Heavily pregnant Lauren Goodger has told fans she's slowing down and preparing to head off on maternity leave later this week.

The former TOWIE star, who is expecting her first child with boyfriend Charles Drury next month, took to social media to let followers know that she's in her last days left at work before her baby's arrival.

Taking to her Instagram, Stories she posted a close-up lip-smacking image with embedded bright bold pink text which reads: "Ladies I have three appointments left until I am on maternity leave… I don't have a return date so please take the last 3 apps which is this week."

The reality star, who owns LG Aesthetics, previously revealed she is expecting a baby girl earlier in her pregnancy and even had a 4D scan to get a glimpse of the growing little one.

She gushed: "Some pics of baby girl we got at the 4d scan, what we could get with her moving about and hand in front face. What is little one going to look like I can’t tell? Mumma or Dadda what you think? Can’t wait meet you now."

The brunette beauty previously admitted during an Instagram Q&A she found the first three months of her pregnancy 'quite difficult' due to sickness and nausea.

She explained: "I felt very, very sick but wasn't actually sick all the time.

"I have been sick a few times, or just had the feeling, I would rather have been sick because it's a mental release."

And looking towards her due date next month, Lauren said she is looking to give birth 'the old-fashioned way'.

She told The Mail Online: 'I want a completely natural birth, I don't want any epidural or anything, I literally want gas and air, the old fashioned way."

But for now at least Lauren has looked to enjoy her final weekend as a working girl as she shared snaps of her gorgeous home and celebrated with a BBQ on Sunday.

Lauren shot to stardom after appearing on The Only Way is Essex in 2010.
