In a frank interview with Show And Tell, Megan Gale has revealed the lengths she went to in order to fall pregnant a second time.
The 41-year-old – who is mum to three-year-old River with partner Shaun Hampson – confessed that after six months of trying for another baby, she took a three-week break from work so she could put all her efforts into conceiving.
Revealing the six month period before getting pregnant ‘felt like forever,’ Megan said:
'We got to the six months (and) I was like, "Right, that's it, I'm taking three weeks off, I'm chilling out,"'
'It took us so long because there was so many things, like Shaun was either injured or I was travelling and it sort of didn't line up.'
'As soon as we just sort of slowed everything down and stopped, it happened.'
Going into more depth about the technicalities and timings, Megan explained.
'As much as you head into it thinking, "We're going to keep it sexy and we're going to keep it romantic", you can't help going, "Am I ovulating? What's going on? Is it in the window? Did we miss the window?"'
The Aussie model broke the news that she was expecting her second child in April, a year after she suffered a devastating miscarriage.
'This time it's been, "Is it growing enough?" Before every scan it was, "Is the heartbeat going to be there? Am I going to get that bad news again?"'
