Hi ladies!! Congrats on the BFP's and bumps!!!
A question for all of you!
DH and I are thinking more about TTC, our daughter is 6 months old now. However I am exclusively breastfeeding (along with solids once a day about 5 days a week) and haven't gotten ppaf yet. I know that doesn't mean I can't get pregnant however we got pregnant with Scarlett with Clomid because I have an elevated testosterone level and don't ovulate on my own. Scarlett has night weaned herself and eats 5-6 times a day for about 5-15 minutes each time. I've been checking my cervix every day and it's very low and very closed with white sticky, far from fertile, cm. Do you ladies have any tips for us? I have been reading up on vitex (chasteberry) and vitamin b6 to get cycles going while breastfeeding but any advice would be welcome!

Thanks, Rojo!

I know, I'm so sick of the cold. So I decided to brave the weather and leave the house today and almost didn't make it past the first step! The sidewalk was covered in a perfect layer of ice. So we did a little slipping and near-falling, but once we were in the car, it was fine. So we went to the library for their "Toddler Time" and it was great! They sang songs and told stories
and Alia had a good time watching all the other kids and bouncing around during the songs. Then we had lunch with DH, and then went to visit a friend of mine who has a baby that's a month younger than Alia. It was so cute to see them together, especially because they kept trying to use each other to stand up. So when it came time to leave, we were trying to be so careful on the icy sidewalk, but my friend totally slipped and fell, though thankfully her baby was on the opposite hip, so he fell on top of her. She was okay, but still, it was so bad out there with that ice!

Great bump pic Spiffy!

I'm officially 2 days late... not that it means anything. I feel more hopeful this month though.

Hi, akblaze! Well, I don't know much about Clomid and elevated hormone levels and all that, but for me, my cycles didn't come back until Ozzy had been eating solids about 2-3 times a day for about a month. He started on solids at 5 1/2 months and my firs ppaf was when he was 7 1/2 months. Basically, I was down to breastfeeding him just 3-4 times a day. Not sure if that helps you out, but that's how it went for me.

Oooh, fingers crossed for you, Skadi!

AFM, I had my first "are you expecting?" comment based purely on appearance, so I now I know that I really do look pregnant! I've felt like I look it since 8 weeks, but I guess now it's pretty obvious. Still no pics, though. Sorry.

Did I mention that Ozzy is getting four teeth on the top? They've been slowly coming in over the last two weeks, and you can still only see little slivers of them showing. How long does/did it take for your kids' teeth to come in? Like, from the time you could see a little bump to the time the tooth was fully out? Ozzy's seem to take at least a month from start to finish.

Akblaze, sorry I didn't see your post. My milk supply ran out by the time my LO was about 6-8 weeks old, and then I got my ppaf about a month later. As for Vitex and B6, I'm not sure, sorry. But good luck!

Harley, Alia's bottom teeth always come in quicker than her top teeth, so from cutting the gum to all the way down, it's about 2 weeks for her bottom teeth, and a month for her top teeth. And you need to take a bump picture for us, woman!

Skadi, sorry to hear that the witch got you. It seems like she's always coming just late enough to get your hopes up.

Hey ladies,
Sorry I haven't been on here for ages, been super busy having relos visit from the UK for our wedding, DD's first christmas and I've also gone back to work. All in all it's been a busy few months Looks like you've all been pretty busy by the amount of BFP's I'm seeing... congrats to all of you and to those still waiting

Currently trying to get DD to sleep better during the day and night by self settling. DD slept from 8pm til 6am last night... best night sleep ever Which is good as I've BFP'd for the past couple of weeks and I'm absoloutely wiped out most of the time (as I started back at work on monday) ... not sure how far along we are until our 1st GP appointment on the 8th, but I'm thinking 5 weeks tomorrow.. so fingers crossed our little bean sticks. It'll be lovely to have a little brother or sister for DD

xx

Congrats, Ozzi! And good luck with getting DD to sleep better. 10 hours in a row is pretty amazing for a 6 month old! My DD is 10 and a half months old and she just started sleeping through the night last week!

Well, I pulled out the doppler last night with two sets of headphones, and DH and I were able to listen to our little baby together. LO was a little active though because I had to keep chasing him or her around with the doppler.
