Chrissy Teigen has recently given her followers a close look at her journey with in-vitro fertilization (IVF).
On Tuesday, the 36-year-old shared a video to her Instagram Story in which she documented the process of giving herself an IVF injection.
Detailing her journey, she wrote, “No it doesn’t hurt. The other shot burns a bit (ok a lot). They say to pinch the skin but I feel like that makes it burn more. But listen to your doc lol.”
Last week, Teigen revealed on social media that she had begun IVF treatments after she had a pregnancy loss of her third child, son Jack, in September 2020.
In the post, she showed a series of IVF injectables, captioning, “Here we go again.”
Teigen confirmed in the post that she is undergoing IVF once again. She wrote, “hiiii. I posted about it in my stories, but 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,” she continued. “So 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,” the model added, before promising her fans that should she get pregnant, she will “be the one to tell you.”
In September 2020, Teigen announced that she lost her son Jack following hospitalization for excessive bleeding due to a “weak placenta.”
Teigen had previously become pregnant with him naturally. However, she and her husband John Legend conceived their other two children Luna Simone, 5, and Miles Theodore, 3 with the help of IVF treatments.
