After posting a positive pregnancy test result on Instagram on Jan. 6, Jessie J pivoted to share a more raw look at her first trimester, which included many uncomfortable symptoms. I can’t even explain to you how bad it is,” she shared in a recent Instagram video.
The first semester can be overwhelming for many. Despite being called “morning sickness,” nausea during pregnancy can strike at any time of the day or night, and often begins one month into her pregnancy, according to the Mayo Clinic. Other symptoms include fatigue, heartburn, constipation, increased urination, breast pain and, of course, food cravings. This may explain why Jessie J “likes to eat chocolate-covered pickles without asking any questions.”
This isn’t the first time the singer has been transparent about her fertility experiences. In her latest video, fans used the comments section to validate her many green face emojis (🤢).
“Unpopular opinion, but I didn’t enjoy my pregnancy at all,” said one commenter. The person continued, “My little boy was my IVF miracle before the hate came for me, so it’s already been a rough road to conception.
However, not all commenters are created equal. On Sunday, the singer called out the negative behavior she had witnessed online. “It’s very interesting,” Jessie began her now-expired Instagram story to People. method will be dealt with.”
“Telling someone how they feel or what they should feel is not the way to do it. We also talk about how people comment on each other.
The Mayo Clinic confirms that while the first trimester is almost invisible, it is a transformative experience taking place within a pregnant person and can be emotionally uplifting for several reasons. Along with the influx of hormones and natural mood swings, emotional stress is normal for a new baby no matter how excited you are about your pregnancy. You don’t need strangers on the internet telling you what to do or how to feel. “Every body is different. Literally. And every story and journey is different,” Jessie J continued on her Instagram story.
Whether you’re a British pop star or just sharing a harmless Instagram post for family and friends, Jessie J says everyone deserves respect for their experience. She said, “Pregnancy is not a competition. Pregnancy is not about who is doing it better or doing it right, because one way does not work for everyone.”
