing seriously wrong with Mary, because her husband is sailing in St. Tropez today.
