Jessie J revealed just weeks ago that she is pregnant with her first child and has since documented those first few weeks in an Instagram video – but be warned it features a lot of vomiting
But it should come as no shock to anyone that the first trimester of pregnancy is tough to handle; the morning sickness, the cramps, the bloating, it is all there to test our resolve.
And it is so refreshing to have such a high-profile singer detail what it is really like.
The Price Tag star said in a recently shared post that while performing in Brazil she was already pregnant but no one knew. Just before she went on stage her adrenalin and excitement went to 1000.
She said: “I felt like I was outside of my body the whole time. I had to keep saying to myself, ‘you are ok, you are ok’.
“No one knew and I came off stage feeling like I had performed the show 100 times faster than I should of. Like I sang like Theodor from the chipmunks sped up. I came off and just sobbed. Woooo the emotions/hormones were high.
“I am watching this back and fast forward to now, laying here at 3 am feeling my baby kick inside me.”
She told her 12 million Instagram followers the news and asked them to be ‘gentle’ and that she felt ‘excited and terrified’.
In a humorous comment, she said: “Honestly, ya girl just wants to ugly cry in public in a cat suit eating a chocolate covered pickle with no questions asked.”
Her post was liked by several famous faces, including Stacey Solomon, Paloma Faith and Ruby Rose.
Jessie has been open about her past fertility struggles and her desire to be a mother.
