Australian fitness star and mother-of-one, Emily Skye, has shared a photo of her ‘rapidly growing’ pregnant belly after noticing how much ‘bigger’ it was than her first pregnancy.
The 24-weeks-pregnant personal trainer, 35, posted side-by-side images to Instagram, comparing her two pregnancies – her first with daughter Mia and second with her unborn son – at the same stage.
‘Just slightly bigger this pregnancy! Do you think my belly will continue to grow at this rapid rate or slow down towards the end?’ She wrote.

‘It’s amazing how pregnancies can differ so much isn’t it! I’m very grateful for my body for growing my son so well… SO VERY WELL!’
Emily’s day on a plate
Breakfast: Egg, spinach and haloumi wrap
Lunch: Organic chicken breast and steamed vegetables with hemp seasoning, coconut teriyaki sauce and roasted sweet seaweed
Snack: Smoothie or berry yoghurt with an apple
Dinner: Beef, lime and coriander fajita bowl
She said that she ‘can’t stop eating’ due to a ‘lack of self control’.
‘I am a completely different person. When I’m not pregnant I’m pretty good with food and can control myself… but I am completely out of control right now.’
Emily said her belly was ‘rapidly growing’ and questioned whether she’d be able to walk by the time she was full term.
‘I’m actually not joking,’ she wrote.
Emily has been keeping fans up-to-date with her pregnancy, regularly posting videos and photos to Instagram.

‘Do three to six rounds depending on your fitness level and how you’re feeling. Take rests as needed,’ she said.
