Mike Sorrentino and his wife Lauren Sorrentino opened up about their recent miscarriage and how they are dealing with it. They have committed to sharing and inspiring people in a similar situation to be positive and optimistic.
Jersey Shore star Mike Sorrentino and wife Lauren revealed on Good Morning America‘s third hour Strahan, Sara, and Keke about experiencing miscarriage and the situation that follows. Lauren conceived the day Mike finished his jail sentence of eight months in September for tax fraud. She was seven weeks pregnant when she lost her baby. The couple has decided to open up about this rough phase they are going through so that others undergoing the same situation don't feel that they are alone.
“It was the most traumatic thing I’ve ever experienced in my life, and I think also for Mike, because he was seeing me suffer and he didn’t know how to take it away,” told Lauren. They had never faced such a situation earlier, but they are going strong and have high hopes from the future. “We’re definitely trying again,” Sorrentino shares. They are waiting for it to happen soon and would consider it as a “blessing."
The couple miscarried at their home when Lauren felt that something was wrong and rushed to the hospital. “I had a feeling it was happening and sure enough, at maybe 5 o’clock or 6 o’clock in the morning, it happened,” he recalls. “We were sort of panicking and then I immediately texted [my costars] Jenni [‘JWoww’ Farley], Snooki [Nicole Polizzi] and Deena [Cortese]. I was like, ‘What do I do?’" They then asked them to move to the doctors immediately. In the hospital, they came to know about the miscarriage and that it's very common.
After the incident, Lauren took about two weeks to settle and then decided that she was not going to let people suffer in isolation, like her. She chose not to wait until she conceived her ‘rainbow baby' but rather shared her story; instead, she wants people to know right now and support her so that she can heal soon.
In order to recover, Mike questioned himself on how they regained their previous addiction or handled prison. "Those were all uncertain times and difficult situations, so we sort of went back to the one-day-at-a-time thing. We went back to relying on our faith and supporting each other,”he explained.
The Sorrentino couple works as recovery advocates for Banyan Treatment Centers. The treatment center emphasizes on providing treatment programs for drugs and alcohol addiction. Mike has battled a prescription painkiller addiction four years ago but is sober now. Like the other times, we wish the couple fights all odds successfully and gets the good news soon.
