TikToker Colette Peri (@colette.peri) is a stop-motion artist and newly expectant parent who often shares moments from her daily life and work. Recently, Peri posted a video montage featuring a series of negative pregnancy tests followed by a positive one, and people all over TikTok are bursting with excitement over the good news.
After counting to three, they look down at the test. Their expressions go from hopeful to slightly disappointed as they discover that the test has come back negative. They shrug and give each other a look as if to say, “Back to the drawing board.”
The clip then cuts to another shot of Peri and her husband in front of the bathroom mirror. Her husband has his arms wrapped around her while they wait for the results. Peri picks up the test and reads “not pregnant” aloud before she and her husband let out a quiet sigh of frustration.
In the following footage, Peri goes through several more negative pregnancy tests and grows more discouraged with each one. Until one day, she picks up a test to find that it came back positive, much to her and her husband’s delight and surprise.
The video closes with the happy couple sharing the good news with their overjoyed parents.
Peri’s video had viewers choking up all over TikTok, and many took to the comments to share their support and congratulations.
“I don’t see 7 clips of negatives. I see 7 months of trying. Congratulations,” said one supportive user.
“I’m too tired for this right now. I’m crying so hard I can’t see,” mentioned one TikToker.
“Bawling, so happy for you guys and don’t even know you. You seem like the nicest parents-to-be,” one viewer complimented.
If the family’s reactions are any indication, this baby will be surrounded by a lot of love.
