In the Season Three premiere of “The Kardashians,” Kourtney Kardashian Barker made an announcement regarding her and her husband Travis Barker’s journey with IVF. Kardashian Barker revealed that they have decided to put an end to their pursuit of IVF treatment.
Since the show’s first season, the couple has been trying to conceive a child together. However, in the recent premiere, Kardashian Barker, 44, shared that she now believes in leaving their family planning in the hands of God.
Expressing her thoughts, Kardashian Barker mentioned feeling pressure to freeze her eggs when she was 38 or 39 years old, before she started dating Barker. She revealed that during that time, they were able to successfully retrieve seven eggs. However, most of them did not survive the thawing process, and none of them developed into viable embryos.
Kardashian Barker went on to discuss the misconceptions surrounding egg freezing. She wanted to highlight that it is not a guaranteed solution and can lead to disappointment for those who view it as a fail-safe option.
It’s important to note that Kardashian Barker is already a mother to three children from her previous relationship with Scott Disick: Mason, 13, Penelope, 10, and Reign, 8. Travis Barker also has two children, Landon, 19, and Alabama, 17, from his previous marriage to Shanna Moakler.
During the premiere, Kardashian Barker also addressed the toll that the IVF journey has taken on her body and mental health. She mentioned that the hormonal treatments have impacted her health, and she has experienced emotional challenges throughout the process. Kardashian Barker emphasized that her priority is to find happiness and be a good parent to her existing children. She expressed that they are now embracing the belief that whatever is meant to be will happen.
These recent statements echo Kardashian Barker’s sentiments from the first season of “The Kardashians,” where she previously shared her struggles and dissatisfaction with the IVF experience. She spoke about the side effects of the medication, feeling moody and hormonal, and not fully like herself.
However, it’s important to note that her perspective on IVF may have evolved since the show finished filming for the third season. Kardashian Barker recently posted a photo on social media embracing her body during the IVF process. Although the timing of the photo was not specified, it suggests that she is embracing her journey and body regardless of the outcome.
In addition, Kardashian Barker shared several pictures celebrating her friend’s birthday on social media, indicating that she is focused on enjoying life and supporting her loved ones.
Ultimately, Kardashian Barker’s decision to step away from IVF signifies a shift in her approach to family planning. She now trusts in a higher power and is open to whatever path lies ahead.
