TTC & BFing

Anyone else in the same boat? MY DD is 10 months and we've been TTC for 3 months now with no luck. Even though AF's been back for 5 months now, I think I'm having anovulatory cycles.

I'm going to my midwife soon to have some blood word done to see if the stress to TTC and wanting to be preggo again SOOO badly is even worth it right now.

DH and I tried for about 9 months to conceive DS, and I was nursing DD, AF had been back for 8 months. The month I stopped BF'ing we conceived....I think that had everything to do with it.

Re: TTC & BFing

that breaks my heart b/c I've been reading "Adventures in Tandem Nursing" and am excited to continue BFing DD, and eventually tandem nurse her and # 2! We're only 3 months in, so we'll just keep trying! Thanks!

Re: TTC & BFing

I got pregnant with DD while nursing DS. He was 2 yrs. and 1 mo. when I got pregnant with her and AF had been back for almost a year. He weaned at 2 yrs. 4 months of age. It IS possible to get pregnant while breastfeeding. You might try ovulation predictors, charting or temping if you want to "know" your body. Sometimes you may ovulate early or really late, you just may not know it. The Dollar Tree sells ovulation sticks for $1 each. They work, it might be worth your investing in to help things along in your favor. Good luck!

We did all of the above, and still for my fertility we weaned and that did the trick. My mom, however, ended up getting pregnant with my sister while nursing me, so it is possible for some people! Good luck!
