Celebrity status doesn’t equal a picture-perfect pregnancy. Take Jessica Simpson’s pregnancy, another star who recently revealed that her third pregnancy isn’t exactly sunshine and rainbows. Read on for the scoop and find out how Simpson’s pregnancy might be all too relatable for many of us.
In January Simpson made us all (and by “us all” we mean the social media-verse) worry when she Instagrammed a pic of her seriously swollen foot, asking, “Any remedies?! Help!!!!” But the IG-worthy pregnancy problems didn’t stop there.
Earlier this week the celeb mama posted a selfie along with the caption, “After a month of sciatica pain, followed by 3 weeks of Bronchitis, I figured since my feet fit in my sneaks today I needed to walk out a lot of anxiety!!” As if being pregnant isn’t stressful enough, add in the swollen cankles (and feet too, of course), illness and back pain all while being in the spotlight and we totally understand why Simpson needed to “walk out a lot of anxiety.”
Oh but wait, Simpson’s soon-to-be mama times three woes didn’t end there. Apparently along with everything else, the pregnant celeb also can’t sleep. In a more recent IG post she wrote, “Walking in the rain to fight off insomnia.”
It looks like the Insta-world is here for Simpson, adding plenty of supportive comments to get the star through this tough time. One IG commenter wrote, “You got this Mama!” And we totally agree. Hey, pregnancy isn’t all sunshine and rainbows. Right? But, despite the swollen feet, sciatica and lack of sleep that plenty of us (obviously including Simpson) endure, it’s sooooo worth it.
