Pippa O’Connor gets honest about baby scan nerves

“Up to ninety about it.”

Pippa O’Connor has opened up about her latest baby scan in the most honest way. The soon-to-be mum-of-three revealed that she had a scan on Monday and everything is looking good for the expectant mother.

She got honest about her nerves on Instagram, “The days leading up to one, I’m just up to ninety about it.”

“The relief after that, as I’m sure so many of you can relate to, is huge when you get a positive scan and everything looks good,” she continued.

The 36-year-old explained that you feel like you’re holding your breath on the days leading up to your scan. 

Pippa revealed that her baby is well and healthy, much to the mum’s relief. She said the scan was “a lovely reassurance” after days of feeling nervous.

The TV personality said that she doesn’t think those nerves will ever go away until she is holding her third child. 

“I don’t know if that feeling will ever go away until the baby is in your arms,” she shared.

Pippa and her husband Brian Ormand revealed that they were expecting their third child in May. She shared the news by posting a black and white snap of her holding her baby bump on Instagram.

“I’m feeling beyond grateful and happy to be sharing our special news. We are all so excited to welcome baby Ormond to our family this Autumn.”

The couple, who marked 10 years of marriage this summer, are also parents to 8-year-old Ollie and 5-year-old Louis.
