Former Bachelor Arie Luyendyk Jr. and wife Lauren Burnham are expecting twins. Fans are excited for their new additions and they recently announced the genders of their two little miracles. Lauren and Arie shared they are having a boy and a girl. This will make them a happy family of five this summer. While everything is going well for the most part, there was a little health scare for Lauren. And, along with sharing her health update, Lauren shared a 17 week baby bump update with fans.
Lauren Burnham had health scare
Last week, Lauren went to Instagram Stories to share a health scare she had due to her pregnancy. Lauren shared she woke up in the middle of the night around 2:00 and had a weird pain. Then, Lauren fainted. Arie took her to the doctor and everything thankfully looked great with the twins.
Lauren went on to say that she had low blood pressure. And, her blood pressure got even lower. So as a result, Arie will be routinely checking her blood pressure at home. Since then she has not posted anything negative about her health so hopefully that means she is doing fine now.
Lauren gives 17 week baby bump update
Arie and Lauren created an Instagram account to keep fans updated on her pregnancy with the twins. They also share updates on the twins Instagram so someday they can look back at their mom’s pregnancy. Lauren started her post saying she was 17 weeks along. She went on to say she saw them both on the ultrasound at the doctor’s this week. And, the babies are approximately 6 ounces and the size of a pomegranate.
Lauren also said her little twins are overachievers. The doctor said they are both already starting to practice breathing. And, since usually twins are born before their due dates, Lauren mentioned next week they will be halfway to meeting their babies. She went on to say she needs to start getting ready for their big debut.
Lauren concluded by saying, “Your big sister has started to realize that you’re in my belly this week and she loves giving you kisses and saying hi. You three are going to be the best of friends. I can’t wait to see you all together! Love you so much! xo Mom.”
Arie and Lauren are so excited to meet their babies. And, fans are enjoying going along on their journey. They both do a great job keeping their followers up-to-date on their little growing family.
Stay tuned for more updates as they become available.
