After a year of trying to conceive with no success, Giuliana Rancic and her husband, Apprentice winner Bill Rancic, are about to start IVF treatment.
“We’ve [already] done IUI; we’ve done quite a few things and we start IVF next week,” Giuliana revealed on The View this week. “We’re on it.”
The 35-year-old E! hostess says that she’s been trying to put on some weight in hopes that it might help.
“My diagnosis was I wasn’t ovulating consistently and so my doctor recommended that I gain weight in order to start ovulating consistently,” she said. “He said five to 10 pounds, which I know isn’t a big deal but I had to bite that bullet because I work out every day of my life. I love feeling good, waking up, working out.”
It’s a point that The View host Whoopi Goldberg took issue with, saying, “You want to have a baby, you need to prepare your body for that other person who’s going to be there. There’s no ‘buts.’”
Bill and Giuliana, who tied the knot in 2007, put off starting a family while they focused on their careers. But when they decided to have a baby they realized “it’s not as easy as we thought it was going to be,” Giuliana says.
