Hey ladies, I decided to officially join you. I'm Laurel, mom to Phoenix (5) and Lincoln (9mos). We're not quite actively trying, but we're letting happen what happens. I've been nursing exclusively with no bottles, no pacifiers and on demand feedings. I still haven't had a PPAF and I'm hoping for it so we can start TTC.

So since I don't have a PPAF how do I chart? I know nothing about TTC because both my kids were concieved without trying.

Hey Laurel!!! I am glad you desided to join us We are hostless (our old host recently got a BFP ) and pretty slow but none the less this is a great board and the ladies are really sweet. You will see a lot of the AP mommies here

About charting....since you have no AF chances are you are not Oing at all. But you can still chart your waking temp daily and look for signs that you may be returning to fertility soon. Plus it is good to just practice that way you and DH will be old pro's once you do get AF back.

Do you know what method you will be using for charting? There are a couple differnt types. Sympto-thermal method is that I use...where you temp and check your CM and cervical position. Billings Ovulation Method follows mainly fertility signs and I don't think they temp, could be wrong. And there are a couple others...these are just the main two.

Once Lincoln starts eating more solid foods and nursing less I bet your AF will come back.

welcome to the board and GOOD LUCK!!! We are NTNP too

Thanks Nikki! It's good to see a familiar face! I can't wait for AF to come back, Lincoln has been eating solids more and more now and so I'm crossing my fingers.

I have NO idea what method I'm going to use, I think I should start looking into it. I honestly have NO idea about anything. I'm a total newbie. *off to research*

Did you know JM has an NFP board down towards the bottom? NFP is natural family planning which is charting.

Here is a link to the board about BF and a return to fertility with some good links in it:
http://www.justmommies.com/forums/f2...fertility.html (Breastfeeding Infertility and Post Partum Return to Fertility)

And here is another link to the board about the different types of NFP:
http://www.justmommies.com/forums/f2...resources.html (Online Resources)

And you can always PM me. The other ladies on this board also chart

Hi Laurel! Glad to have you join us I'm Elise, i'm 21, and DH is Remy, 27. We have Eva, nearly 3, and Jayden is 7 1/2 months. We are also NTNP atm. We will start officially TTC in Jan/Feb if we haven't fallen preg by then. Jayden is only nursing once a day now...barely It's a bit sad but he's a hungry boy and mumma can't keep up with him!!
I'm charting even though we won't be timing BD. I love charting! I actually started when Jayden was a little over 3 months. It is frustrating before that 1st ppaf though. I think I was temping for about 130 days before I had AF. And what's more, I don't think I ovulated before I got it either. But since Lincoln is 9 months, chances are you'll ovulate before your ppaf! So it might be worth charting now

Hey Laurel! I'm here too and same boat as you since I haven't had a PPAF either. I haven't started charting yet, but Nikki has given me some great tips on it.

Welcome Laurel! I'm Jo (30) and my hubby is Rich (41). We have one daughter, Dakota who is almost 3 who loves nursing! We've slowly managed to negotiate her down to just bedtime and morning though. I want her to self-wean but if ttc keeps on being so elusive I may have to just stop sometime after she is 3 (July).

We had no pacifiers, bottles and fed on demand too (and co-sleep) and my 1st PPAF came at 9mths so hopefully yours is just around the corner! I wouldn't recommend charting yet as I think it could be very frustrating when there is seemingly no end in sight, or it says you ovulated because of higher temps only to drop and change its mind. As your NTNP a more relaxed attitude may help you catch the first eggy.

I did get pregs 7mths after my first PPAF but miscarried. Thats what led me to chart and I have a short luteal phase - from nursing or the MC or something else I don't know but I seem to be a minority. I am trying several things to 'fix' it whilst hoping for a BFP.

Awww and I have to say your pic of your kids is so beautiful. Although I had hoped to have another child by now I also know that the age-gap will have benefits and I see if I get pregs this year our gap will be similar as between your two and they look so superb together!!

Hi. Im Jolene. 31 years old. I suffered three years of a short luteal phase and didnt think I could get pregnant again without medical assistance but fell pregnant by accident and naturally. I am really happy and excited to be having a baby although knowing Im going it alone this time is a bit daunting and scary!

He doen't like baby food.We were thinking of offically start trying by the end of August for another baby boy.But we are not on any birth control. I am glad to see some girls from the August 2008 Club
