For some women, pregnancy is a glowing time in their lives – but not Stacey Solomon, who has admitted she hates how it feels to be expecting.
In fact, the Loose Women star, who is currently pregnant with her third child, has said she would be much more likely to consider adopting or fostering if she wanted to expand her family further.

Solomon has two sons, Leighton and Zachary, from previous relationships and is due her third child with actor Joe Swash.
Talking to Hello! magazine, she said: “I don’t love being pregnant but we are so, so happy and so looking forward to what’s to come.
“I have days where I think getting pregnant is the best thing we’ve ever done and then I have moments where I think I’m ruining the lovely dynamic I have with my boys.
Send help! I honestly can’t get back up! Note to self: Laying down on a bean bag close to the ground will result in you being there until a crane is available to hoist you back up off of it. 😂 Finally we are home sweet home after a very long day and I can honestly say I will remain here, probably until I leave for @loosewomen tomorrow morning 😂😂 happy Thursday 💛💜💛

“I don’t know if I could go through pregnancy again. If I could I would have an entire pack of children, and I’d adopt and I’d love to foster, too.
“But right now we’re just happy and feel so, so privileged to be in this position.”
Former X Factor contestant Solomon has been honest about her feelings throughout pregnancy, previously telling The Sun: “My hair has gone grey – honestly, it has! I’ve been horrifically sick and I’m so tired.
“Obviously I’m grateful and I wouldn’t want anyone to think I’m not elated, but I’m not in love with being pregnant.”
The struggle is real today… No one washes on a Saturday do they? Not even going to to peel away the flapping lashes that are barely stuck to my eyes. “Not today” is my motto for now 😂 Hope you’re all having a more productive Saturday 💜

Meanwhile, Swash has admitted that he has his own issues about the pregnancy – he didn’t get to choose what to call the baby.
Staying tight-lipped on what that name is, and whether the baby is a boy or girl, he told The Sun: “We have chosen a name for our baby. It wasn’t my choice. There is no point in fighting it. Don’t stress and you’ll make yourself a lot happier.
“I do like the name. One of her kids chose it. I can’t say more. If I give away what we are having I will have to sleep at my mum’s.”
