YouTuber Pregnant after 15 Year Fertility Struggle!by Laura Driver
YouTube star RawBeautyKristi has shared an emotional video showing the moment she found out she was pregnant after a 15-year fight to conceive.
Introducing the vid she wrote: “You guys... today is a video I NEVER thought I would EVER make in my life. 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.”
Kristi, who has just passed a million subscribers to her beauty-themed channel, went on to explain that she and husband Zack had tried everything they could with fertility specialists before resigning themselves to the fact that it would not happen and stopping actively trying in 2015.
“We didn't want ‘trying to conceive’ to be the be-all-end-all for our lives,” she added.
The video itself features Kristi and Zack discussing their journey. In a segment filmed earlier this year the YouTuber says she has come to terms with the fact that they will never have children.
Just six days later she had a positive pregnancy test and her shock is plain to see. She explained: “I’ve filmed every pregnancy test for the last 12 years, just in case. In the vid Kristi can be seen crying with disbelief and repeating, “This cannot be real, no way!”

Right after this photo was taken, I proceeded to fall off my paddle board and lose these sunglasses 🕶😂🤷🏼♀️ ••• We are having the most amazing wonderful time EVER this week. It started off with our best friends at their amazing family cabin, and is ending with the most wonderful and amazing time in Leavenworth (which is where we are now) If you’ve never been, you MUST. It’s a Bavarian postcard wonderland
As she drives to the store to buy more pregnancy tests she continues, “You don’t understand, I don’t get pregnant, I don’t ovulate, I don’t have that, it doesn’t work.”
But this time it did and the couple couldn’t be happier!
