And though she received the Christmas gift of a positive pregnancy test, her excitement still remains colored with ‘anxiety’ after two pregnancy losses.
‘I’ve experienced loss and to go through that pain of losing two pregnancies, it just feels like life is over, life is done. You have to go through this intense and really just unbelievably draining and shocking grieving period,’ she said in a March interview with People.
She continued to say: ‘When [you get pregnant again], you’re so afraid to enjoy it and be happy because you’re so scared that it’s going to be taken away. Just because I’m having a pregnancy that’s going well now it doesn’t mean that I’m over losing any pregnancy.’
King added, ‘Every single day of this pregnancy is such a miracle,’ also sharing that she and her fiance have opted to wait to find out the baby’s sex upon arrival.
