Mina Starsiak Hawk has been told that the only way for her to carry a second child is with a donor egg, the HGTV star revealed in a deeply personal Instagram post chronicling her struggles to get pregnant.

"Not only was this not expected ever, it definitely wasnt this soon in the process," Mina wrote Sunday to her more than 178,000 followers. "After sitting with it a bit, were doing the reasonable thing and getting a second opinion, although I dont have high hopes it will result in anything different. So thats where we are."

Mina, who renovates and flips houses with her mom Karen E. Laine on Good Bones, first opened up about her fertility difficulties in July, when she shared that she was wearing an Ava Women bracelet that "measures signals in your body to pinpoint your fertile days." At the time, fans expressed gratitude for her decision to speak out about an often taboo topic. It's for that very reason that Mina has continued to be so open about her family life.

"I've been sharing my fertility ride publicly because of the thousands of messages from women its helping ... but I never anticipated what I would do if it wasnt successful," the HGTV star added. "That option hadnt even entered my mind. I did get an update a bit ago, but needed some time to process with my husband."

Mina announced the birth of her first child, Jack Richard Hawk, with husband Steve Hawk back in August 2018. After receiving the recent news, she had Jack's name tattooed to her side, the context of which she finally disclosed in Sunday's post.

"Thats the tattoo: Jack's name," Mina wrote at the close of her Instagram caption. "Nothing uniquely life shattering, but it felt right."

Mina is long familiar with fighting against the odds, and in that spirit she has vowed that there is still "more to come" for her family.

"There is more to come. Im not sure what it is yet," she said at the end of her post. "But it doesnt feel over."
