Lyrica Anderson Shares Pregnancy Complications
Lyrica Anderson is a proud new mom to baby Ocean Zion Bentley, but before basking in bliss with her baby boy she had a scare.
Lyrica and her hubby A-1 welcomed their son last week but according to Lyrica, she had shocking complications including convulsions and a high fever.
The “Love and Hip Hop Hollywood” star told TMZ via her hospital bed that she initially worried she’d deliver baby Ocean early due to the stress of LHHHH and the Safaree accusations—but luckily made it full term.
“First of all, it was a tough pregnancy. Not the symptoms, well the symptoms a little bit, but it was just a lot of emotional things going on and I just kept worrying that I didn’t want to have like an accidental early birth or go into labor from stress or anything like that,” she said. “So, praise God, I made it with my full term. And then, I thought I was in the clear.”
After giving birth, however, her temperature went sky high and she started shaking and itching uncontrollably. Lyrica was so scared that she actually thought she was dying.
“Once we had the baby I was like, ‘Oh my God, we did it!’ Everything was ok. And then after the birth is when it got a little traumatic,” she said. “I ran a super high fever out of nowhere. I started going into some sort of convulsions. I couldn’t stop shaking for a good seven hours straight. Just shaking, shaking, shaking with a fever, and then I couldn’t stop itching. They had to literally bring toothbrushes in my room to let me scratch my skin so that I wouldn’t pierce my skin. And it was the scariest thing because I’m shaking and itching. I literally thought I was dying. Like, honestly I was so scared. Why am I shaking so much?”
She also added that she thought she was having a heart attack but luckily the chest pains passed. She’s now recovering.
“They said that they’ve seen bad reactions but that was like one of the worst that they’ve seen, so they were definitely concerned,” she said. “They were constantly checking my vitals to make sure that my heart — ’cause I got really bad chest pains. I was like, I want to make sure I’m not having a heart attack. They were constantly checking my heart, constantly checking my blood, my temperature and everything. They’ve had me on very close watch. They’ve done, actually, a really good job, so I’m happy about that. I’m still really weak when I stand up. I have the most energy when I’m sitting…It’s when I get up and walk around that I’m real weak and faint-ish. They said it’s going to get better with time.”
Lyrica’s since gone home with baby Ocean…
but so far she’s not showing her baby’s face.
We’re glad to hear that Lyrica’s doing much better after having those scary complications.
