What do Dutchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton and Playboy Playmate Holly Madison have in common? Morning sickness!
The world was abuzz yesterday after finding out Kate is expecting— and hospitalized for acute morning sickness— but now pregnant Playmate Holly Madison has been hospitalized for the same ailments.
"Almost seven months and morning sickness took hold!” Holly tweeted Dec. 3. “Glad to be otherwise OK, though." She also posted an Instagram photo of her Converse sneakers, while she rested in the ER with an IV in her arm. "Thank you for all the get well wishes! Keeping me entertained -- forgot to bring a book with me," she continued.
Similarly to Holly, Kate was admitted yesterday to King Edward VII Hospital in Central London with a case of Hyperemesis Gravidarum a.k.a. HG.
HG is characterized by severe nausea, vomiting, weight loss, dehydration, lightheadedness and fainting. Treatment typically includes hydration, bed rest, and in some cases like the Dutchess’, hospitalization.
Feel better, Holly! We’re pulling for a full recovery.
