Aww, we’re sorry to hear this!
Speaking with TODAY, The Hills alum confessed:
“Obviously, hate is a strong word and really polarizing. I got some backlash from my mom, who is very sensitive to how I’m dealing with my pregnancy, and it upset her.”
The 32-year-old and husband Tim Rosenman are actually documenting the entire pregnancy in a YouTube series appropriately called “I Love My Baby, But I Hate My Pregnancy.”
“But I am very candid and honest about the fact that the pregnancy, both physically and emotionally, has not been an easy process for me. Dealing with the extra hormones and being very sensitive to everything and feeling outside pressures. And physically, with my changing body, not having control over that… morning sickness, exhaustion, aversion to food, broken blood vessels, bloody noses. All of these things that are not very fun.”
They definitely don’t sound fun!
“(I always thought) pregnancy was this exciting, beautiful, wonderful, magical thing, until I experienced my own, and it wasn’t all of that. I was feeling all these negative feelings. I thought, ‘What’s wrong with me?’ Why aren’t I more excited? Why aren’t I owning this?”
The YouTube series has helped by showing Whitney that there are other women out there who are also having a tough time with their pregnancies. Whitney will often even respond to their comments, thanking them for sharing.
“I think it’s so awesome. We’re all kind of around the same age and at similar points in our lives, so I think it’s to be expected. And it’s really exciting.”
As for whether she’ll film the labor for her pregnancy vlog, she said:
“Those moments are a bit more private. But you go into labor for quite some time. If I’m feeling up for it, I could see filming the labor in moments where maybe the contractions aren’t so bad. We haven’t planned that far!”
