Mind if I join in to? Also starting to TTC #2 (next cycle) while nursing an 18 month old.

Got my cycles back at 4 month pp. Very irregular to start. Still not perfect (average cycle is around 36 days) but they have been fairly predictable for the last 6 months with definite signs of o followed by af 14-16 days later. This cycle I was positive I o on cd15 and had all the signs of af coming for cd30 but now its cd36 and still no af. Very confused and frustrated. I was doing temps before I had DS but never got back into it as I never seem to get 5+ hours of straight sleep anymore. I don't use opk's either so I guess it's possible I o later. I have never had pms symptoms last this long without af showing up (poor DH). Only other thing I can think of is that I have been stressed out lately but I didn't think stress could affect your luteal phase. Hoping af will coming soon and starting temps with next cycle for sure!

I don't think stress can affect the LP... The more likely scenario is that O was delayed... Especially if you are still nursing!
My son has been STTN since 7 months so my temps are pretty reliable, but I read that you can still BBT even if you are up quite a bit at night- perhaps do some reading? I'll try to find the article I read and post it, but I'm headed back to my classroom after some snow days so today could be crazy!
Hope your Friday is great!!

Thanks mommy2B! I did some reading online and most people said 5+ hours. However I did find a few people saying they had success with 3 hours if its solid/uninterrupted. That is encouraging and doable.

Thought I'd update for fun. I ended up getting my BFP at 10dpo and it looks like a few of you are also expecting December babies! How exciting :D
