Kimberly McCullough, who stars as Robin Scorpio on the ABC soap opera "General Hospital," revealed in a blog post earlier this week that she suffered a late miscarriage in 2015.

As part of her post, which detailed the 37-year-old actress's ups and downs of the past year, she wrote that "[her] heart was so full and then it broke."

"I had lost my baby girl," McCullough explained in her post. "It was too much. ... These things happen and no, I don't believe they happen 'for a reason.' I'm still processing, still healing, but anyone who has gone through it knows, losing a baby at 22 weeks is tragic."

McCullough even posted a selfie in front of a mirror of her growing belly.

While McCullough also had other challenges throughout the year, including the loss of her dog and a cyst on her brain, she also documented the highs. She wrote and directed a TV pilot about growing up on a soap opera in the 1980s and she was a director on the show "Pretty Little Liars."

And while she experienced tragedy, she also wrote, "One thing I am proud of however was that I allowed myself to be happy and to relish the moment. I sat in all that goodness and I can recall those feelings (when I'm having different ones) and hope that it can be like that again."
