So thankful for this little one and her daddy.🙏🏻 Our doc appointment didn’t go well today.😢 • I’m devastated. We’ve had a “failed miscarriage.” Our baby formed and there was an amniotic sac, but while the amniotic sac continued to grow the baby stopped at some point.😰 • We had three options. 1) Wait for my body to miscarry our baby naturally. 2) Go to the hospital and have a D&C. 3) Take medication to help my body miscarry quicker. • I really don’t want to have to go to the OR and have a D&C for obvious reasons. I’d love for my body to just naturally take the proper course, but since we don’t know how long that would take and since there’s a small risk for infection I opted to take the medicine and hope and pray it works so I don’t have to have a D&C.🙏🏻 • I can’t thank you all enough for all the love, support, prayers, and encouragement you’ve sent us. You have no idea how much that has helped both @doughehner & I. You guys are the most amazing community of women & men here on instagram & social media and I hope you know how much we appreciate you all.🙏🏻💗 We are so blessed to have such amazing Frans. We love you guys. ❤️ • Spending the rest of the day in bed thanking God from the bottom.of.my.heart for our rainbow baby, @henleygracehehner 👶🏼🌈 Feeling so blessed to have her to hold while my heart aches!🙏🏻 • • #pregnancy #journey #pregnancyloss #awareness #miscarriage #support #momlife #rainbowbaby #momsofinstagram #girlmom #mommyhood #moms #momproblems #pregnancylossawareness #miscarriagesupport #10weekspregnant #1in4 #yourenotalone #angelbaby
She went on to explain that she was given the options of waiting to miscarry fully, naturally; going to a hospital for a D&C procedure now; or taking medication to help the miscarriage proceed quickly.
“I’d love for my body to just naturally take the proper course," she told her followers, "but since we don’t know how long that would take and since there’s a small risk for infection I opted to take the medicine and hope and pray it works so I don’t have to have a D&C."
The couple met and were married on "Married at First Sight" in 2014.
