Nursing Mamas TTC February - Page 5
I got a BFP today!!!! I cannot believe it! This was our first cycle ttc! I was sure it would take a long time with the short LP's and my hormone issues. We are just so thankful though that we are able to grow our little family already!! I did another $store one, got quite the faint line, and then used the target one and got the blue + sign. Still can't believe it! I want to keep testing to make sure it's not a fluke and the baby keeps growing! It was surrealistic calling the MW for the prenatal appt. I'm still worried about m/c so we probably won't tell IRL for a couple more weeks at least.
Congratulations! I'm glad it was a short journey :)
For everyone, I'm just starting to track my cycles after my first ppaf and I'm wondering if anyone has noticed that their cm has changed post partum while still nursing?
Congrats on the BFPs this month and the PPAFs!
I had a couple days of light spotting about 2 weeks ago which may have been ovulatory spotting, and than 3 days ago my first PPAF arrived in earnest, so I guess I'm now waiting to O. I have to admit, I'm still not quite 100% sure we are ready to TTC as DD (almost 20 months) has been really challenging over the last couple weeks, but as it took us over a year with DD, I think we'll take the plunge.
Hi Everyone!! I just found this thread today and I am so happy! My DS is 6 months on Saturday and DH and I want to try for another... Not thinking, I was all excited to start trying but I haven't had a cycle yet as I am nursing, boooo, I am so sad as we really want to try for another. Any tips on getting my first cycle? Here is our routine...
We co-sleep so DS feeds a couple times in the night, not a lot just enough to get him back to sleep. I BF in the mornings before work and pump a couple times during the day and nurse in the evenings. He does have to get some formula as well as I am unable to provide enough milk (Breast Reduction 10 years ago). I have been trying cereal a little and a few times a week he does eat it but other times he's not interested. I am wondering if anyone has any tips for us? I am trying to "get" all the acronyms but some I don't understand quite yet so be gentle with me, lol...
Hi Everyone! I am on CD 15 here. I am a little confused. I don't temp yet and have just been using the ovulation calendar ap on my iphone to track my cycle. According the the ff ap I should have ovulated on 2/14. But according to the babycenter ovulation calendar it says I should ovulate on 2/18. I have been trying to pay attention to my CM and it was a little stretchy yesterday and the day before, but no major EWCM. We have been DTD every other day and I am supposed to get my AF again on 3/1. So, I might be in 2WW or in waiting to O. If I don't get prego this month I will try to start temping, but DD is back to nursing a couple times a night so I am not sure how accurate that will be. It was so nice the two months that she slept through the night...now we are back to square one and I am oh so tired!
haven't been here in a while. I needed a mental and physical break from TTC after my miscarriage in Deecmber. But I just finished my 2nd period since the M/C and feel like Im ready to start trying again. So pls move me to the waiting to O!
Geez Im scared sh.....s that it will take another 9 months to conceive and/or that I will ,miscarry again. Im pushing 39 so I feel my clock is SUPER LOUDDDDDDD!!!!!!
Congrats to all the BFP's and sorry to any ladies who have had disappointments. (I have not read the whole thread - short on time!)
I waited until Valentine's day like I promised, still no period, and a BFN. I had 2 possible ovulation dates, the 29th and the 5th. I thought if I'd caught luck either time, it would have showed positive by the 14th. But I still haven't started my period, haven't had a 30 day cycle in over a year, always 28 or 29. So now I'm suspecting the later ovulation date plus late implantation? If no period by Monday, I'll test again.
Marnica--Welcome back! And best wishes of an quick and healthy conception :)
Averlee--That sounds promising! My last pregnancy was mysterious in that way. I had missed my period, had DTD on the days surrounding my temperature spike but had many BFN, 14+ days after O. I even went to have a blood test done and that was a BFN too! The weirdest part was that just a few days after my blood test, I finally got my BFP POAS! We're talking nearly 20+ days after O! For some women this just happens!
