Jessica Simpson reveals she’s experiencing a variety of health problems during her third pregnancy

She’s keeping her spirits up, however.

Jessica Simpson doesn’t have too long more to go in her pregnancy and as most mums can empathise with, the third trimester can be tough.

The 38-year-old actress is pregnant with her third child and judging from her Instagram posts, it’s been a bit of a tough one.

Most recently, poor Jessica has been suffering from sciatica, bronchitis, anxiety and insomnia.

On Sunday, she posted a picture all wrapped up and ready for a walk, captioned:

“After a month of sciatica pain, followed by 3 weeks of Bronchitis, I figured since my feet fit in my sneaks today. I needed to walk out a lot of anxiety!!”

Following that, she posted a picture yesterday going for a walk, this time in a bid to “fight insomnia”.

Last month The Dukes of Hazzard star shared a picture of her severely swollen feet, asking people for their advice and after trying cupping, found some relief.

Jessica and her husband, Eric Johnson, are already parents to 5-year-old Ace Knute and Maxwell Drew, 6. Judging from some hints at their recent baby shower, the unborn baby is likely to be called Birdie.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight back in October she chatted about pregnancy cravings and embracing the change in her body:

“I crave everything!” she admitted. “It’s like, with a girl, I just want, like, Pop-Tarts and cinnamon rolls and cinnamon gummy bears and sour cherries. Bring it on!”

“I kind of just, like, go with it. I go with the waddle. Immediately when I found out I was pregnant, I was like, stick the stomach out, pop the hips out and waddle. Just own the waddle.”

We love it!
