Singer and designer Jessica Simpson is no stranger to sharing all parts of her life with her fans on social media.

And over the last seven months, she’s been sharing the real-life ups and downs of being pregnant.

As Dearly previously reported, Simpson has discussed her swollen feet, her sciatica pain, the anxiety she’s been dealing with, and even warning other pregnant moms what could happen when you lean back while using the toilet.

Now, Simpson is discussing her battle with bronchitis.

As she wrote on Instagram, this isn’t the first time during this particular pregnancy that she’s dealt with bronchitis. In fact, it’s her fourth time.

However, this time it landed her in the hospital for a week.

She wrote, in part:

After a week in the hospital for bronchitis (my fourth time in 2 months), I’m finally home!

The 38-year-old soon-to-be mom of three has yet to reveal her due date. Simpson went on to reveal that coughing as a result of her bronchitis has been painful while pregnant with her unborn daughter.

She continued:

Coughing with Birdie has been a crazy painful journey. I am slowly getting healthier every day.

Simpson and her husband, Eric Johnson, plan to name their second daughter, Birdie. She said their daughter is doing great:

Baby girl was monitored and is doing amazing! I am on my way to healthy and counting down the days to see her sweet smile. Sending love and prayers to all the mothers who are going or have gone through this. OUCH

And her fans sent her that love and prayers right back:

Fellow celebrities, like the wife of former Olympian Ryan Lochte, shared in Simpson’s pain. Kayla Reid wrote:

Ugh I had it too this pregnancy! Hope you feel better!

And friends January Jones and Busy Philipps added, respectively:

You are a trooper!!!

Oh no. Feel better!

Simpson announced her pregnancy back in September.
