The 26 year old announced her pregnancy at the end of April, shortly after splitting from boyfriend Arthur Collins.
But the brunette bombshell has already found herself experiencing some difficult pregnancy symptoms, battling extreme tiredness and nausea.
She continued: “At first I had nausea, morning sickness, and was eating carbs to get rid of that feeling. I just wanted bread, cheese, pizza and biscuits. At around 12 weeks this turned into evening sickness,”

“I was tired, I had to take naps in the day, which is so unlike me. The worst thing were the headaches that were almost like migraines. They would only go if I vomited. Apparently they’re really common,” Ferne added.
“It’s just your body reacting to your hormones running wilds. I also feel like my baby is using my bladder as a squeeze toy. I want to wee all the time!”
Also in the exclusive chat, Ferne admitted she is convinced she is having a baby boy,despite not wanting to find out the sex of her child.
