Christina Anstead Gets Support from 'Housewives' as She preps for C-Section

"Flip or Flop" star Christina Anstead is getting ready to evict her tiniest little resident as she prepares for an upcoming C-section.

The mama-to-be posted Friday morning on Instagram alongside a photo of herself resting one hand on a bulging baby bump.

"Well.... Here we go @ant_anstead ... our world is about to get rocked - in all the best ways of course," Anstead wrote while explaining, "One week until my scheduled c-section."

The reality star went into detail to tell fans that, "I chose to do this because I had an emergency c-section with Brayden and the whole experience and recovery was really hard on me physically and emotionally. I really don’t feel comfortable trying to go down that route again."

Brayden James was born in 2016 with Christina and then-husband, Tarek El Moussa, and she explains that, "after pushing for hours and hours - he was just stuck and his heart rate was dropping."

Anstead writes that she and new husband, Ant Anstead, are preparing for a big baby boy, "Based on ultrasound measurements."

She's getting some support from other reality stars, as "Real Housewives of Orange County" veteran Gretchen Rossi was one of the first celebrities to comment on the IG pic.

"Totally feel you girl! Sending you love and prayers through your delivery!" Rossi wrote, weeks after she gave birth to her own baby.

Anstead seems prepared, and tells fans, "The nursery is ready, the kids are back in school, I’m not sleeping, irritable and uncomfortable."

She proclaims, "I’m definitely ready to be done and to meet our little man. One week countdown."
