Last week I sat down with my lunch and I couldn't find anything good on TV, so I began searching the on demand section and found the first episode of the new season was there. Wondering how their journey was going I decided to watch....
All I can say is oh.my.gosh. (spoiler alert) I cannot imagine going through what they went through. First of all, they had already (prior to this taping) geared up for two retrievals and sadly had to cancel them due to a poor response. They finally had two good follicles during a monitoring ultrasound in Texas, so they traveled to LA where they were actually having the retrieval done. When they arrived at the clinic the doctor wanted to take a look via ultrasound at what they were dealing with and only found a single follicle and determined that Jen had already ovulated the other. In the 15 minutes it took to prepare her for the procedure to drain the other follicle she ovulated that one too.
I seriously can't even imagine that happening.
SO CLOSE. What is heart breaking is it isn't even an option for them to scurry back to their hotel room and have sex in order to catch those eggies that just dropped. Instead she will have to endure all of those drugs again in preparation to do this all over.
