I am currently bf'ing my toddler (13.5 months), and I just got my period back a couple weeks ago, after a 2 year hiatus.

I would like to ttc again soon....however, I am VERY worried about miscarrying should I become pregnant due to my bf'ing my toddler....I have been doing a lot of reading that links low progesterone while bf'ing to early miscarriage,and I have suffered a mc before (not due to bf'ing).

I am thinking, should I wean before I ttc again, or get my levels checked? I was planning on bf'ing at least a few more months.....but should I become pregnant soon, I dont want to put the new pregnancy in jeopardy, especially with already having had a mc.
does anyone know if levels return to normal right after weaning? (progesterone levels)
thanks

From what I have noticed (and I am no doctor) is that getting pregnant while breastfeeding may be hard because of the hormonal level. I had a horrible time with PMS for few months before conceiving. I even went to a doc because of it and she told me that if I wanted to get pregnant I was better of weaning (I didnt).

Once you do conceive even if you are breastfeeding the baby should have no issues. The only thing is that if you have been prone to preterm labor or if you start to think you're getting symptoms of it then you should wean.

There are several women on this board who have gone through entire pregnancies while breastfeeding.
