Martha Kalifatidis from Married At First Sight is bedridden due to severe morning sickness

Martha Kalifatidis has revealed that her battle with hyperemesis gravidarum has receded.

The former Married At First Sight star briefly felt better but told her fans on Sunday that she was bedridden again as she battled extreme nausea.

The 34-year-old shared a photo of herself on Instagram Stories looking ashen and noticeably unwell.

She also posted a video of fiancé Michael Brunelli having to help her get dressed while she lay in bed.

“I had a good day yesterday but here we are again today,” she captioned the clip.

It comes after Martha shared a photo of herself at 16 weeks pregnant last week, showing how thin her battle with hyperemesis gravidarum has left her.

The influencer, who is expecting her first child, posted the picture to Instagram Stories.

In the photo, she looks frail and pale, her clothes hanging from her noticeably thinner body after losing 10 kilos.

She revealed in her caption that she is now 16 weeks into a difficult pregnancy that has left her so ill she has not been able to leave her bed for months.

Martha and Michael announced they were expecting their first child together, explaining that Martha has been absent from social media because she has hyperemesis gravidarum, which causes prolonged and excessive nausea and vomiting in pregnant women.

The reality star went offline for several weeks, prompting concerns for her wellbeing.

The couple explained they will have to wait until Martha is feeling better and has reached a safe point in her pregnancy before sharing their news.

“We wanted to explain our situation and make a little announcement. Martha is pregnant,” Michael said in the video.

“It wasn’t that exciting, wonderful time for us. I don’t want to sound like I’m complaining,’ Martha added.

“I was so sick. I couldn’t eat or drink anything. There were days when I didn’t even get up to pee. I lost ten pounds in five weeks.

“We’ve been in and out of the ER and the hospital.”

The couple also shared harrowing videos of Martha’s multiple hospital and doctor visits.

“I don’t know, Michael, if I’ll survive,” Martha says in a clip, to which her future husband replies, “You will.”

‘I do not know. I don’t know if I want to do this. I don’t know if I can do that,” Martha continues.

“I don’t know how you feel,” he says. “But we will get through it.”

In his caption, Michael expressed his grief and admitted he had felt “utterly helpless” during Martha’s illness.

He said Martha had been “in bed 24 hours a day for most of the last 10 weeks, dehydrated, nauseated, vomiting, restless, tired, anxious, exhausted and unable to sleep or eat properly.”

Despite visiting the hospital several times, receiving medical advice and being prescribed various medications, she still suffers from the disease.

“But she’s a bloody warrior! And so it is with every other woman diagnosed with HG [hyperemesis gravidarum] or any pregnancy-related condition,” Michael added.
