Catelynn Lowell: In Rehab After Suffering Miscarriage?!

by at .  Updated at .

To be honest, we thought that we knew the full, tragic extent of Catelynn Lowell's current issues with her mental health.

But, as it turns out, we really, really did not.

Since Catelynn has lived so much of her life on television, we've been able to see many of the heartbreaking things she's been through.

We saw her agonize with Tyler Baltierra over the decision to place their first daughter for adoption all those years ago.

Moreover, we saw how completely unsupportive their parents were about it. Imagine the toll that must've taken on her.

We witnessed how terrible her mother was to her after, to the point where it was almost too uncomfortable to watch.

And then, when she and Tyler had precious little Nova three years ago, we saw her suffer from severe postpartum depression after giving birth.

More recently, Catelynn has been in and out of rehab.

Since December, and probably prior to that, she's been dealing with suicidal thoughts and trying to work through her childhood trauma.

It's a whole, whole lot for one person to go through.

Now, thanks to a genuinely upsetting new report, we're learning that the reality star has been dealing with even more than that.

Something unimaginable, yet all too real.

To give a little background, there was some interesting footage in the teaser for next week's new episode of Teen Mom OG.

In the teaser, the one that aired immediately after the most recent episode, we saw Catelynn tell Tyler that Nova was going to be a big sister.

Meaning, of course, that she was pregnant.

She even presented a positive pregnancy test, proving that this really happened and wasn't just a slick promo cut by MTV producers.

That would be a nice little scene, and a cause for celebration, if the cast members weren't so active on social media day and night.

But they are, so let's be real ... if Catelynn was pregnant right now, there is pretty much literally no way we wouldn't know all about it.

So what's going on?

According to a source who spoke with The Ashley's Reality Roundup, "Catelynn got pregnant and surprised Tyler and Nova."

Then, tragically, the unthinkable happened following the big reveal, and Lowell "had a miscarriage not long after."

"That happened right before she went to treatment when she tweeted about thinking about killing herself."

Oh, Catelynn ...

The source adds that "The crew and production staff heard she was about six weeks pregnant when it happened, but no one is 100 percent sure."

So that makes it sound like the miscarriage definitely had a hand in her worsened depression, right?

It's absolutely heartbreaking to think about, but there's another layer to the whole thing that makes it just a little bit harder.

"They don't do voiceovers until the episode is all done and being edited usually," the insider explained,

"So Catelynn had to talk about trying to get pregnant and then getting pregnant even after she had the miscarriage."

"We felt badly for her."

Yes, obviously.

It actually sounds kind of cruel to make her do this in light of everything that she's gone through, but that's a separate topic.

The source close to the hit show's production also said that her miscarriage "is definitely going to be a big topic on the show."

"That's why last week they made sure her voiceover was something like, 'I'm not telling Tyler I took my birth control out.'"

So it sounds like Catelynn did go to rehab very soon after the miscarriage, then left early, then returned to complete treatment.

Then she went in for another round of treatment a couple of weeks after that, it seems safe to say that she isn't doing terribly well.

It's all extremely hard to fathom and the details are more than a little confusing to piece together from the outside looking in.

Here's hoping she's able to work through everything, because at this point she's been through enough hard times for a lifetime.
