Georgia also hinted that fans will get to learn the gender of their unborn baby soon as they’re considering different ways to announce the exciting news, before revealing she has no plans to give birth at home.

Asked how she handled the first trimester, Georgia said: ‘The first 12 weeks I felt hungover every day and then on the 13th week I was fine.’
The star admitted she has no plans to give birth at home despite the current pandemic, adding: ‘I’m definitely not considering it no, the only thing I like about it is that you can have more than one person in the room with you, but for me I’d rather be safe in a hospital.’
Georgia said she and Tommy already know the gender of their baby, but are waiting for the right time to share the news with fans.

The reality star took to Instagram to reflect on the unexpected news she and boyfriend Tommy received, as she said she will now have to have diabetic tests.
Speaking candidly about her hospital visit, Georgia told fans: ‘It was good but I did have a panic when they said to me the baby’s belly was slightly bigger than normal so now I have to go for a diabetic blood test.
‘I don’t think I have it but they said just to make sure, any midwives out there watching can you please DM me because I don’t really know much about it.
‘But, yea, everything else is fine, the baby is healthy. I just think I have got a big baby, I was quite big and I think Tommy was too. You know when you hear something and you’re like what and it freaked me out.’

Detailing her emotions, Georgia went on: ‘I literally cried because I panicked because I didn’t know what it meant, you know when you just get overwhelmed and you’re like what does that mean?
‘It’s just scary being a first time mum, you literally don’t know anything, or I don’t anyway. Any little thing I’m like “what does that mean? Is it what I’m eating? Have I caused this?”
‘But they reassured me that its not what I caused, it can just happen in pregnancies, its quite common. And then I’ve researched it and placenta causes it, so that makes me feel better I don’t think it’s about me.
‘So, yea, any little tips would be great, any reassurance of what I’m doing. I thought it would be good to share it step by step, and then I can get tips, and if anyone else had the same emotions today as me it’s normal.’
