Nursing mommies in July - Page 10

post #181 of 610
thanks so much and congrats again!!!!
post #182 of 610
Yay, Xanadu Mama! Congratulations, that’s wonderful! Vitex must be some pretty good stuff! HHNM!

esmlranch, hooray for your sister! A year is a long time to do this so I bet she’s thrilled and relieved at the same time. And hoping for you to O, too!

Dreams in Digital, I’m no fertility expert by a long shot but wouldn’t the first post-baby O be what would trigger your first PPAF to arrive? If you’re paying close attention you probably have a good chance of catching that egg!

Moonprysm I sure hope you find out what’s going on soon. “PUPO” makes me giggle. I’ll vote for that, and I’m glad you’re not making yourself crazy over it. I’ve got my fingers crossed for you!

attached2mason, it’s easy to take every little thing as a sign, isn’t it? Good for you, though. Not obsessing can be relaxing!

ibbit, maybe you ovulated late this month? If you’ve got good timing for both dates, it’ll make it harder to wait it out, but it’s just 3 or 4 days’ difference – hang in there!

Bella Catalina, thanks so much for the encouraging words. Your whole cheerful post made me smile! Wow, if your software assumes you’re pg at 18 DPO… I’m sure of my O date, it was really obvious and painful this month. (Happened on the bus on the way to a Rockies game.) Today is 20 DPO, no sign of AF still, and I’m starting to let myself feel hope. I’ll wait to test until tomorrow, because I told myself I would. Say, maybe at 12:01 a.m.? Now that would be FMU!! I hope you finally ovulated and hope the heartburn goes away fast. I’ll be looking for your updates for sure!

What's PUPO? Did I miss something?

I'm on CD 19, I had lots of fertile mucous last Wed/Thurs, ferns on the microscope Friday, and then I went away for the weekend, and my temps are so whacked out, I don't know what to do with them. Today it seemed like my temp barely registered, as in, if that were really my temp, I think I'd be dead! So frustrating. So I'm feeling like I'm in limbo for a while. Hopefully it sorts itself out soon. I hate the waiting game. But you all can relate, right?

I am so excited! My temp was up again today and FF gave me SOLID cross hairs! I can't help it, I have my hopes up. Looks like we have good coverage. How could we not, we were having a BD marathon!
For once I have a normal looking chart. Check it out in my siggy!


Please move me to 2ww!!

Now, let the obsessing and imaginary pg symptoms begin....................

PUPO = Pregnant Until Proven Otherwise
I love that, I have to give credit to Brooke.

Ahhh, thanks. And congrats on the solid CH! I'm dreaming of those myself.
post #187 of 610
AF showed up this morning. Early. I'm only on CD 25 I think. What a bummer. Move me back to waiting to o please.
post #188 of 610
So I'm tentatively calling myself 1DPO. No more EWCM today, actually hardly any CM at all and my CP has moved itself to low and is closed.
Please move me to the 2WW

I'll be testing obsessively within the next 9-10 days.

I really want to join this thread but without AF being regular I feel like an outsider . I got my first pp AF on June 3 and haven't seen it since. I have a feeling she's going to take a few more months off. I was really wanting to ttc! So, all we can do is try anyways I guess. Is there a chance I could still ovulate anyway? I don't chart or take my temperature but I am familiar with checking CM.

Okay well I wish all you ladies luck this month~!!!
post #190 of 610
Can you please add me to Waiting to be Ready? DS is going to be 2yr in August and still no AF. Thanks to everyone for all the helpful info i've read here about vitex, etc. I do not want to night wean/wean, but I'm afraid if i don't get AF soon, DH is going to start to push the issue. It is helpful for me to see that I am not the only mama out there who hasn't gotten AF after almost 2 yrs. I was beginning to think that my body was broken.
post #191 of 610
Please add me to Waiting to O also - I'm new to this forum.

and hmberhalter, I am RIGHT THERE WITH YOU - My ds is 18 1/2 months. There's no sign of O or AF or anything, and it's hard to feel like there's nothing wrong with you. We did nightwean, mostly, but he makes up for it between 5 and 8 am!

I don't know much about charting but I check my CM and there is nothing.

If you have had a PPAF you are probably ovulating - not a sure thing but probably.

Just to give you some hope, I was not having any CM that I could find (did have a tiny amount last week) and I started using OPKs and found out that I am ovulating. I do have AF back, so that can make a difference but you can be ovulating with out AF.
post #194 of 610
How can that be??? I thought I read in TCOYF that the only way you can ovulate but not menstruate is if you catch the first egg. Where does the egg GO otherwise? Please explain - I'm so curious!

and thanks for the encouragement!
post #195 of 610
Hello. So many new nursing mammas ttc! Sorry I haven't been "around" much...I did have a ? though. What is up with 5 days of positive OPK's???? Heck, there may even be more but I ran out of tests!

I also saw a super cute little boy and his little sister both sleeping in the back of a car today and it really made my heart break. I have been feeling extra : the last couple of days...Any extra words of encouragement would be great. We just passed 1 year of actively ttc (post first ppaf).

Um, a BIG yeah that. How can you ovulate without AF? Because if that's possible, I guess that's what's up with me. :-/

How do you think I should take them if I haven't yet had PPAF? I was going to continue to take them until I think I get my first O. Did you take your entire cycle or only up to O?

Hang in there mama! It will happen for you!

I took it the whole cycle. I can't see the harm in taking it even if you haven't had PPAF yet. It takes a while to build up in the body, apparently, so it might take a couple months to have an effect.

I voted 14 days triphasic.

I will seriously be floored if you aren't pg. FWIW it was 20 dpo before i got a BFP with ds and the line was still sort of faint. Anyway, : for you!!
