Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi may be expecting her third child, but that doesn’t mean being pregnant is any easier.
The Jersey Shore: Family Vacation star — who recently learned the sex of her upcoming child with husband Jionni LaValle — wished her followers a “Happy Friday” on Instagram, but posted a photo that looked far from it.
In the shot, Polizzi, 31, sits on the floor in gray sweatpants and a camouflage sweatshirt while she throws up into a toilet. “Happy Friday!🤰🏽#PregnantProblems #JesusTakeTheWheel #CouldI😞” she captioned the image.
To share the exciting baby news, Polizzi posted a photo of her children holding her sonogram on Instagram and captioned it, “What I’m thankful for this Thanksgiving.”
Aided in their reveal by their oldest child, the couple watched as Lorenzo geared up to hit a baseball with colored powder inside that would tell their friends and family assembled on the yard whether the new addition would be a girl or boy.
“Go Lorenzo, you got this, honey! Big brother!” the mother-of-two could be heard encouraging him behind the camera as Lorenzo smiled and hit the grass with the bat.

A few seconds later, as Polizzi and Giovanna looked on, LaValle gently tossed the ball toward his son, who took a confident swing and made impressive contact.
Out exploded a cloud of blue as the family’s guests cheered and jumped up and down, exclaiming, “It’s a boy!”
The newest LaValle is due in June.

In a vlog shared to her YouTube channel late last month, Polizzi recalled that she and LaValle had “been trying” to conceive their third child “since July,” lamenting, “I was getting a little worried because it wasn’t happening as soon as I wanted it to.”
The expectant reality star previously admitted her preference for her third child’s sex — and fortunately for her, her wish was granted.
In March 2016, she told E! News, “I don’t want any more girls. If I have a girl, I’m just going to be really upset about it.”
