"And I have no idea why i still have this bump, honestly. It’s frustrating. But I’m proud of where this entire journey took my body and mind in other ways. I love being pregnant, so so much, and I’m sad I never will be again. But I am lucky to have two amazing little ones who are transforming into big little people more and more every single day."
Teigen also penned an open letter for Medium in which she detailed her pregnancy loss and how she's coping. She also used the article to say she will never apologize for sharing photos of her most emotional moments, including a pic of the exact moment she lost the baby.
