TTC while Nursing- May - Page 4post #62 of 1115/21/12 at 5:27ampost #63 of 1115/21/12 at 10:02ampost #64 of 1115/21/12 at 11:51am
What cycle day do people normally O? Like 12-15? It's my first full PP cycle and I just started getting ewcm yesterday. Today will be CD 12 so I imagine I haven't O'd yet. But it would probably happen, what, within a week of starting to get ewcm? (not temping or charting)
organicviolin- Congrats on the BFP!
HopefulJo- sorry to hear your still waiting. It's all so frustrating, especially when you get your hopes up (which you can't help but do!)
Chloe'sMama- Don't know anything about OPK's but good luck and hopefully you caught that egg!post #65 of 1115/21/12 at 12:49pmLetileon- i usually o around cd 20-22. Although, my first pp cycle i didnt o until cd 40 and the it was cd30 then cd27 thwn cd 9 and this cycle it was cd21 or cd22. Always dtd with ewcm, but i have to say that i get several patches of ewcm before i actually o. My body does seem to take a bit longer to regulate though.post #66 of 1115/21/12 at 5:43pm
I'm frustrated and confused today. AF still hasn't come on full force. I've had spotting since Saturday night. I NEVER get spotting except at the end of a period. I usually have extremely heavy AFs. I don't know what to think. Pregnancy tests are still negative although I'm getting evap lines...which is also a new phenomenon. Just waiting for something definitive to happen one way or the other!post #67 of 1115/21/12 at 7:49pmThread Starter
Great new organic violin!
letileon- Since having DS I've been Oing around CD22. I generally have very long patches of CM warning me as my body tried to O.
CD 10 here and no AF yet. My longest LP has been 11 days and I'm tempted to hold off on testing until Wednesday morning. I have some acne coming out tonight and that often happens right before AF but I've also been wearing tons of sunblock so that could be it too. DS has been sleeping horribly the past couple of nights nursing all night long and screaming when I unlatch him. He finally went to bed about 2.5 hours after bedtime tonight. I'm not sure what's causing it, could be AF on it's way coule be pregnancy. Does anyone else find early pregnancy symptoms completely ambivilous? Either way I'll know for sure by the end of the week!
Would anyone be up for Thread Hostess next month? We've just started kitchen renos so I won't be around much. It's not difficult, especially since there aren't many regular posters anymore. PM me if you are interested.post #68 of 1115/22/12 at 8:17am
I'm on my way out of here, ladies.....I'm in the process of weaning Emery.....just a few weeks until her birthday (2) and we'll be done so that I can move forward with clomid to have another. Hopefully this summer/fall I'll be expecting again....we want the next two to be a little closer together than Macie and Emery are!post #69 of 1115/22/12 at 9:51am
Thanks Ladies! jr'smom I just posted on the other forum, but that's exactly what happened with me. faint tests etc. So, I went to the Dr today and was confirmed that I'm pregnant.
I told my hubby by showing him the stick this am. Then of course I called him after the Dr apt. - he's thrown for a loop. He wasn't exactly in a great place for another bundle of baby. So, I dunno what to think. On one hand I'm happy but on the other I'm disappointed because he's not at all into it at all and has said that he'd rather not add to the 2 we have. So, yea...this is not helping my emotional state.
Did anyone else have a DH (our relationship is great, and he's an amazing father) who just wasn't into yet another baby? Did he come around or did he begin resenting you or the new baby to be?post #70 of 1115/22/12 at 7:25pmThread Starterpost #71 of 1115/22/12 at 9:09pm
Sorry I've been MIA, but life has been crazy around here... I'll need to catch up on your threads later
Organicviolin--Congratulations!!! That is awesome!!
AFM--Please change me to No PPAF as of yet... What I thought was PPAF may not have been as it was very light and I've had another episode of "unusual faint bleeding" with lots of EWCM. My BBTs are totally out of whack as well. Anyway, I met with my chart instructor and told me that wasn't AF. On the bright side, since my hormones have been so crazy, I decided to night wean my son and we've been doing that for four nights and he nurses quite less now... which is not what I wanted, but at least it can allow my hormones to go back to normal!!
Have a beautiful week!post #72 of 1115/23/12 at 6:22ampost #73 of 1115/23/12 at 4:49pmpost #74 of 1115/24/12 at 7:59am
This may sound totally crazy but before I found out I was pregnant with DS my husband and I saw two turtles. One was outside of our house. A big turtle just walking in the grass by the sidewalk. We live in an urban area nowhere near a place where a turtle would be. Then a few days later a turtle crossed the road in front of us on a road I'd driven on since being a child. I had never seen a turtle on it. We stopped and moved it across the road. A week or so later, I found out I was unexpectedly pregnant. I always felt, in retrospect, that the turtles had been signs of the news and that when I got pregnant again we may (or not) have the same herald animal. So we have seen two turtles yesterday and today. But the turtle today was dead...and it was a baby. DH found it while walking on a trail with DS. They brought it home because DH thought it was alive. It wasn't. Now I'm a little freaked out that it means something because I am in my "fertile period" and we've been DTD a lot this week. As many of you know I've had one PPAF and this is my second cycle. I don't know if I've ovulated but I feel like there's a good chance. I admit I've been a little nervous because I feel like I've seen a lot of women have miscarriages or chemical pregnancies soon after their first PPAF when they are still BF. Is that really common? Now I'm all freaked out that the universe is telling me I'm pregnant but it won't last. Do I sound crazy or what?! Anyway I know none of you have any answers on this one but I needed to get this out somewhere because I know all DH would tell me is "don't worry". Thanks for indulging me :)post #75 of 1115/24/12 at 11:21amQuote:Originally Posted by letileon

We conceived my 2nd cycle PP. So far so good - baby to be in January. I feel pregnant that's for sure! I'm already bloated and am burping up a storm, ain't it grand? I hope that you get a sticky BFP!post #76 of 1115/24/12 at 7:05pmThread Starter
letileon- I totally believe in stuff like that. I never dream and when I do it usually come true at some point in the future. Before I found out I was pregnant with DS I kept dreaming that was pregnant and had a newborn. We had just decided to wait a few more months before TTC so I figured I just had babies on my brain. Tuns out I was pregnant!
I tested again this morning and got a BFN. AF arrived this afternoon. My LP lenghtened to 12 so that's good. I knew our timing was awful this month so I"m not really surprised.
post #77 of 1115/25/12 at 9:46amHi All! This will be my first time TTC while BFing, my first babe was born last July. We'd really like our kids as close together as possible, so we're starting now and we'll see how long it takes us! It took 7 months to conceive #1.
Anyway, this was our first month TTC, I'm in the 2WW now. My chart link is here: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/LivingSky
So... HI!post #78 of 1115/25/12 at 5:44pm
It feels strange to be posting here. 2 weeks ago, I was very much NOT ready for another. My toddler is 19 months, and I have yet to have my PPAF. Then last week we DTD, first time since before she was born because I just have NO interest whatsoever for a long time after birth, and were not quite as careful as we could have been, though not hugely risky either, but #3 happened under similar circumstances. And it was fairly likely that I was ovulating, because that tends to make me more interested in such things. I realized a few days later that this was kind of stupid, and I'd probably end up having to take a test this month since there's a good chance I'll continue not having a period regardless since AF hasn't returned yet.
And suddenly I realized that this idea made me incredibly excited, and I AM ready for another, and so is DH, and the kids have been asking when we are having another for a while now, and I'v ebeen at my job long enough for maternity leave but don't want to stay in this job forever, so it's good from that perspective...
So now I guess we're trying? Or at least not avoiding, but that's tended to lead to babies pretty quickly in the past. And I'm doing stupid stuff like looking up very early pregnancy symptoms. I'm an RN. And a doula. And have 3 kids. I don't need to be looking that stuff up. I think I'm also working myself up into nausea.
The only problem is that we have to not-try on a fairly widely spaced schedule until AF returns if I want to have any hope of pinpointing conception (my sleep schedule isn't going to allow for accurate temping).
DH brought home some tests today. It's really too early still, but it's hard to resist just trying one since there are three in the package! (I think DH is a little excited about this, too).
So strange to be happy about it. My last pregnancy was not planned, and difficult to adjust to..post #79 of 1115/25/12 at 5:47pmpost #80 of 1115/26/12 at 6:24pmThread Starter
