TTC while breast feeding!
So my LO just turned 1 last sat and he nurses 24/7. He still dose not STTN :( but I'm so happy cuz I just got my period, I guess the red raspberry tea really did work!!! My question is now what do I do?? Do I start testing with OPK's and if so when? Or should I wait till I get another period?? What advice/suggestions would you give me?? My hubs really wants a dec baby!! TIA

Join us over at the TTC while Bfing thread! Lucky you for getting your cycle back. DS is 13 months and still no AF!

Re: TTC while breast feeding!
I actually just started night weaning using the jay gordon method and it was going really well but DS is teething really bad so that went out the window. Your cycles might be wonky for a few months so don't be surprised if they aren't 28 days exactly. Heres a link to the thread

Re: TTC while breast feeding!
I was looking at that same method too!! We tried it for o e night and it went horrible caved in n just gave him the boobie! I don't think it will work at the moment cuz he is going through a wonder week I might try it later on. Do you test for ovulation??

Re: TTC while breast feeding!
Yeah I just went into it and said if he goes to sleep fairly easily I'll keep doing it but if he cries for a long time I'll come back to it in a couple weeks. He always fell asleep within 5 minutes soI definitely think he's ready. I so hope his molars hurry up and come through..he is so miserable. I have some opk that I take randomly, especially if I see any EWCM but right now it's just like "hmm, maybe I'll take on for the fun of it". I don't temp b/c I rarely get 4 solid hours of sleep before morning.

Re: TTC while breast feeding!
Oh no mine will cry all night long and I don't think my DH would be happy about it. I bought some OPK's from a coop and I used them here and there for a while but really didn't pay much attention. For what I read I guess I have to do it around the same time and don't drink any water couple of hrs before its just too hard cuz ill forget! How do you test??

Re: TTC while breast feeding!
Oh and about the temp I have never done that do I buy a special thermometer forgive my ignorance lol and what temp am I looking for?? Would I test in morning or night??

Re: TTC while breast feeding!
I never worry about testing at a certain time. I just do it when I get a chance. As for temping you get a basal thermometer which most places like walmart have in the area with pregnancy tests and OPKs. Then you take your temp at the same time first thing in the morning before you get out of bed. There are apps and stuff online where you can keep track. A great book that explains the basics of it is Taking Charge of Your Fertility.
