Taylor Frankie Paul is sharing her experience with pregnancy loss.
The social media star, best known in the mom TikTok community, revealed on Nov. 22 that she recently experienced an ectopic pregnancy, which is when a fertilized egg grows outside of the womb, according to the Mayo Clinic.
Captioning her video, "the last 7 weeks," Taylor is seen surprising Dakota with a baby onesie that read "Daddy Dakota," along with the two positive pregnancy tests and newborn baby bear slippers. Then, Taylor wrote that she "started to bleed A LOT," leading to medical professionals believing she had miscarried.
"Nevermind. WAIT!!! HCG levels are rising," Taylor, referencing pregnancy hormone levels, captioned another moment in the video of her waiting inside a doctor's office. She afterward showed various images of a vein bandaged on her forearm from what appears to be medical visits, with her writing over the photos, "Let's keep an eye on it."
In one visit, Taylor—wearing a hospital gown with Dakota alongside her—films the moment she learned she had an ectopic pregnancy. Per the Mayo Clinic, such pregnancies normally cannot continue and can potentially become life-threatening.
Taylor, in heartbreaking images, revealed that she "was treated and no longer pregnant."
Sending a message to people who've gone through similar experiences, Taylor said she is still healing from the process.
"My heart goes out to all who have suffered through this, in even much scarier cases," she wrote. "Was a slow and painful process. Still in the process of recovery."
