Chrissy Teigen arrives at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Feb. 9, 2020, in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Just two days after Chrissy Teigen shared that she'd been hospitalized over the weekend due to heavy bleeding while pregnant, the model shared an update on her condition.

In a series of posts on Instagram on Monday (Sept. 28), Teigen revealed that she received two blood transfusions. "hello from hospital. about to have my second blood transfusion which truly truly truly sounds more dramatic than it is. It’s an IV, but instead of fluids, the blood of some kind human being out there," she shared.

"Baby and I are completely fine, just missing the little things like walking...cooking...playing with the other buttbutts. came across this little gem from ringing in 2020. It all makes sense now," she cheekily assured alongside a photo from New Year's Eve, in which Teigen is seen looking completely over it.

On Tuesday (Sept. 29), Teigen provided another update--this one a bit more serious than the others. "Just had a really scary morning," she tweeted. "huge clot, almost save-worthy. The scramble to hear the heartbeat seemed like hours. I never thought I’d relief sigh so much in my liiiiife."

The hospitalization comes after the Cravings cookbook author had been on strict bedrest "for a few weeks" as a result of her high-risk pregnancy. "I get up to quickly pee and that's it. I would take baths twice a week, no showering, just as little as possible," she explained on her Instagram Stories over the weekend."But I was always, always bleeding. I'm about, like, halfway through pregnancy and the blood has been going on for like a month. Maybe a little bit less than a month, but we're talking, like, more than your period, girls. And definitely not spotting. A lot of people spot and it's usually fine. But yeah, mine was a lot."

Teigen is currently pregnant with her third child, which she revealed was a boy last week, with husband John Legend. The couple also share daughter Luna, 4, and son Miles, 2.
