The 34-year-old sister of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, was rumoured to be pregnant with her first child with husband James Matthews, and she has now officially confirmed the happy news. Pippa made her confession whilst adding that she’s been lucky enough to avoid the severe morning sickness that her older sister - who has Prince George, forum Prince Charlotte, two, and Prince Louis, one month, with her husband Prince William - was plagued by during her three pregnancies. She revealed: “I was lucky to pass the 12-week scan without suffering from morning sickness. That meant I was able to carry on as normal. “When I learned the happy news that I was pregnant I realised I needed to adjust my 4 to 5-day-a-week routine. “I’ve noticed my body change but through exercise I feel it’s being strengthened. I’m fanatical about sport and have looked at loads of books and websites on exercise during pregnancy but have been disappointed by the … [Read more...] about Pippa Middleton confirms she’s pregnant with her first child: ‘I was lucky to pass the 12-week scan without morning sickness’

PREGNANT Pippa Middleton has revealed she has escaped morning sickness in her first trimester - unlike her sister Kate. The Duchess of Cambridge suffered debilitating sickness during all of her pregnancies but Pippa said she was "lucky" not to. The 34-year-old, who is expecting her first child with her new husband James Matthews, shared details of her pregnancy in a column. The young mum-to-be revealed she had worried about what exercise she could continue to do while pregnant. And added she had given up her runs, but was working on her abs to make sure she can fit into her "old favourite jeans" after the baby is born. She wrote in her Waitrose Weekend piece: "I was lucky to pass the 12-week scan without suffering from morning sickness. Kate's morning sickness saw her rushed to Aberdeen hospital while visiting the Queen in Balmoral two weeks ago "This being my first pregnancy, I had so many questions I felt were still unanswered. "I wanted to know things like — would I strain if … [Read more...] about Pregnant Pippa Middleton escapes morning sickness in first trimester – unlike unlucky sister Kate
THIS mum thinks her colleague is faking severe morning sickness to go away on holiday - so should she report her suspicions to her boss? Posting on Mumsnet, the woman explained her colleague, who is 14 weeks pregnant, has been signed off for six weeks (two weeks at a time) with severe hypermesis - and still has a week left on her sick note. Hypermesis gravidarum is the same extreme morning sickness Kate Middleton suffered from and it strikes one in 100 women in the early stages of their pregnancy. But, by a complete coincidence, the pair have a mutual friend - who has uploaded pics of her colleague on holiday in Greece, where she is still enjoying. Appleofmypie said: "My work colleague is in most of them - sunbathing, eating, swimming in the sea, playing volleyball. "She has obviously blocked me as she is tagged in the pictures but her name is unclickable. "I’m gonna sound like a complete cow but I think she’s faking her sickness. "She’s on full pay from work and … [Read more...] about Mum thinks her colleague is faking her severe morning sickness to go on holiday…but should she report her?
Kate Middleton may have assisted awareness of the condition, but it's believed one in 100 women will experience hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) in the early stages of their pregnancy. Excessive nausea and vomiting is completely debilitating, and makes having a normal routine practically impossible. More severe than morning sickness - which in itself is unpleasant enough - it can result in hospitalisation. Meaning when someone reveals they're suffering from HG , it's important to take that seriously. But when one mum spotted some photos of a colleague who has been signed off work with HG on Facebook, she began to have her doubts... "One of my team at work is 14 weeks pregnant. "She's been off sick for 5 weeks with severe hyperemesis and still has a week left on her sick note (she's being signed off for 2 weeks at a time)," she explained on Mumsnet . Facebook friends with a friend of mine. Not only that, but the mum adds: "She has obviously blocked me as she is tagged in the pictures … [Read more...] about Mum accuses colleague of faking severe morning sickness after Facebook discovery
A MUM has opened up about the ‘orgasmic’ birth of her second child claiming the experience was like having “deep intense sex”. Amandine Mangin, 29, suffered a painful delivery with her firstborn, Alyssia, now five, and was determined it not be repeated when she fell pregnant with her second, Ilya, now five months. A trained prenatal yoga teacher, she had already researched a ‘pleasurable birth’ and knew that was what she wanted for her second delivery. Despite a rocky beginning suffering morning sickness, by the end of the first trimester Amandine says she was blossoming. The mum-of-two said: “The idea of giving birth in pleasure felt like a new world was opening to me! “After the surprising effect of the idea, it felt logical. “We conceive our babies in pleasure, wouldn’t it be normal and natural to bring forth our baby in pleasure?” By the time her second was due, she said she had all the “tools” to ride … [Read more...] about Mum of two reveals what it’s like to have an orgasmic birth… and how you can do it too
