She writes, specifically, about how her body’s changed during this pregnancy.
“This pregnancy has been a lot harder on me than the last,” Roloff begins the caption. “Don’t get me wrong-I’ve been so lucky… im not sick (anymore) and I haven’t had any complications (thank the lord). However I have had a harder time accepting my body this go around. I’ve gotten bigger a lot faster than I did with Jackson and I’ve become a lot more insecure.”
She goes on to talk about how people will ask her if she’s sure she’s not having twins. “For all our sakes-don’t ever ask a woman this question. Like ever,” she writes.
“It’s been hard to really enjoy this pregnancy because I’ve let my own body image issues get in the way,” said Roloff. “Us as women are so bada**. Like we can grow babies. And I know I need to give this up to God right and be thankful for this gift-and I’m trying trust me.”
She ends her post with words of encouragement for any of her followers who are struggling with the same issues.
“But for all those women out there-pregnant or not- you need to hear this just like I do: you’re beautiful, you’re strong, and dang it love yourself no matter what. I know someone besides just me needs to hear that today. So excuse me while I go try my best to live out these words and continue growing a freaking human being.”
