Pregnancy news, 18/09/2017
It’s been a couple of months since Jennifer Metcalfe gave birth to her son Daye, and it sounds like the pregnancy was a challenging one.
In an interview with Femail, Jennifer compared pregnancy to having a hangover, but without the night out that usually comes before it. Unlucky for Jennifer, it sounds like she had every pregnancy symptom going. Constipation, nausea, sickness from start to end, tiredness – you name a common pregnancy complaint, she had it.
'I just felt pants every day. I just felt like I had a nine month hangover without the fun in-between obviously. Every day I just felt a bit sick.’
