The former gymnast posted a YouTube vid today in which she opened up about her recent miscarriage. Johnson revealed that it all happened really fast – in about 48 hours – time during which she went through multiple emotions, such as happiness, fear and then sadness.
That being said, she explained that she and her husband Andrew East found out they were expecting without even planning it and it was a pleasant surprise.
Just hours after, the happiness turned into a painful feeling as they found out the gymnast had a miscarriage.
In the beginning of the vlog, Johnson shows her fans multiple positive pregnancy tests, sharing her excitement about telling her husband the big news.
However, later in the clip, at the hospital, we find out that an ultrasound showed no gestational sac and bleeding insider her uterus.
Turns out that the 25-year-old simply naturally miscarried six weeks along.
Johnson and East, who got married in April of 2016, wanted to share the experience as they knew many people go through tragic situations like this and they could relate.
Later on, they also had a Facebook Live chat with people and answered questions about the experience.
‘We know everything happens for a reason. We believe God has got a bigger plan for us. All we can do is be positive, otherwise we just sink into a hole,’ Johnson said.
