How many got preg while still nursing, and how fast?

Postby curiouscat » Thu Mar 12, 2009 11:40 am

Hi - We're thinking of TTC #2 (have 8 month old now) - but still no AF. What are the chances of conceiving while still nursing (I would like to keep nursing until a bit after 12 months)...

Are the chances good... has anyone been successful? Or is it better to wait until AF returns?

I have not used any protection since my 3rd child. I have nursed 7 out of my 10 children. I can't get pregnant while nursing. I don't get a period or anything until I wean.

I am exclusively breastfeeding on demand (EBF) and got my first AF at 4 weeks post partum. I have had regularly periods ever since - I am currently TTC number 2 so I will let you know when and if we have success!

My DD is only 4months old so I am starting early - periods seem relatively regular though...
Me - 30
DH - 32
DD1 - Heidi (1st April 09)
DD2 - Lulu (3rd May 10)
