Jaime King Reveals 5 Miscarriages, 5 Rounds of IVF

Hart of Dixie star Jaime King is opening up about her struggles with fertility.

The actress, 35, took to Instagram Friday and explained the painful lengths she went to in order to get pregnant with her son James, now 9 months.

“For all the women out there who think they are alone in this #youarenotalone #ihavetobebravetosupportothers #realtalkhatterrifiesus,” she captioned a picture of the long note.

In the note, Jaime revealed that she spent eight years struggling with infertility before welcoming her firstborn child.

“8 yrs of pain & undiagnosed PSOC [Polycystic ovary syndrom] & Endometriosis,” she wrote. “5 miscarriages, 5 rounds of IVF [In vitro fertilization], 26 IUIs [Intrauterine insemination], most with no outcome, 4-1/2 years of trying to conceive, 26 hours of brutal labor, early delivery b/c of sudden preeclampsia, tearing and tearing after the stitches were in once I was home.”

While this is the first in-depth explanation of her health condition, in May she spoke with ABC News about her struggles.

“This baby was a long time in the making and I feel like the universe put a little extra magic dust in him,” she shared. “He’s like the happiest, most joyful, social and loving [baby].”
