Chrissy Teigen recently broke her silence on the various emotions she has felt since she and husband, John Legend lost their 20-week old baby, Jack.
The cookbook author and mother of two shared the heartbreaking piece she wrote on Medium. In the post, she detailed all of the events leading to the loss of her third child and all the emotions that came with it.
Chrissy Teigen revealed that she was diagnosed with Placenta Abruption. The fluid around Jack was too low to sustain him, making his chance of survival in her womb very slim.
She disclosed that she bled throughout the pregnancy, though sometimes in a small amount. However, it was consistent and she had to be placed on bed rest for a month.
In her piece, Chrissy Teigen stated that it got to a point that the amniotic fluid became so low that she could feel Jack’s arm and legs from outside her body and after struggling with this for a while, she had to agree with the doctors that it was time to let go.
