“I’m all about keeping it real: you see the best moments on instagram.”
She continued: “You see when we’re feeling our best.
“The recovery was so intense in the beginning. The hospital was an actual nightmare (not because of the hospital but just events that transpired) and I’m so thankful for all the help we got.”
Tori went on: “Everyone kept telling my after the fact how hard c section #3 is… they’re right. I don’t remember pain like that!
“My pain was so bad the first night home we almost called 911.”
Her message concluded: “Luckily I was able to get on track with medication after that.”

“Thank goodness. But it hasn’t been easy!”
The mom of three urged followers: “Don’t compare yourself to instagram.”
She added: “Thankfully Josiah is the actual easiest baby. He’s been so chill and calm through everything we’ve gone through in the last week.
“The lord knows just what you need. Always.”
Tori’s candid confession comes after she shared sweet snaps with all three of her children in celebration of Mother’s Day.
The new family photos come just one week after she gave birth to her youngest child.
The first of two photos appeared to be taken in a field of grass while the other was shot in a tulip field.
In both photos, the TLC star and her kids were all smiles.
Tori, for her part, shared a lengthy caption about motherhood.
She wrote: “Thank you for making me a mama.
“A perfect morning spent driving around sipping coffee and enjoying the over cast weather instead of rain.
“To all mamas past present and future: happy Mother’s Day!”
Over the weekend, the elementary school teacher shared several new photos of her newborn son.
On her Instagram Story, the star posted a pic of the newborn laying in a baby seat.
The little one appeared to have a stuffed animal placed near his face from his older siblings.
“When the sibs set you up,” Tori captioned the snap.
On her feed, the mom of three posted a new photo of her baby boy seemingly sleeping.
In the photo, Josiah is seen wearing a brown cap.
The LPBW star captioned the post: “One week lovin’ you.
“One week of snuggles… One week hand holding and binky finding.”
The proud mom went on: “It’s like you were always meant to be here Josiah.”
Not long prior, Tori shared video of her son on social media prompting fans to compare the infant to his parents while trying to figure out which he resembled more.
Josiah had his eyes closed while wearing an adorable onesie and white beanie on his head.
The baby boy slept on his swing chair with his tiny hands folded.
She captioned the post: “These are some good times. So take a good look.”
Fans ran to the comments section as they noted the uncanny resemblance to the father of three, Zach Roloff, 31, and his newborn son.
One fan said: “Zach’s twin! Congrats! He’s perfect!” while another mentioned: “He looks like Zach.”
Tori and Zach announced the birth of Josiah on social media.
In the sweet snapshot, Josiah was bundled up in a white wrap and had on a tiny matching beanie on top of his head.
Tori wrote: “Welcome to the world, sweet Josiah Luke! April 30th, 2022. 9:02 am. 7 lbs 6oz. 19 1/2 inches long.
“You surprised us all by coming early, but also the wait felt like a lifetime!”
She concluded: “Best birthday present ever!”
