Mackenzie Douthit and husband Josh McKee will welcome their second child, a girl, on Thursday.
Although the former Teen Mom 3 star isn’t due until later this month, her low blood sugar and Type 1 Diabetes have forced her to be induced by doctors and deliver her baby three weeks early.
“Last picture 37 weeks,” Douthit wrote on Instagram on the evening of February 6.
In the photo, Douthit and McKee look to be preparing to settle in before she is induced. McKee, who is sitting in the chair in the corner looks a bit overwhelmed, and Douthit’s blank stare seems to hint that she could be a bit fearful of the events that are to come — and who can blame her?
Having a baby can be scary, and for Douthit, who has been in and out of the hospital since becoming pregnant, having this baby early comes with its challenges.
However, her doctors surely know what they are doing and will make sure to keep Douthit and her daughter in the best of care.
