Model Nell McAndrew reveals her heartache over lost pregnancy

10/16/2005 at 02:30 AM ET

UK Model Nell McAndrew has spoken out about having to end her pregnancy. We reported recently that Nell had complications to her pregnancy that forced her to have it terminated. Nell and husband Paul Hardcastle were three months pregnant when told of severe complications affecting their baby. "I was in shock because I’d been feeling fine. And I’d been looking forward to my bump beginning to show."  Nell is understandably taking the loss very hard, "I am very, very upset – and, yes, I have cried because things haven’t turned out the way I thought they would." She has revealed that they will try for another child once the pain has passed. "We’re going to leave things for a while to settle down, then we’ll try again… At least I now know I can get pregnant And I believe there’s usually a reason why things happen in life"

So sad..I can’t imagine the heartache…

Unfortunately, I CAN imagine Nell McAndrew’s heartbreak. What makes me all the more sad for her though is that her tone almost sounds apologetic (I can also relate to her on that one too).

I wish there was some way I could convey to Ms. McAndrew that if she feels as if someone died, it’s because someone HAS. She has every right to her feelings of grief over the loss of her child, and it is in no way selfish or wrong of her to mourn her baby’s death as if he or she had already been born.

“She has revealed that they will try for another child once the pain has passed.”

I totally agree with mom4bob. I had 2 miscarriages before my daughter was born, and I still think about those babies I lost every day. The pain of losing a child never goes away. It will be 3 years on November 1st since I lost my first baby, and even as I look at my daughter who is 13 months old, I cannot help but wonder what my other babies would have looked and acted like.

Yes, time does help with the pain, but it never totally goes away. I wish them well and hope that once they get over the initial shock, they are able to have a completely normal and successful pregnancy!
