new here! got the baby bug!
Hi! I'm new to the TTC forums and, I guess, technically we're not trying yet but I'll tell you my little tale....
My darling twins are 17 months and still nursing. I have had no period since before they were conceived. We night-weaned about a month ago however they still nurse about 4-5 times a day, so x2 that's pretty much like nursing a newborn!
But since the night-weaning I have started to have some signs of my fertility coming back. We charted using the Creighton method (mucus only) before I got pg. so I am familiar with fertile mucus (is that what EWCM refers to?) The week before Christmas I had fertile mucus for the first time and got a little freaked because we had DTD a couple days before. I had some pg. symptoms about a week later and was going to test but then I had CM again. I think I didn't O and my body is just working up to it. Anyways.... when we thought I might be pg. we got kind of excited so I think we are going to TTC soon. So I guess I am waiting to be ready
I'm not going to worry too much about it this month but I am going to start charting and maybe even temping again and also work on slowing the twins down nursing (this was my plan before and not necessarily related to TTC). If nothing by Feb. I think we'll be a little more pro-active about it. I am interested in the Vitex I have read about on this board.
So, sorry so long
but I'm glad there's a place to come and dish about mucus!
Oh, and I think I am going to test in a couple days just in case I did catch that 1st pp eggie! I doubt it though, I don't really feel pg. but then again my only experiece with pg. was twins so if I were to carry a singleton I bet I wouldn't even notice it!!!
Can't wait to get to know everyone and share in all the baby excitement!
