RHOD star Cary Deuber couldn’t be cuter with her 5-year-old daughter, Zuri. However, Deuber is opening up about how hard it was for her to get pregnant and why she decided to have a hysterectomy.
“I am not one of those cute pregnant girls that runs around [excited],” she said. “I was throwing up the entire time — I had morning sickness until she came out.”
“Pregnancy for me was not the most fun. I was sick the entire time and was just ready for her to get out,” Deuber, 42, told PEOPLE. “And she was breech, so she was butt first, and I swear she just sat on my bladder the entire time.”
Even the process of getting pregnant wasn’t an easy one for the star, who had to have surgery to have a fibroid removed from her uterus beforehand.
“Then I grew more fibroids after [pregnancy], so I actually had to have a hysterectomy,” Deuber recalled. “So I can’t have any more children.”
Regardless of Deuber’s not-so-great experience with pregnancy, she has nothing but soothing words of postpartum advice for current moms-to-be.
“When I see a pregnant woman, I’m like, ‘It’s gonna be okay,’ ” she said. ” ‘And [the body] does all go back.’ It’s so weird that it does.”
Deuber continued, “You don’t think it’s gonna go back but then it does and you’re like, ‘Oh, that happened. It’s a miracle.'”
