Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi Gets Real About Postpartum Symptoms After Baby No. 3: Cramping, Swollen Feet and More

Oh, boy! Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is opening up about her postpartum symptoms following the birth of her third child, Angelo, on Thursday, May 30.

“The aftermath of birth,” the Jersey Shore: Family Vacation star, 31, said on her Instagram Story that same day. “You definitely need these guys. Hazel pads for your butthole. Here’s my underwears, my pads, my squirt bottle. Pray for me.”

The reality star went on to share a picture of the view from her hospital bed. “My feet are swollen, I’m wearing a diaper, my son just peed and s–t on me twice and my sciatica is acting up,” she wrote. “Hello postpartum.”

Polizzi added: “No one warned me about the third pregnant postpartum cramping. Like am I still in active labor? S–t!”

The Tattoo Too Far host and her husband, Jionni LaValle, announced in November 2018 that their third child was on the way. The pair, who tied the knot in 2014, already share Giovanna, 4, and Lorenzo, 6.

“What I’m thankful for this Thanksgiving,” the A Shore Thing author captioned pictures of her two little ones holding a sonogram at the time.

She opened up about her pregnancy earlier this month. “I’ve been feeling cramps and I swear the baby’s coming out, and then I went [to the doctor’s] today and he said, like, ‘Another two weeks or so,’” Polizzi said on an episode of the “It’s Happening With Snooki and Joey” podcast. “I’m annoyed that I have to spend another couple weeks feeling this miserable. You have no idea.”

By Sunday, May 26, the New Jersey native was more than ready to give birth to Angelo. “Come out you little s–t,” Polizzi captioned a Boomerang video of her baby bump on her Instagram Story.
