Little Couple 10 ThingsLittle Couple 10 Things, Pregnancy joy turned to sadness of the stars of TLC The couple little, as they have learned in the episode of the Tuesday of the successful transfer of an embryo to her replacement, who later aborted her unborn child.

Dr. Jennifer Arnold and her husband Bill Klein, who both have skeletal dysplasia, a bone disease that causes stunting of growth, have documented their journey to parenthood in the program. We decided to use a surrogate to have a baby, due to the challenges of a pregnancy could mean for your health.

In the season finale, Arnold Klein and learned her replacement was waiting. “After becoming pregnant, madness came to us not knowing what to do with the baby’s room, making sure that our substitute was to get your daily dose of vitamins baby,” Klein told People.

However, since the shooting of her visit to the doctor happy, the couple lost surrogate pregnancy. Klein had to contact her wife, a neonatologist at Texas Children’s Hospital while she was at work to break the news heartbreaking.

“I did not want her to be the last person to know,” he says. “Ugly or happy, you need to be told. It was a tough day, and Jen took longer than originally expected.”

“I cried my eyes,” Arnold told People. “I deal with families who lose their babies and I cry with them, but I thought it would be stronger. Nothing can fully prepare for all that when it comes to you.”

When the couple was able to join the end of the day, as they mourned, crying and comforting each other and after talking with family and friends. The next day they decided to continue trying to raise a family, with both surrogacy and adoption as possible paths.

“Bill was a rock, and he held me through everything,” says Arnold. “The next morning, I realized I needed to try again. We were so close and so pregnant with ultrasound in good condition, so it was horrible for her to finish. But I could not have said has been done . A lot of the family asked, “Will you go through this again? And my answer is, yes. I would be sad if I try again. ”

Because both Arnold Klein and carriers of a single gene by type of skeletal dysplasia, it is possible that both could pass the gene to their children, which can be deadly to your baby. To avoid this, the embryos are genetically tested before implantation.

If there is no skeletal dysplasia genes are transmitted, the baby would be healthy and of average size, and whether a gene is passed, the baby would be a person unhealthy.

In addition, Jen is taking medication to stimulate her ovaries, which produce only half of the eggs as expected.

“We appreciate all the prayers and positive thinking,” says Arnold, difficult to share her story with the world. “That is comforting and gives us strength. When we lost the pregnancy, we wondered how we would handle the situation. However, by sharing our story, whether positive or negative, I think it can help others going through similar things.”

Ultimately, becoming a parent is what means most. “We are in love with each other and support each other we’ll be fine,” he says. “We look forward to being parents, and that’s the goal here through surrogacy and adoption. We are not trying to do yet.”

Until that day, Klein cherishes life with his wife. “I could go in the next 50 or 100 years with just the two of us, because we have a great relationship,” he says. “Few people are so lucky to have that from the time to meet that person, and all that adds to our relationship is very exciting.”

Challenges – both past and future – will only make your bond stronger. “I really feel crazy lucky to have found each other,” says Arnold. “We were both at a point of giving up. Being a small person, everything is a struggle, and it is wonderful when you get something you really wanted. Do not let go so easily.”
