The couple decided to try in vitro fertilization which Chrissy said, “Emotionally, it could be really hard.” They didn’t have success right away and had to attempt IVF a couple of times. “You don’t want to get your hopes up, but of course, you do,” she said.

“One of the things that saved us is that we never did that real fertility thing, where you’re looking at the ovulation clock and saying, ‘Honey, get home; we have to do it right now. John would say, ‘Let’s never be that couple that has to schedule sex, where we put it on the calendar and say, OK, this is our night.’ So before we did IVF, even if we went a few days or a week, our feeling was, it’s cool, who cares?,” she explained.
