Dani Dyer has opened up about her difficult pregnancy journey.

The 24 year old, who recently gave a first glimpse at her baby's nursery, took to her Instagram feed to share a sweet photo of herself and bump as she spoke to her 3.3million followers.

The snap showed the star sitting in a gorgeous lilac co-ord set, highlighting her blossoming baby bump as her long flowing blonde hair cascaded down her shoulders.

In the caption, the former Love Islander said: "Being a first time mum is such an amazing experience but also a worrying one. I find it crazy how I can love something so much that isn’t even here yet and all I want to do is look after it!"

The stunning star went on the explain the various ailments she's suffered throughout her pregnancy as she said: "Social media can paint a picture that being pregnant is so easy but the reality is it can be really tiring and hard sometimes. I've suffered from severe migraines, tiredness and I started going off so many foods when I first fell pregnant.

"When I discovered I had an anterior placenta I worried that I wouldn’t be able to feel my baby move. Because I've never been through this before, I wanted to get advice from other mums who had experienced it.

"This is when I got recommended to join the @peanut app, and it changed everything. Seeing women going through the same worries as me really made me feel more relaxed and understand that it’s normal to feel how I’m feeling.

"The mums on the app gave me loads of tips, like laying on your side to help you feel more so the baby can kick against that rather than where the placenta is. I absolutely love being pregnant but it’s a constant battle of wanting everything to be perfect and for my baby to be healthy."

Dani, who recently revealed she felt her baby move for the first time, worried so much about the health of her unborn child that she confessed she spent much of the first trimester checking in with the doctor.

She said: "A lot of people say the second trimester is the best, and I can agree it’s a lot better than the first as I spent the first 12 weeks always on the phone to my doctor," followed by a laughing emoji.

"I'm always finding new things to worry about, so I'm really relieved to have an app like @peanut where I can go to ask questions and get advice. I can’t imagine what new worries will come my way during the third trimester," with a laughing emoji.

"You really do go through a whirlwind of emotions and the women on the app have helped me learn that it’s okay if I’m having a bad day. We are all going through this crazy experience together and it’s nice to share how we are all feeling the good and the bad. If you’re a mum, pregnant or trying for a baby, I really recommend you join the app."
