Meghan Ory of Hallmark Reveals She Was Pregnant During Filming of the Final Season of Chesapeake Shores
Meghan Ory reflects on a rough start to the final season of Chesapeake Shores. The Hallmark actress, 39, recently revealed on Instagram that she was pregnant with her second child while filming Season 6 of the popular show. Ory stated that she was suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum at the moment.
HG is characterized by extreme nausea and vomiting that severely impairs a woman’s ability to eat or drink and results in significant weight loss. It can begin as early as five weeks into pregnancy and last for weeks or even months, affecting up to 2% of all pregnant women. Kate Middleton and Amy Schumer both have the same problem.
“After six seasons, #chesapeakeshores has come to an end. This season began with #hyperemesisgravidarum and finished with #covid – what a journey! “Thank you so much to our incredible cast and crew for bearing with me while I tried not to barf on anyone,” Ory posted on Instagram, before thanking husband John Reardon for “being my rock.”

“I’ll be due in early October. I’m simply trying to prepare, and I’ve started buying onesies, baths, and baby gear all over again “Before the start of Season 4 of the Hallmark Channel series, she told Parade magazine. “I just want to sleep more because it is one thing that I lost when I had a baby. I’m certain that the second one will be even more difficult.”
