I’m back!

Hey all! I need a place to write into the abyss about this because I’ve got a lot of feelings tonight. I got married in October of 2016, we started trying in December and it took us 6 months to conceive our beautiful baby boy. He was born January 24th, 2018. We just started trying again for baby 2, and I’m on my third cycle. Technically we haven’t ever been not trying, we’ve just never prevented. I’m still breastfeeding, but my son is sleeping through the night for the most part. I’m going to start temping again this cycle probably tomorrow. I just had to buy a new thermometer. I feel so blessed to have or son, but now that we’re trying for #2, I’m having a lot of feelings. The first cycle back I had a very light period, and only a 4 day LP, the second cycle was a more normal period for me, but still only a 7 day LP. I’m nervous that I won’t be able to get pregnant again until I wean fully, and I know he’s not ready for it, and neither am I. I started taking maca root this cycle in hopes that it will help my LP. I’ve been taking my prenatal, switched to sunflower lecithin from soy lecithin this cycle, and flaxseed oil. We also bought some Conceive plus lube to try to help out that baby making session. I should be ovulating in the next week or so. Cycles have been around 33 days, but ovulation on like... day 26. It’s frustrating. I just needed to put this into the universe. “And with a patient heart, I will wait.”
