A beautiful mum on Instagram, Maya Vorderstrasse, documented the many changes her body went through during pregnancy with these cute and funny letterboard messages.

Vorderstrasse posts the funny images on her Instagram, sometimes featuring her husband, along with a letterboard that sums up her current thoughts. She posed with the letterboards during her pregnancy with Hazel, now only a few weeks old, covering all the usual pregnancy complaints – cravings, needing to pee, swollen feet…with the boards summing up how she felt that week.

She told HuffPost that she wanted to share these moments as a way of combating the picture perfect pregnancy mamas on Instagram that are continuously flawless, something that can’t be true to real life.

“Honestly I was so tired of seeing motherhood portrayed as perfect, flawless, and effortless on social media,” she said, “because I never felt like it was like that for me. So I embraced my chaotic life, and decided to share it with everyone in the hopes of helping other mothers realize that it’s OK to not have it all figured out.”

She looks pretty flawless to us! Here are a few of her posts to introduce you, then make sure to follow her on Instagram to see how things progress for their beautiful little family.
