In October she lost her baby, then in February lost another one. She then decided to use an Ava bracelet to track her ovulation cycle naturally.
It worked. After multiple miscarriages – five total, including two chemical losses – and a rocky marriage, country star Jana Kramer is expecting her second child.
“I’m so excited,” the 34-year-old said, according to PEOPLE. “We lost in October and then we did an IVF cycle and we lost in February, so I want to be able to be like, ‘Hey, I know it’s hard but just try to have some hope.’”
Explaining her ovulation cycle, she added, “I didn’t know I ovulated late and I don’t know if it’s because my cycles are messed up because of my miscarriages, but it said I ovulated on the sixteenth or seventeenth day so that’s what we trusted and I got pregnant.”
“My body just went through so many hormonal changes and I was like, ‘There are so many women that feel this way right now and they feel alone too,’” she told Us Weekly in May. “It’s frustrating, but what I’ve realized is, it’s truly a miracle to have a baby and it’s all in God’s timing and hands. If it’s meant to be, it will be.”
Kramer’s marriage to husband Mike Caussin has seen its share of rockiness. Seven months after their daughter Jolie was born, Kramer and the former NFL tight end decided to take a break when it was discovered that Caussin had been unfaithful.
In May 2015 they had married; by August 2016 they had split while Caussin entered a facility to treat his sex addiction. But in December 2017, they flew to Hawaii and renewed their vows.
“Infidelity has changed me so much that now I have to work on that piece [of our relationship],” Kramer said. “I can’t keep blaming and putting the blame on him.”
She added, “Now I have to work on how to stay present and not go in the past. And it’s a tough road, but a lot of it has to be turned and looked in the mirror to kind of be like, ‘All right, well, why?’”
The couple is waiting a few weeks before they release the sex of the baby. Please pray for Jana and Mike’s pregnancy, that Baby would be healthy and strong. Be sure to read about a sports champion who died tragically in a violent wreck over the weekend.
