Im thinking about setting up the pack and play in my room and giving that a go to see if that works.

My nipples are SO sore! I ripped my boob out of ds2 mouth in the middle of the night because he latched on and was nursing and it hurt like craaaaaazy. It was a sleep ripping though, I woke up as I did it, trying to figure out why I was in pain.

Well last night went well too. He usually ends up falling asleep on my chest and then after a few minutes I can roll him off onto the bed. Honestly he has the hardest time when he's in bed with me b/c I guess he smells or senses me. I almost wish I could try transfering him to a toddler bed but we are living with the inlaws right now so co-sleeping it is.
Oh, and my cycles haven't returned but it seems like once or twice a month I will have a few days where my nipples kill me too! I always get my hopes up but now that it keeps happening I don't know what to think.

Re: TTC while Breastfeeding. February

omg i just have to vent because my anxiety is out of control.

my bff is pregnant. this is a pregnancy that was NEVER supposed to happen. She was told it would NOT happen for her. Low and behold she ends up pregnant without intervention so now time for the shower. her sister is not a planner. the minute i found out about this baby i have been planning this shower. now her sister is riding my coattails. That's fine. NOW we are doing light snacks provided by other people and gourmet cupcakes. the sister is now texting me that she thinks that it's too expensive ($33 each for 48 cupcakes) and maybe we could just get the mom to be 1 gourmet cupcake and then get the rest from Sams. This is also the girl that thought everyone didn't need an individual invite. You know send one to the father to be's mom and then she could just tell all the sisters and sisters in laws.

Im having serious anxiety about this!!!!

eta: she thinks that now that friend has had one baby she wil have 10 and i guess that's why we shouldn't do it up proper?!

Abby-I think that you should do it all out. Even if she goes on to have 10 kids, doesn't mean she shouldn't have a good shower! Each baby should be celebrated!

I bought some $Tree OPK's and they are so negative I think they have evaps.
What does that mean? My ovaries are completely shut down?

Are you temping also? Can you link your chart? When I use opks they can be stark white and the next day almost positive. So I don't think they've shut down. Maybe you've o'ed already and are getting ready to start af?

Who knows. I was thinking AF, but I'm pretty sure I haven't O'd.
I'm cramping like crazy, but I've been cramping with O, and not having cramps until AF was well started!
It's crazy!!!

Bad mental health day today. :-( I'm just feeling anxiety over everything. I cleaned house which helps. But the lack of sleep at night is starting to get to me.

Af is due Sunday and I'm pretty sure she's coming. Just basing on my anxiety and internal monitors. :*(

Re: TTC while Breastfeeding. February

I think I might actually be going to O.
Crazy CM, and when I checked my cervix is was SOOOOOO soft and open!
I took an OPK, and waiting for it to dry to see the results!
