“The truth is, I am hugely struggling with my lower back and groin!” she said.
“I’ve always had back problems but this is really taking its toll. Some days it’s manageable and others by the end of the day it’s a struggle to even stand up.”
“Getting my head around losing the ability to move freely is difficult at times, especially with 3 kids and dogs flying around the house!”
Kate went on to say that she felt under pressure to make sure her followers didn’t compare themselves to her more glamorous posts.
She said: “I’m always looking at other pregnant women online and thinking ‘god I don’t look like her.'”

The star said she wanted to make sure she was showcasing the realities that she was facing behind closed doors to make sure other women knew what pregnancy was really like.
Kate continued: “I really don’t want anyone to feel like that looking at my posts. Sometimes social media can really make the glamorous moments outweigh the norm.
“The reality is we always share our best moments on social media.
“But it’s important to share the not so great ones too so we can learn from one another. ”
