After suffering a devastating miscarriage in 2010, Our America host Lisa Ling says she is being cautious with this pregnancy. The 39-year-old host is five months along... and has found out she is having a girl!

"I've been so lucky — I have felt completely normal this entire time," Lisa Ling told Access Hollywood Live about being pregnant after a miscarriage. "Other than the fact that I feel like I'm getting this big gut, I didn't have any morning sickness or anything."

Ling, who is married to oncologist Paul Song, admitted that she has changed her lifestyle since she has become pregnant again. "I've just been trying to be very, very cautious about everything... with diet, with exercise," she said.

One of the main changes she has made is with her pregnancy exercise routine. "I used to do extremely rigorous Bikram yoga in 110 degrees and I would go on these long jogs. So, I'm trying to temper it a little bit," she revealed. "I'm now just doing stairs up and down, which is great to do at hotels."

Reaching out and talking to other women who have gone through the same thing is an important part of dealing with the heartbreak of a miscarriage.

Ling was seven weeks pregnant when doctors told her two years ago that her baby did not have a heartbeat and that she had miscarried. "I felt more like a failure than I'd felt in a very long time," she told The View.

"We actually [hadn't] been trying that long," she said, remembering her first pregnancy. "I don't know that I took it as seriously as I should have because it happened so fast. But then when I heard the doctor say there was no heartbeat it was like bam, like a knife through the heart."

She said that her miscarriage made her feel "devastated" and she was scared she would suffer another one if she became pregnant again,  so she started a web site called Secret Society of Women so other women could share and talk about their shared experiences.

Reaching out and talking to other women who have gone through the same thing is an important part of dealing with the heartbreak of a miscarriage. An estimated 10-25 percent of all pregnancies end in miscarriage so it is important to know you are not alone.
