CD 5 here. Spent yesterday at my brother in laws for a new with my pregnant niece being waited on and fussed over. I am happy for her, but it just makes me sadder for me at the same time.

Hoping- Fingers and toes crossed for you!!

Mother- I know somewhat how you feel. Although mine isn't a family member. I work at a school with emotional needs children so I told them I am trying to get pregnant. Well I feel like since I came out 3-4 teachers have announced their pregnancy. I am super happy for them but the one wasn't even trying it just happened and I am on cycle 4...i know many woman have been trying way longer than me it's just hard.

I never breastfeed my two girls always felt insecure about trying it . This time around though I am really open to the idea , I really want to expierence it. Iíve never had leaky breasts or milk after birth either . Would it even be possible to breastfeed a third child if not done before Iím sure it would be lol .

JL DD1 didnít have a clue I was pregnant didnít even realise my period was late lol working too much at the time . I knew I was pregnant with DD2 on the day my AF was due I just didnít have the same AF symptoms no brown spotting few days before etc .

I am currently on CD 17 . Just come out of my fertile window I think . Not holding much hope out this month since we only DTD two with this stupid infection

Wrig I'm about 4 and a half weeks.

Jl i know what you mean about breastfeeding. It is seriously difficult, especially adding pumping into the mix! My friend was one of those super milk producers. She fed her kid & pumped a ton extra for back up. He ended up having a dairy intolerance so eventually she had a bunch of milk she couldn't feed him and she gave it to me. So fortunately for me i did get to supplement him with bm even if it wasn't mine (and it was from a source i trusted). She had no problem at all replenishing her stock!

Baby maybe you'll be pleasantly surprised

Babybump - Oh yes you definitely can even if you didn't with prior. As long as everything is fine. Even women who never had kids can breastfeed. There are people who adopt and breastfeed their adopted children. It's harder that way, but it is possible!

Breastfeeding my two boys were completely different both times. DS1 had a bad latch unknown to me. Most likely linked to his tongue tie that was never corrected as they felt he was doing fine. He was gaining and eating well but I had to use a shield and because of that it harmed my supply and we had to supplement. Took me forever to get him off the shield on directly attach to me. Then with DS2 omg was it amazing! Perfect latch that made me look back and realize that DS1 struggled with latch and I had to always help by holding myself a certain way. DS2 would just latch on and I wouldn't need to do anything. My milk supply was more than enough allowing me to stock up on bags. Only issue I had with him is he had would start to get stuffy sounding and had difficulties breathing while eating and it made feeding him difficult till about 4 months. There was a name for it but I would have to go back and look.

CD2.......

Congrats gigglebox and Wriggley!
Hoping for more BFPs soon.

So, I'm pretty sure I'm always going to be working the weekends I ovulate. So far I pretty much always ovulate on the weekends and I'm ALWAYS WORKING. Which makes it almost impossible to DTD. I work 12 hour shifts, come home, then my husband goes to work in a hour. Going to have to come home, throw candy at our boys' feet, then have a quickie!

I attempted to feed my first two but it didn't go to plan and I gave up pretty quickly. My 3rd though it all just fell in to place and went really well, so it's definitely possible.

We've been trying over 2 years, almost as long as we were trying for ds4 (2.5 years) and during that time I saw people fall pregnant, give birth and fall pregnant again. My niece was talking about losing weight after she has her baby and said "but if we want another one is there much point in trying to lose weight before we have the next one" and I could just see the very possible future of her giving birth and then falling pregnant again and me still being here.
