How old was your nursling when you got a BFP?

DS was 17.5 mos

 

How often were you nursing?

Mainly 2x, awakening and bedtime.  When I was alone with him on weekends it was before naps too.  I was making a concerted effort to refuse and redirect though.

 

How many DPO did you get a BFP?  Early symptoms?

I didn't test early according to LMP, according to FF, i was 10DPO.  At that point, I had been feeling nausea for a week, so I think FF was wrong on the Odate.  But you know temping when BF and having a baby with unpredictable wakings is next to impossible!  chart: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/267e85
 

Did you do anything to sustain your pregnancy (ie progesterone cream, primrose oil B6, etc)
No

 

Were your breasts or nipples sore before or after your BFP?
i didn't notice anything until after I tested, i definitely accuse DS of biting me more often than he probably is.  it hurts now.

 

Did your nursling cut down during your pregnancy?
Dunno, he is has been sick the whole time so far, so he has been comfort nursing more often.  He is hungrier and less satisfied when nursing now - always looking for the other BB, or the other day asking me for 'water' when he was done nursing!

How old is/was your nursling when you got a BFP? 25+ months

How often were you nursing when you conceived and implanted? Frequently - 4-8 times during the day & 6-12 times during the night. 

Edited to Add: During the 2 days following ovulation, DS didn't nurse all day one day (excluding nights) and only nurse one time the following day (again excluding nighttime nursing) as we were traveling by car all day

How many dpo did you get a BFP? Did you have any early symptoms? 9 DPO had hint of positive. Clear + at 10 DPO; Craving high protein, aversions to sugar, frequent urination, sleeping longer

Did you do anything to sustain your pregnancy (ie progesterone cream, primrose oil B6, etc)? Just 4 weeks now. Taking Rainbow Light Prenatal with special pregnancy herbal blends. 

Were your breasts or nipples sore before or after your BFP? Very sensitive nipples as well as irritated by LO touching my breasts.

Did your nursling cut down during your pregnancy? He's already sleeping longer stretches at night and more wiling to fall back to sleep without nursing. Still nursing frequently but cutting back a bit

I posted once already in regards to my dec09/Jan10 pregnancy that ended in a miscarriage. I'm pregnant again (due 2/6/2012) so here goes!!

 

How old is/was your nursling when you got a BFP?

18 months, (had m/c when he was 14mo). i got AF back at 9wks even though we nurse on demand and he never ever took a bottle.

 

How often were you nursing when you conceived and implanted?

3-4 times a day and 3-4 times at night. Once I found out i did start to offer him more liquids during the day that weren't me!

 

How many dpo did you get a BFP? Did you have any early symptoms?

11dpo in the pm was a faint line (possible evap.). 12dpo was clear!!

 

Did you do anything to sustain your pregnancy (ie progesterone cream, primrose oil B6, etc)

No nothing.

 

Were your breasts or nipples sore before or after your BFP?

Not really at all yet (6wks) but every now and again I can feel that they are just a little more sensitive. Don't hurt but I feel the BFing more.

 

Did your nursling cut down during your pregnancy?

I've started to distract him and offer other liquids when he is nursing strictly for comfort. mainly because I m/c'd in Jan and until i see a heartbeat I'm scared.

How often were you nursing when you conceived and implanted?  4-6 times a day.

 

How many dpo did you get a BFP? Did you have any early symptoms? 9 dpo.  I had implantation bleeding (a super light pink streak on the toilet paper at 7 dpo).  I also had sensitive nipples and waves of exhaustion.  And, oily skin and pimples!

 

Did you do anything to sustain your pregnancy (ie progesterone cream, primrose oil B6, etc) no

 

Were your breasts or nipples sore before or after your BFP? My nipples felt very sensitive but weren't sore before the BFP.  They actually seem less sensitive now (4.5 weeks pregnant) but I'm sure the worst is still to come...

 

Did your nursling cut down during your pregnancy? So far no change but it's very early.

How old is/was your nursling when you got a BFP? 

Carter (DS1) was 15.5 months old, Holden was almost 14 months.

How often were you nursing when you conceived and implanted?

Both times I conceived, I was nursing each one on-demand.  Carter ate very little in terms of solids when we conceived Holden, and Holden was nursing exclusively when we conceived Harper.  I had just finished nursing Carter 1 month before we conceived Harper (I was tandem nursing).  

How many dpo did you get a BFP? Did you have any early symptoms?

I was 10 dpo with Holden and 27 (!) dpo with Harper.  I tested at 6 dpo with Harper though, and was so so disappointed and off, but attributed to some major life changes.  

Did you do anything to sustain your pregnancy (ie progesterone cream, primrose oil B6, etc)

Nope!

Were your breasts or nipples sore before or after your BFP?

Yes, each time they have been sore, but not until 7 weeks or so.

Did your nursling cut down during your pregnancy?

Yes, both boys cut down.  Both nightweaned themselves to, during the pregnancies.
