“As my followers I guess you know me pretty well. It was in fact your messages about my bad skin change, my heavy curry intake, random food and hormones that made me check… I was pregnant,” the actress revealed.
“We only told close friends and family as wanted to wait till the 12 weeks safety mark even though I thought of course it would all be fine. I was so happy. Unfortunately I started getting pains and was under the hospital were they were keeping a close eye on on me.”
“Scans and lots of bloods later I had the dreaded phone call of the hospital saying that my levels were dropping drastically, and sadly my pregnancy is no more. Then it was just the waiting game to start bleeding and loose what I dreamt about and was so happy about.”
“I finally thought I had my happy ending. That’s why I’ve been quiet and today the dreaded pains and bleeding has begun, it makes it all real now that it’s over 😢”
Stephanie shares a son named Caben-Albi with her ex Jeremy McConnell.
She continued: “I made this video that Ol and Cath actually had a good laugh at at the time when my hormes were all over the pace, it gave them a good laugh watching me watch it on repeat sobbing with my hormones watching it over and over lol, but I loved it.”
“My hormones were all over the place while I sat and re watched it over and over crying happy tears. I wanted to end the video telling Caben he was going to have a brother or sister but we never got that far…”
“I was so excited to finally get to enjoy very second of my pregnancy and it be a happy thing, I never thought I’d have the strength to go through another pregnancy as with Caben it was a horrific traumatic time, but I guess you heal and I couldn’t wait to have my happy ever after with Oliver and Caben and our baby.”
“I feel all over the place right now and know I was early but it still hurts. I seen my whole future ahead of me and had my hand on my stomach every day. Just feel so lost right now and my hormones are understandably all over the place.”
