Mina Starsiak, the star of HGTV’s renovation show ‘Good Bones,’ recently posted about her current cycle of IVF
She revealed to her 167K Instagram followers that she and her husband, Stephen Hawk, are having difficulty conceiving their second child.
She has previously posted about acupuncture sessions (meant to boost her fertility) as well as fertility testing. Last week, she posted a photo of herself pregnant with her son Jack Richard, who is now 15 months old.
“I got this [picture] back around this time last year. This month is the kickoff of our IVF journey.”
“To those who give zero f’s, just skip all my stories. But I’ll keep posting for the hundreds of women who have messaged me, saying thank you and appreciating the openness of the process that so many people seem to go through [in] private.”
“I’m not sure how it’ll turn out, but we’re gonna give it a go!!! “Sorry [in] advance if I’m (extra) cray this next month #hormones.”
The comment section beneath her photo was flooded with fans lending their support, and women thanking her for her candour
Starsiak and her husband have labeled their journey as “Mission: Baby Making!” She previously shared photos relating to a hysterosalpingogram (HSG). This test is carried out to assess the health of a woman’s fallopian tubes and uterus. She described it as “ a super simple procedure where they put dye through my tubes to make sure they aren’t clogged and actually releasing eggs.”
She has also been open about checking Hawk’s sperm, her hormones, and taking Clomid, a drug that stimulates ovulation. She concluded her post with, “No stress. Just moving along, checking things off the list till it happens.”
Starsiak and Hawk have previously been successful conceiving naturally, as their little boy was born on August 9, 2018. She was also extremely open about her pregnancy, even sharing a video of her giving the good news to Richard.
After cooking him breakfast, she presenting him with a small box containing 2 positive pregnancy tests and a pair of baby slippers with her hubby breaking down in tears.
