Good news for the Royal Family…Kate Middleton is pregnant! The bad news? She's in the hospital with a very severe form of morning sickness. It's marked by nausea and vomiting, but on a more extreme scale than regular morning sickness to the point where it can lead to dehydration, malnutrition, weight loss and other problems. It's estimated that at most, only 2% of pregnant women get it. For most women, the issue resolves itself by about the 20th week of pregnancy. Kate will remain in the hospital for several days, after which she'll require, quote, "a period of rest." An interesting side note, though: Some experts say the condition is associated with twins. There's no word if Kate is carrying what the Brits call "an heir and a spare" at the same time.
