Jessica Simpson's latest pregnancy has been anything but easy.

"Recommend virtue to your children; it alone, not money, can make them happy. I speak from experience." - Ludwig van Beethoven

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.

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.
