PREGNANT Love Island star Malin Andersson is struggling being pregnant and will “be glad” when it’s over.
The reality star, 28, told her Twitter followers she was “not enjoying” her pregnancy and it wasn’t “realistic” that all people are happy when they’re expecting.
“When this pregnancy is over I’ll honestly be glad. Sounds so strange of me to say but I’m not enjoying it,” she wrote on Twitter.
“Some would say you should be happy but that isn’t realistic.”
Her fans rushed to comfort her and share their experiences of tough pregnancies.
“I didn’t enjoy pregnancy! I was poorly and couldn’t keep food down for the whole 9 months. I lived on ice lolly’s and ice cubes. Every woman is different,” wrote one fan.
Another added: “After loss, the joy of pregnancy is taken from you. It’s so sad we don’t get to enjoy it like others but unfortunately you are highly tuned to what can go wrong. This will be your time though, stay in the moment.”
Malin’s admission comes after she was rushed to hospital with bleeding.
Thankfully, Malin revealed both mother and baby are all okay.
She wrote on her Stories: “Sorry haven’t posted all weekend!
“Me and baby are absolutely fine but had a little scare as I was bleeding yesterday and I didn’t have much movement.
“But after being checked out all is okay.”
She added: “I thought to myself. Mope. This is definitely not happening. Not this time.
“Angels have got us for sure. Pregnancy after loss is so difficult. Not gonna lie to you all.”
The star is expecting a baby girl with her friend-turned-boyfriend, Jared.
Her second child’s due date is the same as her late daughter Consy.
Malin’s daughter Consy was born seven weeks premature and passed away in January 2019, one month after her birth.
She was named in tribute to Malin’s late mother, who had passed away in November 2017.
The star opened up recently about her fears her unborn baby will die as she battled “unresolved feelings and pain”.
Sharing a photo of herself cradling her baby bump in a one-piece, Malin penned: “It feels like I’ve been here with you before. I have. I’ll be honest, 3 years ago feels like a blur to me.. But feeling a new human growing inside me again feels so familiar. It scares me.
“So I’m here to welcome you on my journey with my rainbow baby. I know that sharing how I feel resonates.. and I want those that are struggling to conceive, or have lost a baby and are trying, pregnant with their rainbow baby or feel like their happy ending hasn’t come yet – to see a clearer view through my life. And that actually we must trust the timing in everything.
“I haven’t spoken to you much yet on how I’ve felt.. to be honest it’s been a very weird journey so far. I was hesitant to even reveal my pregnancy. I have this inner hurt, this pain & that voice in my head that tells me this isn’t real.. that my child won’t survive – that something bad will happen.
“I’ve been very quiet – Malin quiet? That’s strange – the queen of positive thinking.. waking up each day with not much to say. Just hope in her heart that baby will make it another day..”
The beauty went on: “See the reality is, we never really know what life can throw at us – we must remain present & mindful.. appreciate every minute. For sure I hope for the best, but I can’t help past trauma creep up on me.
“She’s integrated in me. Consy lives through me each day. I see her brown eyes open one last time.. and it gives me fear.. fear of the unknown. So what do I do?
“I’ve been going to therapy; remaining consistent. This has brought up a whole lot of unresolved feelings & pain that I seemed to have blocked out.. don’t get me wrong I have the most amount of love and joy in my heart – but as I said.. I’m only human. We tend to always think the worst.
“When I realise what’s growing inside me, I get goosebumps, I have to have a double take.
“Isn’t it sad that sometimes things seem too good to be true? Well maybe, just maybe they aren’t. I keep telling myself that this is my time.”
