Pregnant Kate Middleton: duchess' condition sparks twins rumours
STV Entertainment ^ | 12/04/2012

Pregnant Kate Middleton could very well be carrying twins, medical experts have commented - because the duchess is suffering from acute morning sickness.

Duchess Kate is currently being treated in hospital for the ailment, otherwise known as hyperemesis gravidarum – a condition which is more commonly associated with women who are carrying twins.

Now rumours are rife that the royal, who is married to Prince William, could be carrying not just one baby, but two.

But if Kate is indeed carrying twins we won’t know for a good few weeks yet. In fact the duchess isn’t even at the 12-week gestation period yet, with Kate and William believed to have taken the unusual decision to announce the pregnancy so early because of her admission to hospital.

Kate remains in King Edward VII Hospital in London today, with her husband Prince William by her side, as she continues to be treated for hyperemesis gravidarum. The rare condition, which can cause dehydration and vomiting, is usually treated with the administration of intravenous fluids and anti-sickness medication.

Some women suffer with acute morning sickness up to around 20 weeks’ gestation – but it is hoped that Kate won't suffer as badly and will be able to leave hospital in the next few days, albeit while taking bed rest at home.

Baby rumours have flown about for months now, with royal watchers noting that the duchess was spotted drinking water out of a wine glass during her and William’s South Seas trip, as well as sporting a slightly fuller figure and face – which all pointing towards a possible pregnancy.

In reality everyone has been waiting for the news ever since Kate Middleton married Prince William on April 29 2011.

But it was not until yesterday (December 3) at 4.01pm that the happy news was confirmed, with a statement issued by St James’s Palace, which read: “Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby.

“The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Harry and members of both families are delighted with the news.

“The Duchess was admitted this afternoon to King Edward VII Hospital in Central London with Hyperemesis Gravidarum. As the pregnancy is in its very early stages, Her Royal Highness is expected to stay in hospital for several days and will require a period of rest thereafter.”

One of the twins will be raised in the palace, while the other one will be sent out to be raised by wolves. But no one will be told which one was born first and is the rightful king of England.

Have there ever been twins born in the entire British royal history??? This would support the idea that a twin might have been sent elsewhere.

I can just picture it now. First one out is a girl. Second one out is a boy. The boy will be forever pissed that they changed the law to let a girl take over the reigns.

Tattoo the first Saxe-Coburger to pop out....

Funny thing, I know a tattoo guy in Columbus who might be able to help in exchange for some signed Royal memorabilia... (sorry, bad joke...but as a Buckeye and with a good coach/12-0 record in place, it’s time to laugh a bit)

That last word was either sloppy or witty.

That’s an interesting question. Wonder if the Queen would say - get the boy first.

The baby that has red curly hair and comes out naked will be the pretender.

The royal pregnancy will keep the MSM busy for months and allow them to ignore every illegal thing obama has up his sleeve.
