Thought I would jump in and get us started this month I am currently updating the first post, if you see anything that needs to be changed, please let me know, I will try to keep it up to date. I will be away from the computer for a few days around the 25th, as we are moving, but I can never stay away for too long, so the computer will be one of the first things we set up
How is everyone?

thanks for starting this brandi! i guess you can update me to dd is 25 months. or do you stop counting at 2 years? it'll be 25 months on sunday but i'm hoping that by jumping the gun, it'll trick that sneaky into showing. good luck with your move!

I am currently 6 dpo feeling completely normal. This is our fifth cycle ttc. PPAF returned last January and has only been (somewhat) normal for the past couple of cycles. I am still nursing my second dd, who just turned 2 on the 28th of last month. She nurses a lot, around the clock. Not currently trying to wean her at night yet, we have a lot going on with moving and mother-in-law's cancer, so I am keeping nursing a constant for her. I think it may be what is delaying pregnancy, but not sure, it could just not be the right time for us yet. We had no waiting to conceive our first two, so I think something is delaying things for a reason.

Can I join??? I am nursing my 14.5-month-old and just had a *very* light period (my first PP one) on Monday and Tuesday. I am hoping for an eggie this cycle!

I am going to start charting, but I don't know whether it will be helpful because I sleep so restlessly with DD nursing at night (so I don't know if my temps will be accurate), and I had no CM at all last time I conceived (ever).

Sooooooo, I may try some OPKs just 'cause. We were very fortunate to conceive our DD 12 days after I stopped the pill. Hopefully we will be as lucky this time!

Could I be added to the list? My AF is not here yet.. should be here within a few days. But I am 99% sure I am not pregnant. My cycles are kind of screwy. I got them back when dd was 16 months old. I am Mel and I guess you can add me to the Waiting to Ovulate list. I am nursing my 18 mo dd Zoe.

Milky, we are in almost the exact same situation! Because we thought we were pregnant, but we weren't, and that gave me major baby fever. However, I have yet to persuade DH.. I think I can do it though. We already have 3 little ones.

Hoping my AF comes soon.. or all of those pregnancy tests were just wrong!

Edited to add: question.. I started temping just a few days ago (keep in mind I am at the end of the cycle probably.. not even sure if I'm ovulating) and dd still nurses at night.. does this affect the temps? Because they seem kind of high to me. 98.4 two days and then 98.6 today. I don't get up to nurse her, just sort of nurse half asleep. She likes to marathon nurse at night sometimes.

good morning!

I ujst wanted to mention that right before i got AF back (at 4.5 months pp, though i nursed exclusively, coslept, no fake nipples, dont get me started!) I was convinced i was pregnant. I felt weird things happening in my uterus and ervix, has a strange clear discharge. I went to get a test, it was negative. the next day AF came to visit.

I am pretty sure those first 2 cylces were anovulatory. After that i could feel the Opain.

Here we are-my last Nursing mamas thread DD is going on 7 days weaned now and now I don't know if my sore breasts are due to drying up or preg symptom?? We were only nursing 1x per day so don't know what to think about that.
I swear, those preg tests call your name to pee on a stick don't they!!: I was only 9dpo yesterday and on day 2 of nausea so could not resist even though I kept telling myself I should not waste this so early- well no surprise BFN. I berated myself afterwards.
Normally I would be very positive with the nausea symptom but I'm still spotting-very light-but there none the less-so I can't be super optimistic. This has happened a lot in the last 12 cycles and my dr can't seem to figure out why and it's very frustrating-I'm on the progesterone supplements still...
So we'll wait a few more days (Sun is my b-day-what a great present??) and see what happens but I'm only slighty hopeful.
Take care everyone!

Happy almost-birthday, Ann! I hope testing goes well!!! Please keep us updated.

Brandi, please update my info--14.5 mo dd.

Some exciting news here: I was having ovulation-type cramps and thought I'd use one of my cheap OPKs and sure enough there was a line! Not a positive (ie dark as control) line, but at least that indicates *something* is happening! Yay for cheap tests! I even used a second one to check I was so excited. I'm hoping it means that I was coming down from a pre-o LH spike and that the pains really were o pains. So....now I'm hoping for a ++ (how cool would that be!) or at least for my first ppaf!!

More good news is that dd is trying harder to eat solids, which is a huge relief for many reasons.

Welcome Mel!

Ann such a bittersweet time. We will miss you. Thinking of you. You can stick around anyway you know! Happy Birthday on Sunday! BFP SOON!

NWmama-sounds great!

I am 7 dpo and starting to get a little anxious, another week to go! Had some o-like pains today: All well, just brushing it off! I WILL NOT get too obsessed! (well maybe just a little )

I may not get too much computer time this weekend so if I miss any requests, don't think you are being ignored, I will catch up Monday!

Love, Brandi
