Jamie King had her first son, James Knight, last October, and now she is sharing her personal struggle about conceiving her son. In a picture of a note, the 35-year-old actress writes that she struggled for 8 years and had 5 miscarriages before her pregnancy with James.
She says, "For all the struggling women & moms out there that think they are alone – This is the truth about conceiving my son and struggles after. 8 yrs of pain and undiagnosed PCOS & Endometriosis.
9 doctors until Dr. Randy Harris diagnosed me & saved my life from a severe ectopic, 5 miscarriages, 5 rounds of IVF, 26 IUI's, most with no outcome, 4½ years of trying to conceive, 26 hours of brutal labor, early delivery b/c of sudden preeclampsia, tearing and tearing after the stitches were in once I was home, milk supply issues, painful mastitis, uncontrollable crying while breast feeding, worked until the day before I [gave] birth and went back after 6 weeks after because I was afraid of letting others down."
In this revealing Instagram, she uses hashtag messages and encouraging words to relate to women undergoing similar struggles, “you are not alone”, “I have to be brave to support others” and “real talk terrifies us”.
