After some “low moments”, Heather has had some positive news.
The realtor and reality star took to Instagram to explain that her doctors were able to retrieve seven eggs, which means that they will be able to create nine embryos.
Heather wrote: “We are officially home from egg retrieval and got great news from my doctor.
“Initially Tarek and I thought we were going to get 2 eggs from this retrieval but we ended up with 7 eggs, 6 ended up being good. We thawed 4 eggs from my egg retrieval we did 2 years ago. 3 ended up making it…”
She continued: “So we will create 9 embryos. Usually only 50% make it through the process but we won’t know yet. First update will be in 5 days and by 2 weeks we know how many healthy embryos we got! I can’t wait!”
Heather explained that the positive news follows a few “low moments” she has experienced since trying to get pregnant.
She said: “I’ve had a few low moments throughout this journey but I’ve tried to stay as positive as possible and it shows that the body is incredible and can do wonders.”
Heather also thanked her followers and fans for their support along the way.
“Thank you for all your love and support as this is a very personal journey that I chose to share to create awareness,” she wrote.
She also gave a shoutout to her husband Tarek El Moussa.
“I also want to thank my amazing hubby for being there for me at all times and being my rock,” she said. “He truly is my dream come true and I’m just so excited for what’s to come for our family.”
Heather and Tareq married last October in Montecito, California.
