In her 2005 book, she opened up about how she struggled physically and emotionally after her pregnancy loss.
“When the baby was gone, I just didn’t really get over it. Neither did my body. I so throughly convinced my body that it was still pregnant after nine months that I had milk coming from my breasts. I was still fat, I was still grieving, and I had just been told it was very possible I would never be able to have children,” she wrote.
