Just because you’ve already experienced the pains and discomfort of pregnancy once, doesn’t mean it gets any easier the second time. Hilary Duff is pregnant with her second child and took to Instagram with a post on the challenges of pregnancy that all moms can relate to.

The Younger star got candid on Instagram with a picture revealing her growing baby bump. “The boobs are big the belly is big the body is big. Man.. pregnancy is hard,” Duff wrote in the post. Every pregnancy is different and even when you’ve been through it before, the crazy changes happening to your body can still hit you hard.

“Lovely to have a little life inside and to day dream of all the new adventures to come buuuut almost impossible to get my own shoes on..sick of getting up 9 times a night to pee and looking at this weird body in the mirror that is not my own at the moment,” she admitted.

My sweet sweet boy. Oh the adventures we’ve had 💙
