Oceanone, I am so sorry. Be extra kind to yourself while you digest all of this.

Oceanone --
I'm so sorry. I'm sending you warm thoughts. I hope you get that dark positive line the next cycle.

I went to the Dr. and she's doing a blood test to check the levels of my hormones. She thinks I will have to wean all-together to get AF back. That makes me not like her. We'll see what my test results are. I think I'm going to wait it out a bit longer and then call my midwife that attended Jude's birth at home. I jive with her much better that Dr. woman.

JC-Cat congrats! Way to go!

Hi Claire! That dingbat Doctor woman, what does she know? Seriously, what did she base that idea on? Unless she has some superior knowledge, then I think, at this point, she is just plain wrong. 17.5 months is just not all that long (I mean it feels long to us, but it's normal). Do you remember Beth_TX? She was posting on here a few months ago. Her daughter was 22 months or so and she hadn't gotten AF back yet and was wanting to ttc. Finally around 22 months she got AF and conceived on her second cycle, without weaning. So poo on Dr. Dingbat! It will be interesting to see what the blood tests show though, huh? I hope you are feeling peaceful and well. I've been thinking of you.

Ann, how far are you into the 2ww? Any symptoms? When are you gonna test?

How 'bout you other 2ww'ers?

Me, I'm just hanging out, waiting to O, thinking it might be gearing up to happen. Actually I'm hoping it's happening today. I've had serious ferning on my saliva microscope yesterday and today and definite eggwhite too. Oh please, oh please, oh please!! I'll find my chart link and post it though at this point it's not much to see. Maybe tomorrow- cross your fingers for me please.

Hey Claire-I would be really surprised if weaning was necessary to conceive. Cutting back may be necessary but weaning is not usually necessary (but there are cases of course) Just hope it's not the case with you! Hopefully your tests will confirm!

Chrissy, only 7dpo here and just ordered some preg tests from babywishes. Will probably get on Wed (9dpo) and will have to force myself to resist until at least Friday. We'll see. I'm trying not to over analyze symptoms but man have I been moody these past 3 days-I even barked at my Dh to "shut up" yesterday and that NEVER happens here. I've yelled at my DS twice this am for little reason too. Then a friend called today to say they delivered a boy at 4am this morning and I starting crying. A little nauseaus last night but OK today. So not getting too worked up but will probably bust a vein if AF shows up in the next day or 2 (showed at 8dpo last month).

Just hoping this progesterone works!!!

So just hanging out a few more days....

Chrissy, I am so hopeful that you are gonna make over the top and finally O this time. Want me to give you a tiny little push, ever so gently?

Oceanone, I'm so sorry. Thinking of you going through that makes me want to take a cue from the hard-core UC'ers and forgo all future pregnancy tests. I agree with the others that sometimes it just stinks when you know too much information. Well, you know we are all thinking about you and sharing your misery and hoping for a better outcome next time.

Claire. So how many toddlers has your doctor nursed? Um-hmm, okay, none? Right. And what does she care if your precious boy has to stop nursing? Oh, she doesn't care? Sure, okay, got it. Oh, and she had been reading what research? Wait, there really isn't any...Huh. Gee. I don't know, but I think you may be onto something with that idea of seeking another opinion.

Also, I know this isn't what you want to hear, but you WILL get your fertility back. It WILL happen. I never thought it would take me half this long to get mine back. I was ready when ds was 15 mos. (well, really I was ready about 1w pp ). Hopefully it won't be that long for you. But even if it is...well, maybe there is a reason. Everyone gave me lots of encouragement, Enjoy the one you have right now, You could wean and still not get pg, You have plenty of time (Ha! that's easy for them to say! who knows how many more I may want, and I'm already 32!)...none of them made it easier to wait. Heck, here I've had 2 ppaf's and I'm still sooo frustrated some days because they aren't right yet. Plus I'm still not pg! Wait, wasn't I supposed to be encouraging you? Oh yeah. The thing is is that it sucks but we're here feeling you and you will get through the wait. And the up side is that you may end up having a little helper by the time you have the next babe. Even if I got pg today my little fella would be very close to 3 which is practically grown up! Which, now that the bulk of my wait is hopefully behind me, I must say will be a lot easier than if I'd gotten pg at 15 mos. (or 1 week!).

jc_cat, congrats! I'd also like to thank you on behalf of the entire group of nursing mamas ttc for taking our plight to heart and doing your part to give us all some hope to hang onto!

Hope everyone else is doing okay and doing their part to give us reason to celebrate!

Hi all

I just popped by, mostly to check on Chrissy (I felt so sure she would be the first to get pg here! She is a very big reason why I got pg when I did and I thought all that good kharma would make her get pg for sure!). I'm keeping my fingers crossed for all of you. It's so hard to wait--so many of you are having to wait much longer than I did. Anyway, good luck and baby dust to all!

peace, Beth

Oceanone, I'm so sorry. Try to treat yourself a little if you can.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am really really shocked, completely thrilled but shocked!! I had been feeling all week but didn't really think it was related b/c I didn't start feeling nauseous with my dd until around 8 wks.

I'm really kind of speechless...
Congrats!!!! I'm so happy for you!!!!

Can I just say that you mama's all rock?

Honestly, I've never seen a group of such supportive and wonderful people. I hope everyone can give themselves a big ole hug for me!

And a big ol right back at ya Owensmom!

Beth, it's so good to hear from you! I hope I'll be seeing you over on the other side soon.

Tracy, please give me a big giant firm, not gentle, push! I want to ovulate!!!!!!!!!!!! Where are you in your cycle by the way?

Ann, oh my gosh, so soon. How exciting. I am so hoping this will be the month for you. Your symptoms sound very very promising.

Rubelin, hope your Ovacue shows that you ovulated soon. Oh and here's some happy tummy dust for you ^*~+*^~ .

Thinking positive thoughts for you Terrbear.

Oceanone, how are you doing? I'm still thinking of you. More

Claire, how bout you?

Just a quick before bed note...I just got back from my great aunt's funeral, and it was sad, of course, especially because it just makes me realize again how important family is to me.

And my temp dropped well below cover today, and spot found me...so my lp is actually shorter than the last two months.

I'm sooo excited for you, Jennifer!!! I don't mean to sound like a sob story, I really am happy that you got such a nice surprise for mother's day!! I hope that I'll be joining you soon...but I'm also going to look into other things, as well, to get my life straightened out a bit.

And Oceanone, I'm so sorry about all the confusing signs. I really hope that you haven't experienced a very early m/c, it is such a sad thing to have to face. Please let us know how the next few days go and remember all the great women that are here to experience life with you.

Ann, Claire, Chrissy, everyone...I have you all in my thoughts!

A sleepy and weary...

Chrissy, I did forget to tell where I am, didn't I? Duh. Oh, and...PUSH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am currently on cd9. I am very hopeful for a good month. I think my body is really gearing up to O good. I've had 2 patches of EWCM already, totalling 4 days out of the 9. Crazy, huh?

I think it's cause we've been doing really well with the "no nursies til morning" routine this past week. That may get blown tonight, though. Aidan fell this evening and you know that whispy tissue between your gums and upper teeth, up there at the top? He ripped his from the gum. There was a big, gaping bloody purple hole in the gum. <shudder> I think it's already starting to reattach, though, after just a few hours. Amazing! Maybe it's all the ice cream he got to eat for dinner

Jster, hope things look better in the morning. Sounds like you are plum wore out.

Ann, I meant to tell you before, I hope that if af can't stay away altogether that you at least don't see her for several more days. Seriously, though, she really just needs to stay on at home!

Hi Everyone,

I am feeling so much better this morning. The last couple of days have been awful and the cramps and headaches and vomiting are things I haven't experienced before. Today I feel better and everything looks rosier.

I want to thank you all so much for your kind thoughts and words. They really helped.

I tried to spend all of yesterday doing gentle stuff with my son (felt too icky and heavy leaky to go out). So, we skipped playgroup and rolled around in the garden, stayed in the playroom, sang, danced and read heaps. We did all the washing and it took hours because he wanted to help and then there was running through the sheets and collapsing in laughter and they came down all around him. I feel like yesterday was the real Mother's Day for me, the one I missed.

Jennifer, I am sorry about your great Aunt.


Tracy, OMG, your poor little Aidan!

Lots of good vibes and warm fertile wishes to everybody.
post #95 of 216
Well, AF just made her visit this morning. I am beginning to think that my cycle is finally starting to look more "normal" I've only had 3 periods since Saige was born. The first was in the middle of January, second April 2 and this one May 13. On to trying for a February baby.
post #96 of 216
Oceanone - to you, I'm glad that you had such a good day with your son.

Claire - I know that some women don't get AF back until after they completely wean but it's certainly not the case for most women. I hope your hormone tests come back completely normal and AF shows up soon!

I have big news today - I did not end up having my endometrial biopsy today because my beta-HCG yesterday showed that I'm pregnant!! I'm totally nervous and thrilled and really hope this ones a keeper - please send me lots of healthy baby vibes

I have an u/s scheduled for 2 weeks from now bc of my m/c history and really hope we only get good news from here on I'm trying to decide whether to take the progesterone supplements my dr prescribed. Along with the beta yesterday, they tested my progesterone and it was 158 - apparently that's through the roof high so my dr really doesn't think I need the supplements. Not sure what to do :

and to all
