After months of waiting for your new baby to arrive getting to the delivery can be stressful, scary, messy, amazing, silly, and beautiful all at once. Kristen Bell recently posted to Instagram a look back at the day her 3-year-old daughter was born and it’s pure, sweet perfection.

“Three years ago today. 47lbs heavier. Getting through painful contractions with backrubs and breathing,” Bell shared in a honest and totally relatable Instagram post. “Occasionally swinging from the IV pole to try and feel sexy and open up my hips. After 36 hours of labor I met a girl i love more than all the molecules in all the world. Happy birthday, Delta. Love, mom.”

The pictures, which include Bell stretching on a birthing ball, sporting mesh underwear, dancing with an IV like its a stripper pole, and last, but certainly not least a sweet, cuddly moment between mom and daughter, are both hilarious and completely real at the same time.

The single hashtag, #meshpanties, is probably the most defining of the whole post because every mom has totally been there after delivery and can 100% relate. Once again Kristen Bell manages to prove that she totally gets us.
