The heavily pregnant Married At First Sight star shared a video from her bedside in an Instagram Stories post on Tuesday, explaining that she had been punched again.

“I’m going to take a shower soon and I hope it makes me feel better,” she added hopefully.

Martha said she was preparing as best she could for the impending birth.

“I spent the day in bed buying bay clothes online and charging Michael for them,” she joked, referring to her fiancé Michael Brunelli.

“I actually left the house, just like that, for Betty’s Burgers,” she said. “It’s about my update for the day.”

It comes after Martha revealed she was not having sex during her difficult pregnancy, which was riddled with persistent morning sickness.

The former Married At First Sight star was asked about her bedroom antics when she appeared on KIIS FM’s The Kyle and Jackie O Show.

Martha explained that she is currently staying with her mother in Melbourne after suffering from severe hyperemesis gravidarum – a condition which causes persistent and excessive vomiting during pregnancy.

“So you and Michael, and having sex in your mother’s bed?” asked host Kyle Sandilands.

Martha attempted to quickly close the question line by asking Kyle how often he had sex with his fiancee Tegan Kynaston while she was pregnant with their son Otto. He admitted “once or twice”.

‘We haven’t had our moment once or twice but who knows it’s [Michael’s] birthday [soon],’ she says.

Elsewhere, Martha said she finally got some relief from her hyperemesis gravidarum, an extreme form of morning sickness she suffered from.

“The nausea is relentless,” she said. “There is no food, there is no drink, you don’t want to put anything in your mouth.”

She went on to explain that “hyperemesis babies” are really healthy because the baby “takes everything” from the mother.

Michael recently revealed how Martha’s morning sickness “almost destroyed the couple”.

In an article for Body & Soul, the 31-year-old personal trainer shared that looking after Martha caused him to drop his healthy habits, lose muscle and gain weight.

“Not to say that we are not eternally grateful to have been able to get pregnant, but this experience almost destroyed us, individually,” he wrote before explaining that Martha’s health quickly declined after being got pregnant earlier this year.

Michael explained that at first he thought his symptoms were normal, but over the weeks his discomfort became “extreme”.

“She was vomiting, refusing to eat, could not tolerate drinking water, was nauseous 24 hours a day, and was unable to get out of bed,”

Michael explained that at first he thought his symptoms were normal, but over the weeks his discomfort became “extreme”.

“By the ninth week of pregnancy, Martha had lost 22 lbs, was taking several medications and required regular intravenous drips in the hospital to stay hydrated,” he wrote.

Michael quit working as a personal trainer to care for his future wife – but also saw his mental and physical health decline.

“I stopped exercising, I lost worry about what I was eating, I was stuck in my own head and absent. I had no motivation, no will, no personal attention and no energy. I lost a lot of muscle, gained weight, slept poorly and my overall health declined,” he added.

What is hyperemesis gravidarum?

Hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) is a condition that causes persistent and excessive vomiting during pregnancy.

Sufferers may be sick several times a day and be unable to keep food or water down, impacting their daily lives.

It is unlikely to harm the baby, but if it causes a woman to lose weight during pregnancy, there is an increased risk that her baby will have a low birth weight.

It’s different from nausea during pregnancy – often called morning sickness – which is normal and affects eight out of 10 pregnant women. For the most part, it stops or gets better around weeks 16 to 20.

Meanwhile, HG may not improve at this stage and may last until the baby is born.

Symptoms of HG include prolonged and severe nausea and vomiting, dehydration, weight loss, and low blood pressure.

Being dehydrated increases the risk of having a blood clot – deep vein thrombosis – but this is rare.

It’s unclear what causes the condition, or why some women get it and others don’t.

Some experts believe it may be related to hormonal changes in the body that occur during pregnancy.

And there is evidence that it runs in families, and women who experienced it in their first pregnancy are more likely to have it in subsequent pregnancies.

Women with HG may be given medication to improve their symptoms, such as anti-sickness drugs, vitamins B6 and B12, and steroids.

Some women need to be hospitalized if their nausea cannot be controlled with home medication.

They may need anti-sickness fluids and medications to be given intravenously.
