Subbing. This will be my fourth year, I think. 2009s was a bit iffy, probably one of my less successful maps, but I also put less passion in it than in previous years, and it also had unusual results. I guess I will see what the next 3 months still brings from it, still!

Subscribing- this will be my third year. The first two were pretty successful!

Yes, and even when looking locally. We are near Mt. Rainier, so I checked lahar maps before deciding where to move last time. Earthquakes scare me to death, and after our "big" one in '01, I seriously considered moving away, until I found out that the only two places without earthquake risk in the US were Florida (no thanks- hurricanes!) and someplace else I'm not remembering. We are at a certain level above sea level that makes me feel safe about all but the very worst...
DD4 gets 1 1/2 mg 4-5 nights a week (depending on the week!) I like to give her a break from it after a few days so she doesn't get too dependent on it.
This is a nightmare of mine- my ex takes minimal interest in our kids, and my husband is a dad to my kids as well as to our kids together (their sisters that they are close to.) Legally, we are just kind-of stuck.
I was just coming on to this board to ask the same thing. I feel like my 26 month old nurses as much as she did when she was 6 months old! My last self-weaned at 23 months, so this is new to me.
Yes, nursing can cause low progesterone. I am generally super fertile, however I started charting when nursing DD4 and noticed I had a short luteal phase (often associated with low progesterone). I took B6 and managed to lengthen it a couple of days. First month of TTC, I got a positive pregnancy test on the day my period was due- and then a heavy period started the next day. Second month of TTC, I called a doctor the day I had a faint positive test and demanded a...

It didn't empty it as completely as nursing, and I was REALLY glad to get back, just to nurse (which DD did the second I walked in the...
