Lucy Mecklenburgh is due to give birth to her first child in just a few weeks, and today she gave her fans a glimpse into the life of a heavily pregnant mum-to-be.
The former TOWIE star, 28, and her partner, former Corrie actor Ryan Thomas, 35, are expecting a baby boy in March.
And judging by the two Instagram posts Lucy shared this morning, she was awake VERY early going over some last-minute preparations in her head.
The first post that she shared with her 1.6 million followers simply said: “0457… Yep my usual time for cereal.”
Being heavily pregnant can’t be very comfortable – so it’s no wonder that mums-to-be don’t get much sleep.
Everything I’m yet to get for the baby… Things missing in my hospital bag… Jobs that need doing around the house… Questions I have for my midwife…
But Lucy then suggested that there was another reason for her insomnia – she has a lot going through her mind.
Less than half an hour after, she posted another message saying: “And lists for my lists!!
“Everything I’m yet to get for the baby… Things missing in my hospital bag… Jobs that need doing around the house… Questions I have for my midwife…”
Lucy delighted her fans yesterday when she uploaded a very clear 4D scan of her baby to Instagram.
The adorable black-and-white picture was captioned: “Peekaboo! Can’t stop looking at this. See u soon little man!!! @ryanthomas84 #35weekspregnant.”
One follower cooed: “What a little cutie.”
And another wrote: “Aww gorgeous face.”
This will be Lucy and Ryan’s first child together. Ryan already has an 11-year-old daughter, Scarlett, from his previous relationship with former Corrie co-star Tina O’Brien.
Lucy and Ryan got engaged in June last year during a break in Italy.
Two months later, the former TOWIE star shared the news that the couple were expecting a baby.
