Alex Gonzaga opened up about the miscarriage she had recently.
In an Instagram post today October 17, Alex shared that she had a blighted ovum.
"Hi. 2 months ago we found out that I was pregnant and 3 weeks ago, we got a heartbreaking news that we might be having an anembryonic pregnancy (blighted ovum). Our doctor advised us to wait for the process to naturally take its course," Alex wrote.
According to mayoclinic.org, an anembryonic pregnancy "occurs when an early embryo never develops or stops developing, is resorbed and leaves an empty gestational sac."
Though she and husband Mikee Morada were just waiting for the pregnancy to conclude, Alex said that they were still hopeful that an embryo would appear. But just last week, her pregnancy ended.
"So we had to wait for a while for the pregnancy to finally end before we can tell our story. The waiting and praying tested our faith and there were a lot of crying. Everyday we were clinging on to a miracle that an embryo would still appear but last Tuesday (October 12), the Lord’s will prevailed and we finally closed the book of our first pregnancy," she stated.
The actress-singer said that she is sharing their story to provide hope to couples who are experiencing the same situation.
"We share our story to give hope that in the midst of this pain and loss the Lord will always sustain you. To any couple who’s going through this or who might go through this pain, don’t ever lose hope. It’s not your fault this happened," she said.
Alex added, "At your own pace you can start to grieve and heal. Mikee and I held on to our Lord Jesus to prepare and help us accept our situation. He blessed us with a kind of LOVE that is ready to understand. We know that in His perfect time He will bless us with our ultimate desire. To our baby whom we almost had, thank you for giving mommy and daddy joy even for a short span. Lastly, thank you to everyone who gave us time to heal."
