Pregnancy is a journey which comes with its own sets of ups and downs, especially for a woman. Recently, model and actor Teejay Sidhu shared a hilarious yet significant post on what’s it like to be pregnant, adding how a few changes have become a constant at her “30-something weeks” pregnancy.
Take a look at her Instagram post below:
The Santoshi Maa actor, who is in her last trimester of pregnancy, mentioned how even “little things” feel like a task alongside a photograph of an upside-down turtle.
“My life these days! Help! This is what pregnancy feels like at 30-something weeks! Little things like getting out of bed, getting up from a chair, tying your shoes all become a luxury,” shared 40-year-old Sidhu, who is already a mother to twins Bella and Vienna, with actor Karanvir Bohra.
“A little longer to go so I will have to manage. I keep telling myself I’m not the only one going through this, makes me feel a little bit better,” added Sidhu, who is in Canada for her delivery.
The third trimester lasts from week 27 to the end of the pregnancy. During this phase, a woman may experience more aches, pain, and swelling as she carries around her baby.
