A woman has told how she found out she was pregnant after a seven year battle, the day before her husband's funeral.

Kristy and Royce Kirchner from Queensland set up a YouTube channel "Conceive A Baby" to track their progress.

They had been saving for three years to afford the IVF they needed to make their dream come true.

But 35 year old Royce died when his car flipped over and hit a tree - just ten minutes from their home.

Kristy has used YouTube, Facebook and social media to track the ups and downs of the couple's battle - including funny and bittersweet moments.

She broke the news that her husband had been killed - just after announcing that she was pregnant to her followers.

What has followed has been a series of, at times, hard to watch videos tracking her grief as she tries to come to terms with what has happened.

Kristy sobbed: "For ten years I just had the man of my dreams. It should be illegal - you shouldn't be able to take that away from someone.

"I didn't know how painful it would be to lose him.

"I've got so much love and support - yet all the love and support in the world just can't bring him back.

"It's getting harder. I have noticed myself slipping from shock into heavy grief. The feelings are overwhelming, the pain is unbearable, and I feel so much for little Pacey who is so tiny and shouldn't have to bear the brunt of such a horrible start to life."

You can watch one of her most recent videos below and follow the full story here.

Just a warning that you might find it upsetting...
