Nursing mamas getting pregnant in October - Page 2

post #21 of 229
Can I join too? Madison still nurses 3-4 times a day during the week and more on weekends. Today is cd1 :cry: I didn't even get to contemplate using an evil hpt. Oh well. This will be our second official cycle ttc but we haven't used anythign in well over two years and nothing has happened.

I've been charting religeously for over a year but have taken the last couple of months off. I'll probably take a couple more off charting so I don't get too obsessive and then begin again. I'm fairly comfortable reading the fertility signals without the corresponding temp. It makes calcuating O a little tricky but it's so much easier mentally at the end of teh 2ww.

My best to every ttc this month!

Hello all!

Our computer died, so I haven't been able to log on all week. Ugh! But I wanted to update:

Please move me to the "Hoping for a BFP" list, with ds 11 months.. I am "cautiously optimistic" this month. We have been bd'ing *a lot*, and I'm thinking we probably caught the egg this time. I feel wretched, and have had two new "symptoms" that I've only seen before when I was pregnant with ds: 1)my skin is so greasy you could fry chicken on it. (I usually don't have acne, and didn't as a teenager, but now I've got so many zits I can't pass for 18 anymore. Ick!) And 2)I'm kinda "backed up" (normally I'm "moving" in the opposite direction this time of my cycle). I'm also feeling kind of queasy, but that could be from anything.

I'm going to wait until I'm late poas, because I only have one test and if I buy more I'll want to test earlier (like today!) Today is (I think) cd 14 for me, and I believe that I am 8 dpo (short cycle, but it would be more in keeping with my pre-ds cycles, which were 18-20 days long). So next week at the earliest, assuming I don't start tossing my cookies before then .
Good luck to all!

Hi, Nursing Mamas! I thought I'd pop in and spread some baby dust to you all. May each of you come up positives real soon!

Wouldn't it be great to put this thread out of business?!!? We could just have reunion threads over on the pregnancy board!

Also, I still have an active Fertility Friend account. I paid the $$$ for full usage. Since this is our last child, I'd like to pass it on to one of you all. If you're interested in my account, just PM me. And, I hope it gives good luck to the recipient. Any "Catching the First PP egg" mamas might want it just to check out my charts. I never did get a PP period before getting pregnant.

Love, Peace & Babies growing healthy in your wombs!

Edited: because I chose the wrong :- for my blessing. YIKES!

Brandi, thanks for getting the October thread kickin'. I hope everyone has good luck this month. This is my favorite month of the year and also my birthday month. I am on cd37. My last cycle was 39 days, and my two previous were 57 and 51. They seem to be getting shorter each time, but I'm waiting til Monday to test. Dh is in Belgium on business and I would love to greet him with a when he gets home on Monday night!

Well, here I am, declaring myself ready to TTC again and I have absolutely NO signs that I am going to o. I am on cd21. I usually o around cd17 or cd18. The latest since I started charting 7-8 months ago was cd21. Just a little cm, temps way low. Anyone experience an anovulatory cycle while charting?

Doodlebugsmom, Brandi, eilonwy, I hope you get that BFP! We need to start off the month with some graduates!
post #30 of 229
keri, i will typically have one to two anov cycles a year. that's one of the reasons why i'm glad i chart so i don't freak out thinking i am pg when i just o'd late or not at all LOL!

wishing you the best!

Just wanted to let you all know, as I know some of you know my situation and have been sending me good thoughts through the last few months..............Dh's mom passed away Saturday night. We were with her. I am so tired and sad and there is so much to do. We are cleaning out her house and also getting ready to move ourselves in a few weeks. The thoughts of pregnancy are so far from my mind, though dh and I do hope that we conceived this month so badly. It would be such a nice confirmation that life heals and goes on. I must go get some sleep, I have an early day tomorrow and it is already morning! I will check in when I can. I am so glad I have this community to share with.
thank you ladies-
Brandi

Howdy doody mamas!~ I kind of forgot about this forum

I am Teresa still nursing ny now 31 month old DD Kailey. We have been off and on TTC since Nov 2001, still nothing. We really put an effort into TTC in September (should have Oed during the wee of the 23rd) so well see what happens.

Wait? Or was that August that we TTC? I cant remember, but I should know something soon

Child of the moon~

Just caught your post at the end here. I am so sorry for your loss and am sending warm comforting hugs for you and your DH. Get some rest and take the next few days and weeks slowly. Allow yourselves to grieve and to be comforted.

Much love,
Teresa

Brandi - , take care of yourself and your dh...

Thank you for starting this thread.

I've been watching for it, but apparently in the Infertility boards, not the TTC boards. : Duh.

I'm on cd, um, let me look... cd16. Today has been a rather uncomfortably moist and ewcmucusy day (sorry... but ever get that? like, did I pee my pants or what?? )

So, I anticipate O'ing soon... I used to O like cd19, but last time it was cd23. I'm just hoping my lp is longer than last time!

Okay, I am so confused. Can I vent?

I am not sure what's going on with me. Like I said, dd is 18 months and my cycles started back at 16 months or so.. They were 35 days apart, and then 30 days apart.. now I am on CD 36 I think and negative pregnancy test, and no period. On CD 20 I had light spotting and some cramping for a few days. Then this morning I took a cheap-o Dollar Tree test.. it was negative after a few minutes so I put it away, and came back later and there was a faint line. I was so excited, I sent DH to the store and squeezed out a little pee for an EPT.. and it was negative. I don't know what's going on. What was that spotting? Where is AF? My temps have been sort of high.. 98.4-98.6. Does cosleeping and nursing affect my temps? I really don't have any idea what's going on here. I have 3 kids. Before my first, a son, and after my son, I had regular 30 day cycles. Then I had a miscarriage, and my cycles started getting long.. like up to 40 days.. for 9 months until I finally got pg with my first daughter.. (#1 and #2 are 3 years apart) then while nursing my first daughter, I got pregnant with my second daughter.. no period between them (at 5 1/2 months postpartum).. and now #3 is my 18 month old. Maybe my cycles are going to be extra long again? What the heck is going on with me!!!

We don't have insurance, so going to the doctor is really not an option right now. I wish I just knew what was going on with my body! I really miss having regular, reliable 30 day cycles!! I am only 23 years old!

Anyway thanks for listening to me vent. My husband just doesn't understand.

Mel
