Pregnant with baby number three, Kate Middleton hasn't been able to shake the morning sickness she experienced when expecting Princess Charlotte and Prince George. The technical term, hyperemesis gravidarum, is as severe as it sounds and the excessive nausea and vomiting makes it difficult for Kate to attend events or even fully function as a mom to her two little ones. Any mom who has experienced this as well knows you'll try just about anything to help ease the symptoms -- and Kate is doing just that. Hello! magazine reports that at a recent event, Prince William was asked how the Duchess of Cambridge was feeling, and he shared what remedies Kate was trying to ease her morning sickness ... and how well they were working.

  • Nausea during pregnancy is awful.

    It's incredible what women are capable of doing (like making babies), but it's also such a challenge when our bodies defy us. But moms are strong and we press on ... in sickness and in health. And that's what Kate has been doing. She's been able to do some public appearances, but when her condition worsened, she had to share the news that she was pregnant (perhaps earlier than planned) because of her extreme nausea.

  • There are remedies to try.

    Some women swear by pressure point bands to wear on your wrists to help ease the nausea. Others say mint, toast, acupuncture, and even exercise worked for them. But in Kate's extreme case, those things did not come to her aid. What was thought to help her most is ginger biscuits.

  • But they aren't working for Kate either.

    A lot of hope was put into these ginger biscuits, but unfortunately they aren't working either. Prince William spoke at a reception for the Metropolitan and City Police Orphans Fund at London's Guildhall and said that Kate was feeling much better, "But there's not much ginger can do to stop that. We've done all that." 

  • Kate is strong -- she's handling this.

    This condition isn't easy to deal with, but Kate knows the dril, having experienced this twice before. She knows her body, knows how to honor it and how she's feeling, and is doing what she needs to do to get through it. We may not see much of her in the coming weeks, but if we do we'll take it as a sign that she found what works for her or that the symptoms have subsided. The overwhelming happiness of expecting another child is certainly something to help her along the way, too.
