This Mom Has Found A Creative Yet Hilarious Way To Track Pregnancy With Letter Board Messages

In the age of the internet, we have seen many creative people showing their skills and ideas. Social media has proved to be very beneficial to everyone, and especially – expecting or new mothers. There are many experienced parents who take to social media to share their bits of knowledge, advice, and what they have learned from their experience.

However, along with that, there are also mothers who tend to be very creative when tracking their pregnancy. While some would post pictures of their baby bump growing bigger in size and some would even paint on their baby bump – this mother of two, Maya Vorderstrasse, has decided to show how she is feeling at particular points of her pregnancy. More specifically, she has decided to make her feelings clear through letter boards.

She shared the pictures on her Instagram profile and oftentimes her partner’s as well, where she poses alongside a letter board that has her thoughts written down. While she was pregnant with her newborn, Hazel, she wrote down anything, including her swollen feed or even food cravings.

The creative mother spoke to HuffPost about her idea, admitting she was ‘tired of seeing motherhood portrayed as perfect, flawless, and effortless”, claiming she never felt like pregnancy was that for her. She said:

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 also has a daughter named Zoey as well as her newborn Hazel. After birth, she also includes topics such as breastfeeding when she poses alongside the letter board.

She seems to look at things from a very optimistic point of view, saying:

I just try to translate my symptoms into words, but in my brain everything comes together in a funny way, because I’d rather laugh at my own misery than cry about it.
