Shawn Johnsonis on the mend.
In a new video posted to YouTube, the gymnast said to their fans:
“It was a super emotional roller coaster, and one that we never imagined sharing with the world. But we felt like so many people go across it that it was something we wanted to share with you guys. We’ve never posted anything that raw and real before, and it entailed a lot to us.”
While talking about how she felt in the consequences of the the miscarriage, Shawn admitted to feeling a lot of remorse surrounding losing the newborn 😛 TAGEND
“The day I was told we were miscarrying, I felt guilty. I felt sad and I recollect telling Andrew,’ I’m sorry I lost your baby.’ I felt like it was something that I did. I didn’t take care of the newborn well enough, or I was stressed out too much, or I didn’t take the right prenatal vitamins. All these different guilts and thoughts and negative impressions of’ I failed my baby.’ I felt like I was[ uninhabitable ], like,’ No baby’s gonna live inside this belly.'”
In addition to the emotional pain she felt, the athlete said she also experienced severe flu-like symptoms as her body adjusted — which they showed first-hand in the new video.
