In the caption of her new post, Louise says she and Ryan decided not to document the first few weeks of her pregnancy. Now that she has reached the 12-week mark, she wants "to try to relax a smidge and to be able to enjoy the journey as I'm informed it will be over in a flash."She said: "Unlike last time, Ryan and I haven't documented our journey at all. I've hardly taken any pictures or videos for fear that something might happen.

"I'd be lying if I said it's been an easy ride but the truth is I think poor Ryan has found it even harder than I have."

Louise also acknowledged Ryan's support during their pregnancy journey. She said: "I'm definitely lucky to have such a sensitive partner and I feel safe in the knowledge that you are going to be the best dad in the world."

"I want to try to relax a smidge and to be able to enjoy the journey as I'm informed it will be over in a flash.

"The truth is I might have waited a little longer to share but I don't think I could have hidden the news for much longer because there is absolutely ZERO room left in this 5ft short torso for a growing bump except to push MASSIVELY outwards which means it's becoming very hard to hide... I've already received a few comments.

"I already resemble a wide load vehicle (Ryan's words not mine and incidentally exactly the kind of humour I need to get me through the next 6 months).

"Now that it's out in the open I'd love to be able to ask for your advice when I need it as there are so many things happening to my body that NO ONE TALKS ABOUT.

Louise also informed her fans about dealing with ulcerative colitis during pregnancy. "Hormones are a thing of absolute madness and pregnancy coupled with ulcerative colitis has been a major killjoy and particularly anxiety inducing.
