    Ad| Bump & me ready for our weekly swim🤰🏼💦 Now I know LOTS of you asked on my last post whether my @nutribuddyuk is actually pregnancy & diabetes safe & I can confirm with you all that is 🙌🏼 The guys over at Nutribuddy have absolutely reassured me that the product is made using natural wholefoods (oats, flaxseeds, chia seeds, coconut flakes) & doesn't include any added artificial ingredients or vitamin blends 🚫 Although Vitamin A is naturally occurring in some of those ingredients, they are still safe for pregnancy. Sources on gestational diabetes say that wholegrains such as oats are actually a great ingredient to consume & all the products are sugar-free & un-processed. They work with a qualified nutritionist who has ensured me that it is totally fine to consume whilst pregnant. So I hope that helps put any preggo mummies mind at ease, I’m obviously still learning too & always want to make sure what I promote to my followers is authentic & real and honest ❤ Give it a try and save 10% NADIAFEB10 @nutribuddyuk

    She added, ‘Need to meditate. My heart is pounding. This is mental.’

    Earlier this week Nadia proudly showed off her pregnancy body as she headed for her ‘weekly swim’, and she also posted a heartfelt message about the fact she’s doing it alone.

    ‘Us two. A team. A family unit,’ Nadia wrote. ‘A love and bond that nobody can break. So thankful for you already. A true blessing.’

    Fans rushed to send their support to Nadia, and one wrote, ‘A mummy’s love is something else. Totally unbreakable. You are doing amazing. It won’t be long until you have your beautiful little boy in your arms.’

    When she revealed her surprise pregnancy last year, Nadia also confirmed she was no longer in a relationship with the baby’s father. She told Closer, ‘I’ve gone from a hellish year to being blessed with a baby. The odds weren’t in my favour, as for so long I thought I couldn’t have children – so this is the best thing that’s ever happened to me. It’s a miracle!’

    She added, ‘I still think there’s a real stigma against single mums and internet trolls may use that label against me. I adore Ferne McCann. Ferne is a really good example of someone who has never let her status as a single mum hold her back. She owns it and people love her for it.’

    As well as keeping up with her followers on Instagram, Nadia has documented her first pregnancy with podcast The Clueless Mum.
