As an expectant mother, navigating a changing body can be difficult, a reality Stassi Schroeder is coming to realize.
On Saturday, the former Vanderpump Rules star was looking for answers as she asked her Instagram followers to ‘Dm’ her with pregnancy-related information.
Sharing that her ‘baby feels lower,’ and adding that she can ‘breathe better today,’ the 32-year-old looked to her fans for medical advice.
Seeking answers: Stassi Schroeder, 32, is looking for answers as she asked her social media followers to Dm her after sharing that her ‘baby feels lower’ at 33 weeks pregnant
At 33-weeks pregnant, Stassi is due to give birth sometime in the next two months and is seemingly unsure of what her newfound bodily changes mean.
Sharing a bathroom selfie in sweats and a hoodie, Stassi showed off her growing bump from the side.
‘Baby feels lower and I can breathe better today. What does this mean. Dm me,’ she wrote on the photo.
Posting just days earlier that she couldn’t breathe while saying, ‘I feel like my stomach is actually going to explode,’ Schroeder is undoubtedly at the mercy of her body.
‘Pop me’: Sharing days earlier that she couldn’t breathe and felt like her stomach was ‘going to explode,’ Stassi was confused by the fluctuating symptoms
Shortness of breath is a common symptom for women at Stassi’s stage in pregnancy, a pivotal time in the baby’s development.
Between 32 and 38 weeks the baby starts to settle head down in the pelvis in preparation for birth, according to What To Expect.
Later in the day Stassi shared the results of her findings as she wrote, ‘Everyone is saying baby is getting into position.’
Capricorn: Stassi shared that everyone confirmed the baby was getting into position as she said she needed her to ‘stay in’ because she wants a Capricorn baby
She continued, ‘Need her to stay in because I was seriously looking forward to birthing a Capricorn. Lol,’ referring to her astrological sign.
Capricorns have a birth date between December 21st and January 21st and are typically defined in trait as ambitious and goal-oriented.
On Thursday Stassi and her husband Beau Clark took a wildly exciting trip to Target to go shopping for the first time ‘in over nine months.’
With Beau documenting the whole thing on social media, Stassi said, ‘I don’t care if I don’t have an income right now. I’m gonna spend so much money, you have no idea.’

No income: After getting fired from Vanderpump Rules and having her podcast Straight Up With Stassi dropped from all streaming platforms, the expecting mom is having to be mindful of her finances
After former Vanderpump Rules co-star Faith Stowers reported that Stassi and castmate Kristen Doute reported her to the police in 2018 for a crime she didn’t commit, Bravo swiftly took action firing both ladies from the hit series.
With more racially insensitive footage from Stassi’s podcast, Straight Up With Stassi, coming to light and past controversial posts where she referred to an outfit as ‘Nazi chic,’ Schroeder’s podcast was subsequently removed from all streaming platforms.
With a new baby on the way and no known distinct career path – despite being a best selling author – a now disgraced Schroeder is feeling the brunt of her past mistakes both emotionally and financially.
Glamour shot: Despite not having a career at the moment, Stassi took expensive looking pregnancy portraits to document her journey to motherhood
Recently she got together with Vanderpump castmates Brittany Cartwright and Lala Kent – who are both pregnant as well – to discuss motherhood and their changing bodies on Kent’s podcast ‘Give Them Lala With Randall.’
The ladies discussed their pregnancy symptoms and discussed ‘bump shaming,’ as well as how their men have changed throughout the process.
‘My favorite part about being pregnant is seeing your significant other talk about the future and talk about what the baby’s gonna be like and how they’re gonna parent. I can’t imagine when she actually gets here watching him with her,’ she said.
Posting a series of expensive looking pregnancy portraits this week, Stassi joked ‘Was gonna post a photo of me and Beau but then I thought, nahhh I’m the one carrying this baby.’
