Remy Ma Explains Ectopic Pregnancy & Papoose Shares His Feelings On Losing A Child
Last month, we reported the terribly sad news that Remy Ma and Papoose lost the child she was carrying, their first together. In the video, she posted on her Instagram and later on an episode of “Love and Hip Hop” Remy Ma explained that she had an ectopic pregnancy but recently on “The Real” she gave a more thorough description of what she experienced. In fact, she said this was not the first time this has happened. She also explained how she and her husband will move forward. Loni started the interview asking Papoose to share his thoughts and feelings on the ordeal.
Papoose: I mean, that was the saddest day of my life. Um, when she told me the news, I was extremely happy, we was thinking of names. I mean, I would wake up in the morning and the first thing I would see is my future child, you know? And um, for it to take a turn like that, it was just like a rollercoaster and it went down. But um, honestly, when I got the news, she had to go into emergency surgery. So I was devastated about my child, but I was just like praying you know, “I hope my wife is going to be okay.” I just wanted her to be okay.
Remy Ma: The bad thing with me is that this happened to me before when I was a kid. I was a teenager the first time I got pregnant. And I had an ectopic pregnancy then. So they removed… I literally passed out. Like I thought I just had bad cramps and I passed out. My friends…
Adrienne: As a teenager?
Remy: … As a teenager. My friends you know, they called the ambulance. I went to the hospital, they did a sonogram and it was black. I literally was bleeding internally. They rushed me to surgery and when I came out they was like, “It was an ectopic, you know, we removed the tube.” But I was a kid, I didn’t know what that meant I was like, “Okay.”…
Adrienne: “We removed the tube,” what does that mean?
Remy: … They removed one… As a female you have two fallopian tubes. This is where the egg that gets you pregnant comes from. It comes down the fallopian tube and it plants in the uterus to grow. But it’s an ectopic pregnancy when the egg connects with you know… it starts to fertilize in the tube. So your tube, it expands until the point that it can’t expand anymore and then that’s when the internal bleeding and things like that happen.
Adrienne: Does it burst?
Loni: So she lost the tube.
Remy: Yeah, both times. That’s what happens, so the second time… I didn’t know and when I see the doctors whispering and you know, everyone’s trying to keep it hush. I knew it was something bad and I was like, “that’s probably what it is.” But I wasn’t in like as much pain as I was the first time, so I thought maybe you know, they could do something to fix it. But… it was pretty much the same procedure, rushed into surgery and took out my other fallopian tube. So now, you know, I can only have children in vitro.
