Audrina Patridge: Pregnancy makes me feel like a woman
Audrina Patridge’s pregnancy has made her "feel like a woman".
The former ‘Hills’ star is expecting her first child with fiance Corey Bohan and is mostly "feeling good" and enjoying seeing her figure change.
She said: "There were three or four days during my first trimester when I could not get out of bed and all I wanted to do was sleep.
"But overall, I’m feeling good!
"Watching my body transform has been amazing. I feel like a woman now."
The 31-year-old beauty admitted planning her wedding while pregnant is "overwhelming" and she won’t be looking for her bridal gown for some time as she has "no idea" how pregnancy will affect her figure in the long-term.
She told Fit Pregnancy and Baby magazine: "It’s a little overwhelming.
"After I have the baby, I have no idea what size my breasts will be or if my hips will go down or get bigger. So for now dress shopping, at least, is on hold."
But the couple – who have been together for seven years aren’t worried about leaving some time before tying the knot because they already feel married.
Audrina said: "I didn’t want to rush getting married because stress is bad for the baby.
"Corey said, ‘Stop caring what people think. Their opinions don’t matter.’
"Anyway, we’ve already been together for so long, it’s like we’re already married. It’s just a title at this point — and a ring."
Audrina admitted she is "a little scared" about giving birth and has no definite plans in place yet when it comes to labour and delivery.
She said: "I’m definitely delivering in a hospital. I’ve had friends who’ve gone without drugs and they’ve said it’s super painful but they’d never do it any other way. Meanwhile, my sister Casey, who has two kids, had an epidural both times and she made childbirth look easy. I’m not sure which route I want to take yet. Either way, I’m a little scared.
"All I know is, the moment I feel my first contraction, I’m going to the doctor. I want to be in the hospital bed, relaxing, with my lavender-oil diffuser set up."
