Amy Childs feels like a "fat moose."
The former "The Only Way is Essex" star is set to give birth to her first child, whom she"s expecting with her boyfriend Bradley Wright, any day now and has admitted she can"t wait to meet her little one but also so she can start feeling better about herself again.
Writing in her column for new! magazine, she said: "I"ve hit the 39-week mark now and I feel like a fat moose! Everyone keeps telling me my face is swollen - at least they"re speaking the truth. I don"t want people lying, telling me I look beautiful, because I don"t. I feel like I"ve really blown up in my face and feet this week. I"ve also been getting what I think are the first signs of my show - sorry I know it"s a bit bleurgh but I"m sure a lot of girls out there will understand! At first I got really excited and started googling: How long until my baby comes?" but after speaking with my mum, my aunt and my friends, I now know that everyone"s different and she"ll come when she wants to."
However, the 26-year-old reality TV beauty has been trying to remain relaxed and treated herself to a pamper day last week in preparation for her little girl"s arrival.
She explained: "I treated myself to a pamper day last week and got my hair, feet and nails done. Yes, I know I own a salon, but I never have time to have any treatments done as I"m always too busy. Honestly, I felt like a new woman afterwards. I"ve noticed that my hair and nails have been lovely and strong since I"ve been pregnant. I also treated myself to a reflexology session - I"m having one weekly now until she arrives. The therapist picked up that I"ve been getting lots of back pain and tried to relieve it for me. It"s been really bad over the last few weeks and I"m worried I"m having a back to back baby. I really hope not as Mum says the pain is a million times worse."
