Being sick isn’t fun, but being sick while pregnant is something else.
“After a week in the hospital for bronchitis (my fourth time in 2 months), I’m finally home! Coughing with Birdie has been a crazy painful journey,” Simpson, who revealed at her baby shower in January that she picked the name Birdie for her baby girl, wrote after a hospital stay in early March.
“I am slowly getting healthier every day,” Simpson continued. “Baby girl was monitored and is doing amazing! I am on my way to healthy and counting down the days to see her sweet smile. Sending love and prayers to all the mothers who are going or have gone through this. OUCH.”
Broken Toilet Seats
“Warning…Don’t lean back on the toilet when pregnant,” she wrote in a helpful PSA to fellow expectant moms.
In February, the singer shared that “severe” reflux “led to the purchase of my very own sleep recliner.” (At least it looks cozy?)
The Growing Bump
“Tight squeeze but I’m pushin’ through,” she wrote in a caption every pregnant woman can relate to.
Simpson’s baby girl has her suffering the classic (and cruel) symptom: a lack of sleep. Her solution? “Walking in the rain to fight insomnia.”
Anxiety (and More)
“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!!” the exhausted mom-to-be wrote on Instagram.
That slightly lowered immune system during pregnancy led Simpson to take a “Sick Day” in early January.
Simpson spoke for all moms when she wrote this caption: “This momma wants sleeeeeeeep.”
Rarely Going Out
Pregnant + two kids = early bedtimes, but in this case, Simpson was “Staying out past 7pm.”
“Flattering pregnant selfies are close to a miracle,” she captioned this gorgeous shot. So when you get one, share it!
