VANDERPUMP Rules’ star Scheana Shay is pregnant!
She is expecting first child with her boyfriend Brock Honey Davies after having a miscarriage over the summer.
“My doctor told me to wait one period and ovulation cycle and then we could try again. It was the first and only time we tried and I had a feeling right away, but it was so soon to tell because I wasn’t even close to missing my period yet. I just had a feeling.”
She also tweeted: “IT’S ALL HAPPENING APRIL 2021!!! We are expecting our rainbow baby.”
Their happy news followed the couple suffering a miscarriage in June.
The parents to be found out they were expecting while planning a trip to Sedona, Arizona.
They were planning on doing activities such as off-roading. So Scheana took a pregnancy test just to be safe.
Scheana said when the test came back positive she was, “bawling [her] eyes out.”
“I had to know before I missed my period and we went on this trip. We still had an amazing trip, but it just all happened so quickly, which is so exciting but also really scary after having a miscarriage.”
Scheana continued to tell People: “After going through the miscarriage and knowing those signs,” this time, “it was comforting knowing, ‘Okay, you’re not spotting, you’re not cramping, you still feel pregnant, you’re still tired, your boobs still hurt.’ “
“I had to keep convincing myself it’s okay because last time I woke up one day and there’s no other way to explain it, just that I didn’t feel pregnant any more.
“I told my mom that and her heart broke because before my sister, she too had a miscarriage and the same thing — she said she just felt not pregnant one day.”
The mom-to-be went on: “After a miscarriage, I was definitely even more aware of my body, but just so much more cautious and scared …
“I was just too afraid to lift up a 5 lb. weight. I was like, ‘But what if that makes me have a miscarriage?’ “
“It was every little thing, which I’m sure was driving Brock crazy because he’s like, ‘You’re fine!’ But I was just like, ‘I need to make sure, I need to make sure’ — and now we’ve made sure! Everything is good.”
Scheana said for anyone struggling with infertility: “Don’t give up.”
“There’s so many alternative ways: Freeze your eggs, try [in vitro fertilization]. If that doesn’t work, there’s always adoption; there’s so many kids in foster care who need to be adopted and need homes.
“There’s always a way. If you truly want to be a mom, don’t give up.”
