'Big Bang Theory' Star Melissa Rauch Announces She's Pregnant After Suffering a Miscarriage
Big Bang Theoryactress Melissa Rauch announced she is officially expecting her first child. But in an emotional essay forGlamourmagazine, she revealed her happy news comes after suffering a miscarriage. Rauch also went on to explain the heartbreak she and her husband Winston Rauch have endured on the road to parenthood.
She started her essay with a spin on the traditional celebrity statement:
"Melissa is expecting her first child. She is extremely overjoyed, but if she's being honest, due to the fact that she had a miscarriage the last time she was pregnant, she's pretty much terrified at the moment that it will happen again. She feels weird even announcing this at all, and would rather wait until her child heads off to college to tell anyone, but she figures she should probably share this news before someone sees her waddling around with her mid-section protruding and announces it first."
Having struggled with fertility issues and experienced a pregnancy loss in the past, Rauch wanted to share her personal experience with mothers who have been through the same heartbreak. "It felt a bit disingenuous to not also share the struggle it took for me to get here," Rauch said.
"Miscarriage is not something that can be mourned or dealt with in the same way as the passing of a loved one you have known for years. It is something all its own, and the struggle that comes with handling the grief and guilt of that loss is not nearly talked about enough," Rauch explains. "I kept waiting for the sadness to lift ... but itdidn't. Sure, I had happy moments and life went on, but the heartbreak was always lurking."
Rauch mentioned that the word "miscarriage" itself is blame-inducing and makes it easy for the mother to guilt herself into thinking she did something wrong during the pregnancy. That, paired with the constant string of questions — such as "When are you having a little one?" and "You're getting up there. So how long until you pop one out?" — make life feel something like what she calls a "Great Baby Inquisition." For Rauch, this only increased the guilt she felt and made her want to push even harder to let women who have been or are currently in the same situation as she was know that they are not alone.
As Rauch looks forward to the birth of her first-born child, she still keeps in her heart the women who have dealt with similarly challenging circumstances. Our pain is something to be worked through until it isn't anymore," she wrote.
