Chrissy Teigen took to Instagram Monday evening after receiving a pair of blood transfusions, reassuring her fans, 'baby and I are completely fine.'

Teigen, 34, wrote Monday, 'Hello from hospital. about to have my second blood transfusion which truly truly truly sounds more dramatic than it is.'

She continued: 'It’s an IV, but instead of fluids, the blood of some kind human being out there. Baby and I are completely fine, just missing the little things like walking...cooking...playing with the other buttbutts.'

The model had already been on strict bed rest this month but as she explained in a series of Instagram Stories on Sunday, her bleeding had worsened. 

Chrissy begged her followers not to try and diagnose her over Twitter as she explained more about her condition.

'We all know I've been on bed rest for a few weeks and that's like super serious bed rest. I get up to pee and take baths twice a week, no showering, just as little as possible,' Chrissy began.

She said of her treatment, 'It’s an IV, but instead of fluids, the blood of some kind human being out there'

'But I was always, always bleeding. I'm about halfway through pregnancy and the blood has been going on for about a month, maybe a little bit less than a month. We're talking about more than your period girls, it's definitely not spotting. A lot of people spot but it's usually fine. Mine was a lot.' 

'Everytime I go to the bathroom it would be blood, and honestly just laying there there would be blood.'

Chrissy went on to explain that on Sunday her bleeding worsened comparing it to 'like if you were to turn a faucet onto low and leave it there...It was at the point today where it was never stopping, the bleeding.'

She added that she was feeling great, telling her fans 'it's so weird because I feel really good. I'm usually at my happiest pregnant, mood wise. That's why it's so hard for me to come to terms with.'  

Chrissy also beamed as she revealed her baby was doing well, explaining: 'In the simplest of terms we can say my placenta is really, really weak, So I feel really good and the baby is so healthy, growing stronger than Luna or Miles.'

'He moves so much, so much earlier than they ever did. I'm so excited for him, he's the strongest little dude. He;'s the strongest coolest dude in the sh***iest house.'

'So his house is like falling apart. It didn't have a good foundation to begin with, he didn't have the strongest chance at the very, very beginning so all we're doing now is trying to make sure he has a lot of fluid around him and I'm resting as much as possible.'

'A blood transfusion may be needed if you have a shortage of red blood cells.

'This may be because your body's not making enough red blood cells or because you have lost blood.

'For example, you may need a blood transfusion if you have
