The model is giving her body a break after two failed cycles

Katie Price has opened up about her IVF ordeal.

She is desperate for a child with second husband, Alex Reid, 35, but conceiving is proving very difficult.

‘Your hormones are up and down and I don’t like needles,’ she explains. ‘My body’s gone
through too much. It’s quite a struggle.’

Katie, 32, is already mum to Harvey, 8, with Dwight Yorke,
and Junior, 5, and Princess, 3, with ex-husband Peter Andre, 37. But she and Alex would like to make a baby together.

‘Me and Alex so want kids. After my wedding I only had one thing on my mind – having another baby,’ she admits.

‘I did it IVF first time and it didn’t work, then we had to wait two months and I thought, oh it might work this time. I’m not on it now, to give my body a rest.

‘It’s tougher on Alex. I’ve already had three kids so he’s wondering, is it me? In my mind I’m like, because of all this stress over the past year and a half, has that made my body think, I’m not ready yet?’
