Chrissy Teigen Clapped Back at Someone Who Shamed Her for Holding Luna Too Much

“Lip Sync Battle” cohost, model and cookbook author Chrissy Teigen is busily preparing for the arrival of her baby boy, but that won’t stop her from taking down a troll or two in the meantime. Yesterday, Teigen’s husband, singer John Legendposted to Instagram a super-sweet picture of himself toting their daughter Luna, 22 months, on his hip.

And the world is just horrible enough to include someone who could find something wrong with that photo. “So tired of seeing them carrying her. She needs no legs then,” said the truly miserable Instagrammer @queenhollandmeissner.

Other commenters rushed to defend Legend. “John is a good dad. At least he’s bonding with his child. Nothing wrong with carrying her,” said one.

“Toddlers: Not famous for walking as the crow flies in a brisk fashion. When you’re in a hurry you pick ’em up! She’s a beauty,” said another.

But it was Teigen’s swift reply that brought the Instagram house down:

“Are you so tired of it? Does it make you so sad and upset 😦 we are so sorry to make you, queen holland meissner of the universe sad and upset. what can we do for you to make it better, sweet angel,” Teigen responded.

Teigen definitely suffers no fools—and fears no trolls. But she is human, and she admitted last week that she’s anxious about the possibility of going through another period of postpartum depression. On Saturday, Teigen was chatting with her friend, celeb hairstylist Jen Atkin (who’s responsible for Kim Kardashian West‘s perfect mane) at the Create & Cultivate conference in Los Angeles.

During a Q&A, Teigen told Atkin she’s aware she’s at risk for a return of the postpartum depression she endured after Luna’s birth. “Do I worry about it with this little boy? I do. But I also know that when it does happen—if it does—I’m so ready for it. I have the perfect people around me for it. That’s why I stand for a real core group of people around me.”

Hear that, internet trolls? Don’t mess with Teigen’s peeps.

Teigen talked with Atkin about her initial PPD battle and how she was unaware of its seriousness. “I had just had Luna. I knew I had an incredible life and husband and family and all the resources necessary. I knew that I was personally unhappy, but I didn’t think that anything was wrong with it because I just assumed that that’s the way it goes,” she said. “You have a kid, you’re sad, you lose those endorphins and that’s the way it is.”

But Teigen admitted to Glamour in April 2017 that she wished someone had talked to her about postpartum depression before and after Luna’s birth. “I do wish that more people had spoken up around me. I encourage anyone who sees something around them to point it out,” she said. “It took me to finally sit myself down because I think it’s hard for people to point something out.”

Teigen is prepared to do battle again—be it lip sync, PPD or trolls. Take notice, world. This is one mama who is ready for you.

6 Early Pregnancy Signs You Should Definitely Pay Attention To

From the time women hit puberty, it’s like we become personal investigators into whether or not we’re pregnant. Many of us take birth control measures and still hold our breath every month waiting for our periods to arrive, and others who are pursuing pregnancy look for the smallest signs that they may have conceived.

Whether you’re in the first camp or the second, we can agree we’d probably know sooner rather than later if we might be pregnant. For that reason, we spoke to doctors about what symptoms most often indicate a pregnancy. First, before you panic or get excited or some combination of the two, it’s important to remember that not everyone responds the same way to being pregnant.

According to Dr. Grace Kong, an OB-GYN at Saddleback Memorial Medical Center in Laguna Hills, California, every woman is different in terms of what combination of symptoms she may or may not feel during early pregnancy. Not only that, but each pregnancy can have different symptoms in the same individual, she added. So just because you didn’t get morning sickness while pregnant with your first child, that may not be the case with the second.

Here are a few early signs of pregnancy and when to visit your doctor.

Missed Period

We’ll start with the most obvious. The missed or late period, which is what prompts most women to take a home pregnancy test. If it’s positive, make an appointment with your doctor.

If it’s positive and you’re experiencing any unusual symptoms, like severe pain or heavy bleeding, Kong said that you should be evaluated by a doctor right away to make sure there isn’t a concern for abnormal pregnancy such as an ectopic pregnancy or a miscarriage.

“As long as the patient is ‘low-risk’—not on prescription medications, no history of medical problems and no complications with prior pregnancies—then it is best to see a doctor around 6 to 8 weeks of pregnancy,” says Dr. Elizabeth West, an OB-GYN at Miller Children’s and Women’s Hospital in Long Beach, California.

But West advises that any patients with medical problems or other issues should see their doctor earlier to ensure they are doing everything they can to optimize the pregnancy.

Breast Tenderness

Both Kong and West say that increased breast tenderness and swelling could be an early sign of pregnancy. Of course, fluctuating hormones can cause changes in your breasts throughout the month, but if they’re feeling particularly sensitive, it might be the signal of something more.

Fatigue

Sure, we’re all tired all the time, but if you’re feeling extra tired and can’t figure out why, it could be an early symptom of pregnancy, which Kong says may present early on. In fact, as West points out, the fatigue could set in before you’ve even missed your period.

Nausea

As pregnancy hormones increase, it may result in nausea or vomiting, Kong says. According to West, this phase of pregnancy typically happens five to six weeks after conception, and despite being called “morning sickness,” it can occur at any time of day or night.

Aversion to Foods and Smells

Some patients experience food aversions and sensitivity to odors very early in pregnancy, West explains. So if you’re normally all about the smell of baking bread but all of a sudden it makes you sick, that might be a sign.

Bleeding and Cramps

Yes, this sounds a lot like a period, but it’s not. According to Kong, a small amount of spotting and cramps can occur as the embryo implants into the uterine lining. When in doubt, there’s no harm in doing a quick at-home pregnancy test. No one likes peeing on a stick, but it’s totally worth it to put your mind at ease.
