PREGNANT Lauren Goodger has opened up about struggling to sleep ahead of the birth as she filmed her blossoming belly.
The 34-year-old, who is expected to welcome a baby girl in July, told fans that her "beautiful bump" had been getting in the way at night.
Former TOWIE star Lauren, who is expecting her first baby with boyfriend Charles Drury, filmed as she lay in bed for a "cosy" weekend.
"I didn't sleep well last night because of my beautiful bump," she captioned the video while pouting for the camera and videoing from different angles.
"Nothing better than the sound of rain and a cosy bed. Saturday snugs."
Former The Only Way Is Essex star Lauren has been taking to social media for advice after reaching a milestone 20 weeks of pregnancy.
She recently asked fans for advice, admitting she was considering having a water birth as she neared her due date.
The mum-to-be wrote: "Been thinking about a water birth, has anyone had one? DM me would love to chat about how you found it."
She previously told fans she was planning on having a "natural birth" while answering baby related questions.
"I want a completely natural birth," she explained. I don't want any epidural or anything. I literally just want gas and air. The old fashion way. So yeah, wish me luck."
She wrote to her fans of the 20 week milestone: "So happy to see our baby at the scan all healthy and growing strong! Five months pregnant today!"
It comes after she showed off her blossoming bump while out on a walk in Essex, wearing a figure-hugging blue dress.
Lauren previously told The Sun how the early months of pregnancy had taken their toll.
She said: “Some days it’s like having a hangover. Even though I’m pregnant and I don’t go out, I don’t drink, I still get that feeling. I thought when I got pregnant that would all be over. It’s not fair.
“But obviously it’s such a beautiful thing and I have this lovely buzz at the same time.”
Lauren added that the response to the couple’s baby news has been “overwhelming”, and said she has been flooded with messages from well-wishers.
Even so, sick social media trolls were quick to leap on her happy news and accuse her of faking her pregnancy.
She said: “People have even accused me of having a fake bump. It’s totally crazy."
In January 2021, Lauren told how she was three months pregnant, with the reality star due to give birth to a baby girl in July 2021.
She admitted that her 23-year-old toyboy Charles Drury didn't believe her when she first told him she'd had a positive pregnancy test.
In 2017, the Celebs Go Dating star bravely opened up about her and her former boyfriend Jake McLean's heartbreaking 2013 miscarriage while she was competing on Dancing On Ice.
Earlier this month, the expectant mum suffered a scare when she believed her unborn baby had stopped moving.
