Pregnant Heather Rae Young says she has 'separation anxiety' while being away from husband Tarek

Heather Rae Young shared that she experiences “separation anxiety” while away from her husband Tarek El Moussa.

The 34-year-old real estate agent – who is currently awaiting the birth of her and Tarek’s, 40, first child – shared a lovely beach photo shoot of the couple on her Instagram, revealing that this is the ‘longest time’ they’ve been apart. .

“I miss my best friend while he’s away in Cabo with the kids and our families, so I’m flipping through pictures that I love about us. This is the longest we’ve been apart since we’ve been together, so I might be getting a little separation anxiety,” she wrote.

The Selling Sunset star asked her 2.9 million followers for tips on how to distract herself while her loved ones are away.

‘Help me distract! What are your favorite books/TV shows at the moment??’ she asked.

She also said her pregnancy hormones have kicked in and shared in her Stories: “I was feeling very good hormonally until today and today I started crying out of nowhere, I don’t know where it came from. But I feel better now, it was just a moment.’

The star decided not to accompany her husband and his family on a trip to Cabo San Lucas after her doctor advised her not to.

The beauty of reality revealed to PEOPLE that she stayed at home so that she would not be exposed to possible diseases such as the Zika virus and food poisoning.

‘It’s not worth getting sick. Opportunities you can avoid, you should. Unavoidable exposures are different,” she told her doctor’s advice.

In a post shared on her Instagram on Tuesday, Young appeared pleased with her decision to settle into her Orange County residence.

“I miss @therealtarekelmoussa and the kids so much while in Cabo but they are trying to use this time to nest and make plans,” the star wrote, sharing images of possible aesthetics for her unborn child’s nursery.

While he has fun in the sun with the two children he shares with ex Christina Hall, Tarek revealed that Young was still on his mind in a post he shared with his Instagram followers on Monday.

Including a snapshot with his close-knit vacation crew, the HGTV star admitted in the caption that he missed his wife “like crazy, but doctor’s orders come first!!”

Young first let her followers know that she had made the decision to sit back in a post uploaded to Instagram on Saturday.

She lovingly sent her husband and stepchildren to Mexico, which she documented with a photo of the trio.

“My loves go to Cabo @therealtarekelmoussa,” she captioned the photo of the former Flip Or Flop host alongside his daughter Taylor, 11, and son Brayden, six, who he shares with former c-host, ex-wife Christina Hall (née Christina Haack).

Tarek, dressed in black sneakers and a baseball cap, wrapped his arms around his children for the photo that was apparently taken just before they were to catch their flight to Cabo.

Earlier that day, Young showed off her growing baby bump in a mirror selfie on her Instagram story

“Hello baby boy,” Young captioned the photo showing the reality star cradling her budding belly.

The reality star, who learned last week that she is expecting a son, was dressed in a sporty look in light brown sweatpants and a matching hoodie.

She also wore a sports bra underneath that helped show her belly, and pulled her long blond locks back from her face and into a ponytail.

With the house empty for a few days, Young focuses on her health and well-being, which includes exercising, girls time, and rest and relaxation.

Just a few hours earlier, she posted a photo of herself lying and relaxing on a couch, where she revealed she will be having a “girls weekend” with “sweats” and “eat and sleep.”

“@therealtarekelmoussa, kids and family are in Cabo,” continued Young, adding, “I was left behind because of my Dr. Recommendations. I miss my [heart] and family.’

Her day started early, hours before she sent the family to Cabo San Lucas.

‘Morning Pilates session. Been up since 5.20am,” she wrote in another Insta-Story post where she snapped the selfie while sitting on top of one of the Pilates machines.

For her early morning workout, she emphasized her growing baby bump again by wearing black leggings with a black camouflage tank top that hugged her feminine curves.

Knowing that they would be apart for a few days, Young and El Moussa spent Friday together, both work and play.

Soon mommy hard at work! Swipe to see my growing belly at work,” she began in the caption of a post showing the couple in a house being renovated while filming for their new reality series The Flipping El Moussas.

She continued: ‘It’s funny because they say that when you get pregnant you lose your energy, you have morning sickness and things get harder to do, but I’m so lucky to feel 100% good! I still wake up early, go to pilates, sit and work all day, and feel great – I asked my sister and mom about it and they were the same way so maybe it runs in the family but definitely no signs of delay.

The mom-to-be ended the post by asking a question “to all the pregnant ladies or mommies out there: What was your experience?”

El Moussa and Young met while on a fishing trip in July 2019 and tied the knot in a ceremony near Santa Barbara last October.
