Chrissy Teigen's third pregnancy continues to be a complicated one. The Cravings author revealed that she was hospitalized over the weekend due to excessive bleeding caused by what she calls a "weak placenta." She said on her Instagram Story, “I’m about halfway through pregnancy and the blood has been going on for like a month... It was at the point today where it was never stopping bleeding, and that’s obviously very bad. It’s so weird because I feel really good. I’m usually at my happiest pregnant … and that’s why it’s so hard for me to come to terms with.” For better or worse, a friend of Teigen's also tried to help her laugh about her precarious position by sending her (wait for it) a cake made to look like a placenta. It came with a note that read, “Dear Chrissy, I’m sorry your placenta sucks so I got you a new one.” Teigen took the demented dessert in stride, telling her 4-year-old daughter Luna, “Did you know that you can make this into a smoothie?"
