Having watched many of my dear friends struggle with infertility, this video struck home with me. It is such an emotional roller coaster trying to get pregnant, and I loved watching this couples’ journey unfold.
Utah residents Ashley and Tyson Gardner tried unsuccessfully for years to get pregnant.
Finally, the Utah couple learned in July that their first in-vitro fertilization attempt was successful. But the real surprise came during the ultrasound, when they learned she was pregnant with quadruplets.
Luckily, a friend was in the room to capture the look on Gardner’s face in a picture that is delighting parents, moms-to-be and just about anyone else who has a heart. A BabyCenter article on the picture was shared 2,600 times from its Facebook page, drawing nearly 15,000 likes. In the past week, the Gardners’ Facebook page, where they share news about their pregnancy, grew by nearly 16,000 likes to 24,300. See below for a collage from that page.
