Couple Has Hysterical Photo Shoot With Box Of Embryos Before Wife Gets Pregnant With Triplets

Samantha and Mickey Clark knew they would have problems getting pregnant before they even got married.

Samantha was diagnosed with PCOS and endometriosis, in addition to a few other health problems.

Instead of having a huge, expensive wedding, the couple saved their money to start pursuing their dreams of having a family.

They looked into foster care, adoption, and infertility treatments.

They made the decision to go with IVF treatment, and they got some embryos cryopreserved at a clinic.

When they moved, they took the metal tank of embryos with them — inside a big cardboard box.

Samantha explained to ScaryMommy how they got their idea for the photo shoot:

We were driving to pick them up, and we started talking about how we should take photos with the embryos.

We were laughing so hard, we were crying. So when we picked them up, we just said, ‘OK let’s do it!’

It’s just one of those things where you think… ‘We may never get a chance to do this again.’

These embryos really were and are our kids. They were just as alive to us as if they’d already been born.

They went to a playground, picked out a puppy, taught the embryos to play baseball, and did a number of other activities.

And don’t worry — they asked their embryologist about doing the photo shoot before going through with it!

The embryos were not only safe, but perfectly healthy — and when they were implanted, Samantha got pregnant with triplets!

In August 2017, Shepherd Thomas, Eleni Lynn, and Ayla Sue were born.

The triplets are 6 months old now, and they’re absolutely adorable.

Samantha and Mickey keep followers updated on the triplets’ lives on their Facebook page, A Walk in the Clark.

Shepherd, Eleni, and Ayla are too young to understand the silly photo shoot they did when they were just embryos, but it will be a cool story for their parents to tell them when they get older.
