Seems the world’s all a-Twitter over the news that Britain’s Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton, are expecting a baby — news delivered Monday morning with the announcement that the poor mom-to-be is in the hospital with a severe case of morning sickness.
According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), “Morning sickness is considered severe if you cannot keep any food or fluids down and begin to lose weight. This condition is called hyperemesis gravidarum.” (Hyperemesis = excessive vomiting; gravidarum = during pregnancy)
ACOG maintains that there is no cure for morning sickness. But generous Washington Post readers have chimed in with tips — involving everything from ginger and crackers to Frosted Flakes and bacon — for keeping morning sickness at bay. Check them out — and join in the conversation — here.
