1 PPAF, DS 13 months

You have me listed in both 2WW and Waiting to O. Waiting to O is the correct placement for me right now.
CD10 and not much is going on... I got sick of tracking CF when I was ttc my daughter, because I had to check internally... never that much external (sorry for TMI) but I have noticed more externally in recent months. I'd probably get a better record of CF if I actually did check internally... which I should do because this is totally our month. A pregnancy now would yield a baby in late April or early May, just in time for my husband to be home all summer. :) Although it'll also mean that I'm trying to house-hunt while feeling like crap. But I resolved after my last pregnancy to not let this one lay me low. I felt so crummy in the first trimester and I don't want pregnancy to steal my life again. Part of it was psychological because I sort of felt like it was interminable because I had no sense of what came next or whether I'd really end up having a baby. But now I know what comes next and I feel a little more confident of getting a baby out of the deal (and I have one already to distract me) so hopefully it won't be as bad.
I can be moved to 2 WW based on a positive OPK. My temps are pretty unreliable - fertility friend can't find a for sure ovulation based on them, but the OPK was positive yesterday. We BD'd last night and will again tonight. I'm so very excited to know that I am ovulating!! It's awesome to finally feel like there is a chance for a baby sometime soon.
I can't help but think about getting pregnant this time around. Not obsessing is sooooo difficult! Any of you have any ideas on how to keep your mind off ttc????? I feel like I am constantly counting and checking dates....and wondering when it will happen.
HOpefully August bring lots of BFPs for all! =-)
Congratulations northwoods !! NewMama2BBBoy, I agree its sometimes hard to keep our minds busy with other things. My only tip is really to get busy about life, work, friends, fun ! It helps think of other things too while TTC.
Im in my 2WW, almost 9 DPO right now.
3rd month trying for our first child, and very excited by the journey :)
So I got the results of the blood test. Everything seems OK for now. :) I'm assuming if something goes wrong now nursing shouldn't be the reason. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a sticky baby this time. :)
Thanks for the new thread LivingSky!
Please move me to 2WW. I'm about 9dpo. BFN yesterday; didn't test today.
We're finally back from our 2 week RV trip around Lake Erie (Michigan, Niagara Falls ON, Pennsylvania, and Ohio are where we camped/stayed.) My 15month old is teething something fierce right now and nursing every hour or more around the clock! It's making me wonder if we "should" be done. I might be getting too old for this. I love them all and never complain (to them.) But maybe we are ready to enter the next phase of parenthood...the one with just big kids. I really don't know. I know I would still be excited to find out I'm pregnant. I'm just wondering if we should keep TTC or just let it happen if it happens. (Unlikely it would just happen as I'm usually "too tired" unless we are TTC.)
I just added up the number of months I've been nursing... 91 and counting. Wow! Around 40 of these months I had tandem nurslings too. I'm definately not ready to be done nursing...I want DD to nurse until she chooses to be finished--hopefull 3 yrs or so. Am I past my baby days? I don't know yet.
I think my 40th birthday approaching in January is messing with me ;-)
Please move me to the TWW. I don't have great hopes, though, b/c once again our timing was less than ideal. FF hasn't given me crosshairs yet, but I think it will tomorrow. And at least it looks like I'm not going to have another crazy weird cycle (knock wood), so I'm happy about that!
Lidamama, yay for you! Guess you'll get to TTC in earnest now?
Erigeron, I've only got one DS, so no idea about milk supply odds. He's almost 30 months, though, and honestly, I kind of hope that he weans during pregnancy. I'm feeling more ready to be done, although he still enjoys it a lot. But I don't know how many more months I can do this... I hope I will still be a nursing mama by time I get pregnant...we'll see.
Livingsky, thanks for the new thread!
CONGRATS to northwoods! Hoping for a sticky bean for you!
erigeron, I'm considering checking internally again myself. I did with DS, but haven't been up to this point because I don't feel like I NEED to, I can usually tell without (at least I think) but if it would help...anyway, I was just thinking that today. Also, like you, I've been thinking about my milk and nursing while pregnant. Being on holidays this week, DS has been nursing up a storm and loving it. I hope that I can keep my milk through my pregnancy and tandem nurse if that is what DS wants (if I were to conceive this month he would be 34 mos when the next baby is born). He still really loves his mamma moot...
AFM, back from holidays and still waiting to O (likely middle of the week or so). Our vacation was fun but I'm glad to be home! A week of camping followed by 3 days at the inlaws was enough for me! In other news...My BIL & SIL announced another pregnancy this morning. Their oldest DD is 28 mos, and the 2nd (and youngest) is 10 mos old and SIL is still BFing. They were not trying, and were planning to start TTC in December. So, she is in shock obviously but I know they'll be thrilled as we are for them. THEN, we gave DHs husband a ride home to the city with us and he told us THEY are expecting in February! Things happen in 3s, right??? I am REALLY hoping to jump on the baby bandwagon this month!
I'm still just lurking here waiting for AF to return. My sister just got her PPAF back this weekend, her son is 5mo younger than mine. My other sis got hers back when her daughter was a year. Why is my Body so sloooowww. I am getting very baby crazy right now.
Still waiting for PPAF. I had the smallest amount of spotting about a little over 2 weeks ago It was seriously such a little amount I wasn't sure if I should count it as a positive thing. I have been showing signs of ovulation, EWCM and even some ovary discomfort the last day or so but no pos. OPK and now the CM seems to be unfertile. I am hoping I just missed the surge but doubtful. I think my body is just trying and then backing off but maybe it means I will see AF in 10 days or so even if I didn't ovulate. I hope she shows this month at least so we can start TTC. My DD is going ot be 20 mo on the 17th so I think it is about time and she is only nursing about 4-5 times in 24 hrs.
I'm back to waiting to O as the witch showed up Friday night. I had a big dip in temp on Wednesday morning so thought she was coming Wednesday, then my temps shot back up Thursday & Friday and I got really nauseous on Thursday at dinner too. Then just before bed Friday I had some spotting. It was so light Saturday I thought it might not be real, but then got a light flow for Sunday and it eased back to spotting by last night and my temps have been gradually falling since Friday's peak.
I had decided to not chart this month, but then couldn't not take my temps. I am happy to have increased my Luteal Phase from 7 days up to 10 days. Now it just needs to be long enough for a sticky bean this month. I had a really light AF the month before we conceived DS2, so maybe this weird very light AF is exactly what I need for a BFP this coming cycle.
I've also noticed that the last 2 months I get EWCM for just a short time about 2-3 days before the BBT shows O. DH is also home on vacation next week, which is hopefully also the week leading up to O, so we should get plenty of opportunities to BD when neither of us is too tired.
May August be filled with lots of BFPs.
This BFP will hopefully result in a sticky baby (?) because, unlike the previous unlucky time, I'm getting sick, more every day. I had pretty much no symptoms before I mc. I should probably at least be more excited but am still just a little worried. :) I had declined yesterday's blood test because since progesterone was OK at 4-5 weeks I didn't want to bother them too much. I don't need any special treatment. And now I'm thinking I should have gone in and see the levels this time. But I won't. What is meant to happen will happen. :)
