As she began to prep an injection, the 43-year-old bride said: “I’m here in California and I wasn’t going to share this right now, I was going to give it a while to practice but I started injections yesterday.
“And it’s been really rough on me and if anybody is out there that knows anything about IVF, or if there’s a chat group or a support group, I would love to know where to find it because I’m feeling very alone right now.”
Christy began to cry as she revealed that she was also happy because she wants to have a rainbow baby, which is a baby that is born after another is miscarried or passes away.

The reality TV star began to inject herself on her stomach as she compared it to getting a tetanus shot on your stomach.
“It hurts so bad and I don’t know why I’m crying but it hurt so freakin’ bad,” she said. “I’m so scared.”
She further revealed she will be undergoing an egg retrieval procedure next to week as she wants to try and have another baby with Gonzo.
Gonzo and Christy got engaged two weeks ago[/caption]
Earlier this month, Gonzo popped the question as he dropped down on one knee before Christy shared the news of their engagement.
The reality star posted several photos of the special moment as Gonzo got down on one knee and the couple shared happy tears.
The LifeTime star captioned her post: “We’re Engaged! I’m so happy to tell the world that this wonderful man got down on one knee and asked me to be his forever.
“It was such a heart felt moment, and evening. I can’t wait to share our love story with you, as we continue on this beautiful journey of growth, love, and hope. #engaged#happiness.”
They lost their newborn daughter, Violet, in 2020[/caption]
Christy and her fiancée suffered a terrible tragedy just over a year ago when they lost their firstborn child two weeks after her birth.
The baby tragically passed on March 20th, 2020, and the couple recently took a beach trip to honor Violet on the anniversary of her passing.
The TV personality shared several photos of the mourning parents as they enjoyed The Maritime Aquarium and the beach in Norwalk, Connecticut.
Gonzo also shared moments during their trip, as he captioned his sentimental post: “Christy and I took the day to honor our sweet daughter as she passed away one year ago today.
“We went to the @maritimeaquarium together appreciating life and living it one day at a time. #VioletEva.”
She was born prematurely[/caption]
Christy and Gonzo have been open about their crippling loss, and they initially shared the devastating news in a statement last year.
“It is with our deepest sorrow that we send our baby girl Violet Eva Carazo to play with the angels.
“We were able to spend two weeks with our sweet baby girl and for that we are forever thankful.”
This was Gonzo’s first child[/caption]
The couple revealed that they wanted her memorial to be in New York where Gonzo and his family reside.
She explained: “We are going to have a memorial of some type and spread her ashes.
“I was hoping the ocean. I’m going to bring Violet’s ashes to New York as soon as it’s safe for me to fly.”
The California native’s daughter was born premature at 33 weeks, contributing to her health complications.
Christy also shares her 21-year-old daughter Autumn and son Trenton with her ex-husband Todd Gibel.
