We're back for an all-new season! I hope you're as excited as I am to watch because I have a feeling you won't be disappointed. In case you missed it, I just announced my pregnancy with a baby girl and this season I'm going to be sharing my IVF journey with all of you.
Sometimes there's a stigma around the discussion of IVF and infertility, and people feel embarrassed talking about it, so I hope by watching the process throughout the season that people will feel more comfortable and be able to open up. This episode you were able to see my hysteroscopy procedure – and I'm so grateful that my mom was there to comfort me and hold my hand. The part of my hysteroscopy that you didn't see was when the doctor signaled the anesthesiologist to rush to my side to be put completely under in an emergency situation due to the intense amount of pain. I was completely conscious though when the doctor straightened my c shaped uterus out with a straight instrument. He told me that if I had ever gotten an IUD that I would've been the perfect candidate for it to have pierce through my uterus and cause me to bleed internally and possibly lead to death. Unfortunately the viewers didn't see any of this happening, so of course I look like a big wuss!
The scene where I'm going through all of the candles with Jimmy was fun and as you can see, he is preoccupied with the subject right in front of his face - candles! We had just gotten that shipment in our house and we both couldn't wait to open it and we had already talked about IVF a bunch prior to that, so he was understandably distracted. Additionally, Jimmy is the kind of person that likes to get information and not really ask questions. He's not a researcher like I am and sometimes a lot of information is too much information for him! I am the complete opposite!
I'm excited that you finally got to meet Kelly - I wasn't kidding when I said she has diarrhea of the mouth! The scene with her at home with her family was so funny!
I had so much fun at Heather's boat party and thought her idea to have a "love" party was great. I was excited for everyone to meet Kelly, but I was actually shocked when Kelly immediately bonded with Vicki. I warned her that Vicki might be using her since she was the only person left for Vicki to use to weasel her way back into the crew. So far I'm right on point with that thinking...
I hope you loved the first episode because it's just the beginning of a whirlwind season! Can't wait to watch with you next week!
