Carmella, a WWE star, has lost another pregnancy. This happened just one month after she had a miscarriage. On Monday, Leah Van Dale, who goes by the stage name Carmella, posted a picture of herself in a hospital bed.
In the caption, she said, “I’ve gone back and forth with myself” about whether or not she should talk about her loss, “because I’m not looking for any sort of sympathy.”
October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month, so she thought it would be a good idea to share the post.
“Today, I was treated for an ectopic pregnancy,” she wrote. ” I never thought something like this would happen to me, especially after suffering from an early miscarriage in September.”
An ectopic pregnancy is rare. It happens when a fertilized egg implants outside of the uterus, sometimes in a fallopian tube. The Mayo Clinic says these pregnancies “can’t proceed normally” because “the fertilised egg can’t survive, and the growing tissue may cause life-threatening bleeding, if left untreated.”

Continued Carmella: “Nothing can prepare you for this news after getting a positive pregnancy test. I was cautiously optimistic this time around after the early loss I had already experienced, but was hoping for the best.”
On Saturday, after the athlete had been in the emergency room for 12 hours, she said, “I started to experience some sharp pains on my left side.”
“After several tests and ultrasounds,” she said, “I was given the devastating news that this was, in fact, an abnormal pregnancy.”
She said that she wanted to tell her story because it could be “isolating” to go through what she did.

“Why doesn’t anyone ever talk about this?” she asked before praising Iliza Shlesinger for talking about her miscarriage in her Netflix comedy special Hot Forever, which Carmella and her husband, professional wrestling commentator Corey Graves, recently watched.
“I immediately burst into tears,” Carmella wrote of watching the special. “She went on to explain that we should be speaking more openly about this topic so we, as women, don’t blame ourselves and think there’s something wrong with us. I want to do the same.”
The professional wrestler made it clear that she doesn’t want to be seen as a “statistic” and that she isn’t “looking for sympathy.” She said, “I know I’ll eventually recover from all of this mentally, physically, and emotionally.”

Ending with a message for those who can relate to her grief, Carmella concluded, “For anyone dealing with ANY type of pregnancy loss, I want you to know your feelings and emotions are valid, there is NOTHING wrong with you and you are not alone. ❤️.”
Carmella’s post was accompanied by encouraging quotes about how to deal with the loss of a pregnancy. One read, “Today is hard and I hurt. Allowing yourself to be honest about this is sometimes the most healing thing you can do in your body.”
