We're looking forward to another baby, but I haven't had AF yet. I just thought I'd see how many of you were able to conceive while BFing. Also, if you did, did you have AF yet? I understand that's it's possible to be fertile with no AF for a month or two. Thanks Mamas! I didn't know where to post this, but I thought since we're all BFing, it's be a good place!

i got pregnant and breastfed through my second and third pregnancies.
dd#1 was 18mo when dd#2 was conceived. I had AF for only a few months before.
I got pregnant with ds #1 when dd#2 was 9mo. one wacky AF cycle before (like 48 days long or something crazy)

I got pregnant twice while bfing. The first time dd was 5 months, exclusive, on demand, co-sleeping.....the second time, I was tandem nursing dd (then 18 months old) and her little sister, then 4 months old.....that pregnancy ended in a m/c. Neither time had I seen any sign of


Guess I'm just lucky that way! :LOL

I concieved twice while nursing my DD. The 1st time I was having my period again, although it hadnt yet become regular. I ended up miscarrying at 12.5 weeks and became pregnant again 4 months later, before my periods were regular again from the miscarriage.

Good luck!!

Hi, I'm new here but thought I'd reply. I got a very light period at 10mos and got prego about 3 weeks later. I'm still breastfeeding and now am on the fence about weather to tandem nurse or not. I think I'll post a new one on that... Good luck!

We conceived while BFing on our first month TTC'ing. But our babe was also 18 months old at the time and was down to only a few nursings a day, he is still nursing at the same rate. I got AF after about 10 months.

We conceived right before DS turned one - and I had yet to have AF. I had started taking chaste berry/vitax supplements to encourage the return of fertility, but I'm not sure if that "did the trick" or whether my body was just ready on it's own...


By the time I have this baby it'll have been YEARS since I've seen AF!!

We were able to conceive ds#2 while I was bf ds#1. We would love to start TTC again soon, but I have yet to see AF this time. Hope she comes back to visit soon. Or if I could do like you and conceive without her ever coming to visit, that would be even better.

Actually, once you ovulate you will have a period appx 14 days later. But, you can have several periods (for years even) and never ovulate.
I highly recommend the book, "Taking Charge of Your Fertility" to everyone (man or woman)!!!

Hey Mommyofone! I just noticed that you are due exactly one month before me. YAY!

I got AF back when my ds was 13 months old. I didn't get AF again
I'm still nursing like crazy so it's definately possible to get pregnant while nursing. Good luck!
