Laura Govan has been out of the limelight lately, and for good reason. The reality star recently told Instagram fans that she suffered a miscarriage.
“I wanted to share something with U guys and why I’ve been out of the loop, well #NRealLife for the past three months I’ve been sick, and extremely exhausted and about a month ago I found out that I was pregnant with my 5th baby,” shared the star.
Govan went on to tell fans that she thought such conception was impossible, and that her joy soon turned to sorrow when she miscarried. “Unfortunately, I had a miscarriage,” said the celebrity. “When it happened I didn’t want to talk about or deal with it, but now I’m ready to get my life back on track!”
In wanting to get her life “back on track,” Laura asked fans to journey with her as she attempts to lose fifteen pounds that she gained during her short expectancy. The star also sought to make subscribers aware of the reality of miscarriage. “This is something REAL that happens every day to women like you and me,” said Govan.
Nearly twenty percent of pregnancies end with miscarriages that typically occur within the first twelve weeks of expectancy. Unfortunately, many women are oblivious to the symptoms of miscarriage that include bleeding, fever, and severe abdominal pain. Expectant women who experience such symptoms should seek medical attention immediately.
