  • Jessica Simpson has been pretty candid about how her body has changed while she was pregnant with her third child, Birdie Mae Johnson.

  • Simpson struggled with many side effects during pregnancy, including swelling.

  • Three months postpartum, Simpson shared on Instagram that she can finally “spy” her ankles again.

Alongside Amy Schumer, no celeb has been more open about the “joy of postpartum” than Jessica Simpson. The 38-year-old singer and actress had her third child, Birdie Mae Johnson, about three months ago, and has taken to Instagram to give us pretty candid updates on her post-baby body.

One side effect Simpson really struggled with? Swollen ankles. Back in January, she posted a photo of her left ankle, which head nearly doubled in size compared to her traditionally petite ankles. Swollen feet-a result of all the extra blood and fluid the body is producing for the developing baby-is quite common during pregnancy, but can be difficult to deal with for many women.

Simpson asked her followers for some remedies to alleviate the swelling, and her next Instagram post mid-January was a shot of her trying cupping therapy, a treatment in which suction cups are placed on the skin to help reduce pain and inflammation while improving blood flow and promoting relaxation. The same day, Simpson posted an update, and her ankles looked significantly less swollen.

Yesterday, Simpson once again gave her followers another update on her pregnancy ankles-this time with no swelling in sight! “I spy....my ankles!!!!” she wrote in the caption.

In addition to swelling, Simpson went through a lot during her third pregnancy. She struggled with acid reflux, insomnia, and was even hospitalized at least four times with bronchitis. She called the journey “crazy painful”-but she seems happier than ever with her ever-growing family.
