What had Chrissy Teigen said about her pregnancy?
Chrissy updated her 35 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."

She added: "I don’t really feel like I fully processed Jack and now that I don’t have the alcohol to numb it away, things are just…there, waiting to be acknowledged."
She concluded her post that saying life is "f***ing complicated."
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.
