Tamra Barney revealed last year she was going to become a grandmother for the first time. Unfortunately, the experience hasn’t gone smoothly. According to Radar Online, Rodriguez is having a tough pregnancy, “and the couple’s unborn child has been battling a slew of health issues.”
“This has been a very tough pregnancy for Sarah [Vieth, Tamra’s daughter-in-law],” Barney revealed to Rumorfix’s Real Mr. Housewife. “First, an ultrasound showed one of the babies kidneys was not developing [a condition called pelvic kidney]. Luckily, with that, everything turned out to be OK.”
Although the Vieth family appeared to be out of the woods, things took another turn for the worse a short while later.
“Everything was going smoothly until the last week when Sarah started having contractions early. She went to the hospital with contractions three minutes apart. The doctor has been giving her medicine to stop them and steroid shots to help develop Ava’s lungs. She is at 34 weeks and baby Ava [Tamra’s unborn granddaughter] could risk having underdeveloped lungs and low birth weight. We are hoping the doctors can keep her cooking until 37 weeks.”
At this point, Tamra Barney and her family can’t to much other than wait.
“Sarah is on bed rest and Ryan is working and taking care of the kids on his off time.”
Tamra Barney first announced Sarah’s pregnancy in July 2014 during an episode of Watch What Happens Live.
“I’m going to be ‘Tam-ma. NeNe has Glam-ma and Vicki has Nana and I’m going to be Tam-ma! I’m so excited!”
She also shared the news on Instagram.
“Confirmed…it’s a Girl. Very excited to meet her #feb14.”
Last month, as E! News reported, Tamra Barney threw Sarah a Western-themed baby shower in Orange County. In an interview, as the Inquisitr reported, Two Wild and Crazy Gals’ party planners Emily Simpson and Shireen Burgan spoke of the celebration.
“Tamra requested a shabby chic country theme for the baby shower for her soon to be granddaughter, Ava. We completely transformed Cut Fitness. Tamra made a beautiful toast, thanking all family and friends for sharing in the celebration. She expressed her love for her entire family, emphasizing how incredibly proud she is of Ryan and Sarah and how much she is looking forward to meeting her granddaughter, Ava Ryan, very soon.”
Tamra Barney is expected to return to The Real Housewives of Orange County for its upcoming season, although it has yet to be confirmed.
