Expected: Jess said she’s ‘frightened, excited, grateful, vulnerable and frankly totally and utterly overwhelmed’ as she wrote from her honeymoon hotel in Dubai
Jess wrote: ‘Pregnancy – It sure is a rollercoaster and that’s the best way to describe it! I’m scared, excited, grateful, vulnerable and frankly totally and utterly overwhelmed not even knowing what to expect!
“I promise to share this journey, but the good and the bad as much as I can, and I’d love to hear from you girls too, because in the end it can feel like we often do it alone, the way I think we are, but we at least also have each other to confide in and share common feelings and experiences!
“I also wanted to acknowledge the following, since the announcement that we are expecting our baby. My heart goes out to everyone for whom this was a trigger. In recent years, my world has been opened to the realm of fertility and all the struggles that can come with it.

“Whether it’s close friends or friends of friends, etc., I’ve seen the struggles to conceive, the sad loss of babies, and a whole world that as a woman you consume every day. l
‘ am eternally grateful, as I have already said for this blessing, and I want to make it clear that we do not take it for granted and also send immense love to all the ladies and men who have not had an easy ride, as I know you with so many to be.’
She added: ‘I still spend every day hoping this baby is okay and we’ll be okay and even then my baby is healthy and living a full life, I promise it never ends. And behind the beautiful glowing Instagram posts are also a lot of emotions, hormones & worries that you don’t see. Not to mention my random mood swings where I feel great one minute and then others I’m sure if someone (usually will) breathe a certain way, I could turn into a crazy possessed woman.
“Anyway, here’s a picture of me in one of my good moods despite the expression and enjoying every second of this holiday ☺️♥️ sending lots of love this Saturday morning x x.”

She also started sweating at night, which made her panic about her future plans for children.
Jess told Grazia, “There are so many girls in my position.
“But it wasn’t until I saw that article that I became aware that if your mother is going through early menopause, you may be going through it five years earlier than your mother and grandmother.”
She added: ‘I’m not in menopause now, but I was sweating so much at night.
The television personality’s comments come after she said last week that she felt “so much elation, so much happiness” on her wedding day in Mallorca.
The lavish event included 12 bridesmaids, a church ceremony and a banquet in a castle.
Jess told Hello! magazine: ‘I felt so much elation, so much happiness that I couldn’t stop smiling.’
Thinking back to the moment he saw the bride, new husband William said, “She looked so beautiful. The dress was incredible, even more spectacular than I thought it would be.
“The whole church gasped. It was one of those unforgettable moments.’
The bride entered the Basilica de Sant Francesc in Palma on Des’ree’s I’m Kissing You from Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo and Juliet.
Jess recalled, “If I heard it in that beautiful church with my father by my side, and to see Will at the end of the aisle, I’d relive that many more times if I could.”
