In coping with loss or a difficult time, it is important to be present for your emotions and process, but also keep an eye on perspective and joyful moments. This photo, sent to me by a friend just now, was taken 3 years ago today. This is Rafa, I am like 5-6 months pregnant with Leonardo, and Carmen is off to the right. Peaceful, happy, full of love. When I get sad, I like to remind myself that sadness passes like a season. I like to look at my blessings, my happiness, and always remembering that I have so many more good times to look forward to. It is a balance of sitting with grief, as we don’t want to shove it away and not address it…but also not let it cloud how wonderful life is. If you feel cloudy and down, reach out…our communities can remind us that there is sunshine too ?. Lastly, we have built a lovely community here…so much beautiful interaction happens in the comments…so if you need support, please reach out. I am sure an angel here will take your hand ??

Now the mother of four is back to sharing some fitness content on her Instagram but says she’s taking it easy. On Monday, Baldwin shared a video of herself doing a few stretches.

She wrote:

I’m being super gentle with my body right now, considering what it has just been through…but I start getting stiff and uncomfortable due to lack of my typical movement. Here are some light stretches I turned to today that have helped me, while sticking with my recovery. They feel good and I think you may like them too  #letsmove2019 …and yes: Carmen likes to peek

According to the American Pregnancy Association, some women do experience physical effects while coping with miscarriage. These effects include vaginal bleeding or spotting, change in menstrual cycle, lower abdominal pain, and leaking or discomfort in breasts.

Further, the association says women who’ve experienced a miscarriage may jump back into their daily activities when they feel ready. However, the association recommends speaking with a doctor prior to any rigorous exercise.

I want to share with you that I am most likely experiencing a miscarriage. I always promised myself that if I were to get pregnant again, I would share the news with you guys pretty early, even if that means suffering a public loss. I have always been so open with you all about my family, fitness, pregnancies…and I don’t want to keep this from you, just because it isn’t as positive and shiny as the rest. I think it’s important to show the truth…because my job is to help people by being real and open. Furthermore, I have no shame or embarrassment with this experience. I want to be a part of the effort to normalize miscarriage and remove the stigma from it. There is so much secrecy during the first trimester. This works for some, but I personally find it to be exhausting. I’m nauseous, tired, my body is changing. And I have to pretend that everything is just fine—and it truly isn’t. I don’t want to have to pretend anymore. I hope you understand. So, this is what is going on now: the embryo has a heartbeat, but it isn’t strong, and the baby isn’t growing very much. So we wait—and this is hard. So much uncertainty…but the chances are very, very small that this is a viable pregnancy. I have complete confidence that my family and I will get through this, even if the journey is difficult. I am so blessed with my amazing doctor, my dear friends, and my loving family…My husband and my four very healthy babies help me keep it together and have the perspective of how truly beautiful life is, even when it occasionally seems ugly. The luck and gratitude I feel that I am my babies’ mommy, is wonderfully overwhelming and comforting. In your comments, please be kind. I’m feeling a bit fragile and I need support. I’m hoping, that by sharing this, I can contribute to raising awareness about this sensitive topic.

During an interview on the “Today” show, Baldwin spoke out about why she’s choosing to share her journey.

She said:

“I’m feeling okay. This is something that has not been easy, and I understand it. I wanted to come out and speak about it because it’s something so many people deal with, and as women we’re trained to deal with it silently…. I don’t think we have to live with such fear.”

As People reports, the author and her husband, actor Alec Baldwin, 61, share four children: Rafael Thomas, 3, Carmen Gabriela, 5, Romeo Alejandro David, 10 months, and Leonardo Charles, 2. On her Instagram, Baldwin regularly shares happy glimpses into her life as a mom, as well as fitness tips.

She says she’s sharing her current journey with fans in hopes “to normalize miscarriage and remove the stigma from it.”
