Cradling her pregnancy curves in black leggings and a matching crop top, Georgia wrote: ‘I’m nearly 24 weeks now and everything is new to me.. I sometimes freak out about the smallest things.
‘One thing that I’ve been so conscious of is getting extra stretch marks (I have always had them inside my legs but I’m used to them).
‘I know it’s bound to happen as I get bigger and is a natural part of pregnancy but I’ve made a point of using @biooiluk since day one and it’s worked wonders but I totally forgot to use it under my boobs, I didn’t even think to oil them up and today I’ve discovered there’s loads there!

Candid: Last week, Georgia revealed she felt ‘constantly hungover’ during her first trimester
‘I know I’m growing a human and I’m so happy & proud of my body but I like to be honest & I like to tell you when I have a moment of ahhhh .. it’s a lot of change and I’m still getting used to it! Can anyone relate? What’s the best thing you’ve used for your stretch marks? (this isn’t a paid ad).’
Last week, Georgia revealed she felt ‘constantly hungover’ during her first trimester.
The TOWIE star said she struggled with the sickness and nausea that typically comes in the first 12 weeks during an Instagram Q and A.
Georgia also hinted that fans will get to learn their baby’s gender soon as they’re considering different ways to announce the exciting news, but went onto admit that she’s hardly left her house in recent weeks due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
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 added she due to the rise in COVID-19 cases she’s barely left her house, saying: ‘I’m trying to get places for online food shops, it’s just a scary time.’
Georgia 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.
She said: ‘Yeah we are, but we just don’t know when we’re going to. We just was like ”let’s keep it to ourselves for a bit” but we need to tell you really?
‘I’ve always had a boy and a girl name so yeah, so hopefully I don’t get bored of it.’
The couple announced they were expecting their first baby together in December, and told their co-stars in emotional scenes aired in the festive special
