The former prison officer announced last week she was expecting her third child.
The 36-year-old revealed her first tour would now be postponed from October to January due to the pregnancy.
Since the announcement, Bailey has received negative messages via social networking site Twitter, with some commenting she will "soon be forgotten".
She said: "I'm always going to be working no matter what. I'm living proof you can do it, whether you're pregnant or have kids already."
"So many people do it. Myleene Klass does it. Victoria Beckham does it - she's got four and she's still working."
