Catherine Tyldesley reveals pregnancy side effect during third trimester

Second child is due in April... just as well!

Catherine Tyldesley has told Instagram fans she’s experienced pains in her crotch while she’s pregnant.

Ex-Coronation Street star Catherine likened what she felt to being ‘stabbed by knitting needles’.

Catherine, 38, is pregnant with her second child – a little girl – who is expected to arrive in April.

Catherine said: “[I’ve had] insomnia [for] six weeks and every time I get a surge of oestrogen, I get migraines. I lose my vision.

“[But] it’ll be worth it.”

Nothing can be as bad as this.

She went on to reflect: “I think I’ll sleep more when the baby is here. Nothing can be as bad as this. And don’t forget – when they nap you can nap sometimes.”

‘I started to panic’

Catherine, who has six-year-old Alfie with hubby Tom Pitfield, has previously said her sleep was also interrupted during the early stages of her pregnancy.

She said: “I was so hot at night and unable to control my temperature. I started to panic that perhaps I was perimenopausal.”

Diagnosed with hyperemesis gravidarum which made her feel nauseous throughout the day, Catherine noted that Kate Middleton had endured similarly.

‘Nobody warned me’

However, it seems unlikely Catherine will be able to compare the stabbing sensation she recently addressed to any other of Kate’s pregnancy symptoms.

Replying to Catherine’s callout, one follower explained they had been feeling twinges down below.
