Amber Rose's second pregnancy is not going as planned.
On Monday (May 27), the model took to Instagram to reveal that she's she’s suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum, an intense variation of morning sickness that she also battled while pregnant with her now-6-year-old son Sebastian Taylor. "I said I was going to document this pregnancy a little bit more than I did with Sebastian, 'cause with Sebastian I had hyperemesis, and I have hyperemesis again with this baby," the 35-year-old star admitted in a video to her 18.7 million followers. "And for people that don’t know what it is, it’s basically extreme nausea, vomiting and dehydration. I’m really, really tired. I can eat a little bit more now ’cause I’m in my second trimester, but not much."
Rose, who is expecting a baby boy with boyfriend Alexander "A.E." in October, made the confession while relaxing on her couch and it seems like it has been difficult for her to get keep up with life outside of sleep. "I try to like, be cute and get my hair done and then I just slept in it and messed it up," she added. According to the American Pregnancy Association, most women feel relief from their symptoms between weeks 14 and 20 gestation. Beyond Rose, Amy Shumer and Kate Middleton have also battled with hyperemesis gravidarum.
Nonetheless, Rose emphasized that pregnancy struggles are still worth the joy of giving birth. "To all the women out there who pop out babies like it's nothing, god bless you guys, 'cause it is just a lot," she continued. "I want to be out, I want to be cute, I want to show off my belly, but I just can't get off this couch. I'm tired, and I just want to barf all day, it's just not fun. But it's totally worth it."
