In 2016, Chirssy Teigen wrote an article about dealing with postpartum depression after giving birth to her daughter Luna. In a new interview, Teigen theorized she was spared the pain of PPD this time around by eating placenta.

Chrissy Teigen’s third pregnancy isn’t as “easy peasy” as her first two. 

The cookbook author, 34, revealed on her Instagram Story Tuesday that she’s been placed on “serious bed rest” after not properly following doctors’ orders. 

Teigen, who’s pregnant with her third child with musician John Legend, was first placed on bed rest last week. But the model admitted that she misinterpreted what “bed rest” actually entails.

Now, “I’m in trouble,” she said Tuesday.  

“I didn’t really know that bed rest was in bed. I honestly thought bed rest was you have to really, really relax, stay home,” a bedridden Teigen said Tuesday. “I thought it could be couch rest.”

Despite her “difficult pregnancy,” Teigen said she “feels good” and is “trying to be as healthy as possible.”

“I will say I’m probably being punished for talking so much about how great the first two went. I was like, ‘Oh yeah, pregnancy’s awesome!’ But now I get it,” she said. “I get anyone that thinks it’s not so awesome, but very happy to be carrying this baby.”

With all the extra time on her hands, Teigen turned to her Twitter account to share an update from her first full day in bed.
