Chrissy Teigen’s third pregnancy isn’t as easy as her first two.

The 34-year-old cookbook author announced in her Instagram story on Tuesday that she had been put on “serious bed rest” after failing to properly follow the doctors’ instructions.

Teigen, who is pregnant with her third child with musician John Legend, was put on bed rest for the first time last week. But the model admitted that she misinterpreted what “bed rest” actually means.

Now “I’m in trouble,” she said on Tuesday.

“I didn’t really know that bed rest was in bed. I honestly thought bed rest is that you really, really need to relax and stay at home,” said a bedridden Teigen on Tuesday. “I thought it might be couch rest.”

Despite her “difficult pregnancy”, Teigen said she felt “good” and was trying to “be as healthy as possible”.

“I’m going to say that I’ll probably get punished for talking so much about how great the first two were. I said, ‘Oh yeah, pregnancy is great!’ But now I understand, “she said. “I get someone who thinks it’s not that great, but very happy to have that baby.”

With all the extra time, Teigen reached out to her Twitter account to share an update from her first full day in bed.

The latest addition will join siblings Luna (4) and Miles (2).
