Kate Ferdinand has candidly opened up on her pregnancy after announcing that she’s expecting her first child with husband Rio, saying she “worries about everything”.
The former TOWIE star, who is a stepmum to Rio’s three children, opened up on feeling “sick and exhausted” during the first few weeks of her pregnancy, causing her to stop working out.
Fitness fanatic Kate, 29, revealed that she’s slowly getting back into training as she shared a snap of her blossoming baby bump while posing in her stunning home gym.

Kate explained to fans: “I’ve been pretty quiet on here recently. Honestly, I’ve just been so exhausted I don’t know wether I’m coming or going how I’ve been feeling has been changing daily so I’ve found it hard to share anything because I don’t really know how I feel myself …. any other pregnant women feeling the same? Or am I losing my mind??
“Anyway, after posting a workout yesterday I’ve had so many questions about working out so thought I would share with you my journey so far.”
She continued: “It’s taken me some time to really get used to the fact that I’m growing a little human in me and to slow down. I’m always running around a hundred miles an hour, trying to do everything and taking it easy is just not in my makeup, it’s taken some adjustments.”

The mum-to-be explained that she trained for the first eight weeks of her pregnancy, but after quickly becoming “exhausted” and struggling “constantly”, she instead decided to take it easy and rest.
“After the 12 week mark I have started to feel gradually better and felt I could get back into doing more bits that I would normally do and back into training slowly, I’ve been doing Pilates & some weight training – my mind feels so much better for it, for me the gym is like therapy it really does help me stay calm and less anxious,” Kate explained.
“Saying all of this, there are still days I feel absolutely wiped out, have terrible migraines & I do just go back to bed. In all honestly those days I feel so useless and have been having terrible guilt that I’m not around for the kids and Rio is doing everything.”

The star finished by revealing that, while herself, Rio and the kids are over the moon by her pregnancy, she can’t help but feel anxious.
“It’s such an amazing feeling having a little human inside of you, our family is so excited but it’s also so scary being pregnant for the first time…,” she wrote.
“I worry about everything having 3 big kiddies to look after and feeling like a ‘mum’ already but actually not being through this experience before has me feeling all types of confused! I just wanted to share the reality of how I’m feeling, also some hope that I’m not alone. lots of love.”
