The reality star took to Instagram to share her pregnancy news.

Earlier this year, Thompson suffered a miscarriage, which has influenced her decision to document her current pregnancy.

In her most recent announcement, the star shared that she is happy to have reached the "hopeful milestone" of 12 weeks.

"Unlike last time, Ryan and I haven't documented our journey at all," she wrote. "I've hardly taken any pictures or videos for fear that something might happen."

Louise also mentioned that she's been suffering from fatigue and other symptoms.

"I've also felt like ASS," she said. "I never knew that fatigue or 'flatness' like this existed in pregnancy."

The Made in Chelsea star added that instead of before-and-after photoshoots, she has a drawer filled with a "bazillion, gazillion pregnancy tests".

She acknowledged Ryan for being "such a sensitive partner", and added that he is going to make "the best dad in the world".

The reality star then shared her news, and added that she would have liked to wait a little longer, but felt she could no longer hide the physical signs of her pregnancy.

"There is absolutely ZERO room left in this 5ft short torso for a growing bump except to push MASSIVELY outwards which means it's becoming very hard to hide."

Louise went on to ask her followers for advice on one side-effect in particular.

"There are so many things happening to my body THAT NO ONE TALKS ABOUT," she said.

"Hormones are a thing of absolute madness and pregnancy coupled with ulcerative colitis has been a major killjoy and particularly anxiety-inducing.

"Who's experienced it? I've always been a firm believer that women are superhuman for what they put up with and now I have even more reason to stand by that."
