Kourtney Kardashian has opened up about what heading back to work while going through postpartum looked like for her.

The Lemme founder, 44, is a few months into the postpartum stage, often dubbed the "fourth trimester," after welcoming her fourth child, son Rocky Thirteen, her first with husband Travis Barker, in late October.

Since before welcoming baby Rocky, the reality star has long been candid about the ins and outs of her fertility journey, pregnancy, and her health, and her latest candid insight is no exception.

Over the weekend, Kourtney took to Instagram and shared some behind the scenes photos from her time on set shooting promo shots for the upcoming season of The Kardashians on Hulu, and got candid about "not feeling quite ready" to be back in front of the camera.

 "BTS shooting all the promos for our @kardashianshulu billboards n' stuff for season 5!" she wrote, before admitting: "I was three months postpartum and not feeling quite ready for a big shoot like this where there's lots and lots of people watching me all day."

She noted: "Even though my baby boy was with me all day on set it's not the same when I'm covered in makeup, in high heels and wearing a dress versus our snuggly days at home in pajamas."

Nonetheless, she then shared: "But something I've been doing lately is shifting my mind set and thinking of the positives!"

Major kudos to her," plus another fan added: "You are always so honest and in touch with your emotions. Keep glowing and loving yourself!"
