To help others in the same situation, the couple from Idaho created “infertility announcements” on their blog, parodying the the pregnancy posts seen on Facebook and Instagram, according to Us Weekly. “Humor has always been one of our coping mechanisms,” Spencer said.

According to Good Morning Idaho the Blakes, both 30, were diagnosed with “unexplained infertility” in 2011 after undergoing numerous tests and procedures. “The sorrow of infertility was absolutely crushing,” Whitney told reporters. “It used to be such a consuming part of my life….Between the daily doctors’ appointments, kits, pills, drugs and tests…between other people’s baby showers and pregnancy announcements…it’s kind of hard to forget, even when you’re trying not to dwell.”

Despite, fertility challenges the couple have two adopted children and in an interview Spencer told reporters, “We wouldn’t change that for the world.”
