Helen Flanagan Hospitalised with Hyperemesis Gravidarumby Laura Driver
Helen Flanagan has revealed on Instagram her morning sickness has been so severe that she’s been hospitalised.
Helen shared a photo of her daughter Matilda holding up a drawing she’d made for her mum, which read: “I hope you better.” Next to the snap, Helen shared another of her hand holding an ultrasound picture while laying in a hospital bed.
In the post’s caption, Helen wrote to fans: “I’ve been a lot quieter on my social recently as I’ve had hyperemis gravidum. I had this with both girls but this time was on another level. I am so relieved to be over the worst and so very happy and so grateful for my baby. My mum has just been the best and I have no idea how I would have got through it without her! Scott’s been amazing with the girls and the nurses at the Royal Bolton Hospital were so lovely which I’m so grateful for. I just can’t wait to meet my little one so in love with them already”.
She then told her fans: “I’m going to film an IGTV on hyperemis soon and any other mummy’s to be with hyperemis I feel you x”.
Helen suffered hyperemesis gravidarum with both her girls’ pregnancies. She previously opened up about it to Ok! magazine, saying: “I have just been really poorly. “I couldn’t go into work and do any filming. I had hyperemesis gravidarum, it lasted for five weeks. It doesn’t sound like a long time but I was just so ill. Luckily it cleared up at ten weeks. I know some women have a horrific time and end up in the hospital for nine months, so I was lucky, but it was horrendous.”
