“A few weeks ago we discovered that I was pregnant and for those of you who have followed my fertility journey,” she continued, “I did not think that I could become pregnant alone … my doctors told me that it would be almost impossible to become pregnant alone.”
Shay said she had missed her period, before getting “really sick” while celebrating her boyfriend’s birthday. She attributed it to mixing a White Claw with a shot of tequila, in addition to eating too much food, during the trip, but she began to think that she might be pregnant after seeing a tarot card reader.
“I was like, wait. What if a miracle happens?” she said, before five different pregnancy tests told her that she was, in fact, waiting. While talking about breaking the news to Brock via FaceTime, she said, “We weren’t even trying, this is a miracle, I’m so happy. We’re just going crazy, we didn’t know or believe it was possible. . “
Then she had a blood test, she drowned when she said her doctor called her saying, “Congratulations, you’re 2-3 weeks pregnant.” Scheana said she told a couple of close friends and family and that she planned to break the news to her father with a big announcement on Father’s Day, but then she started bleeding.
“Not to be graphic, but I went to the bathroom and there was blood,” he explained. “I know it’s normal to detect in the first trimester.”

She continued to think something was wrong, and said that “it was bleeding all weekend and it wouldn’t stop.” Her doctors put her on progesterone supplements, which stopped the bleeding, but she still had “the feeling” that something was wrong.
An ultrasound confirmed his suspicions.
“My obstetrician took me early and did an ultrasound and there was no heartbeat and there was nothing progressing, nothing growing inside, there were parts he could see beginning to form and just didn’t.” revealed. “So obviously it was devastating. We were so excited. Being excited for a few weeks and then it was gone so fast. It has still been a lot of processing because now I am home and I am just expecting to abort naturally.” “
“Although he was only 6.5 weeks old, that doesn’t make it easier,” he added. “We were still so excited about something that is no longer happening. It has been very, very difficult to understand and I have always been such an open book and I knew I wanted to tell my story the way Dilo wanted.”
“Now it’s a waiting game and it’s literally the worst thing I’ve ever expected in my life because I don’t know when it’s going to happen entirely,” Scheana said. “It is the worst feeling. I know there is nothing wrong with what I did, it happens and it is unfortunate, but it happens. We were ready, we were so ready.”

Scheana also hoped to normalize talking about miscarriages, as they are “common, so many women go through,” and said the whole situation made her realize “I know I want this now more than anything.”
