When will she be ready for another pregnancy?
Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra have been planning on making their family bigger for years. After deciding that adoption was the best choice for their first child Carly, they’ve been focusing on having more children of their own. Now they have one daughter, Nova, but it’s no secret that Tyler is holding out to have a son!
Unfortunately, as Tyler pointed out in a recent episode of Teen Mom OG, Catelynn has yet to have a pregnancy that wasn’t associated with trauma. Her first pregnancy was associated with the difficult decision of adoption, her second pregnancy was followed by severe post-partum depression, and her third pregnancy ended in a miscarriage.
Now that Catelynn has left her treatment facility after receiving care for her depression and suicidal thoughts, she’s figuring out when her next pregnancy will be!
A Time for Healing
This season of Teen Mom OG, Catelynn Lowell went through a huge amount of difficulty. Catelynn and Tyler Baltierra decided the time was right to try for a third pregnancy, and it wasn’t long before she announced that she was expecting. However, the couple unfortunately suffered a heartbreaking miscarriage resulting in Catelynn going into a treatment center for her suicidal thoughts. Tyler discussed her pregnancies and how difficult they have been on Teen Mom OG, saying:
“Unfortunately for Cate, every single pregnancy she’s had has had some sort of trauma with it. Letting go for Carly, with Nova post partum. That miscarriage was one of the most traumatic things shes ever dealt with.”
It seems that Catelynn is doing much better, and she’s even left the treatment center she was in for her suicidal thoughts. Now, she’s revealing her plans for her next pregnancy.
To no surprise, Catelynn has decided to focus on her and her family’s healing before having another pregnancy.
“Their main focus at the moment is Nova and raising her,” a source close to Catelynn and Tyler dished to Radar Online. But that doesn’t mean they won’t be trying again soon.
“I know [Tyler] wants a boy so bad, but he said it’s all up to Cate,” the source revealed. “When she’s ready, he’s ready, but he’s not even bringing it up or mentioning it. A baby is in their future, they just don’t know how soon.”
For now, Catelynn is using her clothing line Tierra Reign as a healthy outlet. “She’s a lot more involved with their clothing company,” the source said. “They’ve been really just focused on Tierra Reign and getting back into the swing of things.”
But Catelynn has bigger plans than just running a clothing line. She and Tyler are working to become mental health advocates. “They’ve been doing a lot of mental health podcasts since the wounds are still fresh and people still have questions,” the source revealed.
