Chrissy Teigen recently announced she is undergoing IVF again, a little over a year after she suffered a pregnancy loss.
The news comes a bit more than a year after Chrissy Teigen and Husband John Legend experienced a pregnancy loss at 20 weeks with their son Jack.
In an Instagram post, Teigen shared a photo of her stretching with the following caption: “I wanted to let you guys know I’m balls deep in another IVF cycle to save as many eggos as I possibly can and hopefully make some strong, healthy embryos. I honestly don’t mind the shots…they make me feel like a doctor/chemist…but the bloating is a bitch.”
Chrissy Teigen also made a plea with her fans and anyone reading: I humbly beg you to stop asking if I’m pregnant because while I know it’s said with excited, good intentions, it just kind of sucks to hear because I am the opposite of pregnant! But also like please stop asking people, anyone, if they’re pregnant,” she wrote in the caption. “I said this in the comments and got yelled at because the internet is wild but I’d rather be the one to tell you and not some poor woman who will look you in the eyes through tears and that’s how you finally learn”.
Chrissy Teigen’s fans have made it very clear they appreciate her stance on asking people if they are pregnant, one user writing “I don’t care if a person’s stomach is out as far as their arm, you never ask a woman if she is pregnant.”
Chrissy Teigen has always been very open regarding her IVF journey, her two other children, Luna and Miles were both conceived through IVF. Recently she shared on Instagram her injecting her IVF medication that is usually given to individuals for egg retrievals.
Chrissy Teigen has allowed herself to be vulnerable and posted about her IVF journey and her journey of grief losing her baby. Chrissy Teigen has done a wonderful job of creating a safe and comforting space for other people who are going through a similar situation to know they are not alone and that many other people are going through a very similar situation.
We applaud Chrissy Teigen for her bravery and for sharing her journey and we hope for the best for Chrissy and her family!
