I am SO not used to hormonal fluctuations. When I was ovulating the first time after Marsi was born I couldn't believe how much I wanted another baby. When AF started, that desire went away. Now that AF is over I thought that I would have a longer reprieve from baby hunger. Nope. Baby hunger is in full force today. I am really, really trying to just keep it in and not bring it up to DH. I know we can't TTC right now for a variety of reasons...biology sucks.
I'd pretty much talked myself into not trying for the rest of the summer... until AF started to subside.. then I was plotting the best time to BD while Reme's around LOL.

I completely understand. I am in the same boat. I was all gung-ho about TTA and as soon as I knew I may be ovulating, my body was like "OMG, I WANT TO BE PREGNANT RIGHT NAOW!" Now, I am potentially in the TWW and if I not pregnant, I know I will have a bit of disappointment but also some relief. We still have a good 2 months until we want to TTC, if not more but I just can't stop my body from wanting what it wants.
Lucy, after giving birth to Marsi, I would literally have a massive panic attack when thinking about the possibility of having another child. I mean I went out and bought a 100 pack of condoms It took until Marsi was 3 months old to not panic and 6 months to want to TTC again. When Marsi turned 6 months I bought 75 OPKs and 25 HPTs.
Well if my baby desires have anything to do with fluctuating hormones, my body is going to town! I know I keep gearing up to ovulate and then nothing happens. I go from really wanting more children to feeling like I never want another baby again! It's pretty frustrating. We are not ready to TTC until spring, so I am so happy I have DH to bring me back to my senses when I feel like a mess up would be ok.
