Chris Lane’s wife, Lauren Lane is opening up about her pregnancy and revealed that she has been diagnosed with a condition called marginal umbilical cord insertion. 

Lauren, who is currently 20 weeks pregnant according to her Instagram stories, detailed her diagnosis in a series of Instagram stories on Tuesday. 

“I realized the last thing I posted was that picture of me looking real rough in the hospital. But, the first 13 weeks-ish were way worse this time around. I just feel like i was way sicker. I threw up a lot more often, hence hospital visit,” she revealed, adding, “Thankfully now, I am feeling so much better. 

The Bachelor alumni then revealed her pregnancy condition to her 1.5 million followers with hopes that someone else has experienced the same thing. 

“I was recently diagnosed with something called marginal cord insertion. I was incredibly stressed out when my doctor told me that but I am trying to stay optimistic,” Lauren admitted. “And I am just wondering if anyone else on here has been diagnosed that and what that was like for you and your pregnancy.”

According to her doctor, she will have to get an ultrasound every four weeks throughout the remainder of her pregnancy. 

“It sounds like I just have to be monitored more often. As of now, the baby is very healthy. Looks like measuring great, measuring a little bit big if anything, so that is such a blessing,” she said. 

According to Birth Injury Help Center, marginal umbilical cord insertion “occurs when the cord attaches on the side of the placenta instead of in the middle at the central placental mass. Marginal cord insertion is considered abnormal and it occurs in roughly 9 out of every 100 pregnancies.” 

Before signing off Lauren added, “Again, I’m trying to stay optimistic, but I do know It can cause some complications. So just be saying some prayers for us.” 

Chris Lane and Lauren Lane announced that they were expecting their second child earlier this week in a People exclusive. 

“To be quite honest, I’ve never been more shocked in my entire life, because this was very much an unexpected surprise,” Lauren told People. “We had planned on having at least two kids, so we’re very thankful that it was able to happen for us, even if it wasn’t necessarily on our exact timing. We’re both just incredibly excited.”

Their new bundle of joy will join their son, Dutton Walker Lane, who arrived in June 2021 and will celebrate his first birthday later this week.
