Jenelle Evans didn’t lie to MTV about being pregnant, explains pregnancy timeline

Jenelle Evans David Eason pregnancy scene timeline

This week’s episode of Teen Mom 2 has Jenelle Evans once again having to defend herself in the face of MTV editing. The scene in question was actually her preview clip this week and featured the MTV camera crew confronting her and boyfriend David Eason about whether or not she is pregnant. Jenelle denies being pregnant, but Co-Executive Producer Kristen shares Flip Cam footage of her and David riding in the car together and having a conversation which clearly indicates they just found out she is pregnant again. Jenelle continues to deny that she is pregnant as the MTV crew makes a joke and laughs.

In addition, Jenelle’s mother Barbara is shown later in the episode finding out about Jenelle’s pregnancy after the police accident report was released online revealing Jenelle was at least ten weeks pregnant at the time.

Confusing matters even more, some fans believe that the different segments for each of the moms are filmed at the same time, so given the fact that Chelsea is due after Jenelle, then clearly she must have been pregnant in that scene. Of course, the moms’ segments shown in each episode are rarely filmed at the same time, and some of the individual moms’ segments weren’t even filmed at the same time. (That was actually the case with Jenelle and her mother in this episode, but more on that in a minute.)

I’m guessing Jenelle had been told to keep quiet about what was really going down by MTV because she pretty much bit her tongue throughout the week. (The gag order makes sense given that the cast members are not allowed to give away anything about what is coming up on the show, from what I understand.) But this week’s episode was just too much for Jenelle and she took to Twitter to clarify how it was that she wasn’t lying about being pregnant in that scene, despite being pregnant in the Flip Cam car scene recorded earlier.

Here is Jenelle’s interactions with folks on Twitter and her eventual full explanation:

TWEETER: Why were you lying?

JENELLE: I didn’t… I really wasn’t pregnant. 😑

TWEETER: lol yes you were. You’re due before chelsea so obviously you were already pregnant. Its not a big deal.

JENELLE: But I really wasn’t pregnant…

TWEETER: in the car when David was rubbing ur belly that u guess I were going to have to wear baggy sweatshirts now

JENELLE: Yeah I was pregnant then.. but not in the scene afterwards. I have documentation of everything

TWEETER: why was it in the police report? Sorry, i may have missed that part

JENELLE: Becuz I was pregnant then…

JENELLE: Here’s the deal… April of 2016 I filmed the car cam scene with David and found out at lunch from my Endo. I was pregnant…

Then coming home from lunch the car scene with David was filmed with me not remembering we were recording lol…

A week or few days later we flew out to the reunion, end of April 2016. At that time I had to go see a doctor because I thought it was The time of my month. Saw the OBGYN the Doctors show connected me with in LA. He conducted an ultrasound and told me I was not pregnant.

Once I got home from the reunion MTV came over unexpectedly to congratulate us, but sadly I wasn’t. I didn’t want to explain on camera.

Then I went to Farrah’s birthday in May and even made a post on IG how I wasn’t pregnant if you all remember. Found out I was in June.

After finding out of course I kept it a secret becuz everyone claimed I was already lying but as for my mom she tells everyone everything.

Earlier this week we shared an extensive timeline detailing how Jenelle’s pregnancies were revealed online, and after Jenelle opened up about her miscarriage in August, we did another behind-the-scenes timeline for both of her pregnancies. Using the information above, as well as culling information from both of our previous timelines, here is another one specifically geared to help everyone understand what’s happening in that scene — and in the scenes to come:

April 18ish – Jenelle finds out from her endocrinologist that she is pregnant. Soon after finding out, She and David talk about it while riding in the car — forgetting that the MTV flip cams were recording.

April 23-24 – Teen Mom 2 Reunion taping in Los Angeles. Jenelle is experiencing bleeding and meets with The Doctors‘ Dr. Peter Weiss. Jenelle is told that she is not pregnant. Apparently Jenelle was a bit confused at this point whether she actually had been pregnant at all.

April 25ish – An MTV camera crew “came over unexpectedly to congratulate” Jenelle and David, who denied that she was still pregnant (because she wasn’t). They didn’t discuss it further because they weren’t ready to talk about it on camera yet.

Late April/Early May – Jenelle has it confirmed by her endocrinologist that she was pregnant and suffered a miscarriage.

May 2-13 – According to multiple online conception calculators, based on Jenelle’s due date of January 28, she most likely conceived during this time via the “cheap” condom that burst.

May 13 – A fan photo of Jenelle at a North Carolina Target store surfaces online in which she appears to be sporting a baby bump.

May 13 – The Ashley’s Reality Roundup confirms rumors that Jenelle is currently pregnant.

May 13–August 24 – Jenelle adamantly denies being pregnant.

MAY 20 – Jenelle posts a bikini selfie (above) taken while in Miami to attend Farrah Abraham’s 25th birthday party.

JULY 6 – David Eason is involved in a minor car accident with Jenelle as the passenger.

JULY 15 – A police report surfaces from the automobile accident on July 6 in which the officer reveals that Jenelle “stated that she is at least ten weeks pregnant.” This is the police report that Barbara Evans is seen referencing in this week’s episode.

August 24 – Jenelle announces she is pregnant with a gender reveal photo shoot with David Eason.

There you have it! I have to confess that I FINALLY understand it all in regards to the confusing scene in which it certainly appears that Jenelle and David are lying about her being pregnant.

Now, I can’t wait to see how the rest plays out! New episodes of Teen Mom 2 air Monday nights at 9/8c on MTV.

    Jenelle is such a liar. Lol

    • Jessica

      Actually no. In this situation she is telling the truth. The timelines in which everything was played out make sense. If she was indeed still pregnant from the pregnancy in the car she would have had the baby already. It’s called editing to make for drama. I’m actually going to be siding with Jenelle in this for the first time ever.

      • Alisson Leech

        Jessi I can’t believe you would take up for her after she threw that glass at your head!

        • Jessica

          Because clearly I’m the Jessica on TM.

                Well played old friend, well played.

      • MarvelousBeauty

        I agree. They film for a few days a month and only for a few hours on those days. I’m not one for lying, and as was already stated a lot of lies come out of Jenelles mouth. This time she surprisingly tweeted events that seem plausible. I also feel weird admitting this seems truthful. also taking into account she had a miscarriage the end of September early August last year and had the baby January 28th. She would have had to be pregnant at Farrassholes party. I know it’s Jenelle we’re talking about, but would she have drank while pregnant? I know her morals aren’t so high but that’s just wrong. Thanks for letting me rant on your comment. I felt comfortable because of your editing comment. Reality TV is great and all but the editing process does hurt, all of them, Not just one of them.

        • Alisson Leech

          Jenelle was lying. She explained why she lied on this weeks episode.

      • Alisson Leech

        She was lying. She explained why on this weeks episode.

  • Caty P. :)

    But at some point in this timeline, she used her (clearly pregnant) belly as the Before picture to promote Flat Tummy Tea? Yes? That’s one heck of a lie.

  • Baffled

    How can anyone believe anything this girl says?

  • Poor Kid

    Well she had her baby…. so….

    • Alisson Leech

      She did??

      • ChelseaHouskasEyebrows

        Yes it’s on Instagram and fb.

    I felt so bad for Barb. She was worried about how Jace will feel about this baby. Will he be hurt? He might not now because he’s young. But, when he’s able to understand & watch this show he will see how time & time again his mother chose men over him & continued to lie about Barb “taking him from her”.

    So now Jenelle will have 3 kids with 3 fathers at 24. David will have 3 kids with 3 mothers. Nathan has 2 kids with 2 mothers. None of these 3 have custody of their 1st child. So freakin’ sad. There minds so messed up that they don’t self reflect & think about getting their oldest children or working on the kids they have. Yes, all babies are blessings but it’s sad when you can’t be happy for a pregnancy because you feel bad for the kids that are already here. I really feel bad for Keiser. He’s stuck with Nathan & Jenelle as parents & David as a step parent. Will they treat Keiser differently because the new baby will be David’s? I hope not but they both are verbally abusive & do not have patience. Will Keiser grow up & wonder why no one saved him?

    • Caty P. :)

      Ooof, that’s a sad breakdown of how many kids they all have, & all the different parents / step-parents / grandparents involved. I’m no prude, and there’s no one ‘right’ way to make a family, but this seems like a lot for the kids to handle.

      My hubby has a big extended family with some complicated marriages / divorces / stepmoms / bio-dads / half-siblings. BUT from what I’ve seen, the children are almost always put first. It’s an untraditional family, but in his case, where everyone really loves the kids, it works.

      • LoLo

        I agree. My dad was 1 of 12 so there are many members, marriages, divorces etc. No one is perfect, no family is perfect, everyone has skeletons & family members that stand out. Mine included. But, the fact that 3 of them, 4 if you include Jace’s biological father, all do not have custody of at least 1 child. That’s absurd. Then they make the decision to have another by not using birth control.

  • Murphy

    Shouldn’t the title of this article be “Jenelle CLAIMS she didn’t lie to MTV” since she is lying and 90% of everything she says is a lie?

  • Chewy

    Who cares about this useless roast beef bowl.

  • YourMom

    The Target pic proves nothing. She was, what, a month or so along?? She wouldnt have been showing then. Not saying she wasnt pregnant, but I think she was just fat & wearing not so flattering clothes.
