Washington: Beyonce has said that she makes sure to remain fit and healthy and not ‘lose control’ during pregnancy.

The pop star had announced at the 2011 VMA awards in August that she was having her first child with husband Jay Z.

“I’ve been really conscious and I’ve been trying my best not to lose control,” People magazine quoted her as saying on the show 20/20.

“Because I’ve met so many people that say, ‘My second baby, my third baby, I’ve learned my lesson.’ So I haven’t been going crazy,” she said.

“It’s important that I don’t lose myself … I believe that life doesn’t stop” she added.
