Morning sickness was so bad I couldn't move; Singer Frankie Bridge opens her heart about pregnancy ordeal.

Byline: Maria Croce

THE Saturdays singer Frankie Bridge was literally floored by morning sickness, she has revealed.

Frankie and footballer husband Wayne announced in January they're to have a second child this year.

Now Frankie has told how she can now enjoy her second pregnancy after suffering extreme morning sickness in the early weeks which left her unable to get up off the floor.

Frankie, 26, who is also mum to son Parker, 17 months, explained how this pregnancy has been a very different experience.

She told OK! Magazine: "It has been quite different. I feel more hormonal compared with the first one. And I've had really bad skin and obviously I was really sick. But I do feel more relaxed about it.

"It kicked in when I was about seven weeks and that first bout of sickness was the worst.

"Even to move my eyes made me feel sick. I somehow ended up lying on the floor with a bowl and I couldn't move. They wanted me to go to hospital at one point and I refused because there was no way I could get in a car, I couldn't even get off the floor."

Frankie is due to have a caesarean section in five months - but hopes to find out the sex of the baby before the birth.

She said: "I don't think you can prepare for how much you love them."
