Lala Kent Opens Up About Pregnancy Complications; Says Doctors Were ‘Concerned’ About Her Baby’s Growth Due To Bleeding, ‘Placenta Problem’

Lala Kent is sharing an update on her pregnancy. The Vanderpump Rules star is expecting her first child with fiancé Randall Emmett, and recently opened up about the pregnancy complications she is currently facing, including being on bed rest.

“I’m overwhelmed by the excitement and joy of becoming a mom. Since I found out I was pregnant at around 5 weeks, I found myself changing quickly,” Lala wrote via the Instagram page she has created for her daughter, according to Bravo's The Daily Dish. “At 6 weeks I started bleeding. I went to the emergency room, already knowing what they could tell me. They took me into the room for an ultrasound and I laid there quietly. I asked the nurse what was happening. She said she wasn’t allowed to say. That only the doctor could tell me. I started to sob and gently asked how I was supposed to know what was going on. She stayed silent, and then turned up the monitor where, for the first time, I heard the pitter patter of my baby’s heartbeat. ‘Your baby is still there.’ For the next 3 weeks I would continue to randomly bleed and each time I would call my OB and be beside myself. Although bleeding during pregnancy isn’t normal, it is common. My bleeding was the result of a clot. I was put on bed rest until it was gone.”

She continued, “Soon, my 20 week appointment would roll around, and it would not go perfectly like we all hope each and every appointment will go,” she wrote, explaining that there was concern about her baby’s growth. “The next appointment, there was growth; not much, but some. After a few weeks my doctor concluded that this was a placenta problem, not a kid problem. Although we never want any problem, this was a relief.” 

Kent adds that she is attending appointments twice a week to continue to monitor her baby’s heartbeat and growth. 

“Here we are at 34 weeks. My placenta is measuring more mature; 40 weeks, meaning it’s full term and could stop giving my baby girl what she needs. Before that happens they want her out of the belly,” Lala explained. “When they notice her growth start to slow is when they will make the call to take her out. This could be anywhere from 35-37 weeks. Yes, in 1 to 3 weeks I could be delivering my angel…and all I keep praying for is she comes out healthy. That’s all I think about every day, all day.” 

This will be the first child for Kent as Emmett shares two daughters, London and Rylee, with his ex-wife, Amber Childers.
