    I know pretty pointless post, but I just read that her and Alex Reid are having a baby, just as they were about to start IVF.

    She was told due to years of bulimia, she will be unable to have children.

    I was told my chances were low too for the very reason so I can understand her excitement!!

    Just wanted to share.. positive little story :)

    Apparently not, she was on holiday before she started IVF and turns out she was pregnant all along. (Although I guess, who knows with celeb gossip which is true hey lol)

    My OH and I had decided WE were going to try even though we were both pretty sure I couldn't have children, but started to work out this "ovulation date crap" as we called it (we didn't have much clue about it before research haha!) and took ovulation tests, as soon as it said I was ovulating, we tried...

    Turns out, I was already 5 weeks pregnant!!

    Funny what the world has in store for you without you even knowing it ey! xxx

    We were just discussing this at work! Thinking how hard it was for us trying for so long I;d hate to think how hard it is for celebs who have the world knowing what they are doing! glad it turned out good for her though.

    I don't believe a word of it. One minute she's infertile, the next pregnant - and she's only been with him for 5 minutes. I reckon it's all just for publicity and money. Why else would you tell the world you can't have kids? They're both attention seeking non-entities and I feel quite sorry for the poor child that will have its photo sold for any money making opportunity.

    Wow - that was quite a rant wasn't it? Must be particularly hormonal today!!

    haha I love hormones ;)

    I genuinely believe it is.. well, genuine haha! But then partly cos I know she WAS bulimic, and I was told a similar thing..

    But yes, I don't know why they wanted to have a baby so soon and try IVF after not long..

    Mind you, I hadn't been with my fiance that long either..

    I dunno, i'm biased I guess cos I can relate, and quite like her haha! But I see your point

    It kinda makes me wonder if she was actually TOLD she was infertile or she just assumed, knowing that this can happen with bulimia.. It seems abit quick. Find out you can't have kids then bam 5 minutes later your miracle baby comes along :shrug:

    That's exactly what I thought too when I read it.

    This is the same person who tipped off the paps where and when she'd be in a park so they could picture her and that Rav fella fighting!

    Having faced infertility I pity anyone facing but her story all seems a but staged.

    She was told she had a really low ovarian reserve. She rectified herself and said that she was told to hurry up or should struggle and that bulimia had nothing to do with it. She said it on an interview!
    I am happy for her though :) xxxxxxx
