Re: (o) TTC While Breastfeeding (o) November/December

Cd 43 and nothing. I thought for sure I'd have a + OPK today because I have EWCM, ovary pains and a awesome cervix.....but NOPE.
I keep trying to plan my next birth. I'm not sure if I want a hospital birth (I love my midwife) or a home birth in the comfort of my own home.
I've always had some bleeding issues post birth, but I think it's because 1)Pitocin 2)not letting my placenta some out on it's own! They've always rushed it!

I've read a lot on post partum bleeding and things to help stop bleeding...ect.

I'm just ready for that journey!

We can swap families if you want!

Oh man. I really don't want a long cycle. I'm sorry you're still waiting to o.

I think I want another birth center birth. Its at the midwives house, so I guess it's a home birth except I don't have to clean up

Although I'm kinda scared to feel the pain again.... but oh a cute baby..... Come on ovaries. Work your magic!

Re: (o) TTC While Breastfeeding (o) November/December

We have a free standing birth center here that is just a huge lot with 2 house. The first house is the "office" and the back house is the birth center! It's comfy 2 bedroom cottage style house with a very cool, kid friendly living room that is equiped for kids to entertain themselves! They also come with free doulas during labor!
However, they've gotten into some trouble and that makes me worry. My girlfriend is a L&D nurse and she had a patient come in that was transfer from that birth center, and apparently the mom should have been brought in WAY earlier and the baby is now just basically a body that's alive.
I was seen there with my 3rd and 4th pregnancy. #3 was m/c, but #4 was breech until 30-something weeks, and the midwife I saw just kept talking about scheduling my c/s. No talk about turning him or anything. I left and went back to my old OB and literally a few days later, my baby turned, then a few days after that my water broke!
My girlfriend is always saying that I'm stupid for wanting a home birth, or even a birth center birth, but she works at a hospital, so of course she sees the "bad" stories!

I don't know.

Can I jump back in with you gals? I'm a grad from last year. Ds2 is now 8 months old. Tech we are tta but its just condoms and we aren't very good about it. We'd be fine getting pregnant. So I guess that puts us in the ntnp group.

I got my pp af back at 3 months even with ebf. Darn it! I wanted to temp to see when I'm o'ing but we co sleep and nurse allllll night long so I don't get a good block of sleep time in. So I'm doing opks for my upcoming cycle. Af is due today so we'll see if she shows.

I'm thinking 3 kids are going to be it for us so I'd love a girl this time. But I love my boys!

Re: (o) TTC While Breastfeeding (o) November/December

Welcome Abby. I had 2 girls, then a boy! It's possible! Then I had another girl! LOL. I'm hoping for another boy next time!
Are your cycles regular?

CD46 and Nada! My nursling has the flu or something. She started puking last night and now has diarrhea! I've only nursed 2x today, but suprisingly my boobs are not full! She's sleeping now which is nice! Now, if my other 3 would chill so I could rest, that would be AWESOME. I working on 3hrs of sleep!!!

My cycles are like clock work. Which I'm very thankful for. After ds2 though they are only 26 days. That's why I'm curious when I'm o'ing now. So it should be an interesting month!

Sorry your lo is sick. I hate sick kids. So helpless.

Hey Nickel! I remember you too. Funny we're back in this thing again together!

I'm getting pretty desperate for ds2 to sleep more than 3 hours at night. If he's not sleeping ON me he's crying his eyes out. I have to start figuring out a plan. We don't really do CIO but we need something v
