I know I havent checked in like FOREVER!!! but I had to go see my fellow nursing mamas and give them some great and hopeful news.....I tested today and I got a <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/pos.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="positive"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/pos.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="positive"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/pos.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="positive"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/pos.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="positive"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/pos.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="positive"><br><br>
We have been trying for 8 cycles so we were starting to doubt ourselves and allowing ds to continue to nurse. But I"m so glad that I didnt wean him. He is just 27 months old and still needs his mama milk so much!! We will see where this leads us in terms of my milk supply drying up and whether or not he will wean, but I will let him decide, not me.<br><br>
I am also ashamed to say that I am so excited to tell THE MANY people who said that I couldn't get pregnant while nursing.......HA!<br><br>
Good luck to all of you and your journeys with your little ones. I will say that I think that nightweaning helped us a lot as not only did it help me conceive but it also helped me get more rest!!!!<br><br>
Thanks for all of the support over the last 8 months, hope to see alot of you soon in the pregnancy forums!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

just a slight update -- my dd is 17 months (I can't believe she's that old - yikes!)<br><br>
Congrats to all the newly preggo mamas! Wow, May was a hot month. I sure hope I don't have to nightwean dd to get preggo. I work full-time so I don't even nurse her much during the day. After my next trip out of town for work (later this month), I'm going to quit pumping (I sure am sick of that thing) and dd is down to one little snack in the middle of the night so I think we'll be ok <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/fingersx.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="fingersx">:<br><br>

Hope, I don't think you should consider nightweaning if you are already away from your dd for 8 or more hours a day. The point of nightweaning is to get a non-nursing stretch of time. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Oh good! I'm glad you think so. I've just heard that night nursing seems to have a big impact on things (supply, af returning, etc) so I was really hoping that it wouldn't be a problem for me. Even when I'm home, dd typically nurses only twice during the day (unless she takes a header on the stairs like yesterday <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">) then before bed, once at night, and when we wake up.<br><br>
happy baby vibes to all!

I'm here too, going a little <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/nut.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="nut"> in the 2ww. Nursing my little 2.5 yr old DS. We nightweaned at 18 months, and he nurse maybe 4 times a day tops. I got pg in Dec and m/c so at least I know I can concieve while nursing, and I could tell that to a friend who suggested nursing was interfering with TTC.

Hey there Mamas,<br>
I haven't stopped by in a really long time because I've been caught up in this extended interviewing process for a job. I should find out pretty soon whether they'll take me or not - at least I hope so, because they have been dragging this process out long enough.<br><br>
In any case, I'd still love to be holding a little baby within a year, though it would make things more complicated IF I have the job.<br><br>
If I don't get the job, making Little Squeak #2 and writing my dissertation are my plan for next year.<br><br>
Good luck to you all.<br><br>
M.

Just subscribing and wanted to say congrats to all the bf mamas who got pregnant in May! It has been an exciting month to watch.<br><br>
Here's my chart: <a href="http://fertilityfriend.com/home/4e69a" target="_blank">http://fertilityfriend.com/home/4e69a</a><br>
I have a coverline but not so sure about it, so still "waiting to o" for now. My son is 25 months.

Hi all,<br><br>
My name is Natalie and I am nursing my 13 month old DS. I have not had a ppaf yet, but my body is showing signs of returning fetility (or maybe it's just wishful thinking). If I am correct I may have ovulated on the 27th or 28th of May and I may be around 8dpo. At around 12 dpo I will test.<br><br>
My son started sleeping through the night much to my surprise, but then got sick and now nurses through the night as of last week. I am at the "don't offer don't refuse" stage of our nursing relationship. The longest stretch we go without nursing is about 6 hours. Hopefully he will start sleeping through the night again once he gets over his little bug.<br><br>
I am anxious to conceive because I am 33 and would like 3 children. I really want DS to have siblings. I spent the first 15 years of my life as an only child and I much prefer life with a sibling even though we are so far apart in age (my brother is 19). My brother and I aren't even really that close, but he really feels like family to me. I would do anything for him if he needed it and I would like my DS to have lots of family around him. Also, I love DS so much I want more children to love. Being a mother is one of the best things that has ever happened to me. I became fully myself when I became a mom, but that is a whole other thread!<br><br>
Congrats to all the newly pregnant moms. I really hope I and the rest of us can join you soon <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> .<br><br><br>

Hi<br><br>
Ds is 22 months and I'm in the 2ww, though like Mamatoady, I think I was just prematurely in the waiting to o... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">

Hi there,<br>
I haven't checked in for a long time, but I wanted to say that it can happen! It took us only 3 months to get our BFP, and we didn't cut down on any nursing at all. My daughter is 31 months old now, and seldom nurses at night, but still a few times a day.<br><br>
Like Heather, I'm a little excited to tell those who said I couldn't get pregnant while nursing!

Just checking in . . .<br>
DD is almost 28 months old, nursing just a few times a day. We decided against weaning . . .it would be too sad, and besides, I really don't think it's why I have a short luteal phase.<br><br>
Hoping just to lengthen my LP this month . . .a BFP would just be a HUGE bonus!

I hear ya on this one. I'm 35 (and a half as of Friday - <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yikes">: ) and also want 3 kids.<br><br>
I'm now in the 2ww but not sure dh and I got the timing just right. I think we should have made another attempt over the weekend but it wasn't in the cards. (although I think I secretly want to wait until after July 24 to get pregnant so I can run in a 10-mile race in my town - always wanted to do it and this should be the year unless I get that bfp).<br><br>
But I'm still keeping my <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/fingersx.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="fingersx">:

Hey Mamas! Can I join in here? I'm Eva, mama of 2. Gretchen, 3 and Koen 23 months. THey tandem nursed for... gosh over a year and a half. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> Though we weren't planning to have another just yet we still had fun when we knew we were fertile and got pg again. Sadly, we lost that baby, our 4th miscarriage. But we 'think' we've got the reason for all the losses finally pinpointed and are hopeful to get to keep the next. Feeling optimistic at the moment though earlier today I was in a panic just thinking about trying to get pg again... what a roller coaster eh?<br><br>
Anyway, I look forward to getting to know everyone! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Hi Eva! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wave.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wave"> I hope you have good luck with your pg when it happens for you this time.<br>
Do you know what point you are at in your cycle?

Hi Molly <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wave.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wave"> Thanks for the welcome. I'm cd8 waiting for O.<br><br>
I am so relieved and excited! I made an appointment with one of the docs on base. We live on a very tiny space ops/naval surface warface command in VA. I haven't had much contact with the 2 docs here as I try to avoid docs whenever possible. So I dug up some courage and made an appointment to discuss getting prog for the next cycle. My lp is normally only 8 days, I've had 4 early m/c's and both Gretchen and Koen were due in part to prog supps through the 1st trimester. Oh and I was also diagnosed with antiphospholip syndrome early in Koen's pg. I have always been poopooed by docs, seems they never respect the fact that I know my body and I research everything to death so I actually have a clue. Anyway, they called and the appointment had to be rescheduled but the doc wanted to talk with me. I actually had a nice, mutually respectful, discussion about what's been going on and he was 100% supportive, encouraging and hopeful! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/jaw2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="jaw2"> I was totally prepared to have to argue all the reasons why I needed help citing various studies and such and that was totally unnecessary! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> He's not so sure about the low prog being a prob... we'll discuss that later and I'll insist on prog checks throughout and supps if nec as I know for a fact my prog was very low with both G and K. He was most concerned about the antiphospholipid syndrom. He was almost giddy when I told him that saying, "Yes! That makes total sense! That's dealable! Let's get you in here and we'll draw up a plan for your next pg!" WAHOOOOO I'm so relieved! I'll still be asking to refer out to the Birthing Center for the bulk of my pg care but it was so wonderful to actually be listened to and now I know I have someone here who will do what needs to be done from a medical standpoint to help us keep the next little miracle!<br><br>
Does anyone else here have experience with antiphospholipid syndrom?<br><br>
Better run, Koen's askin for Nee-Nee and a nap. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">
