Maria Fowler's painful pregnancy

Maria Fowler is in "so much pain" with her pregnancy.

The former 'The Only Way is Essex' star is just days away from her due date and has admitted she's terrified she may have to have an emergency Caesarean section because her baby could possibly still be in the head-up breech position.

Taking to her Twitter account, she wrote: "So yesterday I was in so much pain think baby was turning, but now I can't figure out if she's still breech or not... just want a normal birth (sic)"

The 29-year-old beauty announced she and her boyfriend Kelvin Batey, who have been wrapped up in a whirlwind romance, are expecting a little girl together at the end of April.

She wrote on her social networking sites at the time: "So excited to let you all know me and @KelvinBatey555 are expecting a baby girl. The preparation has begun (sic)."

The couple - who have been dating since last August - confirmed they are expecting their first child in March.

Maria tweeted at the time: "As its Mother's Day, @KelvinBatey555 and I are pleased to announce a new addition is on its way later this year (sic)."

The model previously dated her 'TOWIE' co-star Mick Norcross and Oldham Athletic footballer Lee Croft.
