I enjoy that show - can certainly relate! A selfish part of me was hoping they'd use DE and bring some positive public attention, but happy for them nonetheless!

I wish they used more accurate terminology. This may be a small point, but I noticed that they talked about the "embryo implantation" procedure instead of "embryo transfer" at one point in the special. Certainly if implantation could be guaranteed we would all experience a lot less heartache! Lol

She had some many failed IVFs that usually means her eggs are no good. Why would her bad eggs be good in a surrogate. She should come clean that she is using donor eggs. Just like Nicole Kidman, Sarah Jessica Parker and now Elisabeth Banks. Elisabeth Banks has failed many IVFs, that means again eggs bad and now her eggs are being used by surrogate. Celebrities will only tell truth about molestation or drug abuse.

And if they used DE or not. Is it possible their embryos ar OK but just not OK in their body? Or were the embryos frozen from an earlier cycle years ago? Or did they use a donor and heaven forbid they come clean! Still am skeptical about Celine..twins with OE at 42, really? I am happy for her but, really - twins after successive failures?
I still have 3 OE embies on ice and refuse to go theough what would be my 8th failure with eggs that are crappy and/or a body that rejects them so it will be very interesting to see what happens with DE and honestly my expectations are extremely low based on my track record.

All these celebrities are post 35 or closer or past 40. They have tried many times, with no success. They have the money to have a baby with partners sperm, so why should they put their bodies thru this treatment. It seems it is the next step in celebrity pregnancy. Look at Alexis Stewart (Martha daughter), she publicly discussed the struggles with IVF post 40 years old with no success. Next has a daughter with her own egg via a surrogate. Doesnt add up, she has old eggs they werent going to work, so she let someone else carry the baby from beginning to end. I am sure they use donor eggs with a surrogate that just carries.

The show doumented her last retrevial right before she was going to do treatment (initially lumpectomy) for her breast cancer, they fertilized them and then froze. When the margins were not clear on one breast they decided to do a double mastectomy/reconstruction. On the advice of doctors they decided to use a GC because of a fear that a hormone surge associated with the FET and pregnancy might cause latent cancer cells to grow. They only had 2 blasts on ice. The fact that they didn't have a lot of embies also speaks to a 37 year old using OE rather than a younger donor.

G had an earlier pg from their first IVF transfer but it ended in mc, possibly abnormal embie(?). I don't remember if the show documented that or not.

However there are many celebs who probably use DE who have not owned up to it.
