Jessica Simpson's latest pregnancy has been anything but easy.
Sheryl Crow (mom to sons Wyatt (above) and Levi): “Wyatt [my adopted son] is definitely all mine. Little souls find their way to you whether they’re from your womb or someone else’s.”
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.
Create tech-free zones. Keep family mealtimes, other family and social gatherings, and children's bedrooms screen free. Turn off televisions that you aren't watching, because background TV can get in the way of face-to-face time with kids. Recharge devices overnight—outside your child's bedroom to help him or her avoid the temptation to use them when they should be sleeping. These changes encourage more family time, healthier eating habits, and better sleep.
Simpson is currently pregnant with her third child.
