Lauren Bushnell Lane has revealed that she is suffering from new complications during her second pregnancy. The Bachelor alum is expecting a second baby with husband Chris Lane due in October but took to Instagram to discuss the new challenges this time around.

Lauren and Chris share a son Dutton Walker, and she said that the early weeks of her second pregnancy “were way worse this time around. I just feel like I was way sicker, I threw up a lot more often.” She then explained her condition, saying she was diagnosed with “marginal cord insertion.”

Bushnell Lane explained that marginal cord insertion is when the “umbilical cord attaches to the edge of the placenta instead of the middle,” and can sometimes restrict the flow of nutrients to a fetus.

She said her baby still seems healthy according to her doctor, but the condition could present difficulties “later in pregnancy.” However, she has been assured that all she will need is a little extra monitoring and that the condition is “not super uncommon.”

Lauren became known from her participation in the 20th season of The Bachelor, where she got engaged to Ben Higgins at the end. They split over. a year after their season aired in May 2017, and Lauren began dating country singer Chris Lane in 2019.
