PREGNANT AFTER 15 YEARS OF INFERTILITY – Q&A

PREGNANT AFTER 15 YEARS OF INFERTILITY – Q&A

Hey guys!! I cannot even believe this is a video that I am able to film, today is a Q&A about finally getting pregnant after YEARS of infertility!!! I am going to answer all of your frequently asked questions, and I will timestamp them as well below in case you want to skip around.

I sort of answer things here and there throughout, discuss my symptoms, how i’ve been feeling mentally, coming to terms with never being a mother and then having to come to terms with the fact that I AM going to be a mom. This has been an absolute emotional rollercoaster, and getting to the point where I can even begin to accept that I am going to have a baby.. we are going to be parents.. is the hardest thing I can explain. I KNEW in my heart and soul I would NEVER get pregnant, so this is a shock to say the absolute least.

I know when I am speaking about this, shock is the main emotion I convey – But DO KNOW that we are SO SO SO unbelievably happy, elated & SO excited. I think when we can FINALLY see that the baby is growing, happy and healthy (at the 20 week ultrasound) I will be able to be FULLY relaxed and be able to accept that this is FULLY HAPPENING. Right now, I still have a LOT of anxiety about my body failing me and causing problems for the baby, so every time I see or hear the baby, its like music to my ears!
I have such bad health related anxiety, that I was SO certain something might go wrong. Before the first ultrasound, I was certain it would either be ectopic or no heartbeat – I was wrong. Before we heard the heartbeat, I was certain they wouldn’t find it – they did. When they did the genetic testing to see if I was a carrier of something that could be passed on to the baby, I was SURE I would be – and I wasn’t. My anxiety stops me from fully enjoying anything, because of the fear of the unknown – but I am now trying to FULLY allow myself to enjoy and embrace this pregnancy, and that is an unbelievable and amazing feeling.

I am 16 weeks pregnant *my weeks turn over on Saturdays, the day I filmed this video*
Everything else is answered in the video!

      So happy for you and know exactly how you feel about being in shock and having health related anxiety. I went through the same thing when I was pregnant with my son (who is 100% healthy!). Just take it one day, one week at a time. I made a rule that I would only check my pregnancy app once a week to check the update on how much they had grown/developed and that helped as well because those forums are terrible for anxiety!

    • Arielle D. says:

      Bonus kitty cameo at 12:01 😃

    • Tiiti says:

      Congratulations. I am so happy for you❤️

    • Meghan Wood says:

      I’m so happy for you! I know the feeling of being told I wouldn’t have children with out the help of medicine. I too became okay with not having a baby so I made some life changes and then met someone who I truly love. Both my boys are miracles. They were both conceived with out any type of fertility medicine and they were both healthy pregnancies. I’m so over the moon for you to finally have your miracle❤

    • Maddie a says:

      your happiness was definitely clear! your shock portrayed just how happy you are and how much you wanted this pregnancy. congrats to parents and rawbabykristi ♥️

  2. Katie Hart says:

    I can’t imagine going through cluster headaches let alone, not being able to medicate them. You are a strong and amazing woman!!

    • m kelle says:

      @Rchl Swtzr as much as I’d be on board with this recommendation normally, I can say I definitely don’t recommend it for a pregnant woman

    • Lindsey Quinn says:

      Rchl Swtzr as someone with chronic pain (brain condition) not only does it not help, it makes it worse. I wouldn’t be surprised if she’s already tried it.

    • Nathalie Green says:

      @m kelle My NP during my pregnancy said the issue with cannabis consumption is that smoke replaces oxygen, not anything in the cannabis itself. For legal reasons it’s not a great idea in more places but you will not harm your baby with consuming cannabis not smoking it.

    • Rchl Swtzr says:

      It completely got rid of my migraines and you don’t have to smoke it.

    • Over It says:

      @m kelle, random comment, you’re so beautiful!! You look like a doll!!

  3. Naya Ruth says:

    After almost a year of trying to be pregnant (IVF), one day my cat started lying on my stomach and sort of hugging my tummy. My cat doesn’t do that. I asked my cat “are you an older brother now?”.. When I went to see my Doctor to check if I was pregnant, yes! My little boy is 8 mos old now. Congratulations Kristi ❤️

  4. missdemicarla says:

    The whole time I was thinking “this is exactly what it would feel like to win the lottery.. the baby lottery!” 😍🥰💕

  5. Jessica Davis says:

    Currently struggling with the depression after finding out we finally conceived. I have felt guilty that I’m not as excited since it took 10 years to get pregnant. It’s like I’m numb to any emotion. So glad you talked about this!

    • D. M. K. says:

      Lots of love for You ❤️

    • Tiffany S says:

      Like Kristi describes with normal vs common….. this is common for many women and you are not alone! Please speak to your doctor about it and people in your life you feel safe speaking to about it. Hormones are a wild ride and you can do this!
      Congratulations!!!!!🎊🎉

    • Destiny Spears says:

      congrats and I wish you the best and I am sending you positive happy healthy vibes! sorry if that sounds too hippy dippy btw lol

  6. Tiffany Sollog says:

    You announced your “one in a million chance baby” right when you hit a million subscribers! It was meant to be.
    I’m super happy for you both!

  7. Alyx Le says:

    The comment about “bummed you won’t do makeup” reminded me about when I was pregnant, and people acting differently toward me because I would no longer be x to them. A lot will change but mostly be the same. Congrats on your Rad Baby Kristmas Miracle! You will be excellent parents

  8. Blangblang says:

    I’m not prone to being anxious but when I first brought my daughter home I put my finger under her nose to check her breathing every 15 mins. And so We kept her bassinet in our room for 6 months. Then moved her into her nursery. Who knows. You might “nest” and make a full nursery that the little one won’t even be in for a while. Everyone is different and you being so open to everything is the perfect mindset to have. Congrats again!!!!

    • Krista Sharpe says:

      Same…. Baby is over one and we still haven’t moved her out of our room! 😂

    • Ashley Magenot says:

      @Krista Sharpe Hahaha, girl same!! My son is 14 months old and he still sleeps with us!! I love it though 💙 we snuggle all night.

  9. Kristine Olver says:

    When your baby 1st starts to move it just feels like butterflies in your tummy… I cannot wait for you to experience that it isn’t the most amazing thing in the world to feel your baby Moving inside of you.

  10. Whitney Fugleberg says:

    I can’t get over this, I have never been so excited for someone’s pregnancy, even my own! I just am so happy for you both, and can’t wait to watch your journey!!!

  11. ghosttara says:

    I never wanted kids and mostly can‘t relate to that strong wish to have them, but I can see how happy and glowing you are! So I am happy for you and wish you only best! Congratulations! 🥳

    • Queenie77Stitch says:

      Same! I was just so happy for her cried so much!

    • wave leopard says:

      I feel so happy for her!! But cannot relate at all to that notion of only being happy if having kids….🤯 Haha. To each her own ❤️❤️❤️

    • Morgan Miller says:

      I kinda thought I was the only one that had a strong feeling for no kids

    • Queenie77Stitch says:

      @Morgan Miller Morgan I’m child free by choice lots of women are. You aren’t alone

    • Over It says:

      I’m surprised how many women are saying they don’t want children. That’s cool to see. I’m a mom, but I have friends that feel like they can’t tell people they have no desire to be a mom, or when they do people insist they will change their minds, so they don’t bother talking about it. Anyway, I just like to see how many women give zero shits about being open on not wanting kids. I’ve always found it weird that society expects women to want to reproduce.

  12. Rainb0wSheep says:

    “New house, new baby” is what my parents tell me when it took over 4 years for them to get pregnant with me, and then they bought a house and oops here I am. 👋

  13. Sarah Busschau says:

    I have a PCOS miracle son as well. I was devastated “knowing” I’d never be a mom. So happy for you! ❤️

    • EchoSappho says:

      Congratulations! Same happened to my friend, also PCOS and also fertility treatment that didn’t work (such heavy and frequent miscarriages she was anemic). Got pregnant out of the blue after they stopped the treatment while planning their wedding. Now a happy mom of a healthy son, who was also present at the wedding in the shape of a big baby bump on the bride 😀

  14. Maddie Schroeder says:

    I just got chills when you talked about your baby’s conception 😭 have you ever heard of the law of attraction? That was one of the most amazing manifestation stories I have ever heard.

  15. Ashley Thornton says:

    Kristi: I don’t ovulate
    Ovaries: You’re not my real dad!!!

  16. Nadia Daley-Sterling says:

    if ur baby is a girl …shes actually going to look the best at prom

  17. Lindsey Souza says:

    We women need to
    Vote ! I’m blessed I live in a fertility state where they require insurance to pay for fertility treatment !!!

  18. Catarina Simões says:

    The belly shot and the fact you said ‘we’ instead of ‘I’ made me so emotional. I’ve been following you for a while and this was such an amazing news and I couldn’t be happier of the 3 of you! You’re going to be amazing parents and that baby is going to be the luckiest baby in the world!

  19. Lauren Overstreet says:

    This is so precious. And the fact that THAT LITTLE LOVER BOY MAD-EYE (such a heart breaker) is in this whole video is SUCH a precious memory for us and you guys. I just love it so much 😭😭😭😭😭 so excited to see more and hope for O N L Y the best.

  20. Saga Efraimsson says:

    World: Wow, so nothing good is going to happen in 2020 at all?
    RawBabyKristi: Hold my bottle.
