Krystal Nielson learns unsettling information about her pregnancy
Krystal went to Instagram to share the terrifying news she received from doctors. She started out by saying, “On Friday we had a growth ultrasound and found a cyst on the umbilical cord near our baby’s abdomen.”
Krystal continued saying, “My doctor sat me down and told me to prepare for a c-section as the pressure from contractions could cause it to rupture resulting in…. things I don’t even want to imagine.” Krystal went on saying all weekend she and Miles sat anxiously awaiting Monday to go in and have another ultrasound. She said, “It was a balance of faith and seeking to find comfort and answers among uncertainty and fear.”
The mother-to-be said she cried a lot. Krystal continued, “The birth experience I’d imagined… complications… and everything in between wore heavy on my heart… but Miles was my rock and together we leaned into trusting that everything would work out exactly as it’s suppose to. 🙏”
What’s to come for Krystal
The ultrasound on March 1 confirmed the cyst. Krystal said the ultrasound confirmed the cyst was in the “moderate range.” Now, she will have two checks weekly to measure the growth of the cyst and her baby. This will happen until her daughter makes her big debut.
After the second ultrasound, Krystal said her doctors are very optimistic about her continuing her original birth plan. Unless something changes she may not need a C-section after all. She went on to say she is very thankful.
Krystal wrapped up her post saying, “While this weekend was just a glimpse into the fears that parenthood can bring up… more importantly, Miles and I learned to lean into each other, trusting Faith and letting go.🙏”
In case anyone forgot, Krystal was married to Chris Randone before announcing their divorce in 2020. They met on Season 5 of Bachelor in Paradise. Then, they wed in June 2019. Following their split announcement she started dating Miles in May 2020. Just a few months later they would learn about her pregnancy.
Both Krystal and Miles are excited for their future as a family.
