As she awaits the birth of her third babyTeddi Mellencamp Arroyave is getting honest about the ups and downs of pregnancy. After getting flooded with comments from fans complimenting her skin and general pregnancy glow, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills mom posted a bare-faced selfie to debunk what she calls “a sea of Insta-reality.”

“I’m getting so many messages from women who are commenting on how much energy I have, how my skin is glowing, and how upbeat I seem, all while comparing their own pregnancy to mine,” she wrote.

The fitness coach decided to post the close-up, no make-up photo to show that no pregnancy is perfect — including hers. Alongside the image, Teddi shared some of the realities of the pregnancy symptoms she’s currently dealing with.“So let’s get real: my energy is up and down (and when it’s down, it’s DOWN), my laughter isn’t consistent (who hasn’t cried over a Biggest Loser promo), and the Insta “Subtle” filter does wonders (so does profesh makeup),” she detailed in the caption.

With Instagram often presenting a rosier version of reality, Teddi also stated she wants to prevent unrealistic comparisons to her pregnancy journey. “I wanted to be clear while showing you my skin isn’t,” she concluded in the thoughtful message. “Because comparison is a sure way to steal your own happiness.”

We couldn’t agree more —keep keepin’ it real, Teddi!
