A woman who uploaded a video to Facebook after finally becoming pregnant through IVF has seen her message of hope viewed more than THREE MILLION times.
Jade Hartley, 25, uploaded the film – called When Two Become Three – to the social networking site as a way of letting her friends and family know the happy news.
The video – set to the Miley Cyrus song The Climb – documents the end to Jade and her partner Brett Crisp’s, 32, four year struggle to conceive.
But the video went viral and has now been viewed by more than three million people.
Jade, who originally uploaded the video from her phone while on a day out, said: “I cannot believe the reaction it has had.
“I never expected this. You don’t realise how many people will see it when you upload it. I’ve had hundreds of messages of support from all over the world.
“I’ve had people saying they are in Hull now going through treatment and that it’s reassured them they are in the right clinic.
“I’ve had one woman who has offered to donate her eggs to me, but that’s not the reason I did it.”
After three years trying to conceive naturally Jade was told she had blocked fallopian tubes and could get pregnant without IVF treatment.
The couple, from Hornsea, East Yorks., began their treatment at the Hull IVF unit, East Yorks., in April.
After a failed first attempt the couple went through a second cycle of IVF, which has proved to be successful.
Their video alsoshows the vast amount of drugs that Jade had to take and the bruises she suffered as a result of the regular injections she had to take during the treatment.
At the end of the treatment Jade still had an agonising two week wait before she could take a pregnancy test.
After finding out she was two to three weeks pregnant she spread the news to her family as well as splashing out on new baby clothes.
The final clip in the video shows an ultrasound scan, revealing the baby is due on April 9.
Jade said: “I know there are people out there going through this and thinking they are doomed and I just wanted to say I know how it feels and to never give up hope.”
“I want people going through it now to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
“It’s usually not something people talk about.”
“When you go in the clinic you are all there for the same thing but no one talks to anyone else, it’s like a morgue.”
“It just means everything to us but the video doesn’t show the half of what we went through.
“I also wanted to say a massive thank you to Hull clinic because they were amazing people.”
The couple have decided they will wait until the baby is born before finding out whether they are having a little boy or girl.
