JWoww Reveals Pregnancy Scare – Unborn Baby Had Cyst on Her Brain
'Jersey Shore' alum Jenni Farley aka JWoww has been vocal about the fact that she hates being pregnant, but can't wait to meet her unborn daughter when she makes her grand entrance. That said, the reality star shared a horrifying scare she dealt with earlier in her pregnancy.
Her unborn baby -- her first child -- had a cyst on her brain!
In a very vivid and candid blog post, Farley shared her feelings upon finding out that her daughter had this rare cyst. You can't help but feel for her as you read about how she coped with the fear.
The good news is that the cyst, as doctors predicted, went away and all is fine with her little-girl-to-be. Whew. But she still dealt with some pretty tense moments of fear.
Below is her full post.
Pregnancy and me don’t mix. I keep saying to myself “how can women enjoy this s--t?!” I’m always on edge because every appointment I find something else that’s crazy and unexpected. So let me try and explain how crazy life has been since the last picture of my daughter I posted. AKA the picture ABOVE!
That gorgeous pic of my daughter would set in motion a bunch of crazy a-- specialist appointments that I was not prepared for. One day I was putting my basement back together and get a call from my Obgyn. He begins to tell me “now don’t panic.” Ummmm right there I’m panicking. “Jenni we came across a small issue on your last ultra sound picture and I would like to send you to a specialist”
OMG OMFG OMG OMG
“Your daughter seems to have a small cyst on her brain… I see this every so often and you..” At this point I honestly can’t tell u what he’s saying because I go numb and tears are just flowing. I can’t even begin to try and stop the tears. So after about another 5 minutes of explanations my dr asks me to call a specialist he knows and get a second opinion. The second I get off the phone I hysterically call Roger. I don’t think he even understood one thing I said. Literally hysterical to the point where I was hyperventilating thinking omg I did something so horrible to my daughter?
I call the specialist and beggggggg for them to see me the following day. They said they can fit me in because they wouldn’t want any mother to have to wait (when I mean these people were sweet… They were SUPER sweet!!!!) So the following day I go and Rogers with me trying to keep my nerves down. They tell me this happens to about 1-2% of pregnancies. It’s called choroid plexus cyst and over time the cyst should go away. Honestly I was happy but still my heart felt heavy. And even though I know I did nothing to cause it I felt guilty and so helpless. Such a horrible feeling….
So as the doctor is finishing up he notices something else… Ummm are you serious?! He says it looks like you have a low lying placenta and we need to be cautious until the next visit so no bleeding occurs… Okay?! What do you mean by cautious… “Well no sex” he says. I literally burst out laughing hysterically. Roger swears I paid him to say lmao. So now no sex for a Month!!!
Fast forward to this checkup which brings me to 25 weeks aka six months. My daughters cyst went away!!!!!! Also my placenta is higher so I’m no longer at risk (don’t tell roger)… And here is my beautiful angel!
While she may hate the condition of being el prego, JWoww looked stunning at the MTV Movie Awards over the weekend.
