Clutch your pearls and faceplant into a hay bale, because we're officially worried about Mackenzie Douthit. This Teen Mom 3 cowgirl is around six months pregnant with her second child, and it looks like the stress of baking a baby in her oven is getting to her. And then some!
Mackenzie's already had a pretty rough pregnancy thanks to being diabetic, and her health scares are taking a huge toll on her both physically and mentally. Apparently, Mackenzie is so stressed about her pregnancy that she's unable to sleep at night, and took it to Facebook to share her woes.
"With all that I’m going through in life right now I have been up tell at least 5 a.m. every night usually crying myself to sleep and begging God to make things better,” she writes. “I knew it wasn’t good for the baby so I asked the doctor for sleeping medicine and he gave me some and sometimes they knock me right out sometimes I’m still up stressing and crying.”
Mackenzie's lack of sleep is putting stress on her body, and could be extremely dangerous for her little girl. “When they [the pills] do knock me out my blood sugar will bottom out which suffocates the baby and I can’t wake up to eat,” she continues. “I haven't been hungry in forever and usually forget to eat two meals a day. I’ve lost 5 pounds but my stomach is growing by the hour.”
Mackenzie has every reason to be fearful, and says that she's officially reached her breaking point, adding that she's "scared to bring a baby into this world with what’s going on." Luckily, Mackenzie is BFFs with the Man Upstairs, but even her faith doesn't seem to be getting her through the hard times. “With all the praying I don’t understand why God would put me through this," Mackenzie says. "I don’t do drugs I work I don’t party I just live for God, my husband, and my kids. I gave up cheer for them which was my dream. I don’t think I can handle much more.”
Anyone else reaching for a box of tissues? We feel terrible that Mackenzie is having such a rough time, but the good news? There are only three months left in her pregnancy, and before too long she'll be cuddling up a storm with her beautiful baby girl!
