Christina Anstead, who’s expecting her third child (and first with husband Ant Anstead), is admitting that the pregnancy got off to a rocky start.
On Tuesday, the Flip or Flop star shared a new photo on Instagram of her smiling while proudly holding her stomach. However, in the caption she hints that her first trimester was hard on her, just like when she was expecting her daughter, Taylor, and son, Brayden, ages 8 and 3, with ex-husband Tarek El Moussa.
“Now that I can talk about ... The first trimester was brutal!!! Maybe it’s my age (35- considered a geriatric pregnancy ??♀️?) lol... or maybe I just forgot how bad it was with Tay and Bray.. but yikes it really blind sided me,” she writes. “Nausea, exhaustion, too many food aversions, too many carbs.... anyways I’m officially back to feeling somewhat normal. Going to try and enjoy the second trimester while it’s here.”
“Thank you to my amazing husband for being so supportive while his new bride was complaining and a little more cray than usual,” she added with a winking emoji. “We found out we were expecting after the honeymoon and I’m officially 15 weeks now.”
