Bumps Along The Way
In the beginning, a few days before Christmas 2011, they learned Missy was pregnant. But at their 10 week ultrasound, they learned the baby no longer had a heartbeat. A couple weeks after they lost the baby, they got a call from the doctor telling them it was a boy. Shortly after they lost him, they started trying and she quickly got pregnant again. At 16 weeks, they had a ultrasound party and they learned they were having a boy. Then, they lost him at 20 weeks. Missy delivered him still on September 7, 2012. They decided to name him Gabriel Bryan Lanning. Not long after they lost Gabriel, Missy started a YouTube channel to outline their loss.
Reason for Miscarriage and Stillbirth
On November 8, 2013, Missy posted a video on her personal channel titled WHY I LOST MY TWO BABIES. She revealed that there was a full septum in her uterus which was causing pregnancy losses. Oliver was a miracle since she was pregnant with him at the time and had no idea about the septum. On November 7, 2014, Missy had surgery to get the septum removed.
