Kate visited her old primary school yesterday, St Andrews in Berkshire.

Poor thing. I was so glad (and lucky!) I didn't have morning sickness with any of my pregnancies.

Let the name speculation begin!   :)

As William is determined to keep his mother's memory alive, I definitely think Diana will be one of the names for a girl but it won't be the first name.

I think boy or girl, it will be pretty traditional.

The official announcement of the Duchess of Cambridge's pregnancy apparently has come from the Duke of Cambridge's Office at St. James Palace, not from Buckingham Palace.  I'm probably the only one who's mind immediately goes to these things, but I wonder why?  What things are issued by BP, and which are issued by the individual Royal Households?

Looking back through the press releases on the Monarchy website, I find that it was the press secretary for the Queen (Buckingham Palace) who announced the engagement of the Prince of Wales and Mrs. Parker-Bowles (the Princes' own household didn't).  BP also announced the deaths of Princess Margaret and the Queen Mother, as well as the pregnancy of the Countess of Wessex and subsequent birth of Viscount Severn.  BP even announced Peter Phillips's engagement (his mother's household didn't).

So why would St. James announce this pregnancy rather than BP?

I'm filled with happiness for the Duke and Duchess! It does make be a tad nervous that they announced the baby prior to the 12 week (1st trimester) mark. Poor girl, being nauseous is awful.

So why would St. James announce this pregnancy rather than BP?

I heard that the pregnancy was only confirmed to the couple when she was admitted to the hospital. Perhaps they had to move quickly to prevent any leaking to the press? That could explain the announcement prior to 12 weeks as well. Even if it wasn't confirmed to them then, just the fact they would have to say why she was in the hospital would lead to them having to more quickly announce than might have otherwise been planned.

Hmmm.....  :)

"Professor Tim Draycott, a consultant obstetrician at the University of Bristol, said the condition was common in the early weeks of pregnancy but did not put the baby at any increased risk, although in extreme cases it can lead to the baby being born with a slightly low birth weight. Draycott told Reuters it may also indicate more than one royal baby may be in the offing."

Twins are also more common the older you get--especially past 30. Just for the sake of it, it would be interesting with the new law if she had twins--boy and girl. Better get that birth order absolutely straight on the certificates. :)

Here's a shot of the new bangs:

Just saw this on The Telegraph:

"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge announced their pregnancy early amid concerns that it would become public on Twitter and the internet.

The Duchess, who is less than 12 weeks pregnant, decided to make news of her pregnancy public after she was taken to hospital because she was suffering from a severe form of morning sickness. A royal source confirmed that the couple were concerned that news of their pregnancy would leak out and be repeated on Twitter and other social-networking websites. Their decision comes amid growing concern that the internet appears beyond the reach of regulation. Lord Justice Leveson concluded it was an “ethical vacuum” which the press should seek to rise above."

It ceratinly would be interesting if the Duchess is pregnant with twins. I've read this condition is 'Caused by unusual increase in pregnancy hormone, which can be a sign a woman is pregnant with twins' so maybe? Maybe not? Who knows until any more news comes out!

Latest is Prince William has left the hospital (just over an hour ago). Also the royal baby will take the title of Prince/Princess.
