connectVideo’Today’ meteorologist Dylan Dreyer reveals miscarriage
‘Today’ show meteorologist Dylan Dreyer revealed Monday that she suffered a miscarriage after struggling to get pregnant with her second child.
On the heels of Jenna Bush Hager’s pregnancy announcement, “Today” show meteorologist Dylan Dreyer revealed Monday that she suffered a miscarriage after struggling to get pregnant with her second child.
Nine months after welcoming son Calvin and her husband Brian Fichera, the couple decided to try for a second child. But after six months, the couple grew concerned as she is not pregnant, given the fact how quickly she was pregnant with Calvin, who is 3 years old in December.

Dreyer, 37, and Fichera, 32, went to the doctor, where she learned that not only had her emergency C-section caused major scarring in her uterus, but that she had a very low egg count.
“My uterus was two-thirds closed,” Dreyer explained.
She underwent surgery and became pregnant. Five weeks later, however, she woke up to the sound of the massive bleeding.”

“I’m devastated, and I go to work on the ‘Today’ show and be happy and laugh and pretend nothing’s wrong,” she said. “We press and hold the [emotions] down and get through the show,” Dreyer said, tearing up. “I go to the doctor and they do an ultrasound. The baby is still there. It is a fluke bleeding.”
A few days later, however, Dreyer bled again and got the message that she had lost the baby.
“I just want people to know that, yes, I’m sort of going through it with you,” Dreyer shared. “I don’t know where this ends.”
Although they are experiencing secondary infertility, Dreyer said her grief would never affect Hager is exciting news.

“Some people would say, ‘Jenna just announced that she’s pregnant today.” Great! I am so happy for her!” Dreyer said. “That is her world. This is my world. My grief did not take away other people’s happiness and my grief is not minimized because someone else has a happier situation.”
Despite the ongoing struggle — Dreyer and Fichera said, they’re going to start with IVF if they do not naturally pregnant — the meteorologist remains hopeful.
“A part of me feels angry at my body … but God has a plan,” she said.
