I didn’t think I would b working out again for a couple of months but I feel able to and it may give this little man a nudge!

Fans have been quick to comment on Lucy's post, with most praising her for her efforts.

One wrote: "Amazing girl. I did this up until 41 weeks and was induced at 42. Felt amazing to be so active till the end.

"Take care of yourself the other side - this is where I felt most fragile xx."

Another added: "Love this 💙good luck xxx."

A third wrote: "I did this too at 40 weeks with my first baby. My mum thought I was bonkers but it felt so good! 💕."

Last week, Lucy admitted to fans that she was feeling fed up as she hit the 40 weeks' pregnant mark.

The reality star also confessed that she has found the final stage of pregnancy the hardest, both "mentally and physically".

In another post on social media, she told her followers: "I found the 1st trimester very challenging due to sickness & fatigue, but I can honestly say 38-40weeks has been a lot tougher mentally & physically! It’s this weird limbo stage.

"I’ve worked through the list of eating dates, pineapple, walking, sweeps, spicy food, raspberry leaf tea, clary sage oil baths, birthing ball.

"But we know what I mean!!! I give up and I’m just going to relax and let nature take its course as it’s so disheartening when nothing happens!! #40weekspregnant."
