Pregnant Mackenzie Douthit Recovering in the Hospital After Diabetic Scare
Teen Mom 3's Mackenzie Douthit shocked fans when she was unexpectedly rushed to hospital on January 30 after experiencing a drop in her blood sugar. This certainly isn't Mackenzie's first hospitalization for Type 1 diabetes, but it's particularly concerning due to the fact that she's currently 36 weeks pregnant with her second child!
Mackenzie's mom, Angie Douthit, confirmed the news, tweeting, "At hospital with Mic! Trying to stop low blood sugars. Hoping to keep baby girl in for at least another week!"
Mackenzie and the baby are currently stable, but doctors have to keep a close eye on them in order to prevent premature delivery, which means Mackenzie had to spend the night in hospital. "Mic is spending another night in the hospital!" Angie confirmed later that night.
The longer Mackenzie stays pregnant the better, and while her baby would likely be fine delivered at 36 weeks, it's preferable that this kiddo stays put until the 40-week mark when she's considered full-term!
So how does Mackenzie feel about this frightening turn of events? Looks like she's in good spirits, y'all! "Being in the hospital is never fun," she tweeted, "but it was great bonding time with my mommy."
Way to keep your chin up, girl. Make sure to keep Mackenzie in your thoughts, and in the meantime, check back in with Wetpaint Entertainment for more updates on her hospitalization and possible pre-term delivery!
