She speaks to an entire nation every day like it's no big deal, but there are some things that still take pregnant radio host Fifi Box by surprise.
In a candid Instagram post, the 41-year-old posted an image of herself looking as though she was experiencing great pain, with television presenter and close friend Lisa Wilkinson on-hand trying her best to help.
But what was really going on you ask? Apparently, it was all to do with "Pregnancy-related sciatica."

The condition is known to occur during pregnancy, usually consisting of strong lower back pain which can come in pangs, tingling or numbness.
Lucky for the radio host, seasoned pro Lisa was on-hand to help out, giving Fifi a remedy that will likely not be forgotten anytime soon.
"Pregnancy related sciatica kicked in today but lucky I had Dr @lisa_wilkinson on hand for a deep tissue massage! Magic hands," wrote Fifi.

Ever the pro, Lisa clearly made a difference, with the mum-to-be then posting a video of Lisa using some elbow grease - quite literally - to help her friend.
"I can't recommend @lisa_wilkinson highly enough for any lower back remedial pain you might have, magic elbows!!" The blonde radio host wrote.
Proud pal Lisa also posted the hilarious pic and mused: "Beautiful @fifi_box is 28 weeks pregnant and and let's just say, she's having issues that only a buttock massage from a trusted girlfriend can solve!"
"So we did this before heading into @theprojecttv studio tonight. And yes, I'm available for hire!"
Fans were quick to respond to Fifi's refreshingly candid video about the perils of pregnancy, providing their own words of advice.
"Buy a spikey plastic ball...you simply place on your buttock or area of pain and lean against a wall and let it roll around," wrote one Instagram user.
Another said there was nothing like having true friends around to support you in the trying times of pregnancy: "There are friends @fifi_box , and then there are friends like @lisa_wilkinson who come complete with a bony elbow when you need it," they wrote.
WATCH: Fifi Box talks about conceiving via IVF. Story continues after video...
Earlier this year, the blonde mum-of-one announced her pregnancy news in an adorable video with daughter Trixie.
Next to the video was a caption explaining that the new addition had been conceived via IVF and an anonymous donor.
Speaking later on The Project about the process, Fifi opened up about the emotional toll it took.
"Nearly three years ago, I made the decision that the right path for me and my little family was to go through IVF with the help of a donor. So I went to the clinic and I think most women in their late 30s would know when you walk in to see an IVF specialist and you're shown the graph, gives you a very rude shock about your chances, from then on it was a case of fingers crossed," she explained.
"You don't share it because you don't know if you're going to have any success. I was given a 7% chance of having a baby! It's still a bit of shock to me, we're just really thrilled," an elated Fifi added.

With her new bub expected to arrive later this year, Fifi and daughter Trixie are sure to be getting very excited, despite the pair still keeping very busy.
Fifi's young 5-year-old just started school earlier this year, while Fifi herself is still hard at work in the radio studio.
Stay tuned for more refreshing pregnancy updates from the admirable television show host!
