Holy shizz! Science is AWESOME!!
The best part of making history is when it all works out in the end! Jessica Menkhausen, 33, made history by having an in vitro fertilization (IVF) on LIVE TV!
And guess what? Even though she made history just by doing it at all, it really DID work out in the end! She's PREGNANT!
After so much time struggling, we can't even imagine how this feels!!
Here's what she said:
'In the next few weeks we'll do an ultrasound and by that time we'll be able to hear the baby, or babies', heartbeats and hopefully see one or two fetuses in the womb.'
Apparently her fiance, Derek Manion, has already started to pick out names!
It was only 16 days ago that she was filmed by Today under anesthesia, as eggs were harvested from her ovaries on LIVE TV.
You can see that procedure (above)!
We are SO happy for them! We hope everyone ends up being happy and healthy!
So cool! So inspirational!!
