Hi all. My Dh and I are starting to TTC again. Matthew is still nursing, maybe 4-6 times a day. I got my AF back when he was 11 months and I've had two AFs. I got a positive OPK today (I usually O the day I get one) so we went for it.
I am just wondering if BFing will interfere with me getting pregnant in any other way other than preventing ovulation? Like if I ovulate do I have the same chances as if I weren't BFing? Does BFing decrease the likelihood of an embryo emplanting or increase the risk of a miscarriage?

I don't want to wean, but we do want our kids fairly close in age and I'm a little concerned that it may take awhile as it is, since it took so long (and a little help) to get preggo with Matthew.

TIA!

During the first few post partum cycles, it's not unusual for the Luteal Phase to be short - especially if BFing. That can make it more difficult to sustain a pregnancy, but it doesn't automatically mean you'll miscarry either. Everyone's different. Were you tracking ovulation during the last 2 cycles to see where things are at right now?

Woohhooo Shannon!!! We've just started TTC too. I don't think BFing would interfere with any of that. GL hun!!

Nope I was not tracking it and really didn't even chart this cycle either.

I think I am getting I got a faint bfp today. I will retest in the morning. So if I have already gotten to the bfp point, does that mean that the pregnancy will likely "take" and not be miscarried? If I get a positive tomorrow, I am going to call my Dr and see if I can have a blood test and have my progesterone checked.
