Guiliana (sp) from E TV and Bill were just on and they are starting IVF next week. She even mentioned how hollywood doesn't speak about MA and how a 42 yr old woman ends up with twins... so true.

They actually have a show on Style TV. I keep meaning to watch it but always forget.

I was at work but my Dh was flipping through the channels and saw it. He called me and said it was a really good show. I wish I could have seen it!

I don't watch the View, but I wish I had seen that one! It's so rare to hear anyone in hollywood talk about it. They may say vaguely that they had trouble conceiving, or they may just be 42 with non-identical twins, but you never hear them outright say "we did IVF." Good for them! With something like 12% of couples having fertility problems in America, you'd think you'd hear about it a little more!

I'm glad that she is talking about it publicly! I do wonder, though, how it will be portrayed on their reality show (I have only ever watched one episode). I hope they don't minimize the emotional aspects of going through something like IVF, and I hope they represent the process in a respectful manner.

I have seen a few of the E show with Julina and Bill on it, her HSG test and when they started follistim for IUI and they didn't know how to use the pen... all very real things, but I haven't seen any emotional breakdowns about it from her (also haven't seen all the shows). She took follistim 150 iu for the first IUI and ended up with EIGHT follicles and they still did IUI. They have been trying one year at this point. I am curious to see how much of the IVF they portray on their show. I am happy to see her be so open with TTC, nice to see someones journey on TV!

Dh and I are addicted to Juilana and Bill! We love that they are such a real couple and talk openly about everything! Like Bill had to poke her with the follistim and she reacted the same way I did before I had to poke myself with the hcG trigger..she was terrified! I am not afraid of needles, but there's still something about that first MA stick that's scary!

Their show is on sunday nights on style network (its 235 on direct tv)....we LOVEEE it
