Amid reports the ‘Teen Mom 2’ star suffered a miscarriage at just 8 weeks along in her pregnancy, experts reveal to EXCLUSIVELY that severe stress in Jenelle’s life could have been a contributing factor. Read on for more exclusive details.

Pregnant Jenelle Evans was rushed to the hospital on Jan. 25 after suffering from excessive bleeding — and reports quickly surfaced that she had lost the baby she had been carrying for eight weeks. Medical experts tell EXCLUSIVELY that suffering from a miscarriage is rather common during the first trimester — and the severe stress in Jenelle’s life could also have played a role.

“Stress can certainly contribute to a miscarriage,” Dr. Linda Burke-Galloway, OGBYN, tells exclusively.  “If you are in a constant state of stress while the egg is trying to settle in the uterine lining, then it can contribute to a miscarriage.”

Jenelle Evans Asks Courtland Rogers For Divorce

Jenelle has certainly been dealing with a lot of stress in her personal life. Ever since Jan. 21 when Jenelle accused her husband Courtland Rogers — who was the father of her unborn baby — of cheating on her, they have been involved in a series of explosive arguments, and Jenelle even said she was going to ask for a divorce.

“I am getting a divorce, ASAP. YOU F—ING LEAVE OUT OF TOWN AND I MIGHT BE HAVING A MISCARRIGE?! F–K U, U F—ING PIECE OF S—T,” she tweeted on Jan. 23 after returning from the hospital. Even though Jenelle didn’t have a miscarriage then, reports alleged that she did lose the baby two days later.

“Jenelle lost the baby this morning,” the source told on Jan. 25. “She’s sad and upset, but she’ll make it through.”

Dustin R. T. Sullivan tells EXCLUSIVELY that she hasn’t filed for divorce yet — but she has been staying with ex-fiance Gary Head, who was the one who was with her at the hospital on Jan. 25.

Losing the baby during the first trimester (the first three months of a pregnancy) is also extremely common. “One in four women miscarry in their first trimester,” Dr. Erika Nichelson, OBGYN, reveals to

She also says extreme bleeding is common in a miscarriage — and Gary, with whom Jenelle has been staying and who took her to the hospital, said that she was covered in blood.

“With @PBandJenelley_1at the hospital. Hopefully she gets better. I think I’m about to vomit or faint,” Gary tweeted on Jan. 25. “All this blood. I’m surprised she’s still standing. I’m surprised I’m still standing.”

So sad. We hope Jenelle makes a healthy and fast recovery.
