Giuliana Rancic Reveals: Pregnancy Could Have Killed Me

Giuliana Rancic Breast Cancer

The breast cancer survivor says she ‘dodged the biggest bullet’ by not getting pregnant!

Desperate for a baby and ready to start IVF treatments, E! correspondent Giuliana Rancic went to a doctor-ordered mammogram last fall and received shocking news — she was in the early stages of breast cancer. But now she says she’s grateful she wasn’t pregnant! “Do you realize that if we had gotten pregnant, I would have been done?” she says in a new interview with Michigan Avenue. “That would have catapulted this cancer into another level.”

At 36 years old, Giuliana was four years away from her first mammogram, but she went because it’s standard IVF protocol. “By the time I was 40 or 41, I’m scared to think about what they would have told me,” she explains. I now know the reason why I wasn’t ever supposed to get pregnant.”

Although she and her husband Bill Rancic still want a baby, she knows she’s lucky it hasn’t happened for them yet. “People come up and they have sadness in their eyes, and I think, at a time when everyone’s looking at me with pity, I look at myself as lucky,” she explains. “I think I just dodged the biggest bullet of my life.”

But now she’s ready to refocus on trying for a child.

“Right now we’re just on lockdown,” she says. “We’re not doing IVF for at least a couple of months just to give my body a chance to recover. This year, yes, our journey to have a baby will continue.”

Dear Giuliana and Bill, I hope you’ll keep in patience waiting the baby for you. I’ll pray for Giuliana would be pregnant again and have the children someday. To be honest I disagree about surrogate mother. There’s so many unlucky children need our help and love, they need to be adopted, taken care and well-educated so they will grow up in happiness and give a lot of contributions for the parents, religion, and country. I hope both Giuliana and Bill consider about this. Thank you.

Hi “G”. I remember when I watch this specific program and you spoke to your therapist and I remember you told that you don’t know why are you being punish like this. Well, I can tell you why. God knew you wouldn’t have survived being pregnant and having breast cancer. So you weren’t being punished for anything God knows best. I’m 34 and I’m going through the exact same thing but you know what keeps my head up everyday, the thing is that I can go on my knees and ask God that if its in His favour to blessed us with a child because He said in His word that” whatever you ask in my name you shall receive” so I pray for you and I love your show.

Hi Guiliana, Me and my husband had problems trying to concieve but no money to try ivf so i look into other things and found this Ovulation watch, and i got pregnant finally. It worked. My son is a year and half now. I am very thin and dont get my monthly regularly and i guess ovulated at diferent times so with this watch helped me know exactlly when i was ovualting and you only can get pregnant one to two days out of the month. anyways check it out it wont hurt. No needles involved, just a little patients. Best wishes (ovwatch.com) just to warn you when i finally did get pregnant i threw-up for the first 20 weeks of my pregnancy. But having my son is definetly worth every throw up and doctor vist i had to go to cause i was so sick. :o)
