For couples struggling with infertility, the road to pregnancy is emotionally and often physically painful, not to mention isolating. Macy, also known as @martinisandmedicine on Instagram, posted her beautiful IVF pregnancy announcement, and it is giving hope to many couples dealing with an infertility struggle. In the touching photo, Macy surrounds her ultrasound photo with the syringes and pill bottles that were used in just one round of IVF.
“We’re some of the lucky ones. It only took 4 years, 3 miscarriages, depression, 107 hormone injections, one surgery, two procedures, over 100 suppositories, and several thousand dollars to get our baby,”says Macy on her blog, giving readers an idea of the struggle many families face when it comes to infertility. “I’m so in love I can hardly stand it. There will be hard days, I know. We’ve longed for them for years.”
Macy is being flooded with comments of support on her Instagram. One follower said “I have absolutely loved following your story on the IF board, PAIF, and our BMB. You gave me so much hope on my journey.”
Another person also resonated with Macy’s story. Mrsposada wrote “thanks for sharing! Went thru the same thing, ttc (trying to conceive) for 7 years and finally had our baby girl 2 1/2 years ago. Every time I look at her, I know it was all worth and would do it all over again if I had to! Go luck and enjoy the journey.”
