In a new essay penned for Glamour, The Big Bang Theory’s Melissa Rauch both announced her pregnancy and revealed her past miscarriage.
“One of the most profound sorrows I have ever felt in my life” – On her previous miscarriage
Undoubtedly, the star (otherwise known as Bernadette) opened herself up in a profound way, exhibiting a level of bravery most will never rival. Her goal, it seems, is to ensure other women experiencing infertility struggles do not feel alone.
While Rauch is now expecting her first child with husband Winston Rauch, she said simply announcing the happy news would feel fraudulent. Instead, she chose to offer the good along with the bad.
“Here is the only statement regarding my pregnancy that doesn’t make me feel like a complete fraud,” she wrote.
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.”
