Jessica Simpson's latest pregnancy has been anything but easy.
"Children’s talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives." - Maya Angelou
Nonetheless, the mom of two is celebrating the small milestones — like being able to fit her feet in a pair of sneakers.
The 38-year-old took to Instagram and shared a post about how she's been battling a lot of pregnancy struggles.
"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!!," Simpson wrote in a caption.
Sciatica refers to back pain caused when the sciatic nerve is pinched and is a common (and painful) pregnancy symptom.
“After a month of sciatica pain, followed by 3 weeks of Bronchitis,” the fashion designer, 38, began a caption on Instagram on Sunday, February 3, “I figured since my feet fit in my sneaks today … I needed to walk out a lot of anxiety!!” The accompanying photo showed the MTV alum wearing pink sunglasses and a red hat with a magenta pom-pom.

The actress had given us a preview of her swollen pregnancy feet last month when she participated in the #10YearChallenge. Normally, people would upload side-by-side photos of themselves from 10 years ago and now. Simpson decided to take a different kind of photo.
The old photo showed Simpson in open-toed wedge sandals, and the recent photo showed puffy, swollen feet, which is a common occurrence for pregnant women.
Give appropriate praise. Instead of simply saying, "You're great," try to be specific about what your child did to deserve the positive feedback. You might say, "Waiting until I was off the phone to ask for cookies was hard, and I really liked your patience."
Simpson is currently pregnant with her third child.
