How bad can morning sickness get? I have never heard of someone staying at a hospital for it. She must be a) one sick mama or b) one frail little biddy.

They're giving her fresh infusions of infant blood per the royal custom. It's considered best to drain a newborn within minutes, and no way are the royals going to allow some filthy commoner into the palace to give birth, so they go to where the babies are.

Kate is not a princess of her own accord -- she's a Duchess.

However, it would be proper to call her "Princess William" as the spouse of Prince William.

Fair enough, but, what do you think the odds that she actually has that are?

BAD. My oldest sis was on an IV for her second kid because of it, and the next oldest was ordered onto complete bedrest at 3 months because of how it hit her (both medical professionals BTW, so it drove them crazy because they knew it normally wasn;t like that)

Oddly both stopped thier respective family creation after two kids each.

As an American, I honestly couldn't give a shiat less about any royal family unless they are giving up their 'birthright' and getting actual jobs to work for their livings like the rest of us. How did they not get ousted with the rest of their inbred cousins on the continent again?

Yeah, I've been learned on this one. My first thought was "ew. what a spoiled little princess" but I have since reversed that to my default of "I'm an idiot that doesn't know"

Considering the size of the silver spoon in his mouth that he grew up with, I really consider that the least he could possibly do to give back. Anyone else who takes on that job gets my highest respect, as he would if he decided that God didn't make him special by birthright to rule over anyone. fark all royalty, everywhere.
 
2012-12-05 01:51:00 PM  
I don't give a shiate about royalty but calling someone in the hospital is wrong.

I also don't care for those morning show pranking bullshiate on the drive to work either.

It is what made me go to satellite radio/Pandora/MP3 in the car.

Source4leko: irthright to rule over anyone.


Aww, cute little idiot thinks that the constitutional monarch in England rules over people. I'm curious, who did you think David Cameron was? The Queen's boy toy?

I'm not going to go full length on this again, but there are numerous benefits to separating the roles of Head of State and Head of Government (which is why a lot of countries with no monarch have both a President (HoS) and prime Minister (HoG)). Not to mention that the monarchy brings in a lot of tourist money, and the lands that would otherwise belong to Elizabeth Windsor, private citizen, are fairly profitable attractions in themselves. They generate a lot more money for the British government than the cost, why wouldn't they keep them around?

Sane people don't have a problem with Constituional Monarchies. Absolute Monarchies or dictatorships? Yeah, those are problematic. But when you're railing against the Queen of England, you're barking up the wrong tree.

Extreme morning sickness requires intravenous drips, else risk very rapid dehydration.

It's not particularly rare, and is often fatal to the foetus if untreated, and can be fatal to the mother.

It's not "Gee, I feel a bit queasy in the morning", hyperemesis gravidarum is life threatening to mother and especially child.

I had a friend who had to carry an IV pump going to a port implanted in her chest to keep hydrated. She was hospitalized several times, and even had some liver damage

Given we in the UK get news reports that the US president has bought a new dog or pardoned a turkey, you can shut your whore mouth.
 
2012-12-05 02:01:10 PM  
As for the Royals I couldn't care any less. The coverage is way more than it should be.

On the other hand its a personal family medical issue. Calling the hospital is just disrespectful no matter who the patient is. Those radio people should be fired and kicked in the junk on the way out the door.

Nope. I realize they don't actually rule over people. just that they are the biggest welfare queens in the Western Civilization.

These assholes don't have the balls to do what I did: actually, formally, and legally, renounce fealty to the Queen.

I actually did that (when I became American).

If you're that much opposed to the monarchy, emigrate to a republic.

If you don't like that, take it up with the citizens of Britain, who continue to support this institution, and the Queen's pension, instead of harassing her grandson's wife in hospital.
