Rica Peralejo Just Revealed That She Lost Her Baby


Rica Peralejo shared some distressing news on her blog last Wednesday by disclosing that she lost her baby, just days after finding out that she’s almost two months pregnant.

Rica on her blog post titled “Pain and Peace,” she wrote: “One of my biggest fears has been realized…I lost the baby in my womb.”

Peralejo added: “For those who don’t know, I found out I was pregnant sometime in January, announced it last Sunday to the public, and on Tuesday found out that my baby no longer has a heartbeat.”

Rica also divulged that her would-be second child contracted an abnormality that hindered the baby to grow any further which she said was “most probably” a developmental problem.

Rica said: “My doctor said that nothing could have altered this, even if I rested, stayed home, etc. My first ultrasound showed heartbeat and my second didn’t anymore. The size of the baby also remained the same despite the 6-week-gap.”

Peralejo chose to stay positive in spite of the traumatic experience. She continued: “I believe that there is nothing I could have done to keep the baby, or to lose the baby, if it isn’t aligned with God’s good, pleasing and perfect will.

So many stories attest to this, like some moms who don’t want their babies and do everything to rid of them, still get to keep them no matter what. On the other hand, many fit women out there happen to miscarry or lose babies for unknown reasons.

I actually know three women who have miscarried and lost a number of babies in their womb, all who are very dear to me, and they serve as inspiration and hope for me at this time.

We’ll never understand it all, why this happened to them, to me, and not to others, but one thing enters my mind right now: God knows what he is doing.”

However, in spite of her stand to remain strong under distress, she admitted to feeling “great emotional pain” because of what happened.

Rica wrote: “I think I have a long way to go to heal. Right now I can already feel fear seeping into my bones, traumatized by silent dopplers and all. That is something I know I’d have to deal with in the days to come.”

Rica Peralejo and her sister, erstwhile actress Paula, announced last Sunday that both of them are pregnant. She said that Paula is “in great shape” and that “she and her baby are doing just fine, praise God.”

We wish you all the best Rica.
