  1. I’ve followed you guys from when you first had lost Brynn, i did hurt for you guys and I also cried and had so much joy for you guys when you were blessed with baby Emma. You guys are so incredibly strong, and I hope you and your babies have the most fulfilled lives, you deserve the world Rachelle, you’re one strong mama💗

  2. Literally same as 'Life With Duchenne' . I can't even describe how emotional I feel rn as this journey has come full circle. I don't know you in person but I feel like I know you guys… I'm so happy for you!!!

    The first video I watched of you was the heartbreaking story after Brynn passed in the nursery. And now here we are in a nursery with a completely different outcome.

    You guys are the only family channel I watch all the time. Love you guys!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️

  3. Thank you for making this video. May God bless you. I am going for IVF at the end of this month. I found my fertility centres through www.ivfinmexico.com. I know this is the best option I have. My friends have gone there and have done their treatment from there. Prayers needed.

  4. My story is very Similar to you, I lost my ivf son at 22 weeks and 2 days 10/20/18 and it’s been horrible and I want to say you really do give me hope 🙏

  5. Hi Rachel I have been watching your video I am not sure if I miss the video you already said about did pgs testing or not?

  6. My cousin had a stillborn baby at 29 weeks and it was so heartbreaking. It was her first and a little girl as well. It's so hard seeing a loved one go through something like that and not be able to help 😢.

  7. I'm curious about the cost…does the $20,000 you already paid cover all the IVFs you want to have? I sure hope so!!!

  8. Thank you for this video!
    A friend of mine struggled with infertility for years. Unfortunately, she had 3 miscarriages. Then she had her daughter in her early fifties thanks to IVF Mexico

  9. Hi Rachelle, I’m a long time subscriber who struggles with PCOS. your journey has inspired me, and I’ve decided to document my story. If you have a chance I’d love you to check out my channel (: thank you for inspiring so many couples always 💜

  10. Darn!! Continued from m below::
    I just wanted to scream through the screen " It'll be fine this time Rachelle." Once you passed through that 6 mths mark in your pregnancy, I could feel more relief in you almost every day….it was wonderful to watch. Them Emna was born, and I swear I cried more when she was born than I did when my own two beautiful daughters were born. It was that day that I truly realized how incredibly lucky I had been with my two pregnancies, and I was so, so happy for all three of you. Emma is absolutely beautiful, and I know that even though you will have to do this all over again, (IVF), the twins of you have SO MUCH love to give, for you, it will be just another part of your incredible journey. This was a very heartfelt VLOG and I'm sure not an easy one to get through, but thank you both for the recap…..it reminds us all that each of us has a different story, and yours was not an easy one. I look forward to what's to come with your beautiful little family, and can't help but wonder if your next little one will also be a redhead!!! Love you both…and Emma too!! You're my favourite vloggers. 💕

  11. Hey Rachelle and Justin……wow….I've been with you guys since just before you found out you were expecting Brynn, and have cried both happy and sad tears right with you, but sitting now listening to the whole thing in one story is almost unbelievable. Pretty badly though ne you f my favourite vlogs was also the one when Rachelle picked out that beautiful burgundy dress to wear to your homecoming Justin. Just watching the anticipation on Rachelles face as you came off the ship, the huge hug, kiss, baby bump kiss…..man, I was sobbing. To have already followed your journey of loss, and then to see this wonderful moment of promise and hope was something I have never even before and I doubt I ever will….. that moment was so incredibly moving. I prayed every day as I looked forward to your vlogs that this would be a full term pregnancy for you two, although as it progressed, I could sense the fear in you Rachelle. I just wanted to scream through the screen away, I can't begin t imagine how scared you were. As

  12. I hate how so many doctors ignore young people who reach out. I was told my 7 doctors that I couldn’t have cancer due to my age.. well low and behold I did. Good for you for pushing for answers. We need to be advocates for ourselves and get the answers we know why need!

  13. Now I have to go back and rewatch Emma's Birth vlog and sob again 😭 you have helped me to not take motherhood for granted ..since I found you guys a little over a year ago ❤️

  14. We can so relate. I knew in my gut we’d have problems but I never thought key husband’s count would be 0. Testicular failure, Sertoli cell only syndrome. We know God has a reason… we get our foster care license next week. 🙂

  15. Congrats for having your cute baby 😍 I just heard from you several times that it was male fertility problem! But please don't mention it alot since it has negative effect on your husband self esteem! Because mobility problem is for before making embryos but when you fertilized a healthy good embryo and not being pregnant, then it doesn't refer to mobility or your husband! It could be problem in your uterus as well that you couldn't be pregnant!! So just don't think it was one side problem in the future! I can see the tears in your husband and I'm worry he loses his confidence! Anyway the journey is passed and God already blessed you! Thanks for his blessing in your life 🙏💑

  16. The first video i watched was you packing away Brynns nursery, i was pregnant at the time and i was a mess watching that video, i could not imagine the heartbreak you were going through. I was lucky enough to conceive my son (who turned 1 year old on the 17th november this year) naturally the first time we tried, so watching your journey made me truly appreciate my pregnancy even more than i could have imagined. Seeing you with Emma now (who is by the way so frickin adorable i absolutely LOVE her red hair 😍) is just so amazing, being a parent is truly the biggest blessing in the world and im so happy for you both ❤

  17. I was 19 when we first started and I finally fell pregnant when I was 21! I have PCOS and Endo!

  18. God says if you have a faith worth a mustard seed u can move a mountain 🏔 so if it’s a 1% of chance of getting pregnant naturally it can still work if u trust on the lord . God will make a way where there seems to be no way 😘 it feels so good to see u guys getting strong day by day
    Love u both and lots of hugs and kisses to Emma 🥰😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘

  19. Me and my husband have been trying to have a baby for little over 4 years now. Sometimes I lose hope and then I watch y’all videos and it makes me have hope again. This month I’m tracking everything and everything trying really hard and hoping they we get our little bundle of joy

  20. God bless you guys for showing other people not to give up. I personally never had that problem but I had a friend that did and they pushed through just like you guys and today out of 8 pregnancies they have 6 beautiful kids and out of those 6 there is a set of the most cutest twin boys. Thank you for showing that things do work out in the end. Love you guys and that beautiful little girl Emma 🙏🙏💖🇨🇦 God has really blessed you

  21. What a journey guys!!! With a beautiful ending so happy for you. 😍😍
    Let me ask you something you guys have to pay 3 times de 20k ? I'm asking this because my husband and I we going to start IVF and we are looking for advices about the financial part that I know is soooo dreining but at the end it's worth it.

  22. I still burst into tears (of joy) when I see Emma, knowing all that you've gone through. Such a beautiful blessing indeed.

  23. We lost our little one at 6 weeks pregnant in May 2016, after almost two years of infertility. Got pregnant again February 2018. Took a positive pregnancy test the day we were going to start fertility treatments. I am now sitting here, watching our little 4-week-old miracle swinging away in his swing. God is truly good!!

  24. I found your channel from the video of you packing up the nursery after you lost your daughter and i cried with you. I have watched you ever since and felt the pain with you as my husband and i have been trying for close to 2 years now but i can finally say I’m pregnant! I can’t believe it! I was able to hold back the tears until the moment i saw you hold Emma, i have seen the birth video and cried then but again when i saw her. I am so happy for you and have loved watching your journey. You have a beautiful family and a beautiful baby girl❤️

  25. Thank you for sharing your story! I'm so happy for the both of you and love seeing you two raise that beautiful little girl.

    I'm currently going into my 4th year of infertility. I went the route of a fertility clinic and gave up after a few months. They never actually could give me a straight answer as to why we were having issues. First it was a low ovarian reserve, and then it was I was just below the 'low' line so they had to say I was low. Next it was unexplained. I did two rounds of letroloze with it helping the first round but not getting pregnant and then the second round it did nothing. I was getting so mad. I think the worst of it all was how they always said "it's going to work, we don't see why it wont". They always got my hopes up and my world would come crashing down every month I got my period. I ended up never going back after that. I figured if it's meant to be, it will be. If they can't explain why it's not happening, then there is no reason for me to be paying to be here. So here's to hope ❤

  26. I've only just watched this vlog today and you can still see the desolation on your faces. I just wanted to give you both a big hug. I can't begin to tell you how happy I am that sweet Emma is here x

  27. My mom and dad suffered from infertility. My mom had cancer when she was 16 and it was ovarian. She lost one ovary and when she was 18 she lost half of the remaining one. They told my parents she had one year to get pregnant. That was in 1997. Three years later before my moms infertility appointment to decide if IVF was the best option my dad told her go just take a pregnancy test. She did and then there I was. The doctors put my mom at super high risk with her having Poly cystic ovarian syndrome. Most werent hopeful for me to make it to full term. I was born in January 2001. My mom and dad tried to have kids most of my life. When I was in the 6th grade my mom got a hysterectomy she was done. Done hurting. So i'm the only child and now i'm getting ready to turn 18 in a month and a half. And sadly I worry if i'll have the same issues with me having ovarian surgery to remove endometriosis I've had a DNC to remove it when it got extreamly bad. I have cysts really bad. My first surgery was when I was 14. Then 15. Then I was 17. Seeing these videos give me hope that even if I struggle with it in the future I won't be alone and I could talk to others who suffer.

  28. This Vlog has me in tears. Having had a Still born at 38 weeks in 30.30.2011 i was devastated. Due to our state hospital(South Africa) leaving me in labor for over 24 hours with a baba who did not work with i had torn and gotten to the point where they had to give me 57 stitches afterwards. Needless to say that i struggled to get pregnant after that and we immediately got medical aid after like his birth and months after trying on our own we knew something was wrong as we got pregnant with Aiden so fast Natural .we went to see a OB and they helped us to conceive our daughter who was born in 29.10.2012. i ended up electing to have a c section as the state never bothered to tell us what went wrong with Our boy so my OB did not want to take any chances and at 35 weeks i went into labor and had a emergency C section. now our bundle of joy is 6 years old and we want another and all of these fears are right back an eating at me. i want to so badly start vlogging just to help us through this so that we are just not so alone. Thanks for telling your story again.

  29. Its crazy how different we all are, you were trying for 3 years, starting at 20. I am 23 and in a new relationship and he is 25. I am still no where near ready for kids but I am just as passionate about being a mom in the future as you were before you had kids. I am so curious about my body and want to know so bad whether I am able to get pregnant or not. I should be able to, I've never had any sort of issue with my periods and I went off the pill 1 year ago and have ovulated every month since. I pray that when I am ready for kids I will not struggle with infertility. I love you both and thank you for sharing.

  30. Such an amazing sweet story you both have shared. So many extreme ups and downs and having to deal with such a great loss of a child is heartbreaking. But Emma is proof of the love God has for you, May his love shower your special family always. ❤️🙏🏻

  31. Rachelle, Justin, i am so happy that this journey brought little Emma. But I’m also sorry about the heartbreak along the way. You guys are such an inspiration. I love you guys so much💙

  32. I remember finding your channel when your “packing up the nursery” video went viral. You two broke my heart. Seeing how far you’ve all come since then, is so heartwarming. I’m so proud of you guys & so blessed to have been able to be with you both through every moment leading up to Emma. Remember that Brynn made you both first time parents & she lives on in Emma. You guys are so cute & I promise to continue supporting you both until I’m like 90 years old. Love you guys, you’re so inspirational. 💗💗💗

  33. Thank you for this video, I really needed to hear it. My husband and I have been trying for 3 years, tried IUI, I got breast lumps from the hormones, had a bilateral lumpectomy, and decided to stop trying fertility treatments, but still calculate the days. We still felt a void. This video started the discussion and today we reordered our fertalaid and we are going back to our fertility clinic the first of the year. Thank you for this video, here's to the next chapter in our infertility book. Praying for financial peace for the next time you decide to try again. Love you guys! ❤️

  34. Rachelle and Justin, thanks for sharing your journey with infertility and IVF leading up to the birth of baby Emma. You’re a beautiful family❤️❤️❤️

  35. Getting teary eyed when listening to you talk about having Emma…my husband and I had decided to try for a baby in March of 2016…after years of health problems, surgery for endometriosis, lyme disease treatment, and losing his dad to cancer in March this year we are finally expecting our first child (a baby girl!) in March 2019… its all coming full circle. I am just so excited to meet our little girl and finally have our family. Love you guys and am so overjoyed for you and the future ♡

  36. I wish I still had my extra college fund money. I had to use it for rent and bills. I have a genetic condition and will be doing IVF so my children don’t have to grow up with it. Maybe by the time my grandchildren are born infertility and IVF in general will be covered. One can hope…
