PCOS, Infertility, Trigger Shots, IUI, and then... a baby boy!
"I followed Modern Burlap before my husband and I became pregnant with our first child. I was 30 and wondering why we hadn’t conceived after 2 years of trying and began to worry that we had waited too long. I bought a blanket in hopes I would soon be pregnant and swaddling a baby in the near future. It didn’t work out as I had hoped. My husband and I found out I have polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and we had less than 1% chance of conceiving naturally; all female factor. I already had a hypothyroid and insulin resistance. We tried 5 months of a metformin, clomid and femara combo with no ovulation. We then met our awesome fertility endocrinologist Dr. Groll! He increased my metformin and synthroid and I tried acupuncture when I finally produced one follicle after having a cyst that almost ended that cycle. We decided to proceed with the trigger injection and IUI. It was a success and we now have our son Harry who has been swaddled and wrapped in so many Modern Burlap blankets in his life. Along our infertility journey, we had so many people praying for us and are praying for us again as we try grow our family more!
