Katie Price Reveals Her Struggle To Conceive A Child With Alex Reid

| Filed under: Baby BlabberLove LineJordanSad Sad


Despite having three children already from other relationships, Katie Price recently opened up about her struggle to conceive a child with husband Alex Reid in her new book You Only Live Once, and reveals that the couple even went in for fertility treatments!

She writes:

"After marrying Alex I had only one thing on my mind - having another baby. I'd love to have another four, in fact. But by April 2010, after we had been trying for eight months, I became so worried we made an appointment with a fertility doctor.

We were having ICSI (Intra-cytoplasmic Sperm Injection) which has a 65% success rate. It would involve me injecting hormones to stimulate egg production.

After two weeks, once the eggs were ready, the doctor would retrieve them. Just before that procedure, Alex would provide a sperm sample. An individual sperm is selected and injected into each egg. Then, when the embryos have started to grow, it's time to put them back into the uterus. I was anxious, but I thought, 'Surely this will work as I've had three children?'

As I left the clinic I felt a surge of excitement. I thought, 'I'm pregnant!' And in a way I was, because now I had the embryos inside me all they had to do was grow.

I convinced myself I was having twins. I didn't care about feeling so bloated, uncomfortable and unattractive. If I was pregnant then none of those things mattered. For the first few days I held on to the feeling of optimism, but then the waiting got to me. Then I started experiencing stomach cramps and bleeding. Alex and I had been so hopeful, so excited, and now all our dreams were dashed. I know I'm lucky to have three beautiful children. While Alex doesn't yet have a biological child, he is still part of a family with kids. I am sure we'll have a baby together one day. If we aren't successful in our attempts then we will adopt."

Our heart certainly goes out to them during what we can imagine to be a very difficult time, but we hope that both Katie and Alex focus on the three children that they already have.

There's not one single right way to have a family!

    U are taking this nice thing too far

  2. 2

    The world's environmental problems are due to a growing population that uses up too many resources. Stop breeding and take care of what you have or adopt.

  3. 3

    am i the only one who thinks this woman should NOT be breeding any more???

    She is an awful parent, and pretty horrid human being…the world doesnt need any more of her dna, i am certain.

    she should try focusing on learning how to PROPERLY PARENT the three children she does have.

  4. 4

    She has admitted to having numerous abortions! She doesn't need or deserve another. Grow up & take care of the ones you already have!

  5. 5

    That woman shouldn't be allowed to breed.

  6. 6

    don't fuck with nature…maybe there's a higher reason for you not getting pregnant the natural way…you already have kids…appreciate them…

    Katie Price is exactly what a gay man would like to look like if he was female. Lay OFF her Perez, you jealous bitch!

  8. 8

    If the guy keeps boinking you up the bum, conception will be unlikely (and he´s prolly gay).

  9. 9

    she had one abortion because it was with someone who didn't want a child voldemom and lost two with peter. She is a very good mum and devotes everything to harvey i hope katie and alex manage to have a child together.

  10. 10

    someone should tell her to NOT HAVE ANYMORE CHILDREN. she is a horrible mother and a horrible role model for the three kids she already has, does she really need to have another? Really? And why is she sharing something like this with the world? Isn't this a private matter?

  11. 11

    she's insane trying to have more kids, this whore can't even take care of her other three kids. All she wants to do is stay focused in the magazine tabloids and cash in on all the "photo shoots" of her pregnancy, then having the baby, babies first photos etc .. She's just a fame whore, If it was that difficult for her then why is she speaking about this publicly ?

  12. 12

    Who gives a fuck? Her reproductive system is probably not working due to the crushing weight of her huge fake tits.

  13. 13

    to have a baby theu have to sleep together…Alex is a big gay fame whore, he's only with katie for the fame and the money.

  14. 14

    Yeah, this whore seriously needs to stop with the kids. She drank and did drugs while pregnant with her oldest, who is now severely handicapped. She's had multiple abortions and not to mention all the miscarriages. She got pissed one mother's day a few years ago, was photographed at 4 a.m. passed out in a cafe and it turned out she was pregnant at the time. Absolute FILTH!

  15. 15

    Incredible that she opted to do IVF as it would involve her injecting her stomach daily for 10 days with numerous fertility meds - and I hear it is quite painful…she would find out 14 days later if it was successful.

    Perez, you have said in the past that she is a terrible parent, for example, in regards to such things as dressing her 2 year old daughter up in makeup and straightening her hair, as well as not letting Pete see their kids. She hasn't done anything to change her lifestyle, so why have you changed your opinion of her and say you 'feel' for her.

  17. 17

    She barely cares for the ones she has already. Sad situation this is. She should be stopped.

    ICSI is HUGELY expensive. She'll probably burn thru 100K before the next miscarriage.

  20. 20

    people need to stop breeding

  21. 21

    Sounds like he has a spermy issue. Injecting a sperm into an egg only happens when there are some poor quality sperm involved.

  22. 22

    seriously perez ur such a friggen phoney,all nice ever since the gays & their suicides.

  23. 23

    In regards to her ignorant comment: "I am sure we'll have a baby together one day. If we aren't successful in our attempts then we will adopt."

    Excuse me but adoption should be a well thought out life decision, not a second option dropped into conversation only to be sold at a later date to the highest bidding tabloid… What an attention whore!
