The news that Scheana Shay is expecting her first child is especially joyful for her and boyfriend Brock Davies after the couple suffered a miscarriage in June.

Scheana opened up about the experience of finding out she was pregnant again in a recent interview with PEOPLE. "We got pregnant so quickly," Scheana told the outlet. "My doctor told me to wait one period and ovulation cycle and then we could try again. It was the first and only time we tried and I had a feeling right away, but it was so soon to tell because I wasn't even close to missing my period yet. I just had a feeling."

Scheana said that she wanted to take a pregnancy test before heading out on a trip to Sedona, Arizona with Brock, which was going to be filled with high-impact activities like off-roading. She recalled "bawling [her] eyes out" after her pregnancy test came back positive. Scheana added, "It just all happened so quickly, which is so exciting but also really scary after having a miscarriage."

After losing a baby when she was six and a half weeks pregnant in June, Scheana remained careful when it came to this pregnancy. "After a miscarriage, I was definitely even more aware of my body, but just so much more cautious and scared ... I was just too afraid to lift up a 5 lb. weight. I was like, 'But what if that makes me have a miscarriage?'" Scheana told PEOPLE. "It was every little thing, which I'm sure was driving Brock crazy because he's like, 'You're fine!' But I was just like, 'I need to make sure, I need to make sure' — and now we've made sure! Everything is good."

Scheana has previously said on her Scheananigans podcast that doctors had told her in the past that "it would be close to impossible" to get pregnant on her own because she has a very low ovarian reserve, or egg count. She underwent two egg retrievals in 2019 and was getting ready for a third procedure in an effort to freeze her eggs prior to her miscarriage this year.

Scheana encouraged anyone who wants to become a parent to not give up on their dream, pointing to options like freezing eggs, IVF, and adoption if conceiving naturally is not possible. "There's always a way," Scheana said. "If you truly want to be a mom, don't give up."

"Being a mom is something that I didn't think was necessarily going to be possible for me, which is why I froze my eggs twice last year," Scheana added. "I didn't know that I would be able to get pregnant on my own so I'm just so excited that we were able to do this naturally and that everything looks good. I'm so excited to have a healthy baby and hug my baby and just be a mom."

Scheana and Brock's baby is due in April 2021. This will be the first child for Scheana. Brock has two children from a previous relationship.
