Pregnant while BF? symptoms? - UPDATE

I am thinking that I may be pregnant without the return of AF. Not even sure how far along I am but guessing 8 weeks??

DS has been on solids for 3 months now. I've been tracking CM but just lately... I admit it has been very hard to do this sometimes peeing in the middle of the night in a dim bathroom holding a baby after he has just woken me (so he won't wake DH crying if I leave him down for a moment)

I am EXTREMELY tired, have other symptoms. feel stretching in my belly skin & on the sides even though I have not grown as much- woudl this be happening if I was merely gaining weight?
getting a test today, finally. My first symptom was actually increased saliva, isn't that strange?

I know other mamas have gotten pg w/ AF - what were your signs - how did you know?
When did you start showing? At times it seems like i am showing but other times it seems like just bloating/flabby skin.

THX!!

Sore nipples! I thought i had thrush, but there was no redness. I took an old test that I had under the bathroom sink. My ex-husband had a vasectomy 4 days earlier. Surprise!

My period had returned but not consistantly when I got pregnant while BF. My first clue was constant peeing.

My first clue was decreased milk supply and fatigue. KUP after you test!

Re: Pregnant while BF? symptoms?

I had implantation bleeding... thought I was getting my first PPAF but decided to test when it didn't get heavy... good thing, because I didn't have many other symptoms!! Very tired, and milk reducing around 8 weeks. Bloating out of clothes soon after!

Re: Pregnant while BF? symptoms?

I had one PPAF and was still BF my 22 mos old when I got pg. The only reason I took a test was b/c nearly 50 days had passed and still no 2nd ppaf. I let it go that long thinking I was just off sched still and just kept waiting (normally a 35 day cycle anyway). The only symptom I had was some indigestion.

I never got my period back but ovulated once at 13 months, and that was all it took! For me, I just knew. No real symptoms, I just new.
