Often vomiting on the drive to work, Tracey has been forced to wear seabands, a type of drug free relief from nausea.
‘This pregnancy at 37 is certainly different to my first at 26!’ Tracey.
‘Morning sickness has been all day sickness that kicked in from week six and into the second trimester (and still going!) and it’s been a rollercoaster ride.’

Tracey’s morning sickness has been so bad she’s been bed-ridden or on the couch most of the time.
‘My everyday symptoms are vomiting, nausea, loss of appetite, fatigue, anxiety, low energy and the list goes on,’ she explained.
‘I feel so blessed to be pregnant but at the same time I’ve been feeling anxious and alone.
‘I know many of us go through similar symptoms but seeing how glorified pregnancy can be on Instagram it has left me wondering am I the only person struggling?’
She finished with a sweet note to fans, saying: ‘If you’re struggling, just know you are not alone xx.’
