Re: TTC while Breastfeeding. February

Still pretty Blah about the whole thing. I always start off optimistic but after a week and no AF Idk how to feel. I mean, I know I have an entire week left before I know whether the Prog worked but still. This really sucks. I dont know what to even try next...

Re: TTC while Breastfeeding. February

Okay I'm new to this board. My ds will be 8 months on the 16th. He still nurses quite a bit. And probably 3-4 times between 1130pm-6 am. I last month thought I had AF return but it was only three days. 8,9,10 some faint spots on the 11th but the 11th I also has excruciating pain in my left ovary area. It was hoooorid. Never got it checked out. But anyway. My calendar. Says I should have ovulated on the 22. We dtd anyway.. but never had one sign of ovulation. I always can tell. By the cervical mucous. Well I had slight pink blood in my cm on the 3rd or so. I thought it would have been implantation or something. I took a pregtest 5x all negative. I should have gotten a cycle on the 5th but I still have nothing. Why didn't I ovulate? Why didn't I get another flow? Do I have to quit bf in order to ovulate again or draw back more from it? Thanks. I'm mew to all your abbreviations. TIA.

Hi! My first PPAF was super duper light. Only lasted 2-3 days. I didn't ovulate again until 58 days later. It can take some time to regulate again.

Fun!

So tonight I am going to start night weaning. I was really on the fence about it but DS decided it for me last night. I barely slept and all! Something has to give. I'm mostly doing it for my own sanity but if it jumpstarts the return of my cycle that'll be an extra plus.

We must be twins. I just died last night nursing ds2. He wants to be held and nursed all night. I ended up sleeping in the recliner with him. But it didn't help at all. Any time I moved he wanted a nipple in his mouth. How old is your lo?

Hope you are cleared for money and baby soon! I'm finishing up our taxes tomorrow. They're pretty straightforward so hopefully we'll have our money pretty quickly.

It's hard to tell if you are ovulating without doing ovulation predictor kits (opk) or taking your temp and charting. Watching your cm is helpful but hard to pin point ovulation just with that.

Breastfeeding messes with each woman differently. I would start out by taking your temp and charting or/and using opk to see if you are actually ovulating and when. Not every woman ovulated on cycle day (cd) 14. It may be way earlier or way later.

Sorry! It's a frustrating process for sure.

He just turned one year. So I'm doing the Jay Gordon method and DS has woken up once. I went in prepared to have to comfort him for a long time but he actually fell back to sleep after only crying for like 5 minutes! I couldn't believe it. We'll see how I hold up in the middle of the night when I'm half asleep. I'll update on how things go.
