Bettinna Carlos Opens Up About Her Miscarriage

“We were pregnant and then no more,” Bettinna Carlos wrote in a heartbreaking Instagram post. Apparently, the GMA actress suffered a miscarriage with her second baby. Her first child is Amanda, whom she had before marrying her now-husband Mikki Eduardo in December 2020.

She went on to write a message of hope to moms who have also lost their babies:

“To all the mothers who have lost their children before they could even hold them, feel them, see them (in the flesh or ultrasound), may you too find peace in this: God’s purposes for the lives of our unborn children were fully fulfilled however long or short they were IN us. Their lives did not go to waste. And in the same way, YOU, if you are still breathing that means God’s purpose for you is not yet fulfilled-hence your very life and every breath.”

Then, Carlos wrote a prayer of gratitude.

“Lord, You were so gracious in giving to us and You are still good even in taking away. Thank you for the fresh hope and new joy You gave us even for a very short while. Thank you for the assurance that one day, in heaven, we will see and be with our child. Thank you for what You give when You take away. What we gain from this loss.”

The actress shared what she had gone through the day after her operation along with a photo of her point of view, a beautiful sunrise.

This bright red sunrise woke me up the day after my operation. I barely slept the night because of the pain and when I finally did for an hour maybe 2, I was awoken by this light. For a split second, I was annoyed. Nakakatulog na nga eh. AND THEN, I REMEMBERED. I begged for this. I did surrender my life already but I also pleaded for it IF it’s His will. I asked for this. To live another day. To see my husband and daughter. Yet, when God woke me up to show me He answered my prayer, I was like that. Hay, how forgetful and so soon! So, I snapped a photo to remember God’s grace despite my ungrateful heart.

Later on, she posted a touching handwritten letter from her husband as a reminder of what she has in her life now. Eduardo wrote:

“Hi Love,

The things we went through the past few days were tough. I can’t imagine how it was for you physically and emotionally. I admire your strength and how the Lord held you together. This journey was challenging, but there’s no one else I’d rather walk through it. I love you. I’m here for you.

Happy 14th month, love.”

Bettinna Carlos remains optimistic. She wrote in another post, “Physically I am miraculously healing really fast and well. Mentally emotionally spiritually I could say I am well as well. BUT I do have these random moments when a certain “cloud of nothingness” comes that’s hard to explain.”

“Today as I sat yet again in nothingness, God suddenly spoke to my heart. ”

“Something good can come out of this nothingness–as if saying it straight to me. ‘But only I can create that. And at My time.’ (Come to think of it The Creation took 6 days in God’s time!) And then, a certain comfort joined my visitor ‘Grief’. I name it ‘Grace’.”
