Katie Lowes on Having a Miscarriage

She was three months into her pregnancy when doctors couldn't find her baby's heartbeat during a check-up, but Scandal actress Katie Lowes wasn't giving up, remembering she wanted to "Olivia Pope the situation" and "fix it." In a recent episode of her Shondaland podcast, Katie's Crib, the actress detailed her painful memories of miscarrying before welcoming her now-7-month-old son, Albee.

"Let's make the schedule, let's get to the hospital, let's get the [dilation and curettage]," Katie said of that tragic time, adding that she instantly asked, "When can I start trying again?"

It's her first time opening up about this gut-wrenching loss and the whirlwind of emotions that followed. According to People, in the podcast about motherhood, Katie explained that following her bounce-back attitude upon hearing the news, reality soon set in, and it was devastating.

"As soon as it set in that I'd had a miscarriage, what happens is you have a major hormonal drop-off," Katie shared. "And I think I was massively sad for about three months, and I was only pregnant for three months." Katie and husband Adam Shapiro didn't give up hope, and they welcomed a baby boy in October 2017. Check out a clip of the podcast below.
