I posted this back when DS was 18 months old. Some of the comments were really helpful

Confused if I'm even ovulating...while breastfeeding toddler

That is so great you actually got AF!! So excited for you! Will it change anything for you? Are you going to temp or opk or just go by cm still? I'm being patient, no biggie over here. We have 2.5 years in between our first 2 and it's a lovely gap I wouldn't mind again... so that would mean pregnant by September hopefully.

I'm not 100% sure lol

I'll keep checking cm and using opks but now I'm being picky what month I want to be having another baby.
If I get pregnant this cycle it might be a Christmas baby and a 3 year age gap. I'm excited for that age gap but not so excited by another winter baby....I know people don't always get pregnant first month trying so it's probably a slim chance.
I think ideally I'd really like a Spring baby (March, April, May or June)

How're things going? Having some weird cm today, feels really watery but it's creamy not clear in any way. Hm. I'll take an opk this afternoon and see if it's dark or not. And we're due to Dtd tomorrow night not tonight... but I doubt it's anything anyways as my dd's nursing habits haven't changed at all

It could be a subtle change but maybe not quite enough for ovulation.
You never know though.
I'm on CD10. I'll probably start taking opks tomorrow to pinpoint ovulation, but I'm not putting any pressure on DH to dtd with intention of conceiving. I just want to know when I ovulate to see how long my luteal phase is, not too rushed to get pregnant but if it happens it happens
My milk supply feels so low now. DH actually took DS to his mother's overnight two nights ago and I went 24 hours without even pumping and felt full but not painful when they got back. Only 5 months ago I had to pump every 8 hours minimum or I'd be in so much pain. (I went to help out my SIL with her new baby and was away from DS for 48 hours) DS still asks to nurse just as much during the day but he really doesn't get much so he eats more solids finally. Last night he slept 9pm-6am without asking to nurse and I slept the whole time beside him even. He then nursed from 6-8:30am straight until we got up.
I think I'd really like a Spring baby. Like one year from today lol. It's so gorgeous outside today! There's more daylight hours and much easier driving conditions ect.
How is your Lo's sleep? Have her molars come in now?

Wow that's good, that's awesome your fertility is in full swing sounds like! I'm the same... one year from today would be awesome lol. I know that if I'm not pregnant by the end of the summer I will be bummed for sure... so I hope that I am. Pregnant in June would be ideal. My friend who I was hoping to be pregnant with got her BFP, but that's great. She is spotting a bit so I'm feeling a bit nervous for her. But her due date is 4 days before my LO turns 2 I'm aiming to BF to 18 months and then I will be weaning if my LO is amenable :P

I'm giving all credit to night weaning for my cycles coming back, if you don't want to fully wean Reiko...but it was really tough finding the right timing. We are using a Gro clock which really helps too. So he knows he cant nurse until the sun comes up because nursies are sleeping. Last night he wanted some at 4:30 am and I said " I promise you can have some when the sun is up." I then reminded him of a book he has about making promises and he totally accepted it and went back to sleep and then I followed through with my promise. It's so much easier when they understand more and aren't going through sickness or teething, ect. I don't know what i'll do when ds's 2nd set of molars comes in.

Welcome Vickster! I remember you from when we were wtt and ttc#1!!
How have your cycles been weird? Just different lengths? Do you track ovulation? I hope you get your soon!

Could I join you?

I am currently EBF my 7 month old DS and DH and I have been NTNP since he was born. My cycles haven't come back yet but I think they're trying to. Over the last few months, I've had almost fertile cm, then it went away, then almost fertile, then it went away and my opks kept cycling through faint to darkish lines back to faint - no positive OPKs, but something seemed to be trying to happen.

Earlier this week, I took an OPK and it was negative, the test line hardly showed up (I almost always have some sort of line thanks to PCOS). I took another OPK Thursday night because I had a ton of cm ( ). To my shock it was almost positive and definitely the darkest OPK I've had so far. I had some EWCM as well and cramping on my right side. I took another OPK Friday morning and it was positive I didn't get to take any more OPKs because I ran out But after Thursday night, almost all of the cramping stopped and all the other weird random symptoms I had (like my face breaking out stopped to). That's the same kind of pattern I had while TTC last time, too, so I'm feeling pretty hopeful that I finally ovulated!

I think what did it was that DS has started nursing less and sleeping more. He was nursing 10+ times a day and he woke up 3-4 times every night. But he's slowly started to go longer stretches without nursing and he's now up to going 3+ hours between feeds and sleeping 4+ hour stretches at night.

Nice to meet you Aiden's mommy. I'm interested to see what happens in roughly 2 weeks for you! My first ovulation I only have a lp length of 5 days! Next one I'm guessing was about 9 days.
I'm hoping things become more regular. Currently I'm still waiting to O and I'm on day 16. I had a near positive yesterday but no ewcm. It's all so confusing.
