And she let her fans know what some of her relatives will be opening on Christmas Day.
She wrote: 'On the bright side,
managed to pick up Professor Snape Wand in Ollivanders box and Slitherin
pen for Nephews Xmas present. #luckyboy (sic)'
Feeling faint and dizzy is a common amongst pregnant women.
It is due to hormonal changes in the body.
Lily is currently pregnant with her second child with husband Sam Cooper. She is believed to be due next month.
She announced that she was pregnant again in July, tweeting: 'Thank you for all your congratulations today. I honestly couldn't be happier'
It's a big day for Lily and Sam on Sunday – they celebrate their daughter Ethel's first birthday.
