What is Dani Dyer's pregnancy condition?

Dani revealed that she had a pregnancy condition that might mean she won't feel her baby move.

Telling her friends, fans and followers on Instagram the mum-to-be, 24, explained she has an anterior placenta – which is completely normal, and should not cause problems for the baby's development.

But what is does mean is that Dani's placenta is in front of her uterus, so it acts like a cushion and minimises feeling.

On the anterior placenta, Dani said: "It's basically my placenta is at the front [of the uterus] so it cushions the baby, so they said I might not be able to feel the kick and movements as much.

"I was like 'what other ones [placentas] are there?' but I thought as long as the baby's healthy, stop stressing about it.

Dani also opened up about suffering from extreme tiredness and fatigue as well as severe headaches.

She confessed that she only manages to wash her hair twice a week and spends most days in her pyjamas.
