We'll I got a BFP!! I waited to test 3 days past missed AF. My wife wanted to wait I can't believe I did I am not that patient.
We have not told anyone IRL we are trying even. It's so hard to keep my mouth closed but it's better to make sure everything is okay before we tell. So I 'll wait for a while though if I have morning sickness/ all day like last time it will be hard for people not to miss.
This try was cycle number 2. We AI three times this cycle with our friends' (and DS dad ) fresh donation.
We tried at home cycle day 13, 15, and 17.
I wasn't sure how the nursing would effect everything my baby's grandma who is a CNM (midwife) said I should wean before ttc but I thought I would go for it anyway. My midwives had said that many of their clients did it tandum. So I am going to go for it and nurse as long as it feels right.
I got AF back 4 months pp even though I exclusively breastfed my son for 7 1/2 months.
I was totally in the dark on whether I had o'd because I am not taking my temperature since I usually nurse early morning before I am totally awake so the temps would be all crazy so I stopped charting them but I just went on the cm and OPK test.
So this is my update. I know it usually takes a lot longer with AI. I am so incredibly thankful for this opportunity to be a mom again. I feel so blessed I want to cry.
sticky vibes and baby dust to everyone ttc
