  1. omg I've been having this shooting pain in my back whenever I walk to the point that I've been limping these few days. I thought I've pulled a muscle doing yoga or exercising or something, but it's just like you described it. so I googled sciatica pain & yup I have all the symptoms. I know this is an old video but thank you so much! I'm 23 weeks preggo & yeah I get the identity issue thing completely.

  2. OMG I used to watch you as a teenager and finally found you again!! I can't believe you had a baby!!

  3. So true! People just focus on you having a baby as if there’s not a million and one other things going on inside and it really does not help the identity thing. You’re totally right on about not just being a Mum – still have goals and ambitions and dreams and things!

  4. Thank you so much for this video! I’ve sent it to a few people. Exactly how I’ve been feeling through my pregnancy. I’m 13weeks. And counting down till this is over.

  5. YES THE IDENTITY AND PRE DEPRESSION YES!!!!!!!!!!! NO ONE talks about this and i am absolutely going through that right now. it's like when youre pregnant you arent allowed to talk negatively about it. its considered so taboo. so glad you mentioned this

  6. Thank you so much for your honesty. I also struggled with body image issues and I tried hard to lose a bit more weight before I got pregnant but I didn’t get off as much as I would have liked. I’m now 15 weeks and trying to be consistent with my workouts and eating healthy, but it is hard when you’re thinking about the changes that your body will go through (like you said, not the bump, that’s welcomed) but the arm, leg, and back fat! So I hear you and I just appreciate you encouraging women like me! Being pregnant is a true blessing AND it can be hard! Both are true! Xoxo

  7. I feel ya. Being a "mom" is defined as one of the major women roles, but nevertheless if shouldn't destroy your personality and identity. You're not JUST a mom: you are yourself. :3
    Thank you for putting this out there!

  8. Omg thank you. This has been so helpful — I’m holding on to every word you are saying. I’ve definitely having depression and feel lost during pregnancy, not meaning that I’m unhappy to be pregnant, and you’ve said it all so clearly. Thank you for your purity and honesty which is so refreshing! You are so real and cherished more than you know. Thank you.

  9. Thank you so much for this video! I can resonate with almost 100% of what you are saying. You are being so honest and i appreciate it so much right now. 20 weeks pregnant, excited for baby… not loving pregnancy. Having a hard time with body image at the moment. You are such insp.

  10. yes to all of this! I'm so happy to be pregnant and grateful but it's hard on my body 🙁 and people mistake it for not being happy.

  11. I'm braiding my hair while watching a marathon of your chatty videos Samie xx It's almost midnight but I'm depressed

  12. My best friend had her baby 8 months ago and she hates that people forget that she is not just a mom. I'm happy you are talking about these things.

  13. Omg just found this into my second trimester & I love everything you had to say! Thank you for addressing some of the taboos and things that are so isolating during pregnancy. I really thought I was alone in feeling some of those things as well! Great video 💕

  14. I'm pregnant for 8 weeks and I'm having my morning sickness. it's horrible, I can't eat properly, work or do anything at all. If I eat something I'll just throw it up hours later. ughhh I hate it

  15. Great video Samantha, it's like you're taking the thoughts right out of my head!
    I am currently 30 weeks pregnant and like you haven't spent much time around other pregnant people before and was not too sure what to expect – as we all know, there is A LOT that people don't tell you for some reason!
    It has been so reassuring for me to hear these things from a like minded person.
    Also really loving your recent vlogs with beautiful Indie!
    You are so honest and lovely and your videos are making me feel great, so thank you 🙂

  16. Hi Sam please help! I'm 35 weeks pregnant and don't know what size belly bandit to get? What size did you get please? Thanks xx

  17. I am so happy to see that you made this video. I am 7.5 months into my second pregnancy and I am one of those people that just doesn't love being pregnant. Basically, everything you touched on is exactly how I feel. So, good on you for putting yourself out there for other first time mom's or even mom's that have been through it multiple times. I love the outcome of being pregnant and am incredibly grateful that I have been able to have healthy and fairly uneventful pregnancies, but it's definitely not been my favorite life experience. You are not alone. And thanks again for being someone with a louder voice that's saying you don't have to love it.

  18. just found out i am pregnant recently and i am so glad i found your videos! no one is talking about this things you have in this video and I'm so grateful! thank you for sharing <3 for real girl! thank you

  19. Thank you so much for making this video Sam! I have gone through all of this too and it's awful thinking you are alone in these feelings, thankyou for making me feel like I'm not alone 😘

  20. Thank you for your honesty. It's hard to find people who are willing to tell it how it is even if we don't all share the same symptoms.
