Challenges During The Pregnancy
While Tisdale had expressed excitement over, her pregnancy was not without challenges. Like many people, Tisdale had reported struggling with her changing body image during her pregnancy.
She shared on her website Freshne how her body looks different was a strange feeling for her. The continued assumptions over her pregnancy and whether or not she was having twins were also something that she found invasive though she “brushed it off.”
Additionally, the actor also suffered from a painful condition while pregnant. Tisdale shared on Instagram what she considers one of her most painful experiences with plantar fasciitis.
“It’s like your arches start to collapse because of how much weight is on my body. I think she’s seven pounds right now, and I’ve never carried that around before.“Today” quotes Tisdale said.
