I was not sure where to post this. But I am thinking I might (BIG might! ) be pregnat. So I was going to do a EPT and got to thinking, before I spend the money on this thing, "Will it work" I have yet to get pregnant while I was still nursing. So I am not sure how "right on" they are when you are nursing. You know with the hormones and all.

ALSO!!! I haven't got a period yet! ds#2 is almost 16 months old! With the other two I had one about the time they where a year old. WEIRD!

I guess that is all!

The hormones secreted from nursing will not effect your preg. test. hcG (HgC?) whatever, is only there when a little baby is inside growing.

The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it.  We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.

I was still nursing DD1 at 14 months when I had a positive test for DD2. AF came back at 12 months for her. DD2 is 19 months old and no sign of AF. I took a EPT a few weeks ago and it was negative.

Are you doing a lot of night nursing? That could make a difference in your period not returning yet. I'm thinking that is why mine has not returned yet either - DD2 nurses a lot more at night than DD1 did.

Good luck on your test.
