I’ve lurked on MDC for a while now, but this is my first time writing in. We’re ttc #2 but have had 3 unsuccessful cycles so far. Naturally I’m second-guessing everything I’m doing right now trying to figure out if that’s why we’re unsuccessful. I’m sure my question has been asked and answered many times, but I haven’t been able to find the answer myself. I thought you ladies would have some thoughts. If this isn’t the appropriate place to ask, please let me know where would be.
Before DD was born, I never thought I’d nurse, but I promised dp I’d at least try for 3 months. Now at 25 months, dd is still nursing. I love it and dd loves it. We’re down to 3-5 times a day (morning wake-up, before nap, before bed, and maybe 1-2 more times during the day if she needs comforting). AF returned 15 months pp and has been very regular (28-29 days) for at least 7 months now. Antral follicle count is fine (>15). Ultrasounds have shown that I get a mature follicle, uterine lining is fine, and my luteal phase is long enough (14 days). I’m sure I’m O’ing (prog. is normal, temp rises).
I know 3 months isn’t a long time trying, but dd set the bar high (conceived the first try). Like with dd, we’re doing IUI, same frozen donor sperm, using OPKs and monitor. The only real difference now is I’m nursing, and I’m 37.
So, I’m left wondering: since I know I’m ovulating, could bf’ing my dd be preventing implantation?
