Carrie Bickmore Shares Her Struggles with Morning Sickness and Receives Plenty of Advice from Fellow Celebs

Four days after announcing her third pregnancy, Carrie Bickmore has opened up about her struggles with “relentless” morning sickness and has received thousands of comments from her Instagram followers offering advice, including many from her celebrity friends.

“I thought it would have past by now but it’s not going away,” she wrote on her Instagram selfie in front of a toilet. “Why the hell is it called morning sickness when it can be 24/7! Relentless. If I am hungry I feel sick, if I eat I feel sick, if I sleep I feel sick.”

The 37-year-old tv and radio personality added that certain things make her feel sick while another popular favourite — chips — suits her just fine.

“Coffee 🙅‍♀️🤢, Healthy food 🙅‍♀️🤢 water 🙅‍♀️🤢 pregnancy tablets 🙅‍♀️🤢CHIPS 👍 😍.”

Shortly after sharing her post, Carrie’s celebrity mates chimed in with messages of sympathy and support, as well as some personal advice.

“Ohhhh. We/I feel for you!” Zoë Foster Blake (who’s mum to Sonny, 4, and Rudy, 11 months, with husband Hamish Blake) commented. “I got through 17 weeks of hell by eating hash browns, Happy Meals, Airwaves gum, and laying on the floor, dying.”

Former gladiator Tiffiny Hall, who has 9-month-old son Arnold with husband Ed Kavalee, chimed in, “It is the worst! Lasted 9 months for me. Water was the worst could only drink milk for 9 months. Jellybeans/salty stuff helped me…Hope it passes quick sticks for you!”

Comedian and mum-of-twins Meshel Laurie offered some comforting words: “The worse the sickness the better the baby.”

And Carrie’s Hit radio co-host Tommy Little joked, “Maybe you need to calm down on the boozing too?”

She seemed to appreciate all of the support, writing: “You all have the best advice! Will work my way through the suggestions!”

Carrie announced her pregnancy on Instagram four days ago with a sweet family video.

Carrie is already mum to Evie, 3, with partner Chris Walker, and Oliver, 10, with late husband Greg Lange.

We wish her all the very best for a safe and healthy pregnancy and birth.
