Just to update on the current post, I currently have a 19mo daughter and I am trying to catch my first PP egg.  I have not got my cycle back, but we're working on night weaning in hopes of kickstarting my cycles.  I had some indications that I may have ovulated, but I haven't been temping or anything, so it is solely based on CM.  We're doing what we can, but I've taken tests periodically and I am still waiting for a BFP.  I'd also welcome CD1.  We shall see.  I've definitely had some crampiness going on, so I feel like something is going on.  Even if it is just my hormones gearing up, I'm happy for it.

Thank you Veritas Vitae for hosting the thread. 

 

Just wanted to update that I got bfp last week. I'm still nursing my almost 3 year old a few times a day. I night weaned her last cycle and ovulated on CD 15. Prior to that I was ovulating (if at all) very late (cycles were over 35 days since first ppaf). 

 

I have no idea whether or not to continue nursing, or nurse more or less, etc. 

 

Good luck to everyone!!

Congratulations, girlspn! I'm so happy for you!  I have updated the post.

 

I took a test this morning and got yet another BFN, so hopefully I get my period soon.

Hurray!!!  Congrats girlspn.  Glad you didn't have to wean all the way.

 

I have been feeling nauseas for the past 5-6 days and have been testing almost daily and still BFN.  I dont know what else it could be.  Maybe gearing up to ovulate?  I had this a few months ago too and it ended up being nothing I guess.

Ugh! Ladies I am having the most frustrating cycle right now! I am 10DPO and still spotting! I have a decent amount of old brown with a bit of beet red mixed in and clotty stuff going on but no full bleed. This is so bizarre for me. Perhaps it's a sign of my LP trying to stabilize since I've cut way back on nursing. I have no idea. All I know is I continue to have this, feel like I am pregnant and BFN. I spotted only the teensiest bit with my son. I am very convinced AF is on her way and I just wish she would do her thing already and stop confusing me and giving me tiny twinges of false hope. She is such a witch. This is my third say of spotting and normally i spot no more than 2 days. its also the first time i have made it to 10DPO without full AF. Has anyone else experienced this?

Well I haven't been following along for awhile but I got a BFP two days ago! My EDD is dec 17th. I'm still nursing my 18 month old but going to start cutting back and hopefully have him weaned before the baby comes! He will be 2 when the baby comes and I wanted to breastfeed him until 2 so it's perfect timing! I have no desire to tandem feed though!

Hi! smile.gif I'm nursing my toddler, she'll be 3 in July. I recently miscarried, then we took a break for the following cycle, and now I am in the 2ww for this cycle. I'm 5 dpo today.

Nice to meet you all! smile.gif Happy Easter!

Welcome, lmevans, I have updated the role call.  I will be hoping you get a BFP soon, and I'm so sorry about your miscarriage.  A friend of mine from my daughter's DDC recently went through the same ordeal, and I know it was just so, so hard.  Hugs, mama.

 

I'm absolutely ecstatic about getting my period, probably for the first time ever.  I had so many emotions and was feeling so dissatisfied the day before, and I didn't understand why I was so weepy, and then lo and behold: CD1!

Hi all! I'm new here and will hopefully be taking a laid back approach to TTC and am waiting to catch the first PP egg. We'll see how this plan goes. We went through infertility with our LO so I'm nervous that we'll have a similar experience this time. Anyway, my LO is 14 months old and nursing.

Our rainbow1284.gif is due 02/22/2013!

So much has gone down this past week! Congrats to all the BFP and PPAF! Moving on to the next stage in this never ending waiting game!! After gearing up for months I got my first PPAF when my son was 13 months! He is now 16 months and we are on our second cycle! Got the timing right this time, in my TWW now- 8 DPO and counting. Feeling sick today, I keep saying it better be a baby!! We fell pregnant first try with my son, discouraged that we had to try twice.. (I know, I'm spoiled!) for those waiting for that egg, my little one nurses q2 hours day and night yet my cycles are pretty normal now! Hang in there!

Chloe'sMama and WarriorCandy, I just wanted to see how things were going with you.  The whole month before I finally got my cycle back I was having crazy cramping and nausea, I was SURE I must be pregnant despite getting BFN after BFN.

 

Welcome to lovelylittle and motherofthewolf, I have updated the role call.  I'm hoping for a BFP for you, motherofthewolf. And lovelylittle, we did the (attempted) relaxed approach on waiting for that first PP egg, but I must admit, after 6 months, I was starting to get a little twitchy about it. Good luck to you!

CD 9 over here and after high hopes last cycle and throwing the kitchen sink at trying I am planning to take it very easy this cycle which is cycle 5. My last cycle I was so excited to ovulate on CD15 like I did before having my son and nursing. I assumed I would get pregnant. I was using vitex, acupuncture, cut caffeine, did yoga. Well despite the better ovulation I started spotting at 6DPO and off and on till I got AF at 11DPI. I think spotting means I can't count that as a longer LP. So now I'm just doing what I want for this cycle. No stress and as much coffee as I want etc. down to nursing once a night but not gonna stress the duration of those sessions like I was. I will time out BD this month around ovulation but wot stress if we need to skip a day. I'm pooped and need a hull cycle. Then perhaps for the next two I will get serious again. I'll update you. We shall see. Good luck all! Hope to see some more BFPs on here!

Has anyone else experienced this? My lo still nurse at night from every 3 hrs and some nights she'll sleep 6-7 hours. Would love to have my babies close together! Anyone else experience this?!

Wanted to welcome all the new mamas. I hope your stay is short.

Me: Still waiting for AF to show up. DH is ready to get the big V, so I probably shouldn't hang out here, but I am still hoping he will change his mind.

I'm using internet cheapies, and the lines are SO light. When they dry, they're even lighter. :/ Today is 11 dpo, and I had faint lines yesterday too, but was in denial because they were *SO* light.

Here's the darkest (when wet, pic at 5 mins) test from today.

Ugh guys. Big temp drop and AF this morning. I can't take this waiting and waiting. I'm being spoiled and selfish, this I know. Some people wait years and years. I already have a baby. It's not that I'm ungrateful.. I just wanted my children close in age. My cycles are so long, waiting another 40 days just seems daunting and unfair. Plus AF makes me extra pouty. I just want to stomp my feet and storm away.

I am thinking of doing as warriorcandy did. I haven't completely cut out caffeine or alcohol or hot yoga or my occasional artificially flavored junk. Maybe I should. Our timing was spot on. I can't help but critique my entire lifestyle. I was much more of a stickler when ttc my son, and we got pregnant the first try. I'm even thinking something happened during birth that could effect my chances now. I'm such a mess.. It's only been two PP cycles. Get a grip, girl!

Ok now that that's semi out of my system.. Here we go again. CD 1. Waiting to ovulate. (around CD 28.. 😔) Congrats on the BFPs! Share some with me, will ya?

Hey Can I join?? I am not officially TTC yet, waiting until August (or at least May :) ) but decided spontaneously to try this cycle as things looked good to sway for a girl. Only one BD so we'll see. I am half hoping it doesn't work because I know I'll feel guilt over losing my milk too soon (I have a 13 mo DS) and half hoping it does work so that I can stop thinking about TTC 24/7--I am tired of myself! Since getting my PPAF at 9 mo PP, my hormones have been less than polite about wanting me to TTC. LOL. And if it doesn't work, I might try to skip a few cycles to at least July. IDK, confused about what to do. Anyway, I am on 3 DPO.
