Speaking to Stellar Magazine, Jules admitted that she thought falling pregnant at 37 years old was “going to come with a fight”.
“I had it in my head that it was going to be a problem,” she shared.
“Because of my age I had done all the hormone testing, the egg count… so much is instilled that you’re going to struggle because of your age.”
Jules found out she was pregnant just 10 minutes before filming the body positivity campaign for her shapewear line in January.
“I knew [I was pregnant] because I felt so sick. I went to make some food and I was so hungry. I was cutting it up and I just got waterfalls, and I was like, ‘Oh, I don’t feel right.’ I did the test straight away and it was negative,” the 37-year-old said.
“I was with Cam at the time and, for some reason, I just left it on the side of the bathroom bench. I could have thrown it in the bin, but I just thought, ‘No I’m going to hold on to that.’ I really don’t know why I felt that. So I took a shower and when I got out it was positive.”
“We were so excited and just kept repeating to each other ‘two lines, two lines’ [on the test]. It definitely didn’t sink in straight away,” Cam added.
