The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers reveal that newly married Abby Newman (Melissa Ordway) is having a hard time as a Genoa City newlywed. She just learned that she cannot carry a child to term with Chance Chancellor (Donny Boaz) on the CBS soap opera and is understandably devastated.
This was determined after a medical checkup and at that time she and Chance were given the dire news. It seems that a prior miscarriage left too much scar tissue for Abby to carry a baby to term. Now The Young and the Restless viewers are wondering about that past storyline and we have the answers for you here.
The Young And The Restless Spoilers – Why Can’t Abby Newman Carry A Child To Term?
Before Abby married her dreamboat Chance Chancellor, she was married to Ben “Stitch” Rayburn (Sean Carrigan). This was back in 2015 and Stitch came to town as a friend of Dylan McAvoy (Steve Burton).
