Grimes attends the world premiere of "Captain Marvel" in Hollywood, Calif. on March 4, 2019.

Earlier this month, Grimes revealed she is expecting her first child. But pregnancy can be really hard, and on Friday (Jan. 31), the songstress reached out to all the moms out there for some advice.

"Wow I’m starting to feel bad haha... how do y’all cope with working and having a baby?? I’m sorry I haven’t been promoting my album properly or on social media more," she wrote alongside a selfie. "This whole thing has been a bit of an ordeal."

She went on to note that she had some "complications" in her pregnancy early on, and is starting to "hurt everywhere" at 25 weeks along. "What were yalls experience w this stuff like?" she asked. "I feel like I was woefully ill prepared cuz I dunno if pregnancy is as visible or discussed as it should be. I just didn’t rly understand what I was getting into. It’s been good too, but it makes working a lot harder."

"Good at writing and having lots of wild ideas tho, but anything physical is hard. Im also way more emo and less capable of bravery in the face of haters online and stuff haha. But my albums out in a sec so I prob need to get back on here," she concluded.

Grimes has yet confirm who the father of her baby is, though she has been most recently romantically linked to Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk.
