Vanessa Carlton reveals she lost her pregnancy

Vanessa shared unfortunate news with her fans on November 5th.
The singer who recently announced she was pregnant,revealed on her Facebook that the reason behind canceling some of her tour dates was because she has lost her pregnancy.
She explained that she was “diagnosed with an ectopic pregnancy, or in my case it was a Fallopian pregnancy(the embryo settled in my tube,which is the width of a straw).
This isn’t considered a viable pregnancy because the fetus can’t develop and it is a high risk situation for the mother because of the potential for tubal rupture and internal bleeding.
Things are okay since doctors caught it on time and took the necessary precautions to make sure everything went smoothly,however, on Monday October 28, things went downhill.
After the chemo shot and despite our best efforts, my tube started to rupture and I was experiencing internal bleeding. My doctor performed a successful surgery and removed my entire right Fallopian tube.
She continued “unfortunately November 5th ,a week to the day from my emergency surgery I started getting intense nerve pain in one of my incisions.I was all set to fly to Vancouver on Wednesday but,alas I am not ready yet.
So sadly,I will need to cancel the first four dates of my November tour-this includes Vancouver, Bellingham,Portland and Seattle.
I need to stay close to my doctors and the hospital in case this initial pain turns into something more serious.I’m ready to get back out their mentally and if all goes even remotely as planned I will be ready for San Francisco.
Regardless of the situation,Carlton remains positive and appreciative of all the support.
I’m so bummed about having to jank up this tour. It started off pretty great. Thanks for all your support and understanding through this.
Gimme a couple more days and I’ll be ready.
