<p><span></span>In an exclusive interview with <em>Life & Style</em>, <a href="http://dynamic.bauerpublishing.com/mt-search.fcgi?blog_id=2&tag=giuliana rancic&limit=20&IncludeBlogs=2"><strong>Giuliana Rancic</strong></a> confesses that although she's beaten breast cancer, her baby plans can't just pick up where they left off. Sadly, Giuliana reveals, her plans for parenthood are on hold.</p>
"I've had to put my health before my baby dream," Giuliana confesses in the new issue of Life & Style. "My cancer diagnosis added another layer to it that we didn't see coming."
Giuliana discovered she had breast cancer last September, just as she was about to undergo a third round of in vitro fertilization. While her double-mastectomy surgery was successful, doctors warn that IVF, which temporarily raises estrogen levels, can stimulate the growth of breast-cancer cells. For that reason, many oncologists recommend a woman be cancer-free for five years before trying to get pregnant.
Though Giuliana admits "putting my baby dream on hold was devastating," she's not giving up. "Whether you adopt or use a surrogate or have a child naturally, all that matters is you have a child, so we're open to everything," she tells Life & Style. "We know that we'll definitely have children one day."
"We're just taking it day by day," Giuliana admits. "The most important thing is to focus on my health."
