Nursing Momma's TTC- February - Page 7

post #121 of 133

Finally! AF arrived today. I never thought I'd be so happy for her return. Please move me to waiting to O, DD 17 months, 1 PPAF.

Congrats Sere!!!  So exciting!

 

Northwoods... We are both on CD1!  Hopefully we will both get a BFP this month.  

 

 

I had a chemical pregnancy in January, then this cycle was 50 days... hopefully this next one will be  shorter.

 

What does everyone think of December babies.  I am wondering if it is a good idea.  Historically, I O around CD21, so that would give me a due date around the middle to end of December.  DH's bday is Dec. 20 and then Christmas.... Part of me is just wanting to have a baby, but another part of me is nervous about all the germs I will have with 2 older kids (4.5 and 2.5 at the time).  Hmmmm any opinions?

Sigh... December babies... After TTC for months, we got pregnant with DS and he was born the day after Christmas. Now, I want another around 2 years younger than him, which means potentially another Christmas Baby, if I conceive next cycle. After the birthday party we threw him this year on the 26th, I swore Never Again- it was way stressful trying to have the party the day after Christmas in my family. 

 

All that said, We're not going to TTA next cycle- what happens happens, and if we get another holiday baby, it was meant to be! (My sister & I have birthdays a week before and a week after Christmas, respectively, so I know what it's like!)

Congrats Sere!!!

 

Yay for AF arriving Northwoods.  I was so happy when mine came back too!

 

Sorry to hear AF arrived for you, Chloe's Mama -

 

AFM - Temp dropped today 10 DPO and I just started a bit of spotting so AF is imminent.  I am feeling so depressed.  I told myself I would drop DD down to 2 nursing/day (first thing in AM and before bed) if I didn't get pg this month but I am so upset at the thought of it right now.  I just love our afternoon cuddle when I get home from school.  I also know that I will have to wean to do fertility so I feel like dropping a nursing is a step in that direction but then I feel horrible to think about it.  Any suggestions???

 

I will update the thread after DD goes to bed.

 

~~~~We still need someone to take over for March - any takers?~~~

I volunteer to take over for March... my birthday month!  Hopefully we will all get BFP for a present!

Congratulations Sere234 and lairac!!  Awesome and sticky sticky thoughts!! :-D

Sorry jj1107 about your BFN.  :(  Don't get too down though, these things take time, esp with fertility issues.  Ugh, no fun, I know, but let's give thanks to being moms and hope we can get lucky with some natural conceptions! :)

AFM:  I tested on Sunday (11dpo) and it was a clean BFN.  I'm not feeling much of anything so I am waiting for AF.  This is the first month I have been a little disappointed.  It's been 9 cycles of TTC now, I think?  I don't know if we will TTC this next cycle, but this is the last cycle of 2012 we can try so I am wavering (not that I personally have anything against the number 13, but hmm).  On the lighter note, I had an awesome day with the kiddos and my daughter only nursed 3 times yesterday and only 2 times today! :-O  This is a definite first, I think we are at another step in the weaning process.  It's very bittersweet, but we are ready to give up the daytime feedings and move to just the wake up feeding and the bedtime feeding.

PS - Thanks Cloesmama for taking over the thread! :D

Ugh, December babies! I don't envy any of you that decision! DH and I had talked about not TTC next month in order to avoid a December baby but I have a very strong feeling I would have ignored that and totally gone for it. Hard to override that "I want a baby NOW!" feeling with the smaller "Holiday birthdays are hard!" sentiment.

Ugh!

Good Afternoon ladies, Any last updates for February before I hand over the thread to Chloe'sMama?

 

I will definitely not be TTA this month. At this point, I would take a Christmas Day birthday over having to do fertility treatments again! 

post #132 of 133

Yeah, I think we will just run with it this month too.  I had a 8 day LP, so hopefully taking B6 this month will allow us to have a Dec. baby!  

 

Good luck everyone!
