Chrissy Teigen revealed that she was hospitalized Sunday evening after suffering bleeding for the past month during her pregnancy.
The 34-year-old mother of two, who is expecting her third child — a boy — shared a series of posts to her Instagram story as she lay in bed at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, wearing only a white towel.
“We all know I’ve been on bed rest for a few weeks and that’s like super serious bed rest,” Teigen said. “I get up too quickly pee and that’s it, I take baths twice a week, no showering, just as little as possible.”
“But I was always, always bleeding,” she continued. “I’m about halfway through pregnancy and the blood has been going on for about a month, maybe a little bit less than a month. We’re talking like more than your period, girls, it’s definitely not spotting. A lot of people spot but it’s usually fine. Mine was a lot.”
Thankfully, her growing baby is doing well, she explained, but “in the simplest of terms, we can say my placenta is really, really weak.”
The “Cravings” author shares two children Luna, 4, and Miles, 2, with husband John Legend, 41.
“So I feel really good and the baby is so healthy, growing stronger than Luna or Miles,” Teigen said. “He moves so much, so much earlier than they ever did. … I’m so excited for him, he’s the strongest little dude. … He’s the strongest, coolest dude in the sh—iest house.”
“So his house is like falling apart,” she went on. “It didn’t have a good foundation to begin with, he didn’t have the strongest chance at the very, very beginning, so all we’re doing now is trying to make sure he has a lot of fluid around him and I’m resting obviously as much as possible.”
She then urged her followers, even those who are doctors, not to diagnose her over social media.
“If you are a doctor, I cannot express enough how badly I would like you to stop your guessing games or even diagnosing me via Twitter,” Teigen said. “I have very good doctors who know the entire story. I share a lot but not absolutely everything.”
