MAFS star Martha Kalifatidis has shared a 3D sonogram of her baby who is due in early March.
The reality star is gearing up to welcome her and her fiance Michael Brunelli’s baby, who was originally due on Febuary 28th. However, the date has since been pushed back a week.
Martha shared a selfie showing her pregnant belly and captioned the pic, “OTW to an OB appointment”. Less than an hour later, she shared a 3D sonogram of the baby’s face.
Martha has been open about her struggle with hyperemesis gravidarum throughout his pregnancy, which is essentially very severe morning sickness and involves symptoms like chronic nausea, vomiting, dizziness and electrolyte disturbance.
Back in September, Martha and Michael took to Instagram to share the news of their pregnancy. However, Martha told her followers that her pregnancy had been an uphill battle, as she was diagnosed with a severe case of hyperemesis gravidarum.
At the time, Martha explained the effect the condition – which occurs in an estimated 0.5 to 2% of pregnant women – has had on her.
“At five weeks I was diagnosed with hyperemesis gravidarum, which is basically severe chronic nausea and vomiting with no relief. It is like 24/7. I literally did not get out of bed for two months, I was so sick. I could not eat or drink anything. There were days that I did not even get up to pee,” she said at the time

Weeks later, she went into more detail about the symptoms she’d experienced during an interview with Daily Telegraph.
“It has been rough, really rough,” she told the publication, adding that she is 16 weeks pregnant.
She continued, “It’s like you’ve got gastro, you’re hungover and you’re on a boat. It is getting a bit better, but this is anything but fun.”
