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.

  • I have miscarried 3 times and now i am in the middle of a blighted ovum. So this makes 4 pregnancy losses in one year for me. My biggest was 16 weeks, there was no heart beat. Im very broken and still hoping to try again. Miscarriage is treated as though we must hush up as to not disturb others around us or freak them out. I have had people whisper to me like it would help! I feel like have been stigmatized and pushed in a corner like i have a disease, but i want to scream out and say my baby was a tiny human that unfortunately no fault of his own just died, thats it, he was a baby, nothing to fear…my baby died but it freaks people around me out. I will always be looked at like her baby died…i want to talk about my son and for him to be recognized as a person…his is ADAM!

  • May be your body needs a chance to rest before attempting another pregnancy. Four unsuccessful in a one year span is a lot. In the old days people did not announce a pregnancy until after 3rd month
    Miscarriages are very common and usually occur in those first trimester. In those days people did not have pregnant tests that could tell you you are pregnant after only a few days so probably many lost pregnancies without even knowing they were pregnant.
