In February, Teigen, who announced she hit one year of sobriety last month, confirmed to her 37 million followers that she was going through the IVF process.
‘I humbly beg you to stop asking if I’m pregnant because I am the opposite of pregnant!’ she wrote on Instagram while in the process of trying to conceive again.
She continued: ‘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.’

The multihyphenate went on to express her frustration with the procedure as she noted, ‘I honestly don’t mind the shots…they make me feel like a doctor/chemist…but the bloating is a b**ch.’
She then made a plea to her fans, writing, ‘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!’
In September 2020 Chrissy and her husband John Legend tragically lost their third child, a baby boy, 20 weeks into her pregnancy.
Confirmed! Earlier this year, the cookbook author confirmed that she is indeed in the egg-retrieval process and asked that people stop asking if she’s pregnant
Chrissy shared the heartbreaking news with her Instagram followers shortly after the horrific experience, and posted photos of herself in the hospital mourning the loss of her child.
Not long afterwards, she revealed she would be unable to carry a child again.
‘I love being pregnant, so so much, and I’m sad I never will be again,’ she posted on Instagram.

Despite the loss, Chrissy expressed gratitude for her other two children, daughter Luna, five, and son Miles, three, whom were both conceived via IVF.
‘I’m so lucky for that,’ she told People last year. ‘I just think of it in terms of how blessed I am already, and also there are so many ways to have a child nowadays … whether it’s surrogacy or adoption.’
Elsewhere in the interview with the publication the model said, ‘Coming to terms with not being able to carry again is still really difficult for me because I feel so healthy. I’m like, why?
‘But then I think about it as my uterus is just not cooperating with me — and it’s not a failure.’
In keeping with Thai tradition, the hands-on parents planted a tree in their house to honor Jack.
Sad news: Last year the cookbook author revealed that she wouldn’t be able to have another natural pregnancy following the loss of her son Jack
‘It’s important for us in Thai tradition that we always embrace the ones we’ve lost, and they’re never, ever gone. This tree being planted inside the home, the whole reason why I wanted it was so Jack’s ashes could be in that soil and he could be with us all the time and grow through the beautiful leaves in this tree,’ she said.
‘The way Miles and Luna talk about him is so beautiful and reminds me of when I was little talking to my grandpa who was just sitting bedside next to my mom in a little urn,’ she said.
‘It’s all beautiful, and I love that tradition carries down.’

WHAT IS A STILLBIRTH?
A stillbirth occurs when a baby is born dead after 24 weeks of pregnancy.
If a baby dies before 24 weeks of pregnancy, it is known as a pregnancy loss.
Not all stillbirths can be prevented, however, not smoking or drinking, as well as not sleeping on your back and attending all antenatal appointments can reduce the risk.
What are the signs?
Signs may include the baby not moving as much as normal.
Pregnant women should contact their doctor immediately if they notice a difference to their baby’s movement.
What are the causes?
Stillbirths do not always have an obvious cause but may occur due to complications with the placenta or a birth defect.
They are also more likely to occur if women suffer from high blood pressure, diabetes or an infection that affects the baby, such as flu.
Stillbirths are more likely to occur if women are having twins or multiple pregnancies, are overweight, smoke, are over 35 or have a pre-existing condition, such as epilepsy.
What happens after a stillbirth?
If a baby has died, women may wait for their labour to start naturally or they may be induced if their health is at risk.
Bereavement support groups are available to parents who have suffered stillbirths.
Some find it helpful to name their baby or take pictures with them.
