Popular YouTuber Struggling With Infertility Films Her Reaction After Taking A Pregnancy Test

All across the world, thousands of women struggle with infertility and getting pregnant. Out of 100 couples in the United States, about 12 to 13 of them have trouble becoming pregnant. About ten in 100 (6.1-million) women in the United States ages 15–44 have difficulty becoming pregnant or staying pregnant, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

There are some options for women who struggle with infertility.

For many women, procedures like IVF are available. Women can also freeze their eggs to see if they are usable for surrogacy. Many times, women also turn to adoption when they struggle with infertility.

While there are many ways women can start a family, struggling with infertility can be very hard on women. Some feel guilt and shame for not being able to get pregnant easily.

And, some struggle for years trying to conceive.

When going through IVF and other treatments, not only does it take a lot of time, but it also costs a lot of money. Then, there's also the emotional toll that comes with infertility. It can be a lot for families to handle.

One beauty vlogger on YouTube with a ton of followers has been open about her struggles with infertility.

RawBeautyKristi, a beauty vlogger on YouTube with a million subscribers, has been open with her followers about struggling with infertility. She told followers that she struggled for 15 years trying to get pregnant.

June 2020 was a monumental month for her, though.

In a nine-minute video, she announced to her followers that she had hit the one million subscribers on YouTube — which is a huge accomplishment in itself. That showcases just how helpful and popular her videos are.

The beauty vlogger also shared that she found out she is finally pregnant and expecting her first child after 15 years of trying. She was in tears in the video when she was talking about her discovery.

The YouTube video included some heartbreaking moments.

The video even included a clip filmed earlier in the year of her husband, Zack. The video included a part of her talking about coming to terms with the fact that she would not be able to have children.

The vlogger also shared that for the past 12 years, she had filmed every test reaction.

Hoping that one would finally be positive, she filmed all of her pregnancy test results. But, finally, she was able to cry happy tears when she discovered her pregnancy test was positive at last.

In the video's description, she shared her true emotions.

"I had completely 1000000% resigned myself to the fact that this day would NEVER come and I was fine with that. The reaction you see me have is of utter and complete disbelief. I swear.. even as I sit here and write this, I feel like I am in some dream. I don't even know WHEN this will feel real or when this will sink in," she wrote.

Struggling with infertility can be a true nightmare for women.

It's a wonderful experience to finally have your hopes and dreams manifest and share this moment with all of your subscribers and followers. We could not be happier for this mom-to-be!
