Brave YouTuber, WaitingforBaby, put herself out there in the most vulnerable way possible. She was 10 weeks along in her pregnancy when she went to the doctor for a routine ultrasound. Unfortunately, the doctors were unable to detect a heartbeat and think that baby had passed recently.
Obviously this news came as a devastating blow. She and her husband have been trying to have a baby for quite some time and unfortunately this is their third miscarriage. In another video she told us she suffers from Compound Heterozygous MTHFR, a rare genetic condition that can cause miscarriages. She says she also has Hughes Syndrome, which leads to blood clotting that can also contribute to miscarriages.
Despite her health issues, they are not giving up their hope for a baby! This brave and strong woman has been documenting her pregnancy journey from the first time she found out she was pregnant, through the subsequent three miscarriages.
This kind of loss is so heartbreaking and unimaginable to women who have never been through it. She made this video in hopes to heal herself, encourage other women who might be going through the same thing, and to ask for prayers and support for herself as well.
Her tears and sadness are truly heartbreaking to watch, but her faith, positivity and perseverance are so inspiring. If I was going through the same thing and saw this video, my hope would be restored.
Statistics show that up to 25% of pregnancies might end in a miscarriage. It’s something that’s more common than most people think. Hopefully this video will inspire and uplift others, and hopefully WaitingforBaby can find the prayers and solace to stay strong.
Please watch her touching and inspiring words and SHARE with loved ones.
