For some women, pregnancy is virtually a breeze with no morning sickness the whole way through. But for others, it’s months on end of battling almost constant nausea. And not even royalty can make you immune.
Kate Middleton—now expecting her third mini royal—has battled some pretty atrocious symptoms in the past, and this pregnancy is no different. Fortunately, the third time’s the charm: She found a solution—and a pretty tasty one at that.
