Many of Martha’s fans were quick to sympathise with her struggle, with one telling her to ‘hang in there’ and another writing ‘it will be worth it’ once her baby is born.
Martha recently revealed her February due date had been pushed to March 6.
‘Every hour feels like a day I have work commitments looming over my head and can’t help but feel like I’ve completely neglected everything I worked so hard to build,’ she continued. ‘I feel like I’m at breaking point.’

She went on to say she spent four days on the couch thinking she might have had Covid as she struggled with energy and a sore throat.
‘I forced myself to get up and go get food just for some momentum, but I couldn’t even get myself out of the car once we arrived,’ she said.
Michael and Martha revealed they were expecting their first child together in 2022 and it hasn’t been smooth sailing.
Martha told her fans her pregnancy had been particularly difficult and she had been bedridden for days on end
Martha told The Daily Telegraph in September she had been diagnosed with hyperemesis gravidarum, and her symptoms had manifested in numerous painful ways.
‘It’s like you’ve got gastro, you’re hungover and you’re on a boat. This is anything but fun,’ she said of the condition.
