Amber Portwood: I Had BRUTAL Morning Sickness the Whole Pregnancy!

In the wee hours of Tuesday morning, Amber Portwood welcomed her baby boy.

Amber is happy that her son is born and that she’s given Leah a baby brother. But … she is also relieved.

Apparently, Amber’s pregnancy was harder on her than she ever let on. This sounds brutal.

A source tells People that Amber Portwood’s pregnancy complications were intensely rough on her.

“Amber spent almost her whole pregnant feeling sick.”

A little morning sickness — which involves, ugh, vomiting — is not uncommon early on during pregnancies. For some women, it’s the first indicator that they are pregnant.

“Not just the first trimester, and not just in the mornings.”

That sounds like a truly miserable existence.

“She was sick day and night.”

That is heartbreaking to hear.

“It was brutal.”

The good news, of course, is that Amber Portwood welcomed her son with Andrew Glennon.

“Baby James is here and Amber is over the moon”

He was born weighing 7 pounds and 11 ounces, which is above average but doesn’t make him a goliath by any measure.

We knew that he was born early on Tuesday, but the insider confirms that he was born at 1:39 in the morning. That’s very, very early.

All of that suffering must have felt worth it when she looked at his tiny little face, right?

Apparently, the extreme sickness did not come as a surprise — because she had gone through the same thing with Leah.

“It was the same problem she had in her first pregnancy, she was just sick all the time.”

Nine years is a long time, but not long enough to forget what it’s like to spend nine months being betrayed by your own body.

But, apparently, she felt that it would be worth it.

“In spite of all that she was just so happy to be starting over with a guy like Andrew.”

That’s nice to hear, since fans have heard how messy Amber and Andrew’s relationship is.

“And now that the baby is here, they are over the moon.”

Okay, that insider needs to find some new idioms. (But we’re all guilty of that from time to time)

This wasn’t actually a huge surprise to Amber’s fans.

While she didn’t tell fans exactly how bad it was, she certainly let people know that her pregnancy was not all smooth sailing.

When Amber went into early labor, she was unable to sleep, and she shared with her fans that she was having a hard time.

But that was last weekend, just two days before she gave birth.

it is absolutely horrifying to imagine that she was sick at all hours of the day.

Even if that insider is exaggerating … many people are amazed that she decided to have another baby at all, given what she was in for.

The first photos of sweet baby James that we’ve seen are so cute.

And Amber seems so at peace, too.

We also love seeing 9-year-old Leah cradling her baby brother.

That’s a hell of an age difference. In a lot of households, this would lead to Leah being yet another primary caregiver for her little sibling.

But we’re sure that Leah and baby James will have plenty of time to bond with each other and forge a beautiful sibling relationship.

We are so sorry to hear that Amber had such a hard time bringing him into this world, however. But at least that ordeal is in the past.

Meghan Markle is NOT a Witch and Did Not Magically Cure Kate Middleton of Morning Sickness

We hate to be the bearers of bad news, but it sounds like Meghan Markle is not a witch.

Hmmm … this might require some context.

You see, it’s about a story relating to Kate Middleton’s pregnancy. …

Kate Middleton is pregnant with her third royal baby.

Everyone’s excited about it.

Admittedly, this kind of thing has diminishing returns in terms of public excitement, but still, everybody’s pumped.

Among other things, another royal child will be a welcome distraction to the Brits in the face of the looming chaos and despair that is Brexit.

Over a week before they announced Kate’s pregnancy, we told you that Kate Middleton was probably pregnant again.

We even listed the reasons why — one of which being that there were signs that she was “ill.”

Kate is known to suffer from particularly unpleasant morning sickness.

Specifically, she has hyperemesis gravidarum, which means that her morning sickness is so unpleasant that it has a name that sounds like a Harry Potter spell.

Which brings us to Meghan Markle and her alleged healing powers:

So, there was a story going around that said that Kate Middleton couldn’t eat because of her extreme morning sickness.

(Sorry, late ’90s television shows — not everything’s better when it’s “extreme”)

That sounds totally believable, right? Morning sickness, even the normal kind, can be hell on the body.

Star came forward with a story in which their source claims that Meghan Markle provided a solution to Kate Middleton’s problems.

“Meghan put her culinary expertise to royal use. She researched all-natural, ancient remedies for morning sickness, then made a mild broth using organic herbs.”

There’s … so much in that.

One, there’s the implication that MegMar was able to fix something that Kate’s doctors could not.

Two, the always dubious “all-natural ancient remedies.” We’re all for herbal remedies (sometimes) but just because people did something a long time ago doesn’t mean that it works.

Three, citing her “culinary expertise” is next-level amazing. Using food to heal an illness is something normally reserved for video games.

“[Markle] had it rushed to Kate’s bed chamber.”

The use of the word “chamber” is always more fun than “rooms.” Because, you know, they’re royalty.

“Grateful Prince William gushed it was the first thing his pale princess had been able to get down in days.”

Nice alliteration.

So, like we said, we are sad to say that Meghan Markle does not seem to be a witch.

We’re sure that this would be great relief to Prince Harry’s ancestor, King James I, who was absolutely terrified of witches to the point where he’d have probably fainted on the spot if someone had offered to read his palm.

But gosh, it sure is less interesting than Prince Harry’s girlfriend and very likely his future wife secretly being able to cure incurable ails through natural remedies and the culinary arts.

But Gossip Cop reports that the story is bogus.

They report that a reliable source close to Meghan Markle assured them that it’s a total fabrication.

So … that’s that.

The fact of the matter is that people are thirsty for stories showing what kind of relationship Meghan Markle has with Harry’s family.

Kate Middleton was an outsider in that she wasn’t royalty already. That was, at the time, a big deal.

Meghan Markle is a divorced actress and she’s American. We’ve come a long way from Princess Diana having had to “prove” her virginity.

But … some worry that Meghan is such an outsider that Harry’s family might just put on polite smiles in public but secretly be discouraging their union.

People want reassurance that she’ll get along well with the people who could very well become her in-laws.

That, we imagine, is why this story had such appeal.

And, again, there’s entertainment value in an actress having magical powers. Even if it’s not true.


Kate Middleton: Already Suffering Severe Morning Sickness?

Yesterday, the world learned that Kate Middleton is pregnant with her third child.

While it’s joyous news that’s been met with applause and well-wishes from the global community, there has been some concern among those who follow Kate’s personal life closely.

During her first two pregnancies, Kate suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum, a rare condition that results in morning sickness so severe it often leads to hospitalization.

The illness is generally at its worst in the first months of pregnancy, and according to Life & Style, Kate spent time in the emergency room shortly after learning of her third pregnancy.

The Duchess of Cambridge was rushed to a medical facility in Marleybone, London last month, for what was initially reported as a bout of dehydration and exhaustion.

It’s now widely believed that her condition was caused by hyperemesis gravidarum.

The illness typically results in nausea and uncontrollable vomiting.

Sadly, these difficulties are nothing new for the 35-year-old.

Kate was hospitalized for the first time while she was pregnant with Prince George.

She became ill again while pregnant with Princess Charlotte, but was treated at home in Kensington Palace.

The fact that she was rushed to an emergency room again this time around has led many to the conclusion that the symptoms are more severe than they were during her last pregnancy.

Unfortunately for Kate, the illness often becomes more unmanageable with age.

Fortunately, however, it’s at its worst during the first trimester, so the worst might already be over.

Whatever the case, Kate’s latest struggle is a reminder of what’s led fans all over the world to fall in love with the soon-to-be mum of three.

Despite knowing that battling another round of severe illness, Kate has put a smile on her face and done her best to downplay her disease.

Royals are generally thought of as being a particularly rugged breed, but coping with a serious medical issue in the public eye requires a toughness few are capable of.

Thus far, Kate has handled her most recent battle with hyperemesis gravidarum the same way she handled the first two – with courage and grace befitting a future queen.

We’ll keep you updated on Kate’s condition as more information becomes available.
