“What a day guys. What a week. What a year even. I’m so glad this is finally out. I can finally just share this and not keep it anymore,” Peta said.
She continued, “Just reading everyone’s comments, DMs and personal text messages was overwhelming, to say the least. I am totally amazed by the amount of compassion and love and you guys were just so wonderful, thank you.”
She went on to say that she’s read everyone’s experiences in the messages and comments and “can’t believe how common” miscarriages are.
“[Miscarriage] It’s just not talked about enough and I only noticed that when I started talking myself,” says the dancer.
She said “selfishly” that she wants to keep the conversation going because it helps her heal
Peta said it was so healing for her to open up and hear from all these other women who have had similar experiences.
“Honestly, I want to keep talking about it because it’s helping me — selfishly, it’s healing me as I speak,” Peta said.
She said she hasn’t spoken out about it for a long time because she’s afraid people will be judgmental, but now she’s realized how many people she might be able to help by speaking up.
“I didn’t want to do it because I honestly didn’t want people’s judgment, but then I realized how many people I could actually help by speaking out, and that kind of took over me and just let everything else.” fade,” said Peta.
She added that she normally “would never share that kind of information” because she’s a “pretty private person,” but once she started talking about it, “it was like a faucet.”
“I just couldn’t stop talking because it made me feel so good,” Peta said.
She ended by sending her fans a text note, which reads:
Thanks to everyone who shares their stories with me. I cried all day reading them all. Gosh, I’m blown away by how strong we are as women. I don’t want these moments to define me or “scar” me, but I know that eventually I will heal and be able to accept what is happening, knowing that it is fair to sit in my feelings and sharing this with the world is one of many chapters in my book of life.
Thanks again love you guys. For real. Your support means the world to me.
She also told her followers that the reason she lay down while filming her Instagram story was because she had just had her first egg retrieval surgery.
“I just had my egg retrieval two days ago and it’s been pretty wild and I’ll be sharing everything that led up to this this week, so I’m excited for you to see that journey, but how my stomach is – I came out of the surgery and looked like I was four, five months pregnant, I was so swollen. It was wild,” Peta said.
Indeed this week she shared a few videos shows how she begins hormone injections in preparation for egg retrieval and in vitro fertilization. She told People in her interview that she and Maks went to see a fertility specialist and found that their hormones were completely out of whack.
