On Thursday’s episode of The Kardashians, which is currently streaming on Hulu, Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker discussed their IVF adventure.
Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian are hopeful about expanding their family.
On Thursday’s episode of The Kardashians, the engaged pair revealed up about their in vitro fertilisation (IVF) journey, disclosing that they will be having their first egg retrieval since starting the process.
“We are really excited because it’s the first time in six months of pursuing fertility treatments that we have made it to an egg retrieval,” Kardashian, 43, said in a confessional, praising her doctor, Dr. Wood.
“I feel like it’s a blessing that we’re here and even able to be doing this,” she told Barker, 46, “since the last two times we tried, we weren’t able to get to this level.”
In a confessional, Kardashian continued, “I adore being a mom.” “It would be amazing to have that experience with Travis. I know he’s a fantastic father. One of the reasons I fell in love with him is because of this.”
“I Feel Bad,” Kourtney Kardashian says when her kids aren’t invited to her proposal.
Dr. Wood then gives the couple some excellent news at their appointment: Kardashian has a “nice”-sized 19 mm ovarian follicle, indicating that the retrieval can go ahead.
“We have many good babies from one good follicle,” he informed the Poosh founder, “so maybe it’ll be high quality and [produce] a normal embryo.”
“Even if Dr. Wood is only seeing one follicle that stands out,” Kardashian said, “the fact that we even have [that] gives me a lot of optimism.”
Her rocker fiancé from Blink-182 agreed: “It’s the most thrilling thing I’ve ever experienced. I’m overjoyed. To us, family is everything. It would be amazing to be able to create something together.”
“So, hopefully, when they retrieve the egg today, they make an embryo, which takes six days, they test the embryo, they [transfer] the embryo [into the uterus], and then it [implants and] becomes a pregnancy,” Kardashian stated in a confessional. “All we need now is one good egg, which is currently in God’s hands.”
Kardashian and Barker have been candid about their IVF journey, which they are doing to add to their blended family of five children. (Kardashian has three children: sons Reign Aston, 7, and Mason Dash, 12, as well as daughter Penelope Scotland, 912) and daughter Alabama Luella, 16, and son Landon Asher, 18.)
Kardashian informed mom Kris Jenner that the process was “terrible” and that “Travis and I want to have a baby and so my doctor took us down this road of trying IVF and it hasn’t been the most amazing experience” before adding in a confessional about it on The Kardashians last month.
The couple, who got engaged last year, “decided to try and get pregnant after they had dated for a few months,” according to a source, and began the IVF process “last summer.”
“It’s been a whirlwind of emotions. They didn’t expect it to be as difficult as it has been “According to the insider, “Kourtney has found it particularly challenging. They still want to start a family.”
According to the insider, “Travis, on the other hand, is not putting any pressure on Kourtney. He only wishes for her to be content and healthy.”
