However, Fath’s subsequent post thanked fans for their compliments on her photo and revealed the truth that the first few months of her pregnancy has been pretty rough. “Got a lot of compliments on my bump picture (thank you) that I felt the need to share some realness,” she wrote. “Even though I’m feeling better now at 16 weeks, pregnancy actually makes me feel quite horrible and I am not a fan of it. I am not glowing. My skin is a wreck. I’m suffering from migraines for the first time in my life and with this 110-degree heat, I often get lightheaded and feel faint. The nausea has subsided, so that I am grateful for. Here is a little taste of my first trimester.

“First pic is from April 27th in a DAYS dressing room,” she said of the series of photos she shared. “ I know I’m pregnant but morning sickness has not fully struck yet and I am still skinny. Next is another dressing room shot taking on May 10th. Feeling gray in the face this day and requested a looser fitting sweater because the bloat had set in. Pic #3 was my dinner for many nights. Protein was not welcome. By the time I wrapped and came home my nails had grown out a lot and I couldn’t leave my couch so I ordered my own drill and acetone off Amazon and attempted to just remove the full set myself. I did the best I could with only a few cuts along the way. And yes, I lived in motion sickness wrist bands for a month. Lastly — and it’s something I’m still battling with — hormonal acne. My face is a hot mess. Makeup takes a little longer these days as I’m essentially spackling as opposed to applying.”

Got a lot of compliments on my bump picture (thank you❤️) that I felt the need to share some realness. Even though I’m feeling better now at 16 weeks, pregnancy actually makes me feel quite horrible and I am not a fan of it. I am not glowing. My skin is a wreck. I’m suffering from migraines for the first time in my life and with this 110 degree heat, I often get light headed and feel faint. The nausea has subsided so that I am grateful for. Here is a little taste of my first trimester. First pic is from April 27th in a #daysofourlives dressing room. I know I’m pregnant but morning sickness has not fully struck yet and I am still skinny. Next is another dressing room shot taken on May 10th. Feeling gray in the face this day and requested a looser fitting sweater bc the bloat had set in. Pic #3 was my dinner for many nights. Protein was not welcome 🤢.

I did the best I could with only a few cuts along the way… and yes, I lived in motion sickness wrist bands for a month. Lastly, and it’s something I’m still battling with. Hormonal acne. My face is a hot mess. Makeup takes a little longer these days as I’m essentially spackling as opposed to applying. I also made a few videos that I had planned on posting closer to my first air date. Which is sometime in October. But maybe I’ll try n get around to that sooner ❤️ #pregnancy

Hopefully the remainder of Fath’s pregnancy is a lot smoother, and we’re sure once she and her hubby are happily holding their little boy or girl in their arms at the end of the year, all of this will be well worth the effort! We look forward to seeing pics of the baby as soon as he or she joins us!
