I would have to guess that your cycles are still wonky...your DD is like 2 or 3 months old, right? BTW....I LOVE the name Marin.....how do you pronounce it?


Thanks! I did start up shortly thereafter...would have posted earlier but still adjusting to 2 kids!! :

Marin (Mare-in) is 3 months old - so it would have been a little nutty/crazy having 3 under 3!! (sigh) On one hand I really want a break for my bodies sake - on the other hand I don't want to have such a long break that I struggle with getting back into "baby mode"...and on the third hand (don't I wish I had one somedays!) I want Marin to have her baby time too!!

Such is the life!

Nursing mamas, can I ask yall a question?

I'm nursing my 22 months old and TTC after a miscarriage this spring. I went to my doctor today for a short luteal phase and she wants to put me on Clomid. Is Clomid okay for nursing a toddler? He's only nursing 3-4 times per day, getting most of his nourishment through milk and adult foods.

I've searched through MDC and couldn't really find anything helpful.

She also offered me progesterone suppositories..she said it was my choice but felt Clomid would work more quickly and better. Would progesterone be a better choice while nursing?

Sorry to pop in here

personally, I'd start with progesterone cream or suppositories (from soy, not yams)... the cream has a really strong impact on my system. I was over-using it for a while and had some wacked out problems. but, it's so much more gentle on our bodies.

sorry that I don't know about clomid and nursing. I did get the okay from three different professionals re: nursing and the cream, though. :-)

Here's the link to my chart. Frankly I think I ovulated two days ago, yet my cervical fluid just never dries up hardly. I thought I ovulated earlier but I'm guessing I didn't. Drives me nuts.

there have been a couple of mamas here who have tried clomid. surromommy2be (christina) is currently trying clomid, but she is out of town for the weekend, otherwise i am sure she would talk to you about it. you could pm her.
sorry i don't have any info on it myself.

I have a question for you ladies. My first pp period came on June 3 (12 months pp) It lasted a week and I haven't seen it since. To normal standards I would be "late". I haven't taken a preg test in a few days. Is this normal for my period to be so sporadic? And when does everything get back to normal?

With both my boys I didn't get AF back til they were 24-5 months. Hopefully yours comes back quick! I ended up jump starting mine with vitex the first time, this time did nothing other than reduce nighttime feedings.

Going by my cervical fluid I should O in the next few days.

My first month I was 35 days and it slowly worked itself back down to a 30 day cycle over the next 3 months.

My PP AFs are always sporadic. After DS3 I think I had a 50 something day cycle followed by a 45 day cycle. I got pregnant with DD after that so I don't know how it would have gone after that but rest assured it's not just you.

Update from me...

... I got a BFP this morning!!! :

DH asked how we did that, and frankly, I'm wondering too

I POAS on CD31 and it was negative, but I've been so exhausted lately, I decided to "waste" another test this morning (CD40)! WOO-HOO!!!

I think I'll be due early/mid-March. Same as my DD!! At least I can wear the same maternity clothes. I just hope they don't have the same birthday!

Best wishes to everyone else here

Ok ladies, my temp is back down this morning. http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/14fd50

I slept restlessly Thursday morning after about 3 am, and take my temp at 6 am, should I discard my temp from yesterday? It wouldn't have been possible to get 3 hours of consecutive sleep since I didn't go to be till after midnight then slept restlessly from 3 am till 6 am when my alarm went off to temp, then slept restlessly from 6 am till 9 am when my kids got up.

Congratulations anthasam! That’s awesome! When we started TTC #2 we thought it would be fun to have their b-days close together. I did think it would be good to be able to wear the same maternity clothes, but having an excuse to buy new stuff is fun too. Enjoy!

ibbit, I don’t temp, but if you didn’t really sleep for long it might not be a valid temp. Your body was doing all sorts of things which could have affected it.

As for us, no AF yet. I almost want to test just to get the suspense over with, but suppose I can wait a few more days. It’s so hard, though. We’ll just keep hanging in there!

Thanks! I'm starting to get excited I just hope they don't have the exact same birthday -- I'd like them to be able to enjoy their own special days.

Congrats anthasam!!! H9m!

Today is 14dpo. My temp stayed up, so I'm not expecting AF today. But I did manage to show some kind of willpower and not test. lol I might test tomorrow if my temp is still up. I REALLY have to know before Tuesday when I'm scheduled to get my chicken pox shot.

Hi mamas!

Wow, I disappeared for a few days and have 7 pages to catch up on : so no personals for now!

On the 3rd, I stopped temping cold turkey and man, it is HARD! Temping has been such a control issue for me ~ the one thing I could do my best to control in the middle of ths mess that is cycling and TTC while BFing... I know it is all up to God anyway and I really felt He was asking me to lay it all at His feet, so I am being obedient. But it is hard. Today is the 3rd day I haven't temped. I still don't know if I've ovulated either, and what makes it even harder is that my EWCM doesn't dry up most months, either, despite the clear thermal shift. So who knows. Maybe by next cycle I will be okay to temp again, but we'll see.

: Warning, rant ahead :

I'm struggling so much with the fact that there is nothing I can do to change this. I'm getting impatient, and I know I just need to relinguish all attempts at controlling this, but I hate the fact I can't control it, and it is so hard to let it go. I don't know how you mamas who are still waiting on PPAF 2 years later are doing it.... my hat goes off to all of you. I am thankful that I am at least ovulating, but I am still sub-fertile.

Sure, I could wean my son and hope for the best, but I don't want to wean him when he still obviously needs his boobies... and I don't want to give up my dream of tandem nursing. And who is to say that weaning will mean I'll be pregnant again any time soon? I don't have anyone to talk to about this. All my friends IRL are as mainstream as they get and the few that nurse can't believe I'd still nurse him past 1 year anyway, I truly doubt most of them will nurse for a year. And in my online groups, friends are popping up pg again at 4mths PP like crazy. So no one understands like you girls... and I know many of us are in the same boat. What was I thinking when I thought I needed to take a break from this board... I need you girls! As bad as this may sound, I think this board is the only one I am part of, where I can TRULY rejoice over every BFP I've seen announced.

I apologize for my rant, I am sure I will feel better now that I am able to unload it somewhere. Thanks for letting me get it off my chest... and if you read this far, thanks

I'll BBL... as soon as I have the time to catch up! I hope everyone is doing well.

Brooke

quick question for yu mamas takign b6- does it make you nauseated? i tok mine with my prenatal this morning with breakfast and ive been feeling all icky since then.
post #140 of 610
I think I'm going to ovulate. I was pretty sure I wasn't ovulating even though I was having periods wasn't getting my hopes up for TTC (still trying not to hope too much) but yesterday I had a little bit of sticky CM and today I've got about a 35% line on my ovulation pee stick thing. Even if pregnancy doesn't happen for awhile at least I know my body is doing something. So, I'm very excited.
