    Pregnant women who suffer from this can throw up dozens of times a day, and may need to be hospitalized. Kate was forced to reveal all three of her pregnancies in the first trimester, after being spotted at the hospital. She was so sick in the first trimester that she even had to miss Prince George's first day of school.

    Kate has made a couple of brief appearances in the past week, but it's understood that even if she's feeling much better by next month, she's still going to sit this one out. We don't blame her -- there's a big difference between making an appearance and going on a days-long tour.

  • She needs to stay healthy and safe while that baby grows.
