It has been a TOUGH couple for Giuliana Rancic! But, somehow the E! host has managed to stay positive.
While the star was dealing public struggle to get pregnant with husband Bill Rancic, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Both events took a huge emotional toll on Giuliana — though, now she believes her infertility was a blessing.
Here's why: if it wasn't for IVF protocol 36-year-old Rancic would have waited till she was 40 (like most women) to have her first mammogram and her cancer wouldn't have been discovered. She says:
“Do you realize that if we had gotten pregnant, I would have been done? That would have catapulted this cancer into another level. By the time I was 40 or 41, I’m scared to think about what they would have told me. I now know the reason why I wasn’t ever supposed to get pregnant.”
It really was a close call! If she HAD gotten pregnant without knowing about the cancer, the prolonged hormone surge that comes with her fertility treatments would have accelerated the growth of her cancer. CRAZY, right??
Giuliana says that she's certain she'll be able to get pregnant now:
“Right now we’re just on lockdown. We’re not doing IVF for at least a couple of months just to give my body a chance to recover. This year, yes, our journey to have a baby will continue.”
We wish her a speedy recovery and fast pregnancy! She totes deserves it!
