Marnie Simpson is pregnant with her first child OK! magazine]
I’m feeling really good, and I feel like my pregnancy is finally starting to sink in. The pregnancy was completely unplanned so it was a bit a shock, but I’m really getting used to it now and I just can’t wait. I feel like it’s dragging and I just want the baby to be here now. I’m just constantly thinking about it.
The big reveal
Not one person knew about my pregnancy as I kept it a total secret until it was revealed. My phone went a bit crazy on the day the big reveal, but it was so worth it because everyone’s reaction was just epic.
I told my family like my mum and Casey’s family, but I didn’t tell any my friends or anything like that so it was a total surprise.

Having it a secret between me and Casey made it so fun. I think people were really shocked to find out that I was pregnant because out all the Geordie Shore girls, everyone thought I would be the last, so it was just such a big surprise.
Everyone has been so positive and can’t believe it. All us Geordie Shore girls have always had a lot hate and a lot trolling, but I feel like I’m pleasantly surprised at how nice everyone has been. Honestly, it’s made it that bit more special.
A baby Geordie
The Geordie Shore gang have been absolutely amazing. Chloe Ferry didn’t believe me and was like: ‘You’re lying, you’re lying’ and it took her about 20 minutes to actually believe me!

Sophie Kasaei burst into tears, Charlotte Crosby burst into tears aswell and was like ‘I can’t wait to see you, I can’t believe it’. Charlotte had loads questions and Holly Hagan was really excited about planning the gender reveal. Nathan Henry was just obsessed with being the godfather!
They all had really different reactions, but it was really good. It’s so much better to be able to tell everyone now and not have to hide away and wear baggy clothes.
Cravings and tiredness
My pregnancy is going really well actually. Considering what I’d heard about other people, I think I’ve had an OK pregnancy, I haven’t really been sick.

I have felt sick, every day around 5 o’clock I start to feel really nauseous and get a bit a bad head, but I haven’t actually been sick. I’ve been able to work and get on with things.
With cravings, I’m such a picky eater that I haven’t really been eating more – I’ve been eating the same amount. What I’ve noticed is that I’m a lot more picky about what I fancy. Normally I will just eat anytime, anywhere, I’m not fussy at all. But now I’m really fussy, I’m very much more savoury and carbs and I’ve been craving a lot tuna and tuna salads and sandwiches.
My biggest symptom is tiredness I would say. I’m really tired every single day and it’s really frustrating. I’ve forgotten what it feels like to not feel tired!
Boy or Girl?

We’re going to find out the gender at the end May and I just can’t wait. You can find out the gender from like 10 weeks now, so when I found out I was pregnant I wanted to find out straight away. So it’s felt like months that I’ve been waiting to find out! It’s killing me, I just want to know.
I feel like I don’t so much have a feeling about what I’m having, as much as people are telling me what I’m having! The majority people say I’m having a girl, so I have a feeling I’m having a girl because everyone is telling me I am! It could go either way you just don’t know.
I’m always brainstorming names and I do have a few that I like that are very close to my heart because I don’t want anyone to take them.

The perfect partner
My boyfriend Casey Johnson is so bad at picking names, honestly he is terrible. I’ll be picking the names definitely!
I think Casey is going to be a really good dad. He is going to be really hands on and he’s always been very supportive in everything I do. I just feel so safe and I know that he is going to be there every step the way.
That’s all for this week guys, but stay tuned for my column next week.
