After discussing her complicated pregnancy last week, Chrissy revealed on Sunday that she has been bleeding almost daily and had to undergo two blood transfusions on Monday.
She said on Instagram stories, ‘Hello from hospital. about to have my second blood transfusion which truly truly truly sounds more dramatic than it is.’
‘It’s an IV, but instead of fluids, the blood of some kind human being out there. Baby and I are completely fine, just missing the little things like walking…cooking…playing with the other buttbutts.’

The model had already been on strict bed rest this month but as she explained in a series of Instagram Stories on Sunday, her bleeding had worsened.
Chrissy begged her followers not to try and diagnose her over Twitter as she explained more about her condition.
‘We all know I’ve been on bed rest for a few weeks and that’s like super serious bed rest. I get up to pee and take baths twice a week, no showering, just as little as possible,’ Chrissy began.

‘But I was always, always bleeding. I’m about halfway through pregnancy and the blood has been going on for about a month, maybe a little bit less than a month.
‘We’re talking about more than your period girls, it’s definitely not spotting. A lot of people spot but it’s usually fine. Mine was a lot.’
‘Everytime I go to the bathroom it would be blood, and honestly just laying there there would be blood.’
Chrissy went on to explain that on Sunday her bleeding worsened comparing it to ‘like if you were to turn a faucet onto low and leave it there…It was at the point today where it was never stopping, the bleeding.’

She added that she was feeling great, telling her fans ‘it’s so weird because I feel really good. I’m usually at my happiest pregnant, mood wise. That’s why it’s so hard for me to come to terms with.’
Chrissy also beamed as she revealed her baby was doing well, explaining: ‘In the simplest of terms we can say my placenta is really, really weak, So I feel really good and the baby is so healthy, growing stronger than Luna or Miles.’
‘He moves so much, so much earlier than they ever did. I’m so excited for him, he’s the strongest little dude. He;’s the strongest coolest dude in the sh***iest house.’
‘So his house is like falling apart. It didn’t have a good foundation to begin with, he didn’t have the strongest chance at the very, very beginning so all we’re doing now is trying to make sure he has a lot of fluid around him and I’m resting as much as possible.’

‘It’s just hard because there’s not much we can do. I’m at that weird in between time where it’s dangerous to try anything. If me and baby boy can make it through the next few weeks then we can go from there and get through the danger zone.’
‘It is scary,’ Chrissy admitted, ‘but scary in the way that there is really nothing to do. I take my progesterone and my iron and we’re trying everything we can.’
She then pleaded with her fans and medical professionals online to let her doctors do the work, cautioning: ‘If you are a doctor I can not express enough how badly I would like you to stop your guessing games or even diagnosing me via twitter. I have very good doctors who know the entire story. I share a lot but not absolutely everything.’
‘So bored’: ‘I’m having a bored time — a bed time boredom photoshoot today. Just in bed,’ she said sleepily in her original post from home

Her visit to the maternity ward followed her announcement on Twitter on Thursday that she was ceasing all of her work temporarily after being diagnosed with a high-risk pregnancy.
‘Today I had to postpone the cookbook indefinitely and sent @AdeenaSussman alllll the way back to Tel Aviv and same with shutting down filming Chrissy’s Court. Baby cannot do it. I am devastated,’ she tweeted.
Chrissy previously said that her pregnancies with Luna, four, and Miles, two, were complicated after her placenta failed to nourish them properly, requiring her to be induced early both times.
