Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry is preparing to give birth any day now, and this time around, it's a bit different than what she's used to.

The mom-of-three opened up about her high-risk pregnancy during today's episode of her Coffee Convos podcast, as reported by US Weekly, admitting that she's at her biggest size ever. "I am at the heaviest weight I’ve ever been — before I got pregnant and then obviously now while I’m pregnant," she explained to co-host Lindsie Chrisley. "So that’s been a little hard, but also I haven’t had any real complications. Like, I just haven’t. My glucose is good. All my stuff is good. So I went into the doctor today and I saw a new doctor."

We're happy to hear Kailyn hasn't faced any complications. Fans of the reality star will know that she wants to have an at-home birth, and she even revealed during a previous Coffee Convos episode that she would like to film it for Teen Mom 2. However, she explained today that it might not be the safest move for her. "This is now the third doctor that’s giving me a different reason for why I should be induced instead of home birth," she stated. "And then on top of it said, 'Because you’re anemic, because you lose more blood with every baby, we wouldn’t want to see you get a blood transfusion.'"

But despite the potential dangers of giving birth at home, Kailyn isn't ready to back down just yet. She explained that she will be going to get another opinion, adding, "I have a 'high-risk doctor' or whatever. The only reason why I’m high-risk at this point is because of my weight, and everything seems to be fine."

At the end of the day, fans don't care where she has the baby—or even if the birth is televised on MTV—as long as Kailyn is safe.
