Gretchen and Slade were on The Doctors today where they shared that they are pregnant! Gretchen says in her first round of IVF she lost FOURTEEN EMBRYOS. After that she just had to take a break and reassess the situation. How do they even have fourteen embryos? That’s a lot to store and worry over.
Ah, they were never implanted. Did they just leave them out of the freezer by accident or something? I don’t understand how you can “lose” fourteen embryos?!
Seven weeks ago, she was implanted and the embryo is viable. Isn’t Seven weeks a bit early to go on TV and announce a pregnancy? I understand they have been trying for four years and this is great and joyous news, but it’s a bit early to be celebrating so publicly. These two have shared their journey on The Doctors for years. You can see all of the history on the The Doctors Youtube channel.
They also filmed the moment they got the news. There were cameras at the doctor’s office and more cameras at their location. Who is filming every little moment in this couple’s life? Is reality TV so addictive that even when they leave the show they hire their own cameraman to follow them around? I suppose the cameras were part of The Doctors production team.
Gretchen says, ” I swear they lie to you about morning sickness. It’s all day sickness. It’s like the worst ever.” Slade and Gretchen both say that hearing the baby’s heartbeat for the first time made it that much more real and exciting.
According to the Internet, Gretchen is forty and Slade is 45. Are you surprised that Gretchen is finally pregnant?
