Pregnancy hasn’t really been an easy journey for singer Carrie Underwood. The singer who is pregnant with her second child with husband Mike Fisher shared her story with CBS Sunday Morning. Carrie said that the song “Cry pretty” which is also the title track of her album “speaks to a lot of things that have happened in this past year.”
Carrie already has a son who is three years of age named Isaiah, and she is super excited about making him a big brother in a few months.
Carrie said; “Here we go. Oh, lawdy! 2017 just wasn’t how I imagined it,” she said. “I’d kind of planned that 2017 was, you know, going to be the year that I work on new music, and I have a baby. We got pregnant in early 2017 and didn’t work out…Yeah.
It happens. And that was the thing, in the beginning, it was like, ‘Okay, God, we know this is, just wasn’t Your timing. And that is all right. We will bounce back and figure our way through it.’ And got pregnant again in the spring, and it didn’t work out.”
“Got pregnant again, early 2018. Didn’t work out,” she said. “So, at that point, it was just kind of like, ‘Okay, like, what’s the deal? What is all of this?’ And throughout the whole process, you know, I’m writing and, like, literally right after finding out that I would lose a baby, I’d have a writing session, I’d be like, ‘Let’s go. You know, I can’t just sit around thinking about this. Like, I wanna work, I wanna do this.'”
In the wake of Underwood’s experiences, she found it difficult to go about her daily activities with a smile on her face.
Her reason was “‘Cause I would literally have these horrible things going on in my life, and then have to go smile and, like, do some interviews or, like, do a photo shoot or something, you know?” she said. “So it was just kind of, like, therapeutic, I guess.” Adding that “I had always been afraid to be angry because we are so blessed. And my son, Isaiah, is the sweetest thing. And he’s the best thing in the world.
And I’m like, ‘If we can never have any other kids, that’s okay because he’s amazing.’ And I have this amazing life. Like, really, what can I complain about? I can’t. I have an incredible husband, incredible friends, an incredible job, an incredible kid. Can I be mad? No…and I got mad.”
However, Underwood didn’t give up. After what she thought was another miscarriage, the singer went on her knees and prayed like never before.
“Mike was away just for the evening, and I texted him, and I was like, ‘I don’t really want to be alone, so I’m just gonna go snuggle with Isaiah.’ And I don’t know how I didn’t wake him up, but I was just sobbing,” The mother of one said. “And I was like, ‘Why on Earth do I keep getting pregnant if I can’t have a kid? Like, what is this? Shut the door. Like, do something. Either shut the door or let me have a kid.'”
“And for the first time, I feel like I actually I told God how I felt,” Carrie said. “And I feel, like, we’re supposed to do that. That was like a Saturday – and the Monday I went to the doctor to, like, confirm another miscarriage.
And they told me everything was great! And I was like, ‘You heard me.’ Not that He hasn’t in the past. But maybe, I don’t know, He heard me.”
