Millie Mackintosh’s shock as she thought her waters broke but it was ‘leaky bladder’ as she details third trimester symptoms

Pregnant Millie Mackintosh is excitedly awaiting the birth of her baby girl with husband Hugo Taylor, but has honestly opened up about how she is feeling in her third trimester.

The Made in Chelsea star, 30, shared a picture of herself lying down in bed on Instagram, as she shows off her gorgeous bump in a grey crop top and leggings.

In her caption, Millie opened up on her physical and emotional challenges as she nears her due date.

She wrote: “As I come close to the end of my pregnancy, (it feels like I’ve been pregnant forever) I’m aware I've been posting lots of smiling bump photos but I wanted to be honest about my experience in recent weeks.

“Don’t get me wrong, there’s a lot of beauty surrounding growing a human, it feels like a miracle. A miracle that comes with a side portion of crazy old symptoms, soaring hormone levels and physical and emotional challenges.

“The baby is currently on my bladder making me feel like I need to pee all the time, and don’t get me started on the 4-5 visits to the loo throughout the night!

“A memorable moment would be an evening a few weeks ago when I thought my waters had broken, but much to Hugo's relief It was just my weakened leaky bladder! Oh the joys!!!

“My least favourite third trimester symptom has been Carpel Tunnel Syndrome, which causes tingling, pain and swelling in my hands and wrists, which delightfully worsens at night. Who needs sleep hey? At least my hands and feet are in sync, water retention has re-enforced my love for a good slider… nothing else fits on my feet!

“Relaxing on the sofa means Hugo can’t go far (luckily he’s on lockdown with me) as he needs to manually hoist me up like a human forklift, which he does every night with the sound effects.

“I’ve got out of control cravings for sugary cereal and can’t get enough crushed ice with fizzy water and fruit juice, which doesn't bode well with the baby currently using my bladder as a trampoline.

“Time at home has been such a blessing in all this, I schedule in afternoon naps, gentle exercise, meditation, cooking and reading, and every time that I’m greeted with an uncomfortable symptom, I’m also met with a wave of excitement to meet our baby girl. Has anyone else had similar experiences in their final weeks of pregnancy? #thirdtrimesterrealness #wegotthis.”

Many of Millie’s followers commented with messages of support, as well as to relate to what she is going through.

One person wrote: “Omg, my third trimester craving was crushed ice and sparkling water, separately though, could not get enough, the fizz of the sparkling water was like a drug.”

Another said: “I’m so glad youve written this!!! – I am due exactly the same day as you, with my first baby & have experienced all of the above! You’re doing so well, we’re nearly there. I feel so swollen & sore as well, but the hands part is so uncomfortable. We’ve also got the added stress of whats going on around us. You’re not alone!! Take care, our little girls will be here soon.” [sic]

A third person wrote: “Sounds familiar, worst for me was restless legs! But all becomes a distant memory when you get to meet your baby.”
