From morning sickness to mood swings, hot flashes to tummy aches, The Real Housewives of Orange County alum Gretchen Rossi is suffering all the rough symptoms pregnancy has to offer! Click through 7 bump-bearing photos as Rossi’s fiancé and baby daddy Slade Smiley tells RadarOnline.com all there is to know about her pregnancy.
Rossi, 40 — who, after years of trying, conceived her first child with Slade Smiley through IVF — is keeping it real with her fans! On Instagram, Rossi wrote, “First trimester is kicking my butt! 12 weeks!”
But Rossi isn’t the only one who is worn down by the baby on the way! “There are lots of belly rubs and foot rubs to help her sleep and I am making sure she doesn't have to pick up around the house, get gas for the car or worry about cleaning and laundry. She gets anything she wants while my baby is busy making our baby,” Smiley told Radar.
But what about the morning sickness? “First of all, Gretchen feels like poo most of the time right now. She has had very bad morning sickness, which she likes to refer to as all-day sickness,” Smiley added.
“I am taking care of her as best I can. She has major swings in temperature, first she is freezing and can't get warm so she cranks up the thermostat to a setting I call ‘Brazil!’ I walk in from work and it's like stepping into a sweaty rain forest, which wrecks me,” the excited future father told Radar.
“Then, just like that, her freezing turns to overheating and she gets hot flashes and needs a fan, popsicles and a rag to cool off with,” he said. “Not to mention her food cravings!”
“Gretchen has had a big range of cravings from pickles to popsicles but the hard part is, every time she has a craving, I run out to get it. By the time I get back, it doesn't sound good to her anymore and she won't eat it!” Slade told Radar.
