Today Show editor Bobbie Thomas said Wednesday that she is pregnant after publicly struggling with infertility problems.
Thomas, 39, said on the show that she’s approximately five weeks pregnant.
“It’s so hard to still believe,” she said. “I’m nervous because anything could happen.”
In November, she had a successful embryo transfer that led her to having a viable pregnancy.
“It’s very exciting, of course, and we’re just trying to stay positive,” her husband Michael noted. “It’s been a challenge, it’s not for the faint of heart.”
Thomas has talked about her struggle with infertility in the past.
“While starting a family is something my husband, Michael, and I are excited about, the journey to get there has, so far, been a little different than what we anticipated,” she wrote on the Today Show’s website in June.
At the time, she said she would be trying out IVF.
“When it became clear that IVF was our best bet for conceiving, I went through a number of emotional reactions — scared, sad, optimistic, overwhelmed, eager, nervous, and then through all of them all over again. (And this was before I actually started taking hormones!)” she said.
After the announcement, Thomas will have to make it through the next several weeks without any complications. Her doctor, Dr. Sheeva Talebian, also said they need to get a “good fetal heartbeat.”
