Chezzi Denyer reveals struggle with crippling pregnancy condition

‘Be gentle on yourself’: Chezzi Denyer shares a candid photo of herself struggling with a crippling pregnancy condition as she reminds others suffering that they’re not alone

Chezzi Denyer suffers from hyperemesis gravidarum, a crippling pregnancy condition that causes severe nausea, vomiting and dehydration.

The 40-year-old, who is expecting her third child with husband Grant Denyer, shared an empowering message for her Instagram fans on Sunday, alongside a candid photo of herself in her pyjamas, laying down on the couch. 

Chezzi said she was posting a picture of her non-smiling self to remind other women suffering that they’re not alone, and to be gentle on themselves. 

‘Be gentle on yourself’: Grant Denyer’s wife Chezzi Denyer, 40, shared a candid photo of herself struggling with a crippling pregnancy condition to Instagram on Sunday (pictured), in order to remind others suffering that they’re not alone 

‘In the essence of keeping real… here’s a sexy snapshot of me struggling with my hyperemesis gravidarum today,’ Chezzi began the post’s caption.

The media personality explained how she wasn’t posting the photo to attract pity or sympathy from her followers.

‘I don’t want pity. I am surviving. I know this path well – It’s my 3rd HG pregnancy. I don’t need help – I’ve got my husband and family looking after me,’ she wrote.

Chezzi said that she was posting the photo to ‘contrast the smiling happy photos’ on her feed, and remind others suffering that they’re not alone.

‘It is difficult and awful. And I see you and I hear and feel what you’re going through. Know you’re not alone. Sending lots of self-care hugs and love today,’ she wrote.

‘Take your time. Be gentle on yourself. Don’t put unrealistic pressure on yourself. It will eventually pass. You’ve got this,’ Chezzi concluded.  

Last week, Chezzi told Now To Love that she’s been in-and-out of hospital for the condition.

The TV producer said: ‘It was almost three months where I was totally bedridden and the kids would come in and I just felt so bad because some days I could only give them ice blocks or I could make them a piece of toast.’ 

‘Even things like the kids will have swimming lessons or something on the weekend and I haven’t washed the towels,’ she added.
