Oh no! Carrie Underwood‘s friends and family have a “real good feelin’ that somethin’ bad about to happen” — unless she scales down her appearances. The expecting mom is allegedly on the verge of burning herself out because of her “insane drive to succeed,” but Carrie needs to slow down because she is jeopardizing her health.
“Carrie’s been flying all over the world, making the rounds on the talk show circuit, doing red carpets at awards shows, and performing. It’s really been taking a toll on her,” a friend told OK! in the magazine’s latest issue, on newsstands now. Carrie, 35, is apparently working overtime to promote her new album, Cry Pretty, when she should really be nurturing her pregnancy.
The “Before He Cheats” singer was forced to cancel two UK shows in September after she contracted a viral infection that left her in the hospital for three days. “She was ordered to bed rest by her doctors,” the friend disclosed. “She’s been doing way too much and needs to slow down for the sake of her health. This isn’t the time to overextend herself.”
As if being pregnant while trying to juggle a music career isn’t complicated enough, Carrie admitted to ET that this pregnancy is undeniably harder than her past pregnancy with her three-year-old son, Isaiah. “It’s definitely different than the first time,” Carrie said on the red carpet of the 2018 CMT Artists of The Year award show. “When they say every pregnancy is different, it really is. Just different symptoms. I feel like this one is just a little harder on my body for some reason. But it’s been really good.”
Carrie’s husband, Mike Fisher, is especially concerned. “Everyone is gently pushing her to scale back on travel and the appearances, especially Mike,” an insider revealed. “He’s begging her to head back home to Nashville and take it easy.”
Mike, 38, has his wife’s best interest in mind and just wants her to be healthy for this baby considering Carrie has suffered three miscarriages in two years. Her friends and family are worried that Mike is fighting a losing battle. The friend said that Carrie has an insane thirst for prospering, “even though what she really needs is to take some time off and focus on herself.”
It looks like Carrie will have to do just that after Nov. 14, because the Grammy-winning artist is hosting the CMAs. The soon-to-be mom-of-two is expected to give birth in early 2019, so she better get to rest before it’s too late!
