Mackenzie Douthit Shares Devastating Pregnancy News

Mackenzie Douthit of Teen Mom 3 fame has a beautiful little family that includes her 3-year-old son Gannon, daughter Jaxie, 1, and husband Josh McKee. But the 20-year-old recently revealed the pain and guilt she felt after suffering a miscarriage shortly after she gave birth to Jaxie.

Douthit reportedly told Wetpaint she quickly became pregnant again after she had her daughter and that she was happy because she and Josh want to grow their family. Sadly, she suffered a miscarriage and, like a lot of women, felt the burden of blame on top of it. Here's what she had to say about it:

After Jaxie, I got pregnant again and lost the baby. That has been really emotionally hard on me because I felt like it was my fault ... but my doctor said it wasn't my fault. It's hard not to blame myself, but if I could take away this pain, then I think we would have more.

Douthit, who suffers from Type 1 diabetes, has had health scares in the past — doctors even believed she could slip into a coma during labor. Fortunately, her first two pregnancies were free of complications, but her recent miscarriage has proven so emotional for her that she says she and Josh are even considering a vasectomy. The reality star admits she is torn about the decision, but that she's scared to try and get pregnant again because she fears losing another baby.

I applaud Douthit for being honest about her miscarriage — her story and emotions about it will help countless other women who have experienced the same loss. Whatever she decides to do is obviously the best call for her and her family, but I hope her dreams of having more children come true if that's what she ultimately decides she wants.

What do you think about Mackenzie's decision to reveal that she had a miscarriage?
