Peta got extremely candid about the process, sharing a video of her giving herself two different injections, explaining that she wants to be as “transparent as possible.”

In the video, Peta shared that even though she is used to needles, she admits to procrastinating when she saw the size of the IVF needle. On top of that, she had to fill and mix the second syringe entirely by herself.

“Guys, I know there’s no promises, I know that this is a risk, a gamble, we don’t know what’s going to happen. But, this is the most excited I’ve been in a very long time,” Peta said, adding, “Let’s make a baby!”

Peta’s IVF journey comes just days after she revealed she suffered three miscarriages over the past two years — one of which occurred while Maks was in Ukraine in October.

She recounted the devastating experience to People , explaining she had returned home from visiting Ukraine, where she contracted COVID. Just days after testing positive, she collapsed on her son’s bedroom floor and had to be rushed to the hospital.

There she learned she was experiencing a miscarriage, even though she didn’t even know she had been pregnant.

“I felt like I was dying, but then I obviously knew what had happened. It was just all too much for my body, and I couldn’t do it. I couldn’t believe that this was happening to me,” Peta shared.

Maks added that their first pregnancy loss the year prior was the lowest point in their relationship, sharing that it came as a surprise because he never knew “two healthy, athletic people could be in a predicament like this.”

“With the trauma, I took a very long time to get over it,” Peta said of her first miscarriage. “It was months and months of crying most nights in bed by myself, crying in the shower, it was a lot of denial.”
