“At the ER, woke up feeling awful and needed stat blood work and an ultrasound. Still experiencing a missed miscarriage and my body isn’t releasing the pregnancy. Worried a bit about infection, so here we are,” Roper captioned a photo of herself on her Instagram Stories on August 19, 2023.
Roper appeared to be in good spirits despite what’s going on with her body. She was seen smiling while sitting upright in a hospital chair in the hallway of a hospital after having some blood work done.
In another update, Roper shared that doctors did not find an infection.
“No infection, labs all came back normal, however my body is still producing hCG (it essentially still thinks it’s growing a baby). Those levels have to go down for the body to miscarry. By now, for how long it’s been since the baby stopped growing, my body shouldn’t be doing this, it’s like it’s in denial,” she wrote.
Roper has been released from the hospital.

I am forever changed,” she wrote.
