Columnist Meghan McCain opened up with more details after suffering a miscarriage in 2019 before she and husband Ben Domenech welcomed a daughter to the world in 2020.

“I had blood work done at my doctor,” the former “The View” co-host shared during her appearance on the PEOPLE’s podcast “Me Becoming Mom” in a piece by the outlet on Thursday. “And I actually found out the day after.” (RELATED: ‘I’m Just Going To Rip The Band-Aid Off’: Meghan McCain Announces She’s Leaving ‘The View’)

“I had a disastrous appearance on Seth Meyers and I didn’t understand it,” she added. “I didn’t even really understand what HCG levels are or were. And she told me that it should be doubling and it’s not and they aren’t as high as they need to be at this point in time and I just was so confused.” (RELATED: ‘It’s Just Making Him More Powerful’: Meghan McCain Warns Democrats That Attacking DeSantis Could Create A 2024 Monster)

“And then having to go through a thing so publicly, there was a disaster in my career and then this disaster in my body,” McCain continued. “It was one of the darkest times in my life. It’s like every sense in my body was overwhelmed and then I was heartbroken.”

The former Fox News host talked about sharing the news with those who were close to her, who took steps to hide away things like “baby books” in her place because they knew she was suffering.

McCain previously talked about how she felt her miscarriage might be a sign from God that she wasn’t meant to be a mother.

“I pray to God and I pray to my dad when I’m going through hard times. I do both, which maybe sounds weird, but I just feel like my dad’s [John McCain] in heaven and I find comfort in praying and asking him for advice,” the former ABC co-host told People magazine.

“I was like, ‘Please make this decision for me … because I’m OK with being able to have kids or not being able to have kids, I just want to have some kind of resolution,'” she added.

“And then I got pregnant really soon after, and I found out I was pregnant right after I had gone home to Arizona for the first time since he [my dad] died,” McCain continued.
