PREGNANT Charlotte Crosby has opened up about her ‘high-risk’ pregnancy for the first time as she gushed over her baby scans.
The Geordie Shore star, who is expecting her first child with boyfriend Jake Ankers, previously suffered an ectopic pregnancy in 2016 when she was in a relationship with Gaz Beadle.
Understandably, the tragedy left her nervous about her current pregnancy, but seeing her baby healthy at her ultrasound scan made her feel elated.
Sharing the pictures on Instagram today, she wrote: “I’m holding up my absolute favourite scan picture! going into my scans was completely new to me, I was so nervous for so many reasons after my EP I’m high risk for complications.
“BUT seeing the baby in the correct place with a healthy beating heart At our first ever scan was nothing short of a miracle to me and my partner.
“I didn’t expect to see much movement at our first ever scan but the baby had other plans it was like a little acrobat in there turning and spinning and rolling around I was in awe! ”
Describing it as the “most magical moment”, she pointed out the baby’s various features in the snap.
And she finished by encouraging her followers to guess the baby’s sex.
Charlotte has been open about her devastating first pregnancy in the past, raising awareness of the condition in the process.
An ectopic pregnancy happens when a fertilised egg implants outside the womb.
Fertilisation, when the sperm meets the egg, happens in a fallopian tube, and usually the egg should travel to the womb where it implants.
In an ectopic pregnancy, the fertilised egg attaches itself somewhere it cannot grow.
The pair went official with their romance in January, and it wasn’t long before she announced their baby news on social media.
