My husband and I are ttc baby #3. We have a handsome 6 yr old son and a beautiful 1 yr old daughter. I nurse my daughter and finally got af back december 26, 2012. But I havent gotten it again. I know Im not pregnant because I have taken 3 pregnancy tests and all were negative. I have no idea why I havent gotten af again since I am on cd 46. I dont see any signs of af or pregnancy. Any tips would be helpful whether they are trying to get af to start, websites to look at, things to talk to my doctor about etc. Thank you in advance. If you need any more information please feel free to ask.

Welcome to the board

Do you breastfeed fulltime?
Many times women who breastfeed FULLTIME will not ovulate regularly and therefore not have a period or their cycles get pretty irregular.

Do you chart your temp or use OPKs?
It could be that you have yet to ovulate so you may still be in the game

Here is a link to some info:
Breastfeeding & Fertility | Ask Dr. Sears®

Breastfeeding and menstruation ~ Your period while breastfeeding

Hope this helps!! I also hope AF shows for you and get your BFP!!

Im hoping when I get af back to start temping and if that doesnt work start using opk's. Still no show for af. I have an appointment tomorrow with my doctor and will talk to her to see what she says and what she suggest doing. Any advice on what to talk to the doctor about?

I would ask if taking some like PROVERA to induce your period would be effective/safe while breastfeeding. If she/he says that it is, then I would request it.

I would just give your doctor a quick update on how your cycles have been since your daughter's birth. Be sure to let him/her know you are wanting to actively get pregnant again.

Other than that I hope the weaning goes better and also there is a great forum for breastfeeding/weaning on this site
GOOD LUCK!

I also breastfeed my also one year old and also got my period back on December 25th haha so similar, but I had to start working full-time when he was 9 months, and AF showed about 6 weeks later. My son is an avid nurser, and I have to pump for him at work, but I think our bodies don't respond the same way to pumps and even though I was pumping enough to keep up with his needs, it wasn't the same as nursing him. I don't know if she will take a bottle from you (I know LO won't take one if I am anywhere around, just wants the boob) but switching to pumping might help. I still nurse him to sleep at night, once in the middle of the night (sometimes, sometimes he sleeps 9 hours and then wakes up for the day, when I nurse him). So right now, he is down to nursing two, maybe three times if I nurse him before taking him to daycare. Then pumping twice during the day. My first cycle my LP was only 9 days, but I'm lucky I ovulated at all. Still nursing full-time, AF may not have come yet because you still have not ovulated. That is what my first guess would be, and that it will regulate over time. Especially if there is any 8 hour period that your LO does not nurse. FX for you and GL when you start temping! And keep BDing since you have no idea if/when you will O this cycle!!!

Would you be able to tell me how to find the breastfeeding/weaning forum on here. Im new here and still trying to figure things out. I'll be sure to ask her to tomorrow about provera and see what she says. Thank you for the advice.
