In a brand new teaser for the upcoming episode of Teen Mom OG, Amber Portwood talks about a health scare that occurred during her pregnancy. The worried reality TV star stresses that ‘We gotta keep the baby healthy.’
She goes on to explain to her boyfriend Andrew Glennon that ‘My morning sickness has been getting worse, so I went to the doctor and found out I have gestational diabetes. I feel like I could just like go to sleep right now.’
As she is shown cuddled up in her bed, the woman adds: ‘I need to eat some fruit or something. Maybe my sugar is just low.’
Her boyfriend and baby daddy looks really worried and gives her just what she wanted. – Glennon hands his girlfriend a fruit cup and even sweetly feeds her a piece of fruit.
Portwood continues to eat fruit under her blankets, looking all depressed when the man announces: ‘I am gonna look up some diabetes diets right now for you.’
Meanwhile, Amber is also down because she ‘cannot really enjoy [her] pregnancy as much.
Instead of being all excited that she is making a new human, the reality star shares that she is ‘always feeling tired, always feeling useless.’
Compared to her first pregnancy with Leah, Amber explains that ‘This pregnancy — I don’t know if it’s because I am older — has definitely been a lot more rough.’
‘Well, are you ready to change your diet?’ asks her boyfriend.
‘Yeah, we gotta keep the baby healthy,’ the woman replies.
As you may be aware, gestational diabetes is a pretty common form of high blood sugar that affects many expecting mothers today.
Hopefully, everything is going to be Okay.
