The ‘Without Me’ singer reveals she was ‘so angry’ with herself as she thought she might have harmed her baby after deciding to ditch prenatal vitamins when her ‘vomiting got really bad.’
AceShowbiz –Halsey felt she was a failure as a mum-to-be when she couldn’t keep her prenatal vitamins down. The pop star admits she turned to her doctor in tears six weeks after choosing to ditch the course, fearing she had harmed her unborn baby.
“I took them the first two months, and then the vomiting got really bad, and I had to make a choice between taking my prenatals and throwing up or maintaining the nutrients I did manage to eat that day,” she tells Allure. “I was on so many medications – Diclegis and Zofran and all these anti-nausea, anti-vomiting medications.”
“I went to my doctor, crying my eyes out, and I was like, ‘I haven’t taken my prenatals in six weeks. Is my baby OK?’ I was so angry with myself. You have one f**king job! One job! Take your prenatals! Your body’s doing everything else, you can’t even do that. I felt like such a failure.”
But her doctor assured her everything was fine and she and her baby were perfectly fine.
Halsey also reveals her dream of being the perfect mum-to-be was a flop on day one because she didn’t want to take yoga sessions and “eat flaxseed.”
“When this pregnancy started, I was like, ‘You’re going to do yoga and eat flaxseed. You’re going to use essential oils and hypnobirth and meditate and f**king journal every single day’. I have done none of those things. Zero. None. I eat cookies and had a bagel every single day for the first five months of my pregnancy.”
The birth of Halsey’s baby, whose father is her boyfriend Alev Aydin, is due imminently.
