"Bachelorette" star Ali Fedotowsky-Manno revealed she recently had a miscarriage. The television personality took to Instagram to make the announcement.

"I had a miscarriage recently. I’m not sharing this bc I feel sorry for myself or I want others to tell me they feel sorry for me. I don’t feel sorry for myself. I feel sad for what could’ve been. Sad for the baby that was growing inside me. Sad because it’s sad. I want to share this because I think it’s important. I’m so uplifted and encouraged by the way I’m seeing social media change. Change from being a place where everyone shares the highlights of their life and now being a place where people share the good & the bad - the smiles & the tears," she wrote.

She revealed one morning she woke up with intense cramps.

"I passed the gestational sac - which was the size of a plum - in my bedroom. I was in complete shock when it happened. I sat and stared at it for hours - not able to fully comprehend what happened. And the utter exhaustion that took over my body in the few days after that was almost debilitating. Actually, being completely exhausted for weeks was one of the first signs that I was pregnant," she explained.

She concluded her post by saying, "We all go through different emotions & process the loss differently. I know that my loss is not the same as someone who’s had a stillbirth or lost a baby at 20 weeks. Or someone who has been trying to conceive for years. But what I found so shocking about my experience is that it affected me so much harder than I could have imagined. So know that if you’re going or have gone through this, your feelings are valid - whatever they may be."

Several of her friends and colleagues took to the comments section to show their support.

"Love you and thinking of you.. I can’t imagine going through this at home.. being taken into hospital is bad enough so I’m sending you a BIG right hug right now," makeup artist Emma Willis commented.

"Sending you so much love. You’re so strong for sharing. Love yourself a little extra and hug that beautiful family of yours," actress Daniella Monet wrote.

A while after putting up the post, Fedotowsky-Manno, who shared two children with husband Kevin Manno, thanked fans and followers for their support.

"Thank you for all your love and support on my last post. It was a difficult few weeks for sure. I shared at one point a few weeks ago that I was going through something but I wasn't ready to share it with all of you, I needed some time to grieve the loss," she said. "But I am so much better now and I am enjoying my family and yeah, I just wanted to share because I know it's going to help people. And that's why I'm doing it," she said on her Instagram story.
