Amanda Knox has revealed that she suffered a devastating marriage during her first pregnancy.
The 34-year-old, who spent four years in prison after wrongly being convicted of the murder of Brit student Meredith Kercher in 2007, discussed the tragedy in her podcast Labyrinths.
Amanda got pregnant “very fast” after having an IUD removed, at which point she and husband Christopher Robinson set up a nursery and mural.
However, doctors were unable to find a heartbeat during an ultrasound appointment.
Amanda said: "We went back in a week later — that week sucked, waiting — and it hadn't grown. It didn't have a heartbeat.
“That was confusing to me, because I thought, 'Why would there be a dead baby just hanging out in there? If it wasn't viable, why wasn't it going away?'
“My body didn't even know, and that felt weird to me. … I didn't know that you could have a missed miscarriage."
Amanda suffered pain "like I've never experienced before," along with two days of "birthing blood, wads of blood, not like a period at all."
She spoke through tears as she recounted breaking the news to her mum and mum-in-law.
Amanda continued: "I did feel incredibly disappointed that that was the story of my first-ever pregnancy.
"I thought, like, I knew exactly what I want to do with my first pregnancy, and to have it not come to fruition not through choice felt like a betrayal.”

Christoper now feels “more determined” to try and conceive again.
Amanda sait it ended up becoming like “work”, adding: "It's not a fun thing, which it was before. It was fun making the baby room, and it was fun to f— like bunny rabbits."
Knox was studying abroad in Perugia, Italy, when she was accused of helping then-boyfriend Raffaelle Sollecito kill roommate Meredith, 21, in a supposed sex game gone wrong in 2007.

But the murder conviction was overturned in 2011, although the court did uphold Knox's slander conviction for wrongly accusing Congolese-born bar owner Diya Lumumba in the murder.
The court reduced the slander sentence to three years, for which Knox received credit for time served.
Rudy Guede was eventually jailed for 30 years for the murder, reduced to 16 on appeal.
