Mom Shares Wickedly Funny Pregnancy Pics and We're Here For It

Maya Vorderstrasse had a baby, then discovered two months later that she was pregnant again. OMG, right? The soon-to-be mom of "Irish twins" decided to document her second pregnancy via Instagram like she had her first.

Here she is with her newborn, Zoey, announcing her second pregnancy. At first, she was keeping the whole thing Instagram pretty.

There's nothing wrong with sweet and pretty, but can we all agree that not everything about pregnancy is sweet and pretty? At a certain point, Vorderstrasse decided to get really real.


We've been keeping a secret! Our little family is not so little anymore.... Baby #2 is in the making! Zoey will be a big sister in August, and we couldn't be any happier! ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿผ #pregnancyannouncement #momswithcameras #vscobaby #babynumber2 #family #irishtwins #pregnant #12weekspregnant


Dat bump life ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿผ #27weekspregnant

"Up until about halfway through the pregnancy, I was still taking pretty pictures, but I would try and insert a relatable caption," she told ABC News. "But then it came to a point where I said, 'I'm way too tired and hurting. I can't pretend it's this amazing feeling all the time.' It's hard, I was achy and I had my other child crawling and I felt fake, portraying something that just wasn't my reality.โ€


Hold that thought. Gotta pee. Again. #pregnancyproblems ๐Ÿคฐ๐Ÿป

She used a letter board to put into words what she was going through and the results are funny AF.

Turns out her wicked, realistic and utterly relatable sense of humor was something the internet was craving badly because the likes started pouring in.


Dangerous territory, husband ๐Ÿคฐ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ฟ #33weekspregnant

"When my first one went viral and got over 6,000 โ€˜likes,โ€™ the one where I'm [fake] choking my husband because he took my food, that was the one that made me realize how much people like these and could relate," Vorderstrasse said. "People were messaging me saying, 'Oh, my gosh, that's exactly how I feel. Thank you for being so honest about that.' They feel like it's OK to not have it all together and these other moms felt like they belonged somewhere reading my posts."

As the weeks progressed, she kept bringing the real and the funny.


So I made him try being me for an hour. Didn't last 15 min. #39weekspregnant #heymileywhatsgood #ilovemyhusband ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป๐Ÿ”ฅ

And it was really funny.


How can that fit through that??!? Asking for a friend... ๐Ÿ˜ซ#40weekspregnant

Come on, what mother hasnโ€™t wondered HOW something that big is going to get through something that small?!

Then, on August 3, Hazel was born.


Hello, everyone! ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿผ. I'm slowly getting to the beautiful messages everyone has sent me, I can't believe I have such thoughtful friends here, thank you so so so much!!

But Vorderstrasse isnโ€™t done documenting the truth.


Don't act like you don't know ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜–๐Ÿ’› . It has been rough, but we are getting there.There's blood, excruciating pain, and so many tears, but I'd do it all over again for her. If it hadn't worked out, she would have been bottle fed too like Zoey was after 6 months, because feeding your baby shouldn't be anyone's business but yours and baby's!!! DO WHAT WORKS FOR YOU! *My incredible, comfortable and easy maternity hoodie is by @boobdesign *My delicious lactation treats and tea are by @mrspatels and THEY EVEN HAVE CHOCOLATE!

She's lettin' new mamas know that she feels their pain and that they are not alone.

Hey, representation matters! If all we ever see are images of blissful pregnancies and perfectly poised new moms, how are those of us who aren't feeling all that blissful and think that Poise is something you buy to help you with your newly acquired bladder leaking issue supposed to feel?

Kudos to Vorderstrasse for sharing the good, the bad and the ugly sides of pregnancy, but most of all for making us laugh at the truth of it all.


And somehow managed to make me cry! I'M LIKE GO AWAY. NO, STAY! HUG ME. NO, DON'T TOUCH ME! UGH!!!!! . Hormones made me cry because: I couldn't find the remote I made an ugly pancake I was scared Tim's car would fall into a lake (WHAT THE ?) I didn't want to be alone I wanted to be alone I thought my baby was so pretty I wanted my mom I wanted to go to an all you can eat buffet, but couldn't WHAT HAS MADE YOU CRY POSTPARTUM?! . My perfectly comfortable nursing bra is from @bravadodesigns My incredible postpartum leggings are from @baobeimaternity

Postpartum hormones are no joke, but that doesnโ€™t mean that you canโ€™t joke about them.
