In July 2011, Bethenny Frankel told PEOPLE she had “anxiety” about her age when it came to trying for more children. In February, she admitted her fears came true when at eight weeks pregnant she had a miscarriage.

“It can be different for everybody,” Frankel says of the heartbreaking event on Tuesday’s episode of her talk show, Bethenny, which featured guest Dr. Roshini Raj. “For me, it’s that I’m older. I’m 41. That was ringing in my head and that it’s high-risk. But, I’m lucky to have my first child.”

Frankel was especially disappointed about losing the baby because she “accidentally found out” from her doctor that she would have had another daughter.
