anyuone breastfeeding????

Postby brownhairedmom » Fri Apr 20, 2012 11:32 am

I am breastfeeding and I am cramping like af wants to come, but this has been going on for over a week now. thomas is 11 months old, and nursing a lot less, which my supply is decreased. i know that can trigger ovulation.

I just feel just like Af is coming.

anybody experience the same???

YES! I am down to 1 feed a day, at night. I'm using vitex, drinking tea, and I feel cramping and (tmi warning) increase in discharge. I get super excited, then disappointed that it's not AF. I just want to be able to start a chart!!! Very frustrating. I'm so glad to find other people who can relate. I'm going to the doctor on May 16, but I am hoping AF will show up before then. Any tricks to try?

increase your estrogen. If your estrogen surges, it will trigger an LH surge which will trigger ovulation.

I had a freak estrogen surge followed by a detectable LH surge, but my opk wasn't positive.

so I don't know if that was enough to trigger o, I did have some cramping early tody in my side. I just don't know if I did or didn't. I bf several times a night and that makes it more impossible to o, but my body has been acting like it wants to do something.

I even woke up with a libido yesterday< I have NOT had any type of libido whatsoever.

I'm EBFing but have gotten AF back (back at 2 months pp).
Sorry I can't be more help!

I know when AF is on its way I get the cramps like when I was first PP and my uterus was shrinking. Only for about 8-10 hours- then she is here on my doorstep LOL

My ovulation on the other hand is still inconsistent. BOOO

my son is almost 11 months and down to 2x's a day nursing. i've had my af back since 6 mo pp but it's SO irregular i have no clue if i'm actually ovulating. i tried opk's but never got a surge line after taking them daily for two weeks. i just started temping this week. hoping to have some answers. if you did o two weeks ago do you think you could be pregnant?
