Helen’s showed off her blossoming bump in the photo taken on set a few weeks ago.

She looked gorgeous in her grey lace lingerie, with pretty floral detailing, as she sat in a chair and played with her hair.

Helen told her fans she hadn’t edited the photo, in line with her recent vow to keep her social media feed unfiltered. ‘#bts of my @pourmoiltd shoot for my autumn edit glam @makeupbyashleyuk @jaybirminghamhair #noedit,’ she captioned the shot.

It’s been a tough time for the star, who recently spoke out about how extreme morning sickness has made her pregnancy a ‘real challenge’. 

The former Coronation Street actress, 30, who is expecting her third child in March, revealed on Instagram on Wednesday she has felt ‘weak most days’ and has ‘struggled to eat’.

Helen showed off her blossoming bump in a maternity bra and joggers and wrote: ‘I haven’t found this pregnancy easy at all.’ 

The I’m A Celebrity star said she has had Hyperemesis Gravidarum, a pregnancy complication that is characterised by severe nausea, vomiting, weight loss, and dehydration.

She wrote: ‘I had it before with both girls but this time has been SO tough. I felt weak most days and really struggled to eat – it was a vicious circle because the more hungry I got, the more sick I was. 

‘It made me feel really low, it just felt like it would never end.  

‘No one wants to feel like that, especially during a time that should be so exciting. The entire experience has been a real challenge and exhausting both physically and mentally.

‘One of the worst things about HG is how isolating it is. I couldn’t go out, I couldn’t cook, even talking on the phone for too long would make me ill.’ 

Helen went on to say how she used the Peanut app to gain comfort from other mothers-to-be. 

The soap star excitedly revealed she is expecting her third child with footballer fiancé Scott Sinclair, 31, late last month.  

The couple are already parents to Matilda, five, and Delilah, two.

The couple had planned to tie the knot this year after getting engaged in 2018, but have been forced to put their wedding on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

They are yet to discover the sex of their unborn baby but have told daughters Matilda and Delilah whatever they have will be perfect for the family.

WHAT IS HYPEREMESIS GRAVIDARUM?

Hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) is defined as severe nausea and vomiting during pregnancy.

Celebrities who’ve been open about their own battles with HG include:

  • The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton 
  • Kim Kardashian
  • Kourtney Kardashian
  • Debra Messing
  • Kelly Clarkson
  • Tia Mowry
  • Tori Spelling 
  • Amy Schumer 

It affects up to two percent of pregnant women.  

HG symptoms usually appear between weeks four and six and peak at 9-to-13 weeks.

Up to 20 per cent of sufferers experience symptoms up to weeks 14-to-20, however, most have relief in the later stages.

Unlike morning sickness, which affects up to 80 percent of pregnant women, HG causes severe dehydration and prevents sufferers from keeping any food down.

Other symptoms include:

  • Losing five percent or more of their pre-pregnancy weight
  • Reduced urination
  • Headaches
  • Confusion
  • Fainting
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Loss of skin elasticity
  • A rapid heart rate  

Some HG cases require hospitalization where women can receive IV fluids and nutrition. 

HG’s cause was thought to be hormonal, however, research suggests it may be due to genetic variations.
