Although in my last few posts I've been dressed up…. today I felt I had to share my reality of being pregnant day to day. I don’t feel comfy in anything but leggings and a vest right now, and by the end of the day even the leggings are swapped for PJ bottoms!! 🤣 I'm always looking at other pregnant women online and thinking 'god I don't look like her', and I really don’t want anyone to feel like that looking at my posts. Sometimes social media can really make the glamorous moments outweigh the norm. But this is me. 🤰🏼 The truth is, I am hugely struggling with my lower back and groin! I’ve always had back problems but this is really taking its toll 😫 I don’t like to moan too much on here but the reality is I am struggling 😕 some days it’s manageable and others by the end of the day Its a struggle to even stand up. Getting my head around losing the ability to move freely is difficult at times, especially with 3 kids and dogs flying around the house like lunatics …. 🤯 On the advice of a good friend, I joined the @peanut app. Pregnancy and life in general throws us so many challenges, so I've been using the app to meet other mums. I’ve picked up so many tips on sciatica stretches that have honestly got me through the last few months of pain and it's helped me realise that it’s ok to not feel like myself. The reality is… we always share our best moments on social media, but it's important to share the not so great ones too so we can learn from one another. If you’re a mum, pregnant, or trying for a baby, I encourage you to join @peanut! It's a great way to connect with women in your area, for friendships, support and advice.🤰p.s. Ronnie is never far from my side 🙊🐶❤️ #peanutapp #ad
