To be honest, I haven’t been very good at all this week. I’ve been feeling really poorly and I’ve had to go to the doctors twice because I don’t know what’s wrong with me.
I went for a meeting in London on Monday and on the way back on the train I just went really weird, I literally felt like I could pass out. I want straight to bed when I got in but my fiancé Michael O'Neill was worried and told me to go to the doctors because I wasn’t myself at all. I had a water test done and bloods done and I get the results on Monday.
I know doctors tell you not to Google stuff but I did and I read about diabetes and how it can make you go into early labour and I was like, ‘oh my god’ it just makes you panic, I was quite frightened. Obviously when I had Harry he came early and there was no real explanation as to why, so me Googling things made me think it was going to happen again and I started panicking.

Every time I go anywhere now and I start getting pains I just want to get home and go to bed as quickly as possible, better safe than sorry.
I'll find out Monday what’s wrong when I get my blood results back, because they can look back over the last few months to see what’s been going on, it might be low iron or it still could be diabetes even though they didn’t pick that up in the urine samples.

I just want to find out what’s wrong, because I keep getting these migraines and they’re horrible, I feel like a zombie, almost like I’m not on this planet. Michael can be clicking his fingers in front of my face and I’m just not with it, I almost feel like i’ve got a hangover, it’s really horrible, so I’ve just been trying to rest.
The boys have been crazy this morning, they’ve been making me laugh and cheering me up. There’s a video at the top of this blog of George with a teddy that plays trickling water and music at the same time, he put on my tummy this morning for the baby to listen and the baby started kicking me, he must have been able to hear it so I told him when the baby comes he'll have to give him the teddy.
George has been really really clingy with me, he’s usually clingy with Michael, not me! If I leave the house he cries, if I eat breakfast he’s got to be sitting next to me and he’s been holding on to my leg. I think he knows I’m having a baby, I keep saying to him that he’s a big boy now and there’s a baby on the way but he keeps telling me that he’s the baby
I keep reminding him that he’s going to big school in September, but with kids that age you don’t really know what's going on because they don’t tell you, but you just know by their actions that something is up.
I’ve been scheduling lots of work for after the baby, I’ve got some really exciting stuff coming up in the new year. I’m starting to write my autobiography, it’s something I can do at home and although it’s going to be mentally draining, it won't be physically, and I'm really looking forward to that.
I’ve had loads of experiences in my life that people can relate to, which should be good. I think it will help me relax, I think any sort of therapy like that and talking about what’s happened really does help you. At the time it does drain every last bit of energy, but in the long run it helps to get it out.
Things I’ve been through, lots of young girls have been through, so it’s nice for them to be able to relate to me and say 'well she got through it'.
Michael's on Instagram
Michael got Instagram this week and he’s literally obsessed now, I’m losing him to Instagram! He’ll probably get bored of it in a few weeks but because it’s a new thing to him he think it’s fun.
He posted that he bought the baby new Yeezy trainers, he ordered them the minute they came out, they’re so so cute. I don’t think they’re going to fit him right away, maybe when he’s about six months.
He has spent a fortune so far, he’s got Gucci, he’s got Burberry, everything is named and I keep trying to get him to understand the baby will grow out of them quickly. I think because it’s his first he’s just really excited, the kid's got a better wardrobe than me and he’s not even here yet!
He’s thinking of my boys too though, because he buys a Hugo Boss top for the baby and then tries to find a similar style for the boys. He’s thinking about them as well so it’s really nice.

Mental Health Week
I think it’s so important to talk about mental health because I’ve been in some really really dark places and post natal depression was really bad for me. I didn’t really understand that I had it and there’s a stigma behind it that people should be ashamed of going to the doctors or getting help.
I’ve been on medication before and it really helped me and levelled me out. I don’t have to take it anymore but if it ever happened again or happened after this baby I’d have no problem going back.
Nobody likes to feel down when they’ve got a new baby and I’m going to have four kids, I really don’t want depression to get hold of me because it wouldn’t be good for them either.

After the baby
I've decided to have Cryoliposculpting at New Face and Body Solutions on Brompton Road after I've had the baby, it uses a fat freezing machine but it's different to others as it doesn't come back.
It increases elasticity so for people who've been pregnant it's ideal. I’m so thrilled I’ve found out about it, I've never heard of it before, I'm going to get on it as soon as I’ve had the baby in time for my holiday with the boys.
I'm having my 4D scan next week so I'll have scan pictures to share with you,
All my love,
Danielle and bump xXx
