i posted something about this in 'family planning' but have not got much response and I know some of you successfully use FAM to avoid.
So, fertility returned at 14 months and 17 months with the 2 girls. Both nursed on demand, co-slept and nursed at night. They did however use pacifiers. DS also co-sleeps, nurses on demand and nurses all night. He will not take a pacifier, so often times he will pacify with my breast.
A few weeks ago I had patches of super stretchy EWCM then it dried up. Again this week I had a day of super stretchy EWCM and then it dried up again. Can my body really be gearing up to O already? DS is 3.5 months now.
We have not usually taken precautions between pregnancies and our spacing works out very well. DH is 99% sure he is done, even though I would like another (not now, at least 2 years apart). I do NOT want to get pregnant now. I hate barrier methods and we don't have much success with pulling out. Avoiding is also a challenge since we usually have to take the opportunity when all kids are either asleep, or otherwise occupied. Hormone BC is also out. So....... what to do?
HOP- I know you are pretty successful at avoiding, what do you think? Is my body trying to O so much earlier this time? I woiuld think I would not get fertility back until at least 20 months or so.
