Deena Cortese revealed the scariest moment of her pregnancy to her roommates on Thursday’s episode of “Jersey Shore Family Vacation.”
As reported by OK!, the soon-to-be mom told her “Shore” co-stars she would not be joining the next shared vacation home because she’s concerned for her baby.
Cortese opened up about her miscarriage fears to her roommates.
She tearfully told Jenni “JWoww” Farley and Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi:
“Last week, I had a scare. I get emotional because it’s scary. I just started bleeding, but I’m fine. Honestly, the scariest moment in my life.”
Cortese went on to share that her husband Christopher Buckner was her support system throughout the pregnancy scare. The 31-year-old revealed:
“I was a nervous wreck, but [Buckner] was so calm, thank God.”
As previously reported by Dearly, Buckner and Cortese are expected to welcome baby boy Christopher John in December.
The first time mother assured her friends that the baby is just fine, but the expecting mother had been put on bed rest for the remainder of her pregnancy. She explained:
“The doctor wanted to put me on bed rest until my follow-up appointment ’cause I’m still spotting. I just think it might be better for me not to live in the house, but I’d love to come and visit you guys and maybe me and Chris will come down for a weekend or something.”
According to the American Pregnancy Association, spotting during pregnancy affects about 20 percent of women during the first trimester. However, spotting or bleeding isn’t a cause for major concern until after the second or third trimesters. The website warns:
Abnormal bleeding in late pregnancy may be more serious because it can signal a complication with you or your baby. Call your doctor as soon as possible if you experience any bleeding in your second or third trimester.
The pregnant star has since shared photos from her baby shower after her scary ordeal.
All the co-stars made it out to her “amazing shower” on Saturday, including Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola, who didn’t return for the revival series.
