are you not nursing at least every 4 hours? if so, you are safe until baby is 6 months old.

be advised IUDs can suppress prolactin production, which can cause your milk supply to decrease. i know several women who have had major problems with this.

i believe she was pumping because her first baby was a premie, right? pumping doesn't count. and you have to be sure you are nursing every hours hours or less around the clock. no bottles.

I thought you could have sex as soon as you are done bleeding??? We've already done it but its been 5 weeks and it was very very gently, I have lots of scar tissue that needs to be broken up, so things are a bit tight right now.

Yeah, the safe for 6 months thing doesn't apply to everyone, especially if bottles, pacificers or pumping are involved.

i'd kill DH if he even LOOKED at me like that any time soon i guess that's my body's way of making sure there's no more twins in my immediate future though

full time, single, slightly soggy WOHM to Juliet (12.31.2004 @ 36w5d) and Willow & Adam (2.22.2007 @ 39w5d, HBAC transfer) and... expecting my little womb warrior Eowyn Susanne in September

I wish I felt that way as it would get dh off my back about it. : He has been driving me nuts for the past week and a half. I wish that I could make him understand that it is the last thing on my mind.

I think I have a UTI now. : At least it feels like I do. I made DH go get me cranberry juice and I'm drinking that and lots of water. That worked the last time.

I am definitely ready, but not ready in the same way Our schedules just don't mesh well since DH works rotating graveyards. How we managed to get pregnant amazes me sometimes:
I need to start temping again also...i've been slacking in that area big time.

A doula who married a cop & became a mama to 3 boys: G 12/22/00, my rainbow baby B 2/2/07 and L 2/10/10 my CBA2V baby, waiting for my little caboose late February 2013 & always remembering my two angels 2006 & 2012.

I'm ready, but dh is saying no way unitl I agree to a vasactomy. Which I never will, so I pray her gives in! This is so weird though, I never wanted it until my others were at least 14 months! DD is not even 3 weeks!
