When did Chrissy Teigen have a miscarriage?

Chrissy lost her baby -boy named Jack – on Wednesday, September 30.

The day before she updated fans from hospital after being taken in on the previous Sunday.

She shared an update while preparing to have a second blood transfusion, writing on Instagram it "truly truly truly sounds more dramatic than it is".

But on the Wednesday evening she shared heart-rending black and white photos of her grieving in hospital.

Chrissy wrote: "We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before.

"We were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed, despite bags and bags of blood transfusions. It just wasn’t enough."

The couple, who are already parents to four-year-old daughter Luna and two-year-old son Miles, announced they were expecting a third child in August.

Why was Chrissy Teigen in hospital?

Chrissy was in hospital after experiencing bleeding.

The star posted snaps from her hospital bed at the Maternity Fetal Unit at Cedars-Sinai medical centre.

She has been on serious bedrest for a few weeks – telling her followers that she is unable to shower, and can only bathe twice a week.

Chrissy revealed to her fans that she has been bleeding throughout her pregnancy, but as it got worse she was moved into hospital.

What had Chrissy Teigen said about her pregnancy?

Chrissy updated her 31 million Instagram followers in a series of selfie videos from her hospital bed.

She explained her health complications in "simple terms", saying: "I was always, always bleeding.

"I'm about halfway through pregnancy and the blood has been going on for a little less than a month.

"More than a period, girls, and definitely not spotting."

"Every time I'd go to the bathroom, it would be blood. But honestly, even just laying there, it would be blood.

"Today the big difference was it was like if you'd turn a faucet on to low and leave it."

She added: "My placenta is really, really weak."

"He's the strongest dude in the sh**tiest house".

Despite her symptoms, Chrissy had said that her spirits remained high.

She said: "If I can make it through the next few weeks, then we can go from there and get out of the danger-zone."

On September 24, Chrissy announced that her latest cook book would be postponed indefinitely due to her "high-risk" pregnancy.

Teigen also added that the pregnancy was unexpected, since she "didn't think" she was able to get pregnant naturally.

Her two other children with husband John Legend – Luna and Miles – were conceived through IVF treatments.

What are the risks of bleeding during pregnancy?

While it is very distressing, bleeding in pregnancy is relatively common, according to the NHS.

In many cases it isn't a sign there's a problem with your baby, but it is always important to get it checked out.

If you suffer any vaginal bleeding while pregnant speak to your midwife or GP immediately.

Cervical changes and minor infections can cause light bleeding – but in other cases, bleeding can be a sign of something more serious.

Miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy, when a fertilised egg implants outside of the womb, can also cause bleeding.

Bleeding in pregnancy can indicate a serious condition called placenta abruption, which is when the placenta has started to detach from the womb wall.

It can also happen in placenta previa, where the placenta lies in the lower part of the womb, covering the cervix.

This means that when the cervix dilates or opens the placenta slightly detaches.

Bed rest is one of the only treatments for the condition, as it maximises blood flow to the placenta.
