Aussie model Jennifer Hawkins has opened up about her pregnancy struggles in an Instagram post, and we couldn’t sympathise more.

Taking to the social media platform, the stunning blonde divulged that she had been experiencing the dreaded morning sickness that so often accompanies pregnancy - but she had a different, more accurate name for it.

“So happy my all day nausea is finally easing up!” she wrote in a caption accompanying a photo of herself posing on a lounge.

She accompanied the comment with an all-too relatable hashtag, ‘#jeanswontbuttonup’ which fans and friends alike were loving.

One celebrity pal who weighed in was Megan Gale, who had some sage advice to share with the mum-to-be.

“You need to do the hair tie on the top button trick,” she advised her fellow top model.

“Yes! I have a hair band on these jeans,” Jennifer responded. “Next stop maternity jeans.”

The Project host Carrie Bickmore zeroed in on the morning sickness, agreeing that the nausea is the ‘absolute worst’.

“Just keep your eye on the cute squishy prize at the end,” the mum-of-three advised.
