Hi everyone!

I'm leaving early tomorrow for a week with family. When I get back, I fully expect to see some BFPs around here - so get on it, OK Mamas?

Thanks for hosting, risen_joy!

Hello! After much talking and soul searching, Dh and I have officially decided to try for a third baby. AF came yesterday, so I'm on CD 2 right now.

Risen_joy, would you please put me in the waiting to O list? I don't know if you remember me, but we were both ttc our second babies in the Nursing Mamas threads two and a half years ago. And here we are again! It must bring some kind of luck.

Good luck to everyone!

Please move me to TWW. I just noticed that June was a particularly slow month for us nursing moms, so we're owed some back-pay, so to speak. That's good news!

Thanks, risen_joy for the thread.

please put me in waiting to o

i figured i might as well join the thread. dd is 14 mos, still nurses like crazy (nak'ing right now). i got my iud pulled two weeks ago, got what seemed to be my 1st ppaf the next day, but it only lasted 3 days. i'm charting, and am on cd 14, but i'm not sure when i'll o. no indication i will, other than some left ovary pain a few days ago. no ewcm, but cervix is higher and slightly open, but still semi firm. thes 1st pp and post iud cycle is sure strange

I'd like to be added to the list as waiting for the first pp egg

I've been feeling aweful the past week, so I thought maybe we caught it but alas the test was -. Could anyone give me info about vitex and nursing? I used it when ttc ds but have heard it increases prolactin which would seem contradictory to what I'm wanting to do.

Thanks!

I'm taking vitex for the second time. I tried it in December, taking 30 drops of tincture three times a day. It seemed to delay my ovulation so I stopped after a couple of weeks.(although looking back, it just might have been my wacky PP cycles.)

This time, I have been taking it for about 6 weeks. I've only been taking 30 drops once a day. This last cycle, I o'd on cd 19. My earliest since AF returned had been cd30 and the latest was like cd45. I'm currently on cd14 and getting signs of impending O.

HTH!

From what I've read, in small doses Vitex will increase prolactin and increase your milk supply. In larger doses Vitex will help balance your fertility and could decrease your milk supply. Most everything says it takes 2-4 months to gradually start working. HTH!

Still waiting for o and I'm at CD28. Only have had one PPAF and the one o before it so far. I think my cycle is all screwy because I was sick (food poisoning ) and then DD has been up more often the past week and refuses to go back to sleep unless she is nursing. She's working on her eye teeth (ouch!) so I've been accommodating even though we did nightwean a couple months ago.

I'd like to start temping but whenever I try, I either wake DD up with all the beeping or she pulls the thermometer out of my mouth.

How do you temp with a cosleeping toddler? Any suggestions? Or do I just skip the temping for now and keep going with the OPKs and charting cf?

Good luck to everyone in July! I agree, June looks pretty sad in the list, hopefully July will make up for it!

Ugh I forgot to temp when resting this morning. So I have to throw out today's temp, right? I tempted right after I got out of bed and went into the bathroom. But it was at 98.6 and it's been around 98.1 or 98.2 the past few days. Does getting out of bed and walking a few steps really raise my body temp that much?

Hey everyone! Hope we have a more successful month this go-round. Thanks risen joy for hosting the thread this month!

AFM: 14dpo (my longest LP has been 13 days) and a BFN today on a $ Tree test. I have been cramping since 10dpo, and fully expected AF to show today, so with that BFN, I'm almost positive that she'll show any minute now.

thanks for all the info on vitex! Is it used to start ppaf for the first time?

I started taking a homemade infusion of rrleaf and red clover leaf today. Hoping the estrogen action of the red clover will help.

I haven't been around in a while, but we are still TTC while nursing. I am 24 months PP and no AF yet. I am getting more and more worried that I am one of those few mothers that have to wean to O. But I think I may have just O'd. I am crossing my fingers I did. :

Any one else in my boat? Any one not get AF back until after 12 months, after 18 months, after 24 months, or even longer?

I didn't get AF back until 19.5 months PP. We nightweaned pretty much cold turkey (which was shockingly easy) and I ovulated 3 weeks later. Five days after that I got my first PPAF. I am sure that if we had not nightweaned I still would not have had my PPAF.

Of course now we are back to nursing a few times a night, due to some surgery, teething and colds.

I didn't get AF back until 26 months and now I've had about 4 cycles and just trying to figure it out!

any quick links on these questions...?

I had a chemical pregnancy a few weeks ago, am still bleeding now (5 days). Should I wait a month before trying again? Am I likely to have a normal cycle when this bleeding stops?

And, I've got a ton of dried vitex berries. How can I know how much to take? All the Googling I did before measures it in ways I don't understand.

Thanks if any of you have any suggestions for me.

Here's for loads of fertility for all nursing mamas ttc everywhere!

I'm waaay late updating (cross country move, yuck! but i'm glad i'm here, finally..) but looks like I'm back to waiting to catch first pp egg. Booo!! No bfp and no af. So I guess I was wrong about ovulating. Ahh well. I have had a feeling since, eh, september or so, that July would be the month. Come on, ovaries, wake up!!
