Dylan Dreyer, 'Today' Show Meteorologist, Opens up about Her Miscarriage

Dylan Dreyer, the TV meteorologist best known for “Today,” revealed during the show that she had a miscarriage while trying to have a second child.

The “Today” show has been filled with baby news. Not only Hoda Kotb adopted a girl but also Jenna Bush Hager announced she is pregnant with her third child.

Unfortunately, not all news are positive. Dreyer, who has been married to Brian Fichera from 2012, said that they had been trying to conceive a second child for six months before trying to get their doctor’s help.

One of the things that concerned Dreyer and Fichera the most was how quickly she got pregnant with her two-year-old son Calvin, so it was surprising that they had struggled so much the second time.

Sadly, she was diagnosed with secondary infertility, a term to describe the “inability to become pregnant or carry a second baby to term after previously giving birth to a baby,” explained Mayoclinic.

Even though several aspects can cause secondary infertility, Dreyer said that her case was a “very low egg count.” Apart from that, she had scarring on her uterus due to the emergency C-section she underwent with Calvin.

The meteorologist underwent a procedure to clear the scar tissue, and she got pregnant quickly. However, five weeks later, she suffered the miscarriage and her dreams of enlarging her family were shattered.

“I’m devastated, and I have to go to work on the ‘Today’ show and be happy and smiling and pretend like nothing’s wrong. We push [emotions] down and get through the show. I go to the doctor and they do an ultrasound. The baby’s still in there. It’s fluke bleeding,” Dreyer said, tearing up.

Even though her tragic news is shocking, she pointed out that her sadness would never affect Hager's exciting news.

"This is my world. My sadness doesn’t take away from anyone else’s happiness, and my sadness isn’t minimized because someone else has a happier situation,” Dreyer added.

Dreyer and Fichera will not give up, though, and they are ready to pursue in vitro fertilization.
