Re: (o) TTC While Breastfeeding (o) October.

My little man is now 17 months, and still no AF. He is driving me crazy though. He nurses soooo much. I keep reminding myself he will eventually slow down, and also of how good it is for him But I am feeling some crampy stuff this month. Hoping my body is waking up!!!!!

Not really. I heard B Vitamins were the things to take to help with that, but I think DD is nursing so much that my ovaries are literally going into hibernation! However, I did read, that it's very normal for nursing mom's to have short LP's when cycles begin to return. It can take around 3 normal cycles for them to normal out! I bought pre-conception tea that is really tasty (I'm a tea hoarder!) but I'm not sure it's gonna do much since bf'ing is the reason for my "infertility".

I'm so right there with you! DD cut 4 teeth at the same time! I might have well cut my boobs off and taped them to her face! (That's a little intense!) I was even having some resentment because I was CONSTANTLY nursing her and I felt that I never ANY break to myself and I couldn't even walk out of the room without her!!! She didn't even want DH! She's calming down now, but still is pretty clingy.

I've had to remind myself lately why I'm doing this. I love the bonding with her, but sometimes I just wish I could have a break! This is gonna pass way too fast and I'll look back and wish I still have that little baby!!!

DD's new carseat was delivered today! She's still technically fits in her infant seat, but she is not liking to be in it. We bought a britax that has the no rethread harness...OMG..EASY!!!!!! I haven't installed it yet. I'll leave her in her infant seat for now!

I used it for a while. Start slow, it can make you sick. Also, it takes at least 30 days to enter your system.

Hmm, 3 normal cycles to regulate? I'm on regular cycle 5 :-( DH just agreed that we'll have to dtd every other day all cycle. Teeheehee.

Ok, maybe I will wait till Jan to start it. Too much holiday drama for me to whack out my emotions before then. :-)

I read that vitex can lower your supply. I've never took it, so I don't know! I've heard so many mixed stories about it, I'd rather just stay away.

Opposite! It's said to boost supply! Of course, depending on your hormone levels it can affect people differently. That being said....I'm not personally concerned about my supply since my child is over one.

And yes, husbands. Smh.

DH said the EXACT same thing today! So funny. So... It seems I'm on an 11 week cycle... What does that mean?! I've only had AF twice since giving birth. Could I still be ovulating in the middle around week 5-6? Or should I just keep waiting for everything to regulate more. This is sooo frustrating!! I love BFing DD but I want another baby soooo bad too!
