I'm glad there is such a thread out there.

It sucked. Mothering is a blessing to all of us!

Anyhoo, I'm just so glad for the thread for nursing TTC moms. How very cool!

I'm still nursing both my 28 and 15 mo olds and TTC#3. I am sure I O'd now and am going to test tomorrow with FMU at 9dpo to see what I see. I'm very excited!!

I do FEEL preggo which is cool. I hope that I am and look foward to seeing more BFPs on here!!

TTYL,

The Dollar Tree tests are supposed to be very sensitive and accurate according to peeonastick. Well, it's too late for me to order any and I'm not paying the price of them from like CVS.

Hello everyone
I'm getting close to POAS time now! Hopefully I will be on here more often, I miss chatting with all you ladies!
I am 7DPO now, and I've been feeling hungry... for banana peppers and jalapenos.. on a toasted Subway sandwich.. mmmmmmmmmmm so hungry lol!
And I'm peeing constantly...
But, that's about it. Oh yeah, and I caught the honey as it was falling out of the cupboard... which is amazing! I am SUCH a klutz, except for when I'm pregnant, so I'm taking it as a good sign lol.
to all!!!!
and to those who are in the TTW

I think I am ready to move to waiting for 1st pp egg!

dd is approaching the age that I got preggers with her that ds was. She was conceived as a 1st pp egg.
I am nervous we are still bfing but I dont feel the need to PUSh it as much as I did last time (Vitex etc)
DH has been getting the baby fever and my sil and best friend delivered babies this week so I think it has hit us really hard...
thanks mamas!

Denise, Mama to DS1 (7) and DD1 (5) and new baby due June 2012!

GL catching that first egg bodhicitta3.

hannybanany & TrustingOurBodies I'll be 9 dpo tomorrow too and you two are making me want to test. I keep going back and forth. Dh thinks I'm crazy for even considering testing. I know if it's negative, I'll be disappointed and around family who may be asking when we're going to have another. I think I'm going to try to hold out til New Year's Eve (17dpo) to test. IDK.

Good luck this morning! :

AFM, I think I am finally about to O. I had a false start (EWCM) earlier in the month, but I'm CD20 now, and that is about when I used to O before DD. This will be my second PP O. We DTD last night, and I think we'll try again tonight.

I'm trying not to get my hopes up too much, this is just the second month we've been able to try. Last month my LP was only like 7 days, but it was my first PPAF, so I'm hoping that that had something to do with it.

to all!

It's probably a good idea to wait. Good luck holding out that long


I tested this morning Oh well... Despite what my chart says I am only 9DPO, so I guess it's still pretty early.

TrustingOurBodies, how did it go for you this morning??

...MY TEMP WAS EVEN LOWER THAN YESTERDAY'S AND CLOSE TO MY COVERLINE, MY HPT WAS ON TOP OF WHICH I WIPED AND AF SHOWED HER UGLY FACE!

It's only 9dpo!! My normal LP is 12-13dpo. So I'm surprised and depressed all at the same time.

I really think my temp dip at 4dpo could be implantation dip and that I did have a good 5 days after that but 9 is still very short.

I plan to make some diet changes and nutritional supplements to be even healthier next cycle to make sure my progesterone isn't the problem.

Ugh!

I'm out!

Move me to waiting to O - again!

Thanks....someone at FF pointed out it could be implantation bleeding but I don't think so. I know some bleed red blood and still get a BFP but I've been preggo twice and never have I a) had implantation bleeding or b) when I had spotting around time of AF it was pink/brown NOT red. Besides, I'm crampy and just don't want to cling to something I really don't feel is possible for me. I do think I'm out.

Thanks for the hug!

Thanks and thanks!! I am so excited esp after the heartbreak of the early m/c last month.
My EDD is the 28th but I was 11 days past due with ds so I may be Sept - we'll see.

Why is it always the busiest times of the month that I near ovulation? And how do the kids know to stay up really late the nights we want to DTD?

Well, I'm getting excited at least that it's time to try again! I hope and pray that this is the month! I probably won't O until the 28th but I'll start OPKs tomorrow.

Then there's the dreaded 2WW! I'm always so hopeful and then surprised and crushed when I get BFNs. Please let this cyce be different!

It's good to read other people's stories and know that its "normal" to ride this emotional rollercoaster! Good luck to you all! I hope to read about a lot of BFPs!

Mom to 5 amazing kids! (DS8, DS7, DD4, DD2 and DS0)

Hey nursing mamas....

Getting prolactin levels tested after christmas...Can anyone tell me if DS is nursing 3-4 times a day, and I still seem to have lots of milk, does this mean my levels are probably too high?

I hate the thought that I'll HAVE to wean before conceiving DC#2.:
Any advice? or just some cheer?

congratulations, honeybee!!!!

We're going to be leaving for our Christmas vacation tomorrow morning, so I'll probably be off the board until Wednesday. Hope there are lots of BFPs when I get back!
