Parenting |

Maya wanted to show others how pregnancy truly is.

Bringing a child into the world is one of the most beautifully natural things that women can do. Carrying a child brings a joy that can only be understood through experience. But, I assure you, it is certainly not all butterflies and rainbows. The raging hormones make for an interesting test of your partner's patience. The constant hunger adds a strain to your grocery bill. The muscle cramps, bellyaches, and your constantly changing body can lead to frustration and an overwhelming amount of emotions. Maya Vorderstrasse is showing the dark side of pregnancy with her series of hilariously true photos depicting her struggles as a pregnant mom.

During her second pregnancy, Maya began posting the not so perfect parts of pregnancy on a letter board. "I started because I just couldn’t fit into the whole motherhood is so easy/my baby sleeps well/being pregnant is blissful scene," said Maya.
