'The Bachelor' Alum Ashley Spivey Suffered a Miscarriage With Husband Steve Hunsberger

Updated On 21 May, 2019 Published On

Opening about a loss! Ashley Spivey has just revealed that she and her husband Steve Hunsberger have recently suffered a miscarriage.

The Bachelor alum, 34, took to Instagram on Thursday, May 16, to confirm the sad news.

Alongside a sonogram image, she wrote, "I found out VERY early that I was pregnant."

She then added,

I took a test before the end of my missed period bc Steve [Hunsberger] and I were trying and Steve was sure that I was (bc i had been very emotional for the previous week). He was correct on both points. However, in terms of my body, I in no way felt pregnant. If we weren’t trying, I would have thought that my period was just late from traveling.

The reality star continued,

This was a very wanted pregnancy. Steve and I are both ready for a family. However, it was not meant to be this time. While the doctor spotted the fetal pole cardiac activity at 6 weeks, on Monday (8 weeks) with my sis and Steve in the room we received some bad news — the embryo actually had shrunk and the doctor concluded that I was experiencing a miscarriage.

Here's the post, check it out.

For the past couple of weeks, you might have noticed a lot of pro-choice and pro-abortion viewpoints on my account. What you may not know (my close family and friends did) is that I was pregnant. I found out VERY early that I was pregnant. I took a test before the end of my missed period bc Steve and I were trying and Steve was sure that I was (bc i had been very emotional for the previous week). He was correct on both points. However, in terms of my body, I in no way felt pregnant. If we weren’t trying, I would have thought that my period was just late from traveling I couldn’t even see my doctor until I was 6 weeks pregnant, and even then we left the doctors office in shock that what was showing up on the ultrasound was what legislators are fighting over in these so called “heartbeat” bills and bans. Don’t get me wrong. This was a very wanted pregnancy. Steve and I are both ready for a family. However, it was not meant to be this time. While the doctor spotted the fetal pole cardiac activity at 6 weeks, on Monday (8 weeks) with my sis and Steve in the room we received some bad news - the embryo actually had shrunk and the doctor concluded that I was experiencing a miscarriage. This is not a post for sympathy. Miscarriages are common and I know the stats. I feel grateful to live in state that will not question me about my miscarriage or launch an investigation into what exactly caused me to miscarry, and possibly prosecute me if i did something that unknowingly caused the miscarriage. I feel grateful that I could choose not to prolong this miscarriage and have a d&c procedure. I feel grateful that my doctor can not be prosecuted for helping me to rid myself of my miscarriage. These bans are not just about abortions - they will also affect women who suffer miscarriages. None of this is ok. I have had an abortion and I have had a miscarriage. I have bodily autonomy and the women of this country deserve the same. Donate your time, effort, and money to organizations like @prochoiceamerica @yellowfund @plannedparenthood @whoohio @napawf @aclu_nationwide if you are just as scared and pissed off as I am.
