Creative Mom Reveals The Struggles Of Being Pregnant From Week To Week In Hilariously Honest Pics

When mom of two Maya Vorderstrasse got tired of seeing pregnancy portrayed as perfect and easy on social media, she decided to show the world how it actually feels.

“Honestly I was so tired of seeing motherhood portrayed as perfect, flawless, and effortless on social media because I never felt like it was like that for me,” she told Huffington. “So I embraced my chaotic life, and decided to share it with everyone in the hopes of helping other mothers realize that it’s OK to not have it all figured out.” So, when Vorderstrasse was pregnant, she regularly posted pictures next to a letter board, sharing how she was feeling or thinking that day. From food cravings to wild bladder to swollen feet – she shared how pregnancy actually feels in the most hilarious and honest way. Vorderstrasse gave birth to her daughter just over two weeks ago and she’s continuing to share her funny letter board pics – we can’t wait to see how they progress! You can check them out below, and follow this funny mom on Instagram.

Great sense of humor here from Maya. This is the best way to send messages to others and not appear offensive. She deserves a special award for her originality. :D

Love it! Only 11% of women enjoy pregnancy. 39 weeks here and have not worn pants in 3 weeks. I walk around the house in my husband's shirts - only thing that's still comfortable! Can't turn in bed without feeling like someone stabbed my hips, get up literally every hour to pee and if I ever end up on my back I'm like a downed turtle :') but still painting and cleaning and keeping it up and getting annoyed at my husband complaining when he took a bit to fall asleep xD oh and the fluid retention is awesome - my thumb will literally pop out of its socket if I bend it too early in the morning :') And yes... somehow... it's still worth it!
