Here’s a look inside Louise’s pregnancy journey so far…

Baby news

During Louise’s baby announcement, the gorgeous Made In Chelsea star described the first 12 weeks of her pregnancy and also referenced her heartbreaking miscarriage.

She said: “I thought I’d have all sorts of creative ways to deliver this information but the truth is the last 12 weeks have been quite challenging.

“Unlike last time, Ryan and I haven’t documented our journey at all.

“I’ve hardly taken any pictures or videos for fear that something might happen.”

The mum-to-be then admitted: “I’ve also felt like A**. I never knew that fatigue or ‘flatness’ like this existed in pregnancy.

“There are 0 before and after snaps, no week to week transformations or fun reveal videos with friends and family leading a trail of buns to an oven, instead there is a drawer filled with 10000000x billion gazillion pregnancy tests (shameless and expensive) and some sensitive conversations where we try not to get too excited.

“I’d be lying if I said it’s been an easy ride but the truth is I think poor Ryan has found it even harder than I have.”

Louise then took the opportunity to praise her man Ryan as she gushed: “I’m definitely lucky to have such a sensitive partner and I feel safe in the knowledge that you are going to be the best dad in the world.”
