The personal trainer added: ‘The baby is doing amazing apparently, and I wanted to let you guys know that I am in good health. I’ve just been told to lay low, take it easy.’
‘No strenuous activity. Taking it easy is not easy for me. As you may have realised by now, I am a very high-energy person. I like to do all the things. But yeah, doctors orders.’
The reality star went on to reveal she had hired a cleaner over the past week to reduce the housework she was doing while pregnant. But she said she is not able to go to the gym.
She said she now has more time on her hands to work on her friendships.
‘I have all this extra time up my sleeve is to catch up with friends that I normally don’t get time to see, so that part of it has been amazing and just reminded me to put more effort into friendships,’ Krystal said.
