Helen Flanagan has insisted that her third pregnancy would be her last as she has found it challenging and hasn't "felt like herself."

The 30-year-old Coronation Street actress has opened up about her struggles in a couple of lengthy Instagram posts, in which she details why this time around hasn't been the happy experience she has had in the past.

Helen shared some stunning snaps from a lingerie photo shoot for Pour Moi, in which she showcased her seven months baby bump,

While Helen looks likes she is blossoming as she reaches her third trimester, the Corrie star revealed that the photos are masking a difficult few months in her life.

She has spoken about how having a hyperemesis gravidarum pregnancy has affected her and made her decide that this would be the last time she does this.

Hyperemesis gravidarum is a pregnancy complication that is characterised by severe nausea, vomiting, weight loss, and possibly dehydration.

In a lengthy caption to accompany the lingerie pics, Helen wrote: 'Finally in my third trimester. 7 months now.

"I've definitely found this pregnancy a challenge after having a hyperemesis gravidarum pregnancy and I’ve not really felt like myself since I fell pregnant I still have nausea most days but just grateful that I don’t have hyperemesis gravidarum anymore and can be a mum to the girls and get about doing things."

Helen continued: "I do feel anxious about my labour. I’ve always had a bit of a fear about giving birth and I have been scared before each labour though I’ve been really lucky to have two really good positive labours.

"Midwives are just amazing. I’m trying a hypnotherapy course this time round. For me I work myself up in my head which is way worse than the actual labour."

Helen also describes how back pain has meant that she has needed help from fiancé Scott Sinclair when it comes to bathing and bedtime for daughters Matilda and Delilah.

Helen continued: "I genuinely would love a girl or a boy. I’d love to have three girls and sisters together, a girl gang and i would equally adore to have a little boy a son as it’s a totally new experience.

"I just feel lucky to carry with other women close to me not having such an easy time.

"This is definitely my last pregnancy. I had Matilda at 24 and I wanted my children close together and it just feels right for me."

Speaking about the challenges of this pregnancy, Helen wrote: "I would never want to go through the hyperemesis again, it wouldn’t be fair on the children I already have and I want to give each child as much attention as each other.

"I thought I’d feel sad if I knew I was carrying my last but the hyperemis has been a blessing as it’s took that away."

The actress said that she had contemplated a home birth but decided that heading to hospital when she goes into labour would be a "calmer" way to deliver.

She continued: "What I have liked about being pregnant is my hormones have been really stable.

"Before I fell pregnant I was getting a diagnosis of PMDD and seeing a hormone specialist as my moods were hugely impacted by my cycle so I’ve really enjoyed not having the highs and lows from my menstrual cycle."

Helen posted more pics from her photo shoot and continued to tell her fans about the struggles she has had during this pregnancy.

In a second lengthy caption, Helen wrote: "Also I’ve loved having clear skin which I never usually have as I always have a bit of a battle with hormonal acne.

"Sometimes I feel a bit overwhelmed at the thought of having three little ones. I sometimes think- how will I juggle everything?

"Sometimes I think will I ever leave the house but I think every new mum thinks that regardless of how many children she has.

"I always find it takes me a good month to feel a bit normal to recover from labour, to get to grips with nursing and to get out the house with more ease."

With two-year-old Delilah "very much the baby of the family", Helen is curious to see how she will react to a new baby in the house, requiring a lot of attention.

Helen wrote: "Matilda was never jealous of Delilah just so sweet with her.

"Delilah loves her dolly’s though so I have a feeling she will be like her sister and just want to hold and kiss the baby.

"I get quite swollen at 36 weeks usually my feet and ankles just completely swell so much.

"I have no ankles (I always get checked out with the midwife as I know swelling is something you have to watch)

"I’ve recently had quite a bit of rib pain which I know is something you need to tell your midwife so I have done and we’re keeping on eye on it."

Helen concluded: "Very excited to meet my little one, Love them so much already."
