“Eight months of IVF treatment has definitely taken a toll on my body mentally and physically…it’s taken a lot to get me to the place of feeling really comfortable and happy with the changes.

Everyone always comments, like in every photo, I’m pregnant, and obviously, we wish that, but if it’s in God’s plan, then it is,”.

The mother of three continued, “Every day, Travis is like, ‘you’re perfect.’ If I make one complaint he’s like, ‘you’re perfect, you’re so fine…you’re so fine, you’ve never been better,’ and now I’m like, I’m so into it”.

"Having a partner who’s so supportive of me and always complimenting me no matter what, it’s just like helped me to really embrace the changes, and actually to the point where I love the changes now."
