We use(d) the Billings method of Natural Family Planning and were trying not to conceive for the longest time. That is, until this past month when I got a little lazy in my charting. Anyway, there's a good chance that I'm pregnant but I'm not feeling the early signs like I did when I was first pregnant with my now, 17 month old son and with the chemical pregnancy I had the month before he was conceived. (extreme fatigue, breast tenderness...) The only symptom I may have is very, very, slight nausea but I'm not sure if it's just psychosomatic because I realize now that I want another baby.

DS nurses at least 4 times during the day and 3 times at night. Could his extended nursing be a factor in my not having any symptoms? AF is due anytime this weekend, but like most women I'm impatient and I'd like to know if there's a chance.

Could be. You could test with a first respose early test today. I got a + 4 or maybe 5 days before my period was due with FRER.

1. Anything's possible.

2. No two pregnancies are the same.

3. Ah, go ahead and test

Wow! Congrats, mama.

Peaceful mama to three blissfully-birthed and incredible small people: dd10, dd7 and ds5. Always awed and so thankful to be a midwife.
