Breastfeeding mommy's wanting to TTC but still don't have a cycle


Hi everyone! I hope this new thread brings together other moms out there in my same boat. My daughter is 14 months and we are ready to have another baby but my fertility hasn't returned yet. She isn't ready to completely wean yet so we have started trying to night wean to see of that jump starts my body. Anyone else breastfeeding and wanting to TTC again?

Oh, I am so glad I am not alone! It sucks! I am hoping I ovulate beforehand as well and catch the egg! . I've never wanted her back so bad and stress about it often! Are you still nursing and co sleeping with your son? I know if I stop nursing my DD then I will get it back, but I know she is t ready yet as she still loves nursing, especially overnight.

I'm not a mom but I'm trying for my 1st. I saw your post and wanted to let you know that it is very possible and common that women get pregnant while still nursing. Working in an obgyn office I can say that we have numerous patients calling 6 months after delivery coming in to confirm yet another pregnancy. Though you shouldn't have a cycle while nursing it can be tricky because you may not be sure about the timing.... So that's where random love making comes in to play...lots and lots and lots of it haha!

I nurse him several times a day and nurse at night at least once. We stopped co sleeping last month because he would nurse all night and my back would hurt terribly in the morning. I am not willing to quit nursing either. I took an evening primrose oil pill one day but got scared to keep taking them. (I read they help to get your cycle back) are you using OPK's or anything?

I decided to start an iron supplement in January called floradix and after about three days I decided it wasn't for me. I couldn't stand the taste and just felt weird trying to bring my cycle back with an iron supplement. So I stopped. How did you get your son to sleep in his crib and stop nursing overnight? My daughter will awake ten to twenty times a night to nurse, either for a few minutes or a full on nurse. We really want to get her to sleep through the night and in her crib but she is so stubborn that I am dreading letting her cry it out in her crib. At the same time I want another baby so it is so confusing on what to do!

I am trying to do as much attachment parenting as possible while caring for myself as well. It was hard and took a couple weeks but I feed him at night and get him slightly tired to full on comatosed then I walk away and go into a separate room while my husband rocks him to sleep. He does carry on a bit but way better him crying in my husbands arms than in a room alone. So after he falls asleep my husband puts him in his room and when he wakes up I feed him and then have my husband carry him back to his crib. If he can see or smell me he will not go down easily. It is so nice have "alone time" with my husband again! I really felt like we were quickly becoming more like roommates having a baby with us all night.

I totally can relate. We feel like roommates right now. It is always me and the baby and we would love some alone time before I get pregnant again. I would love to get pregnant again in May or June. We have my aunt's, dad's nieces and sister in laws birthday, not to mention a couple friend's babies birthdays, all within a week of each other in Dec, then Christmas, then Cameryn's birthday in Jan, the. valentines day and my birthday in Feb so I would love to have a March baby or even a Feb birthday so I really want to get my cycle back and conceive I thought I was having my first symptoms since getting pregnant about a week ago, so being the poasa I am I took a pregnancy test today and to no surprise it was a negative. I hope I am not just making up symptoms in my head! Hopefully soon good old AF will return! I want another baby!

Omg! I was wondering why it had been so long since I had got an update from this post... For some reason I had unsubscribed and just searched for it again! It's really nice having someone to talk to that is in the same place as me! Anyways! I really hope you start getting alone time soon!! You guy really deserve it!!

ASM- I really would have preferred a November or earlier baby. I have 2 feb babies and 1 march baby. I DTD today and had a small amount of blood when I wiped so I thought for sure AF finally came but nope that little bit of blood was it... Praying it was ovulation bleeding but that's doubtful. How are you doing?!

Hi guys I hope you don't mind if I join you, brookettc3 I know you from the april 2012 babies my son was born on 12/4/12. I also want my cycle to be back and I'm still breasteeding my son. He's weaned when it comes to day feed but I still feed him at night as it's the only soother he'll take.
I have been monitoring cm and used opk and I did have a positive opk (smilie)a few days ago and bdd accordingly so I really hope the egg was released and that I managed to catch it. I always wanted 3 children and would want them to be close in age.
