Of course you can join. I wish I had a positive opk! It is driving me crazy and really stressing me out! I want to start TTC right now. I just don't know how to wean my baby or get her to stop co sleeping and to sleep in her crib. I know I just need to be strong and get the job done, but it is so hard since I know she loves bfing so much. I feel like I am trying to stop nursing her just because I want another and then I have guilt.how did you wean your little ones over night? Any help would be great! Who knew breast feeding could make you not be able to get pregnant again!
Shareema- aw yay a fellow April baby club TTC'er! I am so glad there are others going through the same things!!! Breast feeding and TTC is so hard!!! I get positive OPK's all the time So who knows when I will actually ovulate.
KjConrad- my son started waking up more to eat at night but we still put him in his crib after he falls asleep in our arms. He actually sleeps wayyyyy better in his own crib than our bed nowadays
Hey ladies, this is me! My LO is almost four months old now, fully breastfed (although started solids this week), and I'm desperate to have another baby. My first two were 13 months apart, and I really liked that age gap.
I am opening up a new business next month (May) and going to Vegas this upcoming weekend. So my new plan to TTC is probably in July but I would love it to be earlier maybe in June. I figure if my husband and I finally just suck it up and get the baby in her crib, I should hopefully get af back by the end of May if not in June, then it's go time! If all goes according to plan! We've been trying to get her out of our bed since she turned one in January! I think right when we get back we'll just do it. I know she wakes up to eat since I am laying right next to her. Also with opening up a new business I know I'll be overly stressed and don't want to be stressing about TTC as well! I still can't believe it has been two years since I have had af! I really really want her back!
Brooke- You are getting positive OPKs? That is a great sign! August is just around the corner! Have you had af yet?
Kjconrad- congrats on the new business!!! Can I ask what kind? I agree with you on the whole baby in crib return of AF thought. I stopped using OPK's and temping as often... Just going to wait until july to start temping and using OPK's then Start TTC in August no AF for me either!
Sure, I am opening an online baby and kids accessory and apparel boutique! I still have about half of the products to upload. The website is http:// chicpipsqueak.com. I think it will be ready to launch around Mother's Day! I love being a stay at home mommy and somehow I got an idea and it just grew into a fun new business!
I think we are going to put our daughter in her crib sometime this week. We really want our kids to be around two years apart and need to get going on things. I still love sleeping with her at night. I just want af back! I am trying to will my body into getting it back, but it isn't working so far!
I'm in the same boat! DS is a year old and I'm TTC again. I thought I had AF March 3rd...but nothing since then I'm still nursing my son..he just started daycare this week, and I go back to work in a month, so I figure AF will return sometime soon.
I think I got AF in March because my son was STTN and I wasn't BFing as much..he then got sick and was BFing around the clock (so I think this stopped my ovulation).
I really have the baby bug - even looking at my hospital card makes me want another one!
Ahh! I so want another too! It. Sucks because my dd is obsessed with nursing all of a sudden. We were in Vegas last week and she only really nursed at night and then we got home and she wants to nurse around the clock. I think it has to do with teething and I give her "milk" anytime she asks ( she puts her fist to her outs to sign for milk) and I just wish she was ready to wean. We really don't want our kids much further apart then two years. I got pregnant two years ago May 21st, so I am getting so antsy. I think this week we are going to stop co sleeping. I figure we need to end it at some point we can't avoid it and dd will be upset. She loves loves loves babies so I keep telling myself it is for the good of our family to get her in her own crib. She also wakes me up 20 times a night so I think we will all benefit for her sleeping in her own room. Why is it so hard though?
So good news ladies I think I got AF! Which is good because I really didn't want to stop BFing to bring her back! My LO has been sleeping really good the past three night, last night she slept 7 hours before waking up, and we are still co sleeping! That never happens! I was not expecting to get AF back yet, and I hope she sticks around! I have a bad case of the baby bug and am already plotting another pregnancy! I can't wait to start testing for ovulation in a few weeks!
