WTH(eck) today Charlotte turned 2mos(and dd turned2) and I wake up to a period How can this be? I am so bummed!!! I need to BF dd until she is 2 due to her kidney defect and we don't use BC. I can't get pregnant for at least another 1 1/2 years. I always seem to get pregnant after only 2 cycles. SHe is just too young!! I am still not adjusting to 3, 3 and under. She i so fussy and crys non stop. I just found out she is allergic to mlk so I am off dairy and its torture! I also lost my voice today. I just want to cry!

Jennifer, SAHM to my little man 5 1/2 and my VBAC sweetie pie girls 4 1/2, 2 1/2 and 6mos.

I hear you about 3 under 3 (well, my oldest turned 3 two weeks ago, but still...) I also got my period back at 4 weeks with ds1 and 8 weeks with ds2. So far nothing, but we're being extra-careful about dtd.

Is there no possibility to use bc even for a med issue? Hang in there, mama.

I got mine. 6w3d, and tandem nursing. I want more babies, but not yet!!!

I didn't get it with Carter till 11 months postpartum, and didn't ovulate until 14 months postpartum.

This sucks, sorry Jennifer. The dairy thing sucks, too, but you can do it! Let me know if you need recipes or suggestions.

I noticed some ewcm a couple days ago and felt utterly crestfallen. I'm not sure exactly if I ovulated, but I did feel a little crampy down in the ovaries, which if I recall correctly usually happens to me right around ovulation. *sigh* I didn't get my period back until my son was a year, and my midwife says fertility usually follows your own pattern, but reading this thread does not reassure me.

One of my friends has been exclusively breastfeeding after each of her kids (including a set of twins) and ALWAYS gets AF back at two months. Some women just do.

I'm a lucky one I guess, last time it was 20m (this kid doesn't nurse so much as the last one did though, so I'm guessing it'll be sooner...)

I got mine at 7 weeks PP and I EBF on demand (every 1.5 to 2 hrs). I'm still bitter about that. DD sleeps on my belly most nights, so lots of skin to skin and I wear her half the day. It's NOT fair!

Add me to the AF club, I just assumed that I wouldn't get it back until after we were done nursing (like my Mom - well over a year), but alas that wasn't meant to be . 6.5 weeks here and while I'd love at least 1 or 3 more, now is not the time.

I noticed some EWCM and that Kiefer was a little fussy and sensed it was coming back even with no pacifier, nursing on demand, and no bottles (didn't even pump until I got my period and I noticed a supply drop and I only did that twice as my supply rapidly increased after a few days - milks in the freezer). I've got some Mother's Milk tea to take now and I'm doing the cal mag pills, any other suggestions - should I pump before AF? Last time I just pretty much snuggled with him topless and let him pop on and off for a couple of days and that worked.

so glad I am not alone! got mine back almost at exactly 6 weeks (5w6d) and I fairly certain I O'd 2-3 days ago . . .DH and I haven't DTD because we were wanting to wait the 6 weeks (I had a c-section) and then I go and get AF, and them I'm ovulating . . . don't want hormonal bc so may need to do condoms until cycles get sorted out and I can chart again. I was so hoping to not have any periods while EBF'ing, but he doesn't really eat around the clock, and I am not about to force him if he's willing to let me get 5-6 hours sleep!

Wow I so did NOT want to be here, DS is only 9 weeks tomorrow! But pretty sure AF is coming back. Had some light blood on tp this afternoon, put a pad on and only a small drop of light blood at last check. But I feel crampy. I can't believe this could even really be happening with as much as this baby nurses (on avg. every 2 hrs around the clock), all the skin-to-skin contact and the near-constant baby wearing thanks to his wicked reflux. C-boy didn't nurse quite this much and I wore him far less and AF still stayed away for 14 months so WTH is with this 9 weeks crap?!? I'm completely and utterly alone, so I have no fear of getting pregnant, but come ON, do I not have ENOUGH to deal with right now????

...ooO*Ooo*ooO*Ooo...
