sorry, i'm feeling a bit down and hopeless right now. i wish i wouldn't make myself crazy with this stuff but i do <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
dd will be 25 months on sunday and still no PPAF. i don't even feel like it's close anymore. i'm starting to freak myself out and wonder all kinds of crazy stuff i won't bore you all with. i know it's because dd's still nursing so much....but what if by some tiny chance it isn't?<br><br>
will it take this long for PPAF to show up next time? i suppose i already know the answer but i'm hoping somebody will say "yes, each time she comes back sooner"<br><br>
now i'm even starting to worry about not having enough time to have all the babies i'd like. i'm still pretty young, but dh is 10 years older and i doubt he'll be wanting to have babies in 10 years. so that's enough time for what, 2-3 more at most? why am i being so dramatic??? why is it so important to me to have a baby NOW??? why do i feel the need to have a lot of babies??? i only have one so far, i should wait and see how i feel after 2 or even 3. why can't i just accept the way things are and relax??? i know that the reason i'm not pregnant now is because it's not my time, and that when i do get pregnant, all this waiting and craziness will be worth it, but i just want to calm down and stop obsessing <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/banghead.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="banghead"><br><br>
well i guess this is really just a vent.......thanks for reading if you made it this far!

Hi.. I know you are really feeling frustrated right now <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
If it is any solace, I conceived my third child while still nursing #2 exclusively at 5 months pp.. but then with the third child, I went 16 months with a period. This just goes to say, that every child and nursing experience is different, and there is no way to predict how long you will go without a period with your next one.<br><br>
God bless <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br>

I haven't had my first yet <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> so I can't relate to the PPAF issue but I can relate to the obsessing and planning aspect! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">:<br><br>
The other night I was saying to DH....let's see....I'm almost 30. I'd like to have 3 or 4 kiddos....so how about we just go with no b/c for the next 10 years and let nature take its course -- 2, 3, 4 or more...whatever happens will be great!<br><br>
A year ago, DH would have looked at me like I was nuts....but now...going on 10 months of TTC....he thought my "plan" sounded pretty good.<br><br>
Hang in there....this is a great, supportive place!<br><br>

mel, thanks for the insight!<br><br>
chrissy, i know you know how i'm feeling here. how are you doing? i've been really curious as to what happened with the provera and if you ever started bleeding? sorry if i missed your post, i got lost at the end of the september threads.<br><br>
erin, i think that's such a great approach to take. i wish i could convince dh to go along with that, but i don't think he'd be open to that right now. i think i'd be a lot calmer if we were taking the same approach. i can't wait to hear you announce you're pregnant with #1 <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

about 21 months PP i started having very confusing symptoms, positive i was pregnant or going to get AF, etc. they seem to have backed off recently and now i feel like nothing's happening except for occasional pains around my left ovary but i don't think they're O related. oh well, i guess'time will only tell' <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">:<br><br>
i hope you get PPAF or pregnant very soon!!!
