In a heartbreaking Instagram post, American model Chrissy Teigen marked the first anniversary of losing her third baby, whom she and singer John Legend named Jack, following her miscarriage last year.

The actress, who shares two amazing kids with her husband Legend, experienced a very public miscarriage of their late baby boy Jack after weeks of pregnancy complications, which saw her in hospital bed fearing for the worst, according to BuzzFeed News.

"We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we've never felt before," Chrissy told her Instagram followers in October last year. She would share a series of black-and-white photos with John in the hospital.

According to the mom of two, the doctors were not never able to stop her bleeding and give baby Jack the fluids he needed, noting bags and bags of blood transfusions weren't enough to save her supposed third child.

"We never decide on our babies' names until the last possible moment after they’re born, just before we leave the hospital," she further explained. "But we, for some reason, had started to call this little guy in my belly Jack. So he will always be Jack to us."

Now a year on from her "greatest pain," Teigen admits she is still reminded of her unfortunate pregnancy when she looks at herself in the mirror. She said it feels weird that her body "gets paused in time" after her miscarriage as she shares the ordeal with fans on social media.

"[Your body] has nothing to do, no one to feed. And you're just…stuck. Stuck with saggy boobs that were prepping to be milk bags, a belly that was ready to bake," she wrote in a post this month. "Not only are you ummmm extremely, diabolically sad at what could have been, but you have this daily reminder every time you look in the goddamn mirror."

According to Arielle Spiegel, the founder of CoFertility, there are physical symptoms and body changes to cope with for women who had a miscarriage or stillbirth, noting recovery varies from person to person.

"Recovery also depends on the method in which you miscarry," she said. "People who have a miscarriage without medical intervention might have bleeding and cramping for up to four weeks, whereas people who have dilation and curettage navigate the complexities of surgery."

The more advanced a pregnancy is, the more symptoms a person might have after pregnancy loss, she added as she urged women who are unhappy with their body after a loss to consult their doctors about pelvic floor physical therapy or ways to dry up their breast milk supply. Acceptance also goes a long way, Spiegel told Insider.

Earlier this month, Chrissy and John got emotional after dropping off Luna Simone Stephens, 5, and Miles Theodore Stephens, 3, to school with their daughter starting kindergarten on Sept. 9 and their little boy beginning pre-K.

The couple documented the major milestone for their children as they shared their photos on Instagram, which showed all of them are masked up amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, E! Online noted.

Both Luna and Miles also held up a "first-day" sign indicating their name, grade, and interests, with dream jobs also on display. Luna said she wanted to become a veterinarian someday while Miles, who was sporting a Tyrannosaurus T-shirt and dinosaur backpack, decided to become a dinosaur when he grows up.
