Just because she’s famous, it doesn’t mean Carrie Bickmore is immune to the problems many women face while pregnant.
In fact, The Project star has been refreshingly honest about her struggles, sharing the unglamorous side of pregnancy with her fans.
Carrie’s pregnancy woes
The 37-year-old TV star recently shared a picture of herself in a pelvis brace, captioning the pic: “Now adding a sexy pregnancy pelvis brace to my outfit… fashionista #pelvispain #backpain #everythinghurts.”
Many mums could relate to Carrie, with one telling her: “I’ll never miss those awful pubic bone pains. It’s amazing what we go through to bring such love and joy into the world!”
Another mum added: “I had the same, but as soon as they are born it goes. Not much consolation when you are in a world of pain.”
And another: “I had that with my second child. I had to get up every couple of hours at night because it hurt so much in bed. Had physio and did water classes for pregnant women but it still hurt!”
In June, Carrie – who is also mum to Oliver, 11, and Evie, three – shared a picture of herself crouching down by the toilet.
