Lucy Mecklenburgh admits her pregnancy has been ‘brutal’ so far

The 28-year-old is expecting her first child with Ryan Thomas


Lucy Mecklenburgh has revealed her pregnancy journey has been “brutal” so far.

The former TOWIE star, who is three months pregnant, has admitted that her first trimester hasn’t been the easiest experience.

Posting a photo of her growing baby bump on Instagram, Lucy started her post by writing: “Although trying to keep this under wraps especially whilst on holiday really wasn’t easy ???? I’m now over 12 weeks and I’m starting to fall in love with & embrace my new, ever changing… ever expanding body…”

“I’m in awe of what my body is doing, creating another human! Yes 1 human I was worried with how big I got very quickly it was twins haha! ????.”

“For the first time I feel content in myself and how I view my body. It feels like as soon as I became pregnant my priorities changed and I must admit this is definitely for the better,” Lucy continued.

“My journey hasn’t been plain sailing the 1st 3 months have been pretty brutal and quite lonely as you can’t really talk about it & feel like your lying to everyone constantly.”

“So now I’ve had a little more down time (mainly with my head down a toilet!????????) I’ve been writing a blog about my pregnancy journey so far and there’s no filter!”

“I wanted to share my highs & LOWS!! I’m just finishing it and I’ll share the first instalment with you guys soon.”

The 28-year-old is expecting her first baby with Coronation Street star Ryan Thomas, and the pair announced the news over the weekend. 

The news comes two months after Ryan proposed to Lucy during a romantic trip to Italy.
