Hello =D
 
Well I ran across this board doing a search for "ttc while breastfeeding" imagine that haha! So I figured I'd just stop by and say hello!

My husband and I have 3 boys - ages 9, 4, and 14 months. My husband has talked me into TTC again for our 4th (he's really hopeful for a girl, I'm thinking we'll probably just have 4 boys lol) - once I decided to start charting to "avoid" he kind of sprung this on me and really it wasn't super hard for him to talk me into it lol. Anyway, I'm thinking that nothing is going to happen real soon because I am still breastfeeding and will be for probably another 6-8 months, but I'm hoping BF won't delay it too long. We started TTC our 3rd right after our 2nd was born because it took 4 years to get pregnant with our 2nd and we really didn't want another 5 yr age gap between kids. I didn't get pregnant until our 2nd had been weaned for about 6 months, so I wonder if that had something to do with it since I was having pretty regular cycles and ovulating about the same time each month which was a nice change from when we were ttc our 2nd and nearly all my cycles were anovulatory (and I wasn't breastfeeding!).

Anyway, didn't mean to ramble, just wanted to stop by and say hello!:D

Hi!

I noticed this sub-forum is pretty slow, but I check every so often. My first child is 14 months and I'm on my first cycle (got AF back about a week before DS turned 14 months). I was always very regular too, but it did take fertility drugs for me to get pregnant with DS.

I have no idea what my cycles will be now. I'm still BF too. I'm going to keep track and take some OPK's to see if I'm ovulating.

We want to get pregnant when DS turns 2, but not really before (although I'd be thrilled if it happened right away). I'm sure you know how that feels because you had to TTC for a long time too. We'll see how things go.

Anyway, keep us posted on how things are going and I hope the TTC journey is fast and easy for you!

hey all...I'm not really "TTC" but we are NTNP....which if you ask my sister IS ttc lol...

Anyway...I didn't get AF back until I was 18 months pp..we are still nursing and going strong...my first four cycles were heavy and regular-ish...they consistently had 9 day luteal phases (so unable to sustain a pregnancy)...then my fifth cycle was extremely odd....9 days of spotting...no flow at all...wondering if I just didn't ovulate or something...who knows....

If it happened this month that would be FAB...I've ALWAYS wanted an April baby...and have been praying for one since my AF started back up....not that it will happen in MY time, as I know it happens in God's time...but anyway...That's me....

Can't claim the TTC title mostly because dh would rather pretend he doesn't want anymore but then not try AT ALL to prevent one...so it's easier to say oops than to say "we purposely had a fifth child"...lol...

Martha83 I like your paragraph about vaxes in your signature :smile:

I wish I could memorize that for people who ask me about not vaxing:p

haha! this is us too! My husband says he doesn't want to "try" for a 4th but is doing absolutely nothing to prevent a 4th all the while knowing how much I desire to have another. Praying things work as God has planned for us all!! I just got my first PPAF and DD is nearly 8 months. I am praying that God chooses to allow things to happen and quickly.... although I am trying to be faithful and trusting that he may have a better timeline in mind.

Your boys have probably grown up by now. I just wonder if you had a girl or boy for your 4th child. :)
