I've had a good cry and feel better for it. Amazing how we bounce back eh?

But then there's the cost involved....yeah probably shouldn't lie about BF because like you said they might give you something unsafe..

And I totally get what it's like to try to wean the LO's off booby at night. DD was about 20 months old and still loved booby. When you're tired you just want to SLEEP!!! Don't feel bad about it though hey because there are so many women who think like that! Even now, Eva still sleeps in our bed. If I put her in her own room I don't think ANYONE would get much sleep. I just keep telling myself that it won't be forever when she gets a bit older and more knowing she will learn to sleep in her own bed.
Well i'm off to sleep now!

I was just all set to order progesterone cream when I saw an article that was bad saying its a farce and could be dangerous! It said the reason its a cream is to bypass the strict safety laws for drugs and can be classed as a cosmetic instead. Not sure what to think now as I have read of people using it sucessfully (even nursing mums).

I am thinking, as you said, maybe I should just talk to a doc first and see what they say? Its free here in the UK. IVF isn't but I think the initial tests are - but they won't test you until you stop breastfeeding. But maybe I can ask about their opinion on progesterone cream?
I have a fave doc - she's hard to get an appointment for - but she told me when my DD was just a babe that - as we were co-sleeping - that 'you won't get her out your bed until shes 5' and then added 'thats how long all my children slept in my bed' and so very early on, like decided to be an extended breastfeeder, I was OK with that. I still am. Although I want nursing to end (peacefully) I still want us to co-sleep a bit longer. I kinda figure once she stops nursing and sleeps through the night it'll be easier to get her in her own bed.

*TheyCallMeMommy* :

That would be great if you think she will help! Maybe she knows about progesterone cream too and if its safe/advisable?

I used to be on an AP board when D was under 12mths but found it didn't apply so much after that age (apart from co-sleeping and nursing). Also wherever I go I seem to be in a minority with this issue. Other nursing mums seem to get pregs OK.

I'm not sure if we can book to see a midwife here (UK)when not pregs or if they will deal with issues outside of immdeiate pregnancy and birth. I saw one 'contraception and family planning' expert but she just said that a doc will do nothing until we've weaned (despite getting pregs herself whilst nursing a 3mth old).

Hi. Im Jolene. 31 years old. I suffered three years of a short luteal phase and didnt think I could get pregnant again without medical assistance but fell pregnant by accident and naturally. I am really happy and excited to be having a baby although knowing Im going it alone this time is a bit daunting and scary!
