Pregnancy Announcement Surrounded by IVF Syringes

The Touching Story Behind This Beautiful IVF Pregnancy Announcement Is Even Prettier Than the Photo Itself

The struggle to bring a life into this world isn't one that's just an emotional challenge; it's also one that takes a major physical toll on a woman's body. One excited mom-to-be captured this powerful sentiment perfectly with an emotional pregnancy announcement that shows exactly what she endured just to post this photo.

In the striking image, Macy surrounds a coveted ultrasound photo with all of the syringes and pill bottles involved in just one round of in vitro fertilization. "There aren't blessings in infertility. There are blessings in spite of infertility," Macy reflected. Any woman who has ever experienced infertility knows it can be extremely lonely. Macy personally knows just how isolating each new pregnancy announcement posted online can feel to someone else hoping to conceive.

Instead of just sharing the joyous news, she's using her own struggles to hopefully inspire others who are feeling broken and hopeless — just as she was mere months before. "It only took four years, three miscarriages, depression, 107 hormone injections, one surgery, two procedures, over 100 suppositories, and several thousand dollars to get our baby," Macy wrote. "You might ask how I say that we're lucky. We're lucky because we get to have a baby."
