Stephanie Davis' 'extreme headaches'

Stephanie Davis has been battling with "extreme headaches."

The 23-year-old actress is currently in the second trimester of her pregnancy and, although the first was full of continuous morning sickness, she's now trying to deal with crippling pain in her head, lack of energy and weird cravings for pickles.

Taking to her Instagram account, the brunette beauty uploaded a photograph of her burgeoning bump accompanied with the caption: "So everyone's saying how amazing I look during pregnancy, some days... Yeah, I feel a million dollars... Other days I feel like ...c**p!

"I've really not been well through most of my pregnancy through stress, low iron and no energy and a lot of it tarnished.

"Today was one of them no energy days, I've been getting extreme headaches, to even get upstairs let alone into the shower and dressed is another story lol.

"My mum has had to help undress me and cook for me and look after me, which I'm very thankful for having her here!!

"Today at 3:30 I've final got showered and into fresh pjs ready for to settle down again, but that's ok, pregnancy is not easy.

"So any pregnant mums feel rubbish or simply have no energy don't beat yourself up over it, you HAVE to listen to your body and if that means eating a jar of pickles in your pjs still at 5pm crying at a puppy advert that's ok. haha! (sic)."

The former 'Hollyoaks' star - who is expected to give birth to a baby boy early next year - hasn't had the easiest pregnancy thus far as she was informed at her three-month scan that she had a 2cm bleed on the top of her uterus.

She said at the time: "I had my three-month scan the other day, which revealed my due date is in January. The baby was kicking its feet around and blowing bubbles ... The baby's heartbeat was nice and strong but the scan did show that I have a 2cm bleed at the top of my womb."

Stephanie believes the bleed - an accumulation of blood between the uterus and the placenta itself - was caused by the stress her ex-boyfriend Jeremy McConnell, who she claims is the father of her baby, has put her under recently.
