Pregnant Dani Dyer is warning her fans away from buying at-home baby heartbeat monitors after one gave her a nasty scare.
The Love Island star, who is expecting her first child with boyfriend Sammy Kimmence, says she was left feeling “anxious and stressed” after using the device and failing to find her baby’s heartbeat.
The 24-year-old took to her Instagram story to show off some of the baby goods she’s been picking up when she issued the warning to her followers.
She said: “Listen, nothing against it, some people are really lucky and can find heartbeats at like six weeks.
“I tried this at home, it made me ill. Like if you’re a bit of a worrier like me, I just really don’t recommend them because if you can’t find the heartbeat you’re stressing about it, I know I was.
“So please, please, save your money and don’t order one of these because it really stressed me out.”
She captioned her videos: “Some people are really lucky finding the baby’s heartbeat! But if you are a worrier like me and it’s gonna make you more anxious I don’t recommend ordering one.
“Some people can really find the heartbeat! But it stressed me out when I couldn’t find the heartbeat and was on the phone booking a scan so yeah just a little heads up”
Dani is 15 weeks pregnant with her first child, and she can’t wait to be a mum.
Dani and Sammy announced their happy news last month, posing for a loved-up snap on the sofa while Dani held up a picture of their scan.
She wrote: “Little bubba can’t believe you are going to be ours. Me and Sammy are so excited to start this next chapter in our lives, feel so lucky and grateful..2021”
Dani has been documenting her pregnancy along the way, and recently spoke about the changes she’s seeing in her body.
Sharing a bikini snap as she entered her 14th week of pregnancy, Dani unveiled her blossoming bump.
She penned: “I’ve really started noticing the changes in my body and I’m definitely embracing it.
“Apparently at this stage I’m supposed to feel ‘on top of the world’ which I really hope for as the first few months have been really hard
“I’ve had loads of messages from people so thought I’d share my experience so far. And honestly your responses and little tips have been amazing I really feel like it is like a little community on here and I love it lol.
“I’ve been lucky with not being physically sick. But I’ve definately suffered with the nausea, always being tired but waking up at stupid times and horrendous migraines (I will definitely be trying out all the new things people have recommended me so Thankyou)
“I’ve had to say goodbye to salads and hello to anything that can go inside of a sandwich or a roll because for some reason a plain salad makes me GAG! All I want is carbs carbs carbs.”
She added: “At first I felt terrible I didn’t want to exercise or do anything I just wanted to lay on the sofa and sleep. But there is NOTHING wrong with that, I think I’ve learnt everyday I will feel different! Some days I’ll have energy some days I won’t even want to get out of my pyjamas and that’s totally ok.
“There’s always a lot of pressure on how you should feel but we are all different. I actually want to shout out to the women that write on netmums because they have got me through the worrying
“I’ve honestly never ever been a hypochondriac until now. I have drove myself mad with worry over every single niggle or pain or if I have had a headache that lasted more than a day I have been on the phone to 111. But I am calming down now, you can’t help but worry the first few months as it really is the hardest because you want it all to be positive and ok.
