Kate Middleton Rushed to the Hospital!

Well, this is rather terrible. It's being reported that Kate Middleton was rushed to the hospital recently after experiencing extreme abdominal pains. Apparently, the Duchess was by herself when suddenly she felt intense Braxton Hicks-like contractions and had to call for help while she was doubled over in pain. Talk about awful!


A royal source said, "Kate was frantic. William wasn’t home, and she was seriously concerned about the pain she was in. She was doubled over in agony, and her immediate fear was for her unborn baby. So she had her aides call emergency services." The Duchess then was taken to the hospital, where she stayed overnight and had a battery of tests done to make sure both she and the baby were okay. Thankfully, they are, but evidently, she was told that she may have an early arrival with this baby.

Even though Kate doesn't have the kind of job that requires her to get up at the crack of dawn each day in order to hitch a bus to make it to the office by 9, she still does have a job -- and she has been working a lot lately. Regardless of what you do, the final months of pregnancy are always really hard. Especially if you have a toddler to care for, as well.

Hopefully, this will be a message for Kate to slow things down these last few months of her pregnancy and not worry about what the queen, or anybody else for that matter, thinks of it. She's carrying a baby, for crying out loud. No appearance or royal obligation can possibly be more important than that!

Do you think Kate has been working too much?
