On Wednesday, the second episode of the four-part web series “Mike & Carrie: God and Country” aired. During the episode, Carrie Underwood opened up about having her miscarriages among other things.
On “Mike & Carrie: God and Country,” Underwood, 37, discussed the three miscarriages she suffered in a two-year period. She shared: "It sounds bad when you say it, but it's one of those bad things that [you think] happens to other people, you know what I mean?”
The country music singer confessed that it wasn’t something she ever envisioned herself “having to deal with." Mike Fisher, 39, admitted that they actually managed to conceive very quickly while trying for their second child.
GOING THROUGH MISCARRIAGES
At the time, the couple was already parents to son Isaiah Michael, now 5, who was born in 2015. Underwood’s first two miscarriages occurred "months into" the pregnancies she confessed on the episode called "The Wrestle."
I was bawling
The former professional ice hockey player recalled the stress during that time stating: "You're [asking], 'Why is this happening?' and you don't know why and sometimes you'll never figure out why." Despite the doubts and disappointments, Fisher still had faith they’d have another child.
Underwood recalled one time when her husband told her: "’We're gonna have another baby, and it's gonna be a boy. And his name's gonna be Jacob.'” During their struggle the couple even considered adoption.
When the pair confirmed with their doctor that they’d lost the baby for the third time; the country musician broke down. She recalled reaching out to her only child:
"I just remember not wanting to be by myself, so I went up to Isaiah's room and crawled into bed with him.”
SHE’D HAD ENOUGH
TALKING TO GOD
The singer had a candid conversation with God telling him he could either allow them to have a baby or not, but she refused to “keep going down that road anymore." In the spring of 2018, the couple got pregnant for the fourth time.
