Schroeder Has Shared Her Difficulties With Pregnancy
Shortly after Schroeder shared photos of her daughter with the world, she took to her Instagram story to share some of her difficulties. She posted a video of her newborn laying on her stomach. “Tummy time- one of the things that makes me cry,” she wrote. “I can’t stand to see her struggle.”
She continued writing, “Other things that make me cry: putting her to sleep in her crib because I can’t stand being separated & watching the baby monitor because she’s so cute and I miss her.
Towards the end of her pregnancy, Schroeder posted a photo of her crying, in late December. Schroeder wrote a paragraph explaining some of her pregnancy difficulties. The 32-year-old reality star wrote, “Real talk- pregnancy is hard. I don’t feel like myself. I don’t feel attractive. I feel like I’m only good for making a baby.”
She continued writing, “I feel like I have zero control over anything. I’m uncomfortable and it’s painful to move around And my emotions are so all over the place, I feel insane. I’ve received lots of dm’s from people telling me I complain too much and should shut up and just be thankful I’m pregnant.”
Schroeder added that she’s thankful to be a mother, but nothing is perfect. “I’ve never been more thankful for anything,” she wrote. “Being a mother was my biggest dream and I can’t wait to meet my daughter. But I’m still allowed to struggle with it. Why is there so much pressure on pregnant women to be super heroes? Can we stop that now?”
