I have a 5 y.o. DD and a 3 month old DS, and we're considering a vasectomy for DH, because we always agreed that we only wanted 2 children.<br><br>
Meanwhile, when we DTD, he pulls out (although I got pg from him before with this less-than-reliable method). With DD, I didn't get AF back for about 16 months. I am exclusively BFing DS, but ...<br><br>
A few weeks ago I had several days of a strange pain in my right side, like a strong ovulation pain, which I attributed to my back (due to night nursing). The pain went away before I got a chance to go to the chiro.<br><br>
Then, two nights ago, I had a <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/crap.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crap"> dream that I was holding a pee stick with a very, unquestionably BFP glaring back at me. Now, the only other times I've dreamed with BFPs I've been pregnant.<br><br>
It's too early for me to be ovulating again, right? I'll Xpost in the BFing forum .... Anyone have their fertility return this early?

my oldest was EBF and her and her sister are just over a year apart, so yes. It is possible. i remember crying when i got my positive test while holding my 4 month old. I am glad how things worked out though.<br><br>
Wishing you the best!!

Yes, it's possible, but it's also possible that the dream is simply telling you there's another BFP in your future and it's too soon to consider a vasectomy.

Just makes me nervous, because I do tend to have prophetic/message dreams ... and I just got finished being pregnant, I don't want to be there again! And, no, I don't think 3 kids are in our future (providing this dream was just a dream).

Well, you baby is only 3mo. You may change your mind when your baby is bigger.

For the record, I got my first ppaf at 4 months even though my little girl is a boob fiend and STILL nurses on demand many many times night and day. I've had regular af since that first one at 4 months pp. Bummer, eh? So do be careful if you don't want another just yet...

Babies <i>are</i> adorable, I'll give you that. That is why I am soaking up every minute of cuteness every day, because this little guy is my last. I had two wonderful pregnancies, one hospital birth, and one fabulous home birth, and two marvelous children. In casino terms, I'll stick. I couldn't ask for anything better than what I already have, and so I won't!

Big time bummer! I loved all my AF free time with DD, from getting pregnant to 16 months after she was born ... it was FABULOUS! I hope this little guy gives me some more time too <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

If it is any consolation I have had sooo many BFP dreams while nursing and never actually been pg until I wanted to be with DD#2 and never after her. In fact I'm still nursing her and recently dreamed of a BFP and that's with an IUD and no sex. I wouldn't put too much stock in a dream. Now I would watch my fertility signs. Aside from that twinge anything going on with CM? I've known just about to the day when my fertility returned with both my girls at 19 months and 20 months pp.

Twilight girl, your post inspired me to start a thread on the "I'm Pregnant" thread asking if anyone had dreams that they were pregnant before the BPF. I love stories like that. My friend had a feeling she was pregnant while walking through an airport and upon seeing a child, her body told her she was going to have a little boy. She hadn't been TTC or thinking about it at all prior to that. Nothing like that dramatic has ever happened to me, so I'm amazed by those kinds of stories. Anyway, I'm glad you got a BFN, since that what you wanted.

When we were TTC both of the ones we have, I "asked" my body to give me a dream to let me know and both times I had dreams of either a positive hpt or of being pregnant, before I tested. And both times, I was pregnant!
