This may seem like a silly Q...but I'm going to ask it anyway LOL...

OK..so I'm breastfeeding my 10 month old still....I have not gotten my PP AF yet. She still night nurses a few times a night...and nurses on demand most of the time in general. I dont plan on weaning anytime soon...

Anyway...I know you CAN get preggo without having seen AF yet...but is the only way that is really possible is if you catch the first egg? I mean...if I ovulate AT ALL it would result in either a pregnancy or a period right....I guess that is my real question.

I'm assuming that if I still dont have AF (and I keep an eye on my body for ovulation symptoms)...I'm "infertile" right now...is that right? I know that I can start at any time...just trying to figure out my body thanks

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.

You'd have to catch the first egg. I wouldn't rely on your body's signs if you're still breastfeeding though. I know for me at least I have EWCM somewhat often, which is often a sign of ovulation, but I had it plenty of times before I got my first PPAF. I totally thought that I was going to get a period soon after the first few times with EWCM but it was still months away. I think breastfeeding kind of makes your body do strange things still.

Thanks...that is pretty much what I figured out by what research and info I found online. (That I'd have to catch the first egg)....

I'm not really TTC...but if it happened I wouldn't be upset, lol. THanks again for your help!

I agree that your body can not always be relied on for good signs while breastfeeding. I used to could pinpoint ovulation perfectly just by cm alone. I never had any trouble conceiving and often did so on the first try even if we only bd once or twice that cycle. Now though, since I'm breastfeeding my cycles are way longer than my usual 28 days and I don't ever seem to have much cm. So I never know when I'm ovulating. I just wake up one day with a period. After its gone about 5 or 6 weeks pass and then I get another one. No idea when I O'd during the time between. Weird.
