While this was the first time Jenna has spoken about her miscarriage, she has gotten candid with followers about her road to motherhood before.
Jenna has spoken about her road to motherhood before. Days after confirming her pregnancy in July, the dancer shared a video of the moment she learned they were expecting baby Rome.
“We had actually stopped trying to conceive for about 6 months to mentally/emotionally give ourselves a break…” she captioned the Instagram post, “so the shock, disbelief, and sheer joy in this moment is a memory I will never forget.”
And while sharing the happy moment, she noted that it came after a difficult fertility journey.
“I want to keep this moment very positive because there is so much to celebrate and my heart is overflowing with gratitude, BUT our journey getting to this point wasn’t an easy one,” she continued. “I remember watching people share these videos and aching because I wished so badly I could experience that joy. After two years of infertility, and hundreds of negative tests after negative tests, it was heart wrenching at times to stay optimistic and made me question whether I would ever have this opportunity.”
Jenna also sent a message to anyone else experiencing fertility struggles, adding, “It may not happen on your timeline and the journey may rip your heart open at times, but don’t give up on yourself and your precious baby! It will happen.”
