Pregnant Louise Thompson and fiancé Ryan Libbey have been relishing some quality time together at a relaxing spa retreat in Wiltshire before they welcome their first child together.

The Made In Chelsea star looked stunning in a flattering black cross-back swimsuit as she posed poolside for a gorgeous set of snaps. She posted the radiant pictures to Instagram with a caption detailing what it felt like to go swimming while pregnant.

Although the 31 year old mum-to-be dubbed the experience "very fun and quite liberating," Louise did say she "strongly disagreed" with those who said swimming while pregnant makes you feel weightless. In fact, she shot the theory down altogether by painting a pretty hilarious image.

She wrote: "People say that swimming is the one time that you don’t feel pregnant – that you feel weightless. I have to say as someone who used to compete in regular swimming competitions where breaststroke was my thing, I strongly disagree…

"It’s a whole different ball game. I felt like my belly was going to drag along the bottom of the pool (like one of those cleaning robots) hahahaa."

"It was, however, very fun and quite liberating!!!!" she added.

One follower responded, saying: "You’re not big enough yet… wait until your 36 weeks + with a 10 pound baby, your belly skin is stretched to max and it’s 34 degrees. Swimming will be the sweetest thing!"

The reality star turned fitness guru went on to ask her 1.2 million followers if they had any recommendations for picking out maternity swimwear.

She wrote: "Anyone got any tips for buying attractive maternity swimwear? I’ve now gone up 5 cup sizes and this black jobby was a last minute desperate purch from a surf shop down in Devon."

Others took the opportunity to shower the tanned beauty with complements. One wrote: "Looks amazing Louise!!! Pregnancy really suits you." While another commented: "I wish I'd looked as good as you whilst I was pregnant! You look amazing! Suits you"

The pregnant beauty did indeed look incredible as she cradled her growing bump at Lucknam Park Hotel & Spa near Chippenham.

Louise announced her pregnancy back in May and she and Ryan are expecting their little one in October.
