Gemma Atkinson: ‘It floored me’ Pregnant star reveals A&E dash amid health issues | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV


Gemma Atkinson, 34, told her one million Instagram followers she has had a few health problems along her pregnancy journey.

The former Strictly Come Dancing star uploaded a picture of a baby meme with the words “Are you serious?” to divulge all on her health.

Gemma revealed she has so far had four kidney infections, having been diganosed with the illness again this morning. 

She began her lengthy update: “Today’s post is the glamorous subject of Kidney infections! Yes, I’m going there. I’ve had 3 so far during pregnancy and this morning I was diagnosed with my 4th.”

“The first two I knew nothing about, the third one floored me and I actually ended up in A&E with it back in early April.

“Apparently some woman are just prone to them (I’m clearly not a doctor but I was told it’s because our uterus is so close to the bladder.”

She went on: “It apparently sits directly on top of it and the increased weight can block the drainage of urine causing an infection) The joys!

“During mine & Gorks cinema trip I started with back ache but Avengers was a long ass movie so I thought maybe that’s why. Alas though last night came the fever, aches, cold sweats and nausea.

“In fact I pretty much looked like the exorcist At first I felt a tad embarrassed going to the Docs with just ‘back ache and sickness’ but thank God I did.”

Gemma continued: “I recognised my symptoms from last time, caught it quickly and its currently being treated.

“There’s lots of changes happening in our bodies when pregnant and it’s always better to have a check up, for peace of mind if nothing else.

“The NHS have been wonderful in looking after me but in the nicest way possible I don’t want to see any of them again until I’m due to deliver.”
