Any mamas out there who have gotten pregnant again while exclusively breastfeeding & before your period returned? If so, how many months old was your baby? Were you trying to conceive? And how did you realize you were pregnant?

Hi-
I got pregnant with my second child while exclusively breastfeeding. My first child was almost 9 months at the time. My period had returned by then. My period always returns within 4 months of having a baby, and I always exclusively breastfeed!

I had some bleeding right around a year PP. Not sure if I ovulated or not. We started trying shortly after and I began charting to find that I wasn't ovulating. I began taking Vitex liquid 2 droppers full 3x a day. I did this for about 17 days, all while charting, and I actually O'ed, and subsequently became pregnant. My DD was then 15 months old. I am now due in July! HTH.

Amy, mommy to Ava, 6, Gavin, 4, Lila, 2, and Baby #4 due in early November! joy.gif
