The recent Kailyn Lowry pregnancy news has prompted an array of responses across social media.
Some fans of the Teen Mom star are very excited for her and her kids, while others have said some really mean and judgmental things.
Now, however, due to something Lowry revealed late last week on Twitter, many observers are expressing a new emotion in reply to othis bombshell:
“Progesterone shots every week again,” the 27-year old wrote on Thursday, February 6. “Anyone else have this?”
For the record, this hormone is typically injected into pregnant women who have previously experienced early labor or suffered a miscarriage, according to Healthline.
Progesterone also helps make sure there are enough dilated blood vessels in the uterus to feed the embryo.
(The “Coffee Convos” podcast cohost suffered a miscarriage before Lux’s birth, and the loss was documented on season 7 of the MTV series.)
So... is Lowry alright? Yes, that seems to be the case.
This is more of precautionary measure, one pregnant women sometimes take in order to get ahead of any potential health issues and everyone can now breathe a collective sigh of relief.
Lowry, meanwhile, turned some long-gestating rumors into a somewhat surprising reality several days ago when she confirmed she was pregnant with her fourth child.
This is what she wrote at the time:
We’re confirming the news, baby #4 is coming soon!
I’m almost 16 weeks pregnant & it’s been a rough few months this time around. I’ve had nausea, morning sickness, and absolutely no energy.
This week I’m starting to feel a bit better and I’m really hoping it stays this way.
Lowry is already mother a 10-year old son named Isaac with Jo Rivera; a six-year old son named Lincoln with Javi Marroquin; and a two-year old son named Lux with Chris Lopez.
Lopez, of course, is the presumed father of this fourth child.
Kailyn has yet to confirm this assumption herself, but Chris said something very disgusting online last week that appeared to both verify the development AND reveal the gender of this impending child.
Lowry and Lopez have seemingly been on terrible terms for quite awhile now, with Kailyn recently telling podcast listeners that Chris has scarcely any contact at all with his son.
But he evidently did have a certain type of intimate contact with Kailyn at some point in the past couple months... if you know what we mean.
Kailyn hasn't said much in public about her pregnancy outside of this announcement.
She's simply shot down a few trolls here and there.
It's worth noting that no MTV co-star has offered up any public well wishes or notes of congratulations, either. So that's a storyline worth following.
For now, though, we'll just wish Lowry good luck and great health because there is an actual baby at the center of all this and that's important to remember.
