Anyone else TTC while breast feeding?

Postby photofashionista » Fri Sep 16, 2011 6:16 pm

I have an almost 1 year old and am not planning to wean anytime soon. AF returned at 3 months PP and we've been NTNP since then. But starting this month we are actively TTC since I want them to be sort of close in age. My LP was short but seemed to lenthen to 12 days now so I'm hopeful. Anyone else in the same boat?

Yes, I am still nursing my 19 month old (i do hope to stop soon) we have been ntnp since 4 months pp but 1st ppaf was not until march.
fertility can return in stages while bf, but if your lp is lengthening that is a good sign.

Good luck Rubyru! It's impossible to chart since she still wakes 4 times during the night so I think I'll get some OPK's since my O date has been jumping around. I've never used them before but I think it's too late for this cycle since I"ll probalby O next week.

Where are you at in your cycle?

Yay for a peak! Babydust to you!! :)

Did you get EWCM? It was finally noticeable this cycle for me.

Hi ladies! This is the first time I have posted since having my baby last August 2010 and I am excited to be TTC#2. However, I am still BFing the babe who is 13 months and I haven't received AF yet. Is it possible to get pregnant without AF???

P.S. - I had to set up a new account to reply to the board??? Weird,huh? Now I can't remember how to add pictures...oh well, I'll figure it out.

La leche have an article about return of fertility and 14months is quite typical. If AF returns before that fertility has not necessarily returned as lp can still be too short (no guarantee either way)

You can get pg before 1st ppaf, I did after dd1 (m/c) and then again after 2 months with no AF.

I did not use my account for 2yrs but it was still here.

Well last month my LP was finally back to normal and this month I had lots of EWCM that I really haven't had since she was born. I'm now pg! I don't know what the thing was that changed, other than my body was finally ready for it to happen.

Hoping I can still keep BFing through the pregnancy.

I'm still nursing my daughter (21 months) and we just started TTC this month. (AF returned around 16 months). I used an OPK was happy to see that I am indeed ovulating, and that I expect AF 14 days after I was supposed to ovulate, so I'm hoping the breastfeeding won't interfer too much, but we'll see.

Nice to see that there are others also in this boat!

I am the same as rjc77. I am nursing my 21 month DD and we just started trying this month. I didn't think to try some ovulation tests to see if i'm still on schedule. I've just assumed that since I've been getting my period things should be back to normal. I'm going to go get some tests to make sure. Good luck to you :D

we will be TTC in the next few months and i have a 7 mo old that i still nurse. AF returned last month so i'm learning my cycle a bit now to hopefully figure out O dates by may-june. i was on the mini pill but i heard that once AF returns it's not effective. baby dust ladies!

We will be TTC later on this year too! my LO is 3 months right now and is EBF. I'm not sure if my AF returned yet or not (thought it did at 7 weeks pp, but am thinking it was just an odd bleed from mirena insertion then removal). I'm just starting to chart again to try to figure out my cycle (no one ever mentioned how difficult it was to figure out one's body after having a baby!) I've already gotten what I think is positive OPK's yesterday, and CM seems to be picking up now. I also tested for pregancy just to check since I'm feeling wonky, haven't had a period since what I thought was my first PP AF, and had positive OPKS with my last pregnancy. Hopefully my cycles will be regulated by the summer as well-even with EBF'ing.
I was hoping to find other mama's who were EBF'ing and perhaps mama's of recent babies to share this journey with LOL
