Catelynn Lowell reveals another ‘heartbreaking’ miscarriage and how she coped with the traumatic experience on Teen Mom finale

Catelynn Lowell revealed she suffered another ‘heartbreaking’ miscarriage during the season finale of Teen Mom on Tuesday night.

The 29-year-old reality star discussed the trauma surrounding her previous miscarriages and giving up her daughter Carly for adoption when she was 16, and credited her strong mental health with being able to cope with the loss.

Catelynn experienced a miscarriage in 2017 which triggered anxiety and suicidal thoughts, leading husband Tyler Baltierra to help her find in-patient treatment at a facility in Tucson where Lowell learned how to manage her mental health.

Catelynn and Tyler had just told their families they were expecting another little one before complications arose with her pregnancy. 

‘So I woke up from a nap today and I was bleeding, so we miscarried this baby,’ she told cameras. ‘It’s hard, period. Anybody who has been through it knows how difficult and heartbreaking it is. It just sucks because we were really excited.’ 

She noted past losses felt different due to various stressors and triggers.

'The reason why I got triggered when I had the first miscarriage was because it was losing a child all over again and that trauma from being 16 years old and handing your child away to somebody really got triggered and it brought up all sorts of emotions

‘The reason why I got triggered when I had the first miscarriage was because it was losing a child all over again and that trauma from being 16 years old and handing your child away to somebody really got triggered and it brought up all sorts of emotions,’ she said. ‘It’s just crazy what your mind can do, how it holds on to these things and brings them out in different ways.’

And unlike in the past, Catelynn was proud of herself for being able to manage her mental health amid the stressful time. 

‘It’s not overcoming me or making me spiral,’ she noted. ‘So I can tell that the mental health work that I’ve done has worked, but that being said, it still sucks. And you still have a moment of being mad at your body. It’s super hard and it’s a traumatic experience.’     

The couple endured the difficult time in front of cameras and are now expecting once again as Catelynn is in her third trimester with a little girl due this summer.

They were featured on the original season of 16 and Pregnant where they made the difficult decision to place their daughter into adoption just days after she was born.

Catelynn and Tyler were ridiculed for their decision by friends and family, but both have shared through the years that adoption was ‘one of the BEST things’ they could have done for the little girl they named Carly.

‘I can’t believe that 9 years ago Tyler and I were waiting to go to the hospital to make one of the hardest decisions of our lives . . . but it ended up being one of the BEST things we could have done for her,’ Catelynn wrote on Instagram in May. ‘Carly we love you so much and are so proud of you! #birthdaygirl #adoptionjourney.’ 

The couple — who also have six-year-old daughter Novalee and two-year-old Vaeda — were married in front of their Teen Mom friends on Aug. 22, 2015.
