I am in the TWW, as far as I can tell. I had some very light spotting today--what that means, I don't know yet. I may come back tomorrow to report I got my period early. shrug.gif

I am nursing mom to Ben who will be 3 Feb 28.  I finally have a cycle or what seems like one and tried for this egg.  Here is hoping with other nursing moms to be gestating a wee one :)

thanks for the new thread!


im vivica2 can you add me to Waiting to catch first PP egg  my DD is 8mo?


someone told me yesterday that if i take away the night nursings my af will return, im not ready to be that drastic yet, any other suggestions...supliments maybe?

post #9 of 104

2WW, 11mo LO


I O'd later then I thought I would so we'll see if I have a longer cycle or what happens.


vivca2 - I'm still night nursing as my LO sleeps most the night with me. My first ppaf came back at 10 1/2 months. I don't have any suggestions other then to wait a few months and it may come back on it's own.

Thanks for the thread! Congrats to Livingsky! Question for you ladies who bed share, how often is your LO nursing? DD 8 months spends at least 80% of the night latched on. Anyone still night nursing and had PPAF? I know everyone's different, just curious smile.gif

Me, me! My DD2, 19 mos, still nurses most of the night. I'm hoping she'll nightwean when I get pregnant smile.gif
post #12 of 104

I'm waiting to ovulate since my period did show up today. This is so freaking frustrating! I'm going try my best to chart my temps this month. Is it possible to have regular periods but not actually ovulate?

post #13 of 104

We co-sleep and my nursling still nurses frequently overnight. She will sometimes get a few solid hours of sleep and then she latches on on and off for most of the rest of the night. I've heard the night weaning can bring back PPAF, but I just can't bring myself to night wean - both because she really likes to nurse and because I am afraid of what might happen to my sleeping if I could not easily nurse her back to sleep in bed. It's been 15 months and I still haven't had PPAF. I've been trying to chart, but my temps all seem to be very low as compared to before I became pregnant. But, I have been having some light cramping and had some light brown spotting today, so perhaps fertility is returning. Will let you know.

post #14 of 104

I'd like to join. I haven't been on Mothering for quite a while but DS is 12 months now and I am ready to have another little squish! I am hoping to catch the first egg. DS has just started eating solids in a regular way so I'm hoping that might help with the return of my fertility.

post #16 of 104

Thanks stretch358 for starting up the January thread.  I just can't stay away from these forums despite my best efforts so I figured I should come out of lurkdom!  I was sooo disappointed when AF arrived last month... I even removed myself from the initial post.  Can you add me back in stretch358?  2WW: DD 21 mos  I feel like my body is all over the place so I'm wondering if I'm having anovulatory cycles (although very regular 27-29 days cycles).  I keep referencing my TCOYF book.  I had my wettest day on CD15 and I figured I O'd that day or early on CD16 since I then had a patch of creamy CM and my nipples became suddenly very sore when nursing (so my progesterone must have risen sharply) on CD16.  But my cervix was still SHOW until this morning, CD19.  I also continued to have some wet, stretchy, cloudy EWCM but my nipples were (and still are) painful.  We were pretty good about DTD every other day for most of my cycle although we went 3 days without while I was sick.  Hoping there was an egg released this cycle and that my hormone levels are doing what they should (but I suspect not because TCOYF says I should have dried up really quickly after O'ing).  I'm trying my best to be more relaxed about it this month.  DD still nurses around the clock, at least 12 times/day.  AF is due Jan 17th so we shall see soon enough :-)  Good luck everyone!

post #17 of 104

Can I be moved back to "waiting to be ready"? DH sufficiently reminded me how devastated I would be if my milk dried up right now, or before DS is even a year old. We'll probably wait two more months then start trying to catch that first egg.

My period finally came, Bout two weeks late. And man, it came with VENGEANCE.

Sparkle, I think you were right. This is my 3rd Ppaf, but it feels like my first. Looking back, even though my first two were the same number of days apart and both 5 days long, they were only brown spotting. This time around I feel like I'm going to die of blood loss. I'm feeling tired, crampy, full on pms, for the first time since Obug was born. He's 20 months old now, and I'm still nursing him, but ALOT lesS.

Do you think the first two periods, even though they seemed regular, maybe I wasn't ovulating? I'm hurting right now, but I'm so excited because I feel like I have got full fertility back and we might really have a shot in January.

Funny thing is, when I got pregnant with Obug, I tested on the 11th, because my period was due on the 5th. Here I am, 3 years later and my first period comes on the 6th. HAHAHAHA

We don't cosleep but Quinn still nurses at night, usually once, but often twice.  I got my first ppaf at 7 months, and I'm heading into my second cycle ttc.  Quinn does usually go a 6-8 hr stretch without nursing though, he doesn't like to nurse when he wakes in the morning, and then he doesn't go down for a nap till late morning, so often we get from 2 am till 10 am without.  I'm pretty sure I'm on the more fertile end of the spectum though, we got pg first cycle ttc with DS1, and I got pg while ntnp with DD while nursing at 12 mo pp (5th pp cycle), and Quinn was despite birth control.  One of my grandmothers had 7 babies the other grannie had 6, so I come from good breeding stock lol. That being said my first several cycles pp have a very short luteal phase so I can't get pregnant.  Maybe when yours return they will be more regular.

post #20 of 104

I'm still nursing around the clock, like every hr and a half through the night and my first ppaf came at 10.5 months.


I've gotten pg twice without getting any ppafs. The most in a row I've had between babies is 2.
