Martha Kalifatidis has detailed how her severe pregnancy symptoms have caused her to lose 10kg in just five weeks.
On Monday, the star announced the exciting news about her surprise pregnancy with her fiancé, Michael Brunelli, on social media in which she detailed how “hard” the last couple of months have been following her hyperemesis gravidarum diagnosis.
In a clip shared on her Instagram account, she quipped: "It hasn't been this exciting and wonderful time for us. I feel like I don't want to sound like I'm complaining – you know we are so excited we are so happy.
The mum-to-be said she was bedridden for “two months” after finding out at five weeks she was suffering from severe chronic nausea and vomiting.
She continued: “I was so sick. I could not eat or drink anything. There were days I didn't even get up to pee.
"I lost like 10 kilos in five weeks.”
Martha said she spent a lot of time in and out of the emergency room because she could not get any “relief” from her symptoms. Fortunately, the star was able to receive “life-changing” medication from an “amazing” doctor.
“It is helping me to feel human again,” she smiled.
In the video, the couple said they had hoped to share their exciting news with their fans “but it was hard”.
Michael thanked the followers for expressing their concerns following the couples long social media absence.
He added: "It was also too early to share it so we kinda just had to disappear offline
Instagram post captioned: "It’s time we explained our absence Thank you to everyone that has reached out to us, we really do appreciate it."
Alongside the life update post the couple wrote: "It's been a minute since we've been online so we wanted to explain our situation and make a little bit of an announcement – and that is that Martha is pregnant. "
Fans and celeb pals rushed to the comment section with congratulatory messages. Jadé Tuncdoruk penned: “Omg guys I’m so glad to hear everything’s okay now and so happy for you both!!!! Congratulations.”
Nadia Bartel gushed: “Congrats my love xx such beautiful news.
Ruby Matthews chimed: “I had HG . When people say oh my god I had bad morning sickness it is nothing compared to that. HELL ! Made me so depressed. But YAY welcome to the MUM Clubbbbbbbb.”
Michael later took to the comments to add: "For the record, we don’t know the gender. We haven’t opened the envelope yet," followed by a nervous emoji.
