Chrissy Teigen knows how to do pregnancy better than all y'all.
Mothers-to-be out there, I strongly suggest you take a page out of Chrissy Teigen's birthing book. The model and recent mom has become a social media icon over the past few years, largely because of her overwhelming reliability.
I mean, it also has a lot to do with the fact she's gorgeous, but I'd like to see Kendall Jenner come up with gold like this:
So it's no surprise Chrissy's pregnancy sounds like a pretty relatable pregnancy, sans her husband being one of the world's biggest singers and her baby already having a massive social media following while still living inside of her.
She recounted her entire birth story to Cosmopolitan, and I'm convinced this should be made mandatory reading for anyone even considering making a few children of their own.
She told Cosmo,
I went for a regular check up and my doctor's office was up these stairs so I was huffing and puffing. They take your blood pressure every time you go and mine was high so my doctor was like you need to go to the hospital right now. I got induced. It was crazy. I [did the natural thing] for like an hour because I wanted to know what it was like. Then I was like, OK! Got it, thanks!
The rest of the night seemed pretty nice actually... up until the part when she shoved a baby out of her body.
Yeah. Honestly, it was the life, laying in bed watching Bravo, not feeling a thing! But I find the most random things to be fun. John actually had a performance that night. He was like, 'I don't have to go,' but I said, 'Just do it. I'm gonna be sitting here eating popsicles for the next 24 hours. It's fine.' It was like a Mark Zuckerberg event or something a few blocks away. So he went. I was so hungry, but you can only have soup in case you have to go into surgery. So I texted John while he was performing and was like, 'Please bring me something!' He said all they have is rack of lamb. I was like, 'Bring it to me!' My doctors are gonna hate me but I was eating lamb chops, popsicles and watching Bravo. Then I woke up and they were like, it's time.
The refreshing part is as perfect as they seem, John and Chrissy have no idea what they're doing, just like everyone else with a newborn.
John and I didn't read any books or take any classes... I didn't want to get inside my own head and expect things that weren't gonna happen. Everyone has such a different story so we were like, let's just roll with the punches.
If Chrissy can do it, so can you, new moms!
