With an underactive thyroid, the gland does not produce enough hormones, leading to symptoms such as fatigue. weight gain or depression.

It can be treated by taking hormone pills daily and having regular blood tests.

Olivia added: “My numbers are good but they’re fluctuating a bit. I had no problems with pregnancy and did not do it during pregnancy.

“I’m being monitored and my medication has been increased slightly, but I’m still classified as low-risk at the moment.”

Olivia has shared her pregnancy journey online and in an exclusive chat with Mirror Online last month, the reality star opened up about how she feels “mourning the girl I was” as she described the challenges of pregnancy.

After rising to fame on Love Island in 2016 – widely considered the wildest series of all time – Olivia said she’s “leaving that person behind” as she prepares to step into her next chapter, motherhood.

“I think it’s recognizable that your life is about to change quite dramatically, and I’m a bit saddened for the person you are leaving behind,” she said.

“That’s how it feels to me. I’m going into this new life mourning the girl I was before. It’s just a strange feeling, it’s not a terrible feeling. It’s pretty overwhelming.”

The couple met on the reality show’s second series, which was filled with X-rated moments, complicated love triangles and drunken arguments.

But almost six years later and happily married, the couple are far from their wild childhood days after settling into a £1million mansion in the Essex countryside.

Now in her third trimester, the television personality admitted it was “pretty scary to realize we still have a few months left.”

“I just felt like my stomach had suddenly completely grown and it’s not easy to roll out of bed. I can’t even pick something up off the floor,” she said.

“It was just pretty hard to come to terms with not being able to do what I normally do.”

The couple are determined to keep their baby’s gender a surprise until birth, but admitted they were “frantic” trying to figure out the gender during a recent scan.

“We had a scan the other day and were frantic trying to figure it out and I had a dream it was a girl but I had a dream it was a boy so I don’t really care helped,” said Olivia.

“I thought it would tell me something, but I dreamed both. I guess I’m just trying to imagine what it’s going to be like. I have no idea. People say, “Oh, I had a feeling,” but I can’t say it. I’d like to know.”
