She seems devastated
The Teen Mom cast members have all been lucky to deliver perfectly healthy babies with relatively uncomplicated pregnancies. Although Kailyn struggled with her most recent pregnancy, when all of the Teen Mom babies were born over the years, their health was stable enough to leave the hospital almost immediately.
Unfortunately, not all of the cast of 16 and Pregnant has had the same experience with their births.
During her second pregnancy, 16 and Pregnant star updated long-time fans about some unfortunate complications that landed her in a hospital bed. Fans were relieved when she gave birth to her twins, but it wasn’t the end of the battle. After finally being able to take her twins home from the hospital, Lindsey has updated with another heartbreaking bump in the road.
A Long Road
Lindsey Nicholson starred on 16 and Pregnant while she was still with her first baby daddy. Since then, she’s married her new man TJ, who went on to adopt her first child, Aniyah.
Soon afterwards, she took to social media to share some exciting news about her second pregnancy. “When the ultrasound tech said she would be right back, mine and TJ’s hearts dropped. I told him ‘something’s wrong.’ She came back in and said, ‘Y’all are having twins!’”
Even before Lindsey Nicholson’s second pregnancy was over, she was posting updates from a hospital bed. “As of this morning I’m now 4cm dilated & 95% effaced with Jackson’s water bag hanging out of my cervix,” she shared with fans on Instagram. “Ive been admitted into the hospital for the remainder of my pregnancy. Praying this constant bedrest will help keep these two twinnies in for a few more weeks.”
It seemed like all of the difficulty would be behind her when she finally gave birth to her twins, but that wasn’t the end of the hardship. Her daughter Paisley contracted a staph infection, requiring more attention.
“They also found possible signs of pneumonia in her lungs,” Lindsey shared. “They will be keeping a very close eye on it. Needless to say… Little Paisley is one hell of a fighter. She definitely made her statement in the medical world.”
Back to NICU
“She’s also getting a blood transfusion,” Lindsey shared on Twitter. “Please, please, please say a prayer for her.”
She later updated, “They are giving her stronger doses [of antibiotics] and different kinds in hopes they can kill the infection within the next day or two.”
After battling with signs of pneumonia, blood cultures, and more tests, it looked like things were finally getting better. “[Paisley is] feeling much better and smiling a lot now,” Lindsey went on to update. “As for Jackson, he’s doing awesome & was able to get the antibiotics today! … Can’t wait to have them home.”
After a long stay in the NICU, Lindsey shared that both of her twins were coming home. “Crying. Just crying,” she captioned this adorable photo of Paisley with a stuffed toy. “After 76 days our sweet girl finally became a NICU graduate & got to come home. Our family is officially complete #paisleycamehome.”
In this most recent devastating update though, Lindsey shared that Paisley was returning for more hospital care. “I can’t even believe I’m writing this. I’m heartbroken.. Paisley is being readmitted to the NICU and transported back to Houston,” she wrote on Facebook. “Not in the mood to give details at the moment.. Please just pray for our sweet girl.”
