And the great thing about it is, rather than cursing the idiotic humans ripping on a pregnant lady (like I would’ve), she mostly uses the post to uplift her fellow expecting moms of the world. One choice quote, “I say let’s raise a Shirley Temple to swollen feet, stretch marks, nausea, all the extra pounds and the dark circles! They’re badges of motherhood.
