Chrissy Teigen shared with her Twitter followers that Baby Jack, who she tragically lost in September last year was due to have been born this week.
She said in a Twitter post: “my little jack would have been born this week so I’m a bit off. I truly feel kicks in my belly, but it’s not phantom. I have surgery for endometriosis tomorrow…but the period feeling this month is exactly like baby kicks. sigh.”
Chrissy went on to share a video of her tummy and her experiences of feeling little kicks in her belly.
The cramping Chrissy is experiencing is associated with very severe cases of endometriosis – which is when cells from lining of your uterus (the endometrium) grow outside of it too, attaching to other parts of the body.

Fans were quick to offer messages of support and solidarity for Chrissy.
Caitlin said: “I miscarried in December and seeing you talk about it has helped me so much. I feel a little less crazy. My due date was July 3 and I’m dreading it.”
Danielle commented: “I’m so sorry Chrissy. You will never forget precious Jack. My little girl Anna Belle was stillborn in 2014, and there’s not a day that goes by where I don’t think of her. At the time my friend told me : “one foot in front of the other, and don’t forget to breathe”. It saved me xx”
Chrissy shared her thoughts on losing Jack in an emotional essay as well as her reasons behind taking and sharing photographs of her tragic experience:
“I had asked my mom and John to take pictures, no matter how uncomfortable it was. I explained to a very hesitant John that I needed them, and that I did NOT want to have to ever ask. That he just had to do it. He hated it. I could tell. It didn’t make sense to him at the time. But I knew I needed to know of this moment forever, the same way I needed to remember us kissing at the end of the aisle, the same way I needed to remember our tears of joy after Luna and Miles. And I absolutely knew I needed to share this story.”
We hope your surgery goes well Chrissy – lots of love xxx
