Olympic gold medalist Shawn Johnson East was used to her body doing exactly what she needed it to do. So her road to motherhood—one that included an unexpected pregnancy and a miscarriage—made her feel vulnerable in a totally new way.

She also reveals the heartwarming reason she didn’t find out the sex of her first child.
