My name is Aislinn, and I've been married to my husband Keegan since August 2012. We currently live in Mississippi due to K's job, but we both call Missouri our home. We have two cats,
and we spoil them way too much.
September 2012, I was diagnosed with PCOS and insulin resistance after my period mysteriously disappeared after going off of birth control in April. We did months of Metformin and a low carb diet, which caused me to lose about 40 pounds. After a year of timed intercourse with Metformin, I convinced my OB to start me on Clomid. Cycle 1 was a bust, but Cycle 2 brought us our little Breadcrumb who I'm almost 20 weeks pregnant with. You can read about how we found out here.
We were one of the lucky couples who became pregnant right before moving onto more intense treatments. We met with our RE the day after I ovulated the egg who eventually became Breadcrumb. If that cycle had not worked out, we were going to move onto IUI with injectables.
Currently, we're trying to navigate pregnancy and the hope that we will become parents in August. It hit me recently that come August, I will not be pregnant anymore, and will have to live with my body that doesn't ovulate on its own again. I recently wrote a post asking if any ladies out there have navigated the waters of infertility after pregnancy, and if they went back on birth control. If you have any advise or suggestions, please let me know!
