16 and Pregnant's Ashley Salazar recently announced that she and her baby daddy, Justin Lane, are expecting their second child together, and fans couldn't be more excited. This dynamic duo placed their first child up for adoption, and are definitely looking at this pregnancy as a fresh start — however, it looks like Ashley's experiencing a few complications...

This fan-favorite recently took it to Twitter asking for prayers, and then followed up on her blog after fans assumed she'd suffered a miscarriage. While Ash confirmed that she has not miscarried, there is some cause for concern: her baby isn't showing up on the ultrasound machine.

"Me and Justin went and got an ultrasound and I am supposed to be 8-weeks, but according the doctor, I probably ovulated late because of my birth control and the sac is only measuring 6-weeks," Ash explained. "There was no baby seen, but that’s because I may be way too early to tell anything. I go back on Monday to find out what the issue is. That is why I am asking for the prayers."

Ashley also confirmed that she's had telltale signs of pregnancy like exhaustion, and has even gained a little weight! However, it's clear that she's extremely worried. "I don’t see how I could have ovulated that late and conceived 5 days before my missed period, but I’m praying my birth control really did cause that," Ashley continued. "I know God has a greater plan or maybe this was some type of wake-up call because I’ve been so stressed out."
