Maxwell Alston Sutter in US Magazine

Here he is! Maxwell Sutter was born on July 27th, four weeks early, weighing 5 pounds, 3 ounces. He is introduced to the world in an elaborate photo spread put together by US Magazine.

After struggling to conceive for two years, the couple opened up to the magazine about the challenges they faced in getting pregnant.

“EPT sent me about 100 pregnancy tests, and I discovered I was pregnant with the very last one.”

In her nineth month doctors found protein in her urine and tested the reality star for preeclampsia, a potentially fatal hypertensive disorder that typically occurs toward the end of a pregnancy.

“I was terribly nauseous and in a lot of pain,” she says.

Trista was diagnosed with HELLP syndrome (a complication of preeclampsia). “The risks are seizures and coma, so they kept me overnight for observation,” Trista explains. “I can’t remember much of the next day. My liver was failing. The only cure for HELLP syndrome is to have the baby, so they induced me.”

After six hours Trista’s levels kept getting worse. “I knew something was wrong when the doctor looked worried.” Ryan tells Us, “They said there was a chance her liver could rupture. They were trying to get us to make a comfortable decision to go with a C-section. Eventually we said if Trista’s health is deteriorating and we’re jeopardizing the baby’s health, then do what you have to do.”
