| Updated:

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.”

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!!
