Hello! I am have been away from these forums for awhile. I must say I have always loved MM and have got very busy with my kids and life. I been on OS awhile, and am not finding it very helpful lately. Many issues there. Besides, Mothering feels soo much more homey and in line with my attachment parenting instincts and worldview. I am a EBFing, baby-led-weaning, non-vaxing, cosleeping, babywearing, noncircing, nonviolent Ojibwe Buddhist mama. I hope this is an okay place to introduce myself (again). I was drawn by the title of this group cause I have been dreaming of a Xmas BFP myself. I have been doing ecological bf with my DS who turned 1 last month. Yet I am ready for another!
1st PPAF has not yet returned for me, but I have been charting my fertility (sorry, are you guys familiar with TCOYF? ) again for 2 months and getting lots of gear ups from my body, fertile CF, and twice I thought I O'd earlier and didn't. I am afraid to be hopeful, but have been doing OPK's for a few weeks and got what seem really positive tests a few days ago. My temp dived 2 days ago and I had O pains. Now it is technically above the coverline the last 2 days. Once again I am hopeful of O if it rises and stays high... if so I will only be 7 or 8 dpo on Christmas but I am of course planning to test (bit of a poas addict here) then. While not likely of accuracy so early, I have seen it happen! Forgive this book of an intro, and thanks for reading! I am excited to meet you all and wish you all BFP's!
