Louisa Lytton details tough first trimester

Pregnant Louisa Lytton has detailed her tough start to pregnancy. 

In an Instagram post shared on Thursday, the EastEnders star, 32, divulged details of her insatiable appetite during her first trimester, as she said she had ‘never felt hunger like it’ and  lamented ‘giving her baby a terrible start’.

Alongside a montage of images of her fast food, the actress, who is expecting her first child with her fiancé Ben Bhanvra, penned the lengthy caption which explained the extent of her cravings and her emotional experiences. 

She wrote: ‘Now I know I’m lucky I could stomach food, I know some people can’t? I felt such guilt, how could I give this baby such a terrible start. I’m out the other side now, and I wish I just relaxed a bit more and didn’t cry into every portion of chips.’

Baby on board! Pregnant Louisa Lytton has detailed her tough start to pregnancy

Last week, Louisa and Ben revealed they are expecting their first child, as she took to Instagram on Mother’s Day to make the announcement with a sweet video.

Scored with Stevie Wonder’s classic track As, the screen star’s fun-filled footage showed the card she’d sent to her own mother, which read: ‘Just a little note to say, there’s a baby on the way’, as well as flashing her burgeoning bump. 

In her latest post, Louisa shared a video from 1961 film One Hundred and One Dalmatians, in which the character Rolly is lying on the floor saying: ‘I’m hungry, Mother. I’m hungry’, to which Perdita says: ‘Now Rolly, you’ve just had your dinner.’

It seems the actress was alluding to the fact she felt the same as the pup, who responded: ‘But I am, just the same. I’m so hungry I could eat a a whole elephant.’

In her accompanying caption, she penned: ‘First trimester. I’ve never felt hunger like it. I think every 5-10 minutes in fact on average I think I ate 56 Mc Ds and 74 pizzas a week. I couldn’t stop. Poor Ben would make a whole roast dinner on a Sunday…

‘Then I’d be queuing at a drive thru 30 minutes later. And CHEESE, I carried cathedral cheese bites around in my pocket at work to eat behind a set wall when no one was watching. The only way to describe it was a 24/7 7 day a week hangover…

‘The only thing that would subside the sickness was salt and ketchup. Now I know I’m lucky I could stomach food, I know some people simply can’t?…

‘I felt such guilt, how could I give this baby such a terrible start. I’m out the other side now, and I wish I just relaxed a bit more and didn’t cry into every portion of chips…

She also added her geotag as ‘Eating Dominos Pizza’. 

Last month, Louisa admitted she felt ‘so anxious’ about collecting her wedding dress, because she doesn’t know if her nuptials will go ahead this year due to COVID-19 pandemic restrictions.

The  actress revealed in January she and her fiancé Ben have booked their big day for July, but will cancel their wedding if their guests cannot attend. 

Taking to Instagram recently, Louisa revealed she has left her gown still in the shop due to the uncertainty if she can marry this year.

Louisa shared a picture of her trying on a bridal dress as she wrote on Instagram: ‘Going to try on wedding dresses feels like a lifetime ago. My mum came to every appointment. 

‘I loved every dress. She chose the winner. (This ISN’T it) My dress is still in the shop as I feel so anxious about collecting it? 

‘Not knowing if I’ll even be wearing it this year? Brides . . How are you feeling? Are you still counting on 2021 for your big day or are 2022 new dates being discussed? (sic)’.

The actress – who plays Ruby Allen on the BBC soap – recently admitted she and Ben will postpone their nuptials if they cannot have ‘the exact wedding’ they want.
