Bivši ESPN sidro dijeli čestku priču o pobačaju na zraku

Bivši ESPN sidro otvorio je svoj bolan put do majčinstva u zabačenom mjestu, uključujući i njezinu priču o pobačaju dok je domaćin emitiranja uživo za “SportsCenter”.

“Stigao sam u Tuscaloosu gotovo trudno trudno. Ne bih se vratio na isti način”, napisao je sportski novinar Sara Walsh na postu Instagram koji je rezonirao sa ženama posvuda boreći se za neplodnost i pobačaj. “Suprotstavljanje školskih klinaca koje su iza našeg seta, dok sam gubio bebu, bila je surrealna. Bojala sam se, nitko nije znao da sam trudna, pa sam to pokazao dok sam imao pobačaj. gledati kako se to odvija od više od tisuću milja daleko, šaljući mi bolničke mogućnosti tijekom komercijalnih pauze. “

My mother bought them these onesies because she thought they were funny. For us, they're especially poignant. Finding a good egg didn't come easy for me, and I suspect there are many people out there facing the same struggle. • The road down a dark path began while hosting Sportscenter on the road from Alabama. I arrived in Tuscaloosa almost three months pregnant. I wouldn't return the same way. The juxtaposition of college kids going nuts behind our set, while I was losing a baby on it, was surreal. I was scared, nobody knew I was pregnant, so I did the show while having a miscarriage. On television. My husband had to watch this unfold from more than a thousand miles away, texting me hospital options during commercial breaks. • It would get worse. Two more failed pregnancies. More than once, I'd have surgery one day and be on SportsCenter the next so as not to draw attention to my situation. We then went down the IVF road of endless shots and procedures. After several rounds, we could only salvage two eggs. I refused to even use them for a long time, because I couldn't bear the idea of all hope being gone. I blew off pregnancy tests, scared to know if it worked. It had. Times two. • It was exciting news, but we knew better than to celebrate. So I spent a third straight football season pregnant, strategically picking out clothes and standing at certain angles, using scripts to hide my stomach. There would be no baby announcement, no shower, we didn't buy a single thing in preparation for the babies, because I wasn't sure they'd show up. We told very few people we were pregnant, and almost no one there were two. For those that thought I was weirdly quiet about my pregnancy, now you know why. • For as long as I can remember I hosted Sportscenter on Mother's Day. The last couple years doing that have been personally brutal. An hours-long reminder of everything that’s gone wrong. Finally, i was so looking forward to doing this show, on this day. But being layed off on maternity leave is just the next challenge I hope to overcome. Instead of being on tv I got to hang with these two good eggs. My ONLY good eggs. And I know how lucky I really am. #twins #ivf #2goodeggs

“Pronalaženje dobrog jaja nije lako za mene”, rekao je Walsh. “I sumnjam da se mnogi ljudi suočavaju s istom borbom.”

Walsh je pretrpio još dva spontanog pobačaja i podsjeća na operaciju jednog dana i pucanja na nju kako bi održao borbu privatnom.

Walsh i njezin suprug, profesionalni bejzbolni igrač Matt Buschmann, okrenuli su se IVF-u i naučili da su liječnici uspjeli spašavati dva jaja.

“Odbio sam ih čak i dugo koristiti, jer nisam mogao podnijeti ideju o nestalnosti nade”, rekao je Walsh. “Otpustila sam test trudnoće, prestrašena da znam da li je to radio, to je bilo.” “Dva puta, bila je uzbudljiva vijest, ali znali smo bolje nego slaviti.”

Walsh dijeli da je skrila trudnoću od obožavatelja s strateškim kutevima kamere i pažljivo odabranim odjećama te se suzdržala od najavljivanja svoje trudnoće prijateljima ili dječjeg tuširanja zbog straha od gubitka bebe.

“Za one koji su mislili da sam čudno tiho zbog moje trudnoće, sada znate zašto”, napisao je Walsh.

Walsh je priopćio 4. svibnja da je ESPN otpuštala za vrijeme svog porodiljnog dopusta pa se ne bi vratila na posao.

Podijelila je to u prošlosti, Majčin dan bio joj je težak dan zbog njezinih gubitaka, ali je napisao da je ove godine brojala svoje blagoslove.

“Dokle god se sjećam, održao sam SportsCenter na Majčin dan, a posljednjih nekoliko godina koje su to osobno brutale, jedan sat vremena podsjetio na sve što je pošlo po zlu”, napisao je Walsh. “Nisam bio na TV-u danas, a nisam siguran kad ću opet biti, ali umjesto toga moram se družiti s tim dvjema dobrim jajašcima. SAMO SAMO dobra jaja. I znam koliko sam stvarno sretan.”
