Chrissy Teigen On How Her New Cookbook Helped Her Cope During Pregnancy Loss

Reflecting on pregnancy loss awareness week, Chrissy Teigen revealed one way she coped through her recent pregnancy loss: cooking.

Today, Teigen tweeted the introduction for her upcoming cookbook Cravings: All Together, which drops on Oct. 26.

“Pregnancy loss awareness week you say?? I know. I feel like I never let you forget it, either,” she began.

“But I was going through BTS of cookbook making with @adeenasussman and came across this photo, taken soon after losing our little jack. as I’ve said before, I absolutely threw myself into writing, quickly, to distract from the trauma, the pain, the grief.”

“But not all days were productive. Many were…this. Days I felt suctioned to the couch with barely an appetite to even taste our recipes. It was during this time that i truly believed Adeena was sent by god herself. When I tell your this book saved me, i only kind of mean that. It was Adeena. Love u guys. X.”

Just two weeks ago, Teigen penned a raw and emotional note to her Instagram about losing her “almost” son.

“…and to the son we almost had. a year ago you gave me the greatest pain I could ever imagine to show me I could survive anything, even if I didn’t want to. i didn’t get to take care of you but you came and went to get me to love myself and take care of myself because our bodies are precious and life is a miracle. they told me it would get easier but yeah, that hasn’t started yet. mom and dad love you forever.”

And not too long before that, Teigen posted a selfie featuring a full-body shot, speaking on the changes that have happened since losing her little boy.

“it’s really weird when you lose a baby and your body gets paused in time. usually you’d gain your ‘yumyums I’m praaaagnant!’ weight, then put on the weight of your little bebe. Then, ideally, you’d have your baby. And you would feed it from your boobs and your body would know to charge through and do what it does to get you back into fighting shape, whatever that may be, for however long it takes (f*** a snap-back)…”

“But man. When you lose a baby halfway through, your body just pauses. It has nothing to do. No one to feed. And you’re just…stuck. Stuck with saggy boobs that were prepping to be milk bags, a belly that was ready to bake. I would be lying if I said this did not majorly suck. Not only are you ummmm extremely, diabolically sad at what could have been, but you have this daily reminder every time you look in the g****** mirror.”

“I don’t really have a big ending or positive words lol. And don’t say nice things!! I know I know I promise. I know it’s not everything and I know i’m suuuuuch a b***** and blah blah blah I just thought I’d be emo for a minute ok! I love you. f*** a scale!”
