Lauren Burnham Luyendyk is on the mend after being hospitalized for severe mastitis.
The former Bachelor candidate, 29, is back home and "feels a lot better," said her husband, Bachelor star Arie Luyendyk Jr., on Instagram.
"My bb @laurenluyendyk is at home and is feeling much better ❤️" he captioned a photo of Lauren with her newborn twins Senna James and Lux Jacob, who arrived on June 11th. “Thanks for all the good wishes! The family is together again! "
Lauren also posted a video about her snuggly Lux on her Instagram story and headed the post, "At Home, Where I Can Cuddle Those Little Pumpkins."

The mother of three went to the hospital Thursday night after developing mastitis in her breasts, which "kept getting worse even on antibiotics," Arie explained last week. The disease, an inflammation of the breast tissue that can often occur while breastfeeding, is caused by blocked milk ducts and bacteria entering the breasts.

If mastitis is not treated early enough, it can "lead to a collection of pus (abscess) in the chest," which "usually requires surgical drainage," according to the Mayo Clinic.
Arie shared photos of Lauren lying in a hospital bed, her "wild" x-rays, and vials of "so much blood." that doctors had pulled from the reality star.
"Hate this for her," Aria wrote, later adding, "She will be here overnight. IV antibiotics and scans for every abscess. She's been through a lot this week."
And on Friday, Lauren announced that she was "so much better" even though she was still in the hospital.

The Luyendyks have spent many days in the hospital in the past two months between Lauren's mastitis and the birth of the twins. While Lux was able to go home and "only spent a few hours in the neonatal intensive care unit" after his arrival, Senna "needed oxygen" and spent eight days in the hospital after she was born.

But Senna surprisingly arrived home just before Father's Day.
"Best present for early Father's Day, our baby is at home!" Arie wrote in an Instagram post on June 19. "Lauren surprised me this morning when she came home with her from the hospital."
