Amber Rose says her severe morning sickness is “totally worth it” for her baby boy.
The 35-year-old model is battling hyperemesis – the same pregnancy complication Duchess Catherine and Kim Kardashian West suffered – for a second time. Rose dealt with the same condition while carrying her first child with boyfriend Alexander Edwards, and she’s taken to Instagram to share with her followers in a series of videos, how she is coping
Rose revealed that she sleeps “pretty much all day,” but is able to “eat a little bit more” now since she’s in her second trimester.
“So, I said I was gonna 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. For people that don’t know what it is, it’s basically extreme nausea, vomiting, and dehydration,” Rose disclosed. “[I’m] really, really tired. I can eat a little bit more now that I’m in my second trimester, but not much. And I pretty much sleep all day.
“I try to be cute and get my hair done and then I just slept in it and mess it up,” she said.
In the second clip, the actress – who has a six-year-old son, Sebastian with ex-husband Wiz Khalifa – praised all the “resilient” mothers going through challenging pregnancies, and admitted that she tries to be “cute” and show off her bump, but she is profoundly “tired” and just wants to throw up all the time.
“But, all in all, babies are a blessing. God bless women, man. We are resilient. We get through it. It’s really, really hard being pregnant, I’m not gonna lie. To all the women out there that just pop out babies like it’s nothing, God bless you guys because it is just a lot. I wanna be out. I wanna be cute. I wanna show off my belly. I just can’t get off this couch. I’m tired and I just wanna barf all day … but it’s totally worth it. Totally, totally worth it,” she said.
Rose also heaped praise on her partner for looking after her “so well.”
“While I am documenting, I will give a shout out to my baby daddy AE. … I love you hunny.”
After showing her bump on screen, she added: “I am just resting. Shout out to AE, he’s so amazing and takes care of me so well, he’s such a good guy.”
The “Sister Code” star reportedly spent some time in hospital at Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre for a few days to have intravenous treatments for her condition, TMZ reported.
