Oh no. Ashley Salazar has confirmed that she lost her second baby due to a miscarriage. The heartbroken ’16 & Pregnant’ star says that her doctor warned her it was going to happen, and that there was nothing she could do to prevent it. How sad.
Ashley Salazar Suffers Miscarriage
This is so incredibly sad.
Just over a month after announcing that she was expecting her second child, Ashley is now confirming that she lost the baby due to an unavoidable miscarriage.
“It has been really hard,” Ashley told Radar Online, revealing she is “really, really disappointed and upset.”
Ashley was so excited to be pregnant for a second time with her boyfriend, Justin, and had started sharing selfies of her growing baby bump on social media.
“We had been really excited about having another baby, but learning that it wasn’t happening so early was a blessing I guess. We were crying and upset and hurt.”
This would have been the couple’s second child, but the first one they were able to keep and raise as their own.
The couple are infamous for their emotional decision to give up their first baby, Callie, for adoption during their time on MTV’s 16 & Pregnant.
Thankfully, doctors have told Ashley that in a few months she will be able to try getting pregnant again.
Ashley’s Pregnancy Was Doomed From The Start
According to Ashley, she knew at the eight week mark that something was off about her pregnancy.
“I was prepared [for the worst], because at my eight-week checkup the doctor told me I was only measuring at six weeks.”
Later, Ashley’s doctor explained that she suffered from a “blighted ovum.” This means that her fertilized egg implanted inside the uterus, but was not developing.
Ashley and Justin turned to each other for support during the difficult time, and decided to have a D & C procedure.
Hopefully these two are successful when they start trying again in a few months. We would love to see them finally have a baby of their own together.
