Heavily pregnant Married At First Sight star Tracey Jewel hospitalised
37yo Married At First Sight’s Tracey Jewel was admitted into hospital care on Tuesday. The mum-of-one is experiencing complications as she prepares to welcome her second child in just a matter of weeks.
Sharing a photo of her bump with her fans on Instagram, the reality star is seen to be laying in a hospital bed.
She captioned the post: “Still pregnant and not so patiently waiting!
“This pregnancy has tested me in a lot of ways. Having an irritable uterus, the last week and has been painful and arduous, in and out of hospital overnight stays and being monitored.”
“This is how we hang for now – I know he will come at the perfect time so I’m just going to try and enjoy the last days of pregnancy while navigating the pain and exhaustion.
“I’m so proud of mine! Bed rest and staying positive with an amazing supportive hubby”.
An irritable uterus is a condition that occurs where the uterus experiences regular, strong contractions similar to Braxton-Hicks.
Women who the condition affects often end up on bedrest, like Tracey until real labour begins.
Tracey, who already has 10-year-old daughter Grace from a previous relationship is expecting a baby boy with new husband Nathan Constable in the coming month.
The high school sweethearts reunited and were married in February in a surprise ceremony.

Harry and Meghan added that their daughter will be born in summertime, which in the US is between June and August.
Oprah responded by sweetly remarking: “To have a boy and then a girl – what more can you ask for?”
However this will be the Duke and Duchess’ final child.
“Two it is,” Prince Harry stated.

Speaking to British Vogue from her home in Gloucestershire, the songstress said she had performed a live-streamed show at the V&A Museum in August before making the discovery.
“We did the one show. I was pregnant and had no idea. That was (around) the time when Caspar and I went away briefly when we were allowed to for our one-year anniversary, and that’s basically when we found out,” Ellie said.
“It was crazy because it was our one-year anniversary.
“That was not the plan. The thought of getting pregnant didn’t seem like it could be a reality. Becoming pregnant kind of made me feel human,” the Love Me Like You Do singer confessed.
“I want a better word than womanly, (but) I have curves I’ve never had before. I’m enjoying it. My husband’s enjoying it.”
The pair kept the pregnancy under wraps for so long. Something Ellie attributed to the fact that they were almost in denial about it all.
The star said it all happened “really quickly” and that you “almost don’t believe it at first”.
“You’re still eating the same, looking the same, for a while I was probably in denial,” she said.
