Pregnant Carrie Underwood reveals how she coped with three miscarriages - in two years.

She's a fighter

September 17 2018

US country superstar Carrie Underwood has revealed that she suffered three miscarriages in the last two years. 

The singer, who shares son Isaiah, 3, with hockey player husband Mike Fisher and has a baby on the way, spoke candidly about her heartbreaking fertility struggles in an interview on CBS Sunday Morning.

She revealed, 'I’d kind of planned that 2017 was, you know, going to be the year that I work on new music, and I have a baby.'

 

'We got pregnant early 2017, and didn’t work out.'

After suffering a second miscarriage in 2017 and then a third in 2018, Underwood said 'at that point, it was just kind of like, ‘Okay, like, what’s the deal? What is all of this?''

'I had always been afraid to be angry,' Underwood added.

'Because we are so blessed. And my son, Isaiah, is the sweetest thing. And he’s the best thing in the world. And I’m like, ‘If we can never have any other kids, that’s okay, because he’s amazing.’ And I have this amazing life. Like, really, what can I complain about? I can’t. I have an incredible husband, incredible friends, an incredible job, an incredible kid. Can I be mad? No.'

Following her heartbreaking pregnancy journey, Underwood also suffered a terrible fall last November. Underwood tripped on the steps outside her Nashville home as she was taking her dogs out, suffering injuries that led to 40-50 stitches in her face and surgery on her broken wrist.

Reflecting on that, Underwood said, 'It was…a very soul-searching year for me.

'There were some personal things that happened. And I had the accident and all of that to get through…and just life. Life is full of ups and downs, and I might have had a few more downs than ups last year.'
