Dylan Dreyer Is Pregnant Expecting Her Second Child With Secondary Infertility – The TODAY co-anchor and NBC daytime show’s meteorologist revealed that she is pregnant with her second child after struggling a miscarriage.
Dylan Dreyer Is Pregnant Expecting Her Second Child With Secondary Infertility:
Dylan Dreyer, 37, and husband Brian Fichera are expecting their second child with secondary infertility in January.
She announced the news Wednesday on Today. “The day I was going to start my IVF … the doctor called and said, ‘Don’t take anything, you’re pregnant,” she said Wednesday. “I’m just so happy now, I’ve been keeping this secret so long.”
“I was just waiting for the phone call from Dr. Reichman, to tell me how much of each drug to use,” Dylan Dreyer, 37, recalls. “Instead, when he called, he said, ‘Well, you can’t start IVF because you’re already pregnant!’ We were in complete shock. We couldn’t believe it!”
What Dylan Dreyer Wrote About My Miscarriage:
Dylan wrote her personal story about her struggles with secondary infertility.
“So many women are going through their own fertility issues, and I want to open up the conversation to get us all talking instead of sneaking onto that baby chat room and scrolling endlessly through the comments hoping to stumble upon someone going through a similar situation,” she wrote about her struggle. “Well, here I am, putting myself out there, and maybe it will give just one other woman the motivation to keep plugging along.”
Dylan Dreyer, was actually pregnant while opening up about her secondary infertility and miscarriage on the Today show in April, when Fichera and Dr. Reichman joined her to discuss the journey.
“I know there are women who struggle to have one baby and here I am wanting more. I do not take for granted what God has given me,” she wrote for TODAY Parents. “That being said, we want to give Calvin a sibling. The way Cal loves on other babies and asks to hold them and gently touches their arms shows me that he would be an amazing older brother…. We have so much love to give and we want to grow our family. We thought it would be easy to do that, and it’s not.
She revealed that she suffered low egg count, doctor advises, once I’m out, I’m out and then it’s up to us to decide what steps to take.
Meanwhile Dylan Dreyer, 37, had two only options:
1. Keep trying and hope for a natural pregnancy. We could very well get pregnant easily and go on to have our second child. However, since I’m 37, the risk of a miscarriage increases. Having another miscarriage means time keeps ticking away and because of my low egg count, I don’t have the luxury of time to keep trying.
2. Go right to IVF. This would greatly reduce my risk of a miscarriage and, barring any other issues I’m not aware of, be the fastest way to have another baby.
She informed that she had absolutely perfect nieces and nephews born via IVF so clearly she abled to get confirmed about health child welcomed in family by IVF.
Dylan Dreyer, 37, finally thought, “I don’t know how I really feel right this second. I guess I’m excited to start the IVF process, albeit a little disappointed that my body couldn’t do this naturally.”

Dylan Dreyer captioned for her husband, “I love this man even more for being able to share his feelings about our journey through secondary infertility. I even learned something new!”
“The way Calvin looks up to his daddy is the ultimate gift…even in his loud shirts and while playing cornhole. There’s no one better and I’m so thankful for our perfect little family.”
