Trying to get pregnant can be something of a full-time job for many women. From making sure they’re completely healthy to getting the timing right and even seeing fertility specialists, having a child is often a well planned out and formulated process. For the Teen Mom girls, though, the process is often quite a bit different.
Although some of the cast members have gotten pregnant intentionally in recent years, many of them have continued to have unexpected pregnancies with long-term partners or one-night stands the same. It doesn’t surprise many fans, considering that they all got pregnant unexpectedly when they were just 16 or 17 years old. Most recently, Amber Portwood has joined the ranks of having a second “oopsie” pregnancy.
However, it’s left many fans wondering what she’s been doing to prepare for her baby, and what bad habits she’s stopped. For the mothers who plan to get pregnant, drinking is completely off the table. As we’ve seen in recent episodes, Amber continued drinking — which is understandable, since she wasn’t planning to get pregnant. But how far into her pregnancy did she continue drinking? According to this insider, it’s not looking good for Amber…
The timeline of Amber Portwood’s pregnancy has been confusing from the very beginning, even leading some to question if Matt could be her baby daddy. After she admitted to her pregnancy, she left many fans wondering exactly how things went down. However, one red flag went up very quickly, since Amber hasn’t seemed to change many of her lifestyle habits in recent episodes of Teen Mom OG. One of her habits in particular has many fans disturbed, and an insider is now speaking out.
“I know it is a vacation and all, but a couple of things,” wrote an insider back in September when Amber and Andrew were vacationing in Hawaii. “This Teen Mom paid for all of it and right now her cash flow situation is not great, Second, she has been wasted drunk almost the whole time she has been there which is probably not the best idea.”
At the time this insider knowledge came out, it wasn’t clear why drinking was such a “bad idea.” Now it’s glaringly obvious: was Amber drinking even after she discovered she was pregnant?
Many fans were quick to accept this upsetting timeline. “Sad that I’m not shocked her vacation and new man would be a priority over any fetus,” wrote Reddit user zentini. “Can’t ruin the vacation.”
Others seemed to point the finger at MTV producers, like user chrissycakes8726 who wrote, “So the MTV crew was there finding out she was pregnant and also watching her drink excessively the whole time? Hmm.”
Luckily, there’s the very likely chance that Amber drank before she knew she was pregnant, and then stopped immediately. “It says almost the whole time so I would bet she quit drinking after she found out,” wrote Reddit user Jonbonnet. They added, “I doubt Andrew would have encouraged it as he needs the baby for whatever agenda he set up.”
This is one of many unpleasant rumors about Amber’s pregnancy, including one that she and Andrew got pregnant on purpose to cash in on MTV’s rumored “baby bonuses.” In short, this rumor suggests that the girls who get pregnant and have babies on Teen Mom get paid more than those who don’t.
