Hi I am new here...But I have been posting on the ttc board...but I am breastfeeding and ttc - so I thought may'be you all could help!

I am now 5dpo and am getting really doubtful about my chances....

I am breastfeeding my 10 month old dd all the time still and I think it's going to be really hard to get preggo doing this...I have had regular periods (my normal, pre-preggo 28 day cycles) and have been ovulating on day 14 since she was 6 months old. I have read this is odd (to start your periods up again so soon while breastfeeding all the time - they say avg. is 14 months postpartum!), but does anyone know if this means I am fully fertile again? I cant find the answer to this anywhere?!? I know I have a lot less ewcm when I do O - compared to how I was pre-pregnancy - so I wonder sometimes if it's even possible while I am still breastfeeding?

I am going to post this in the ttc forum too, but i figured you ladies may have more experience/in-put regarding this...

thanks in advance for any replies!

Hi. I got my periods back really early too (4 months to the day) but unlike yours mine were not all that regular, they were pretty whacky. [My daughter is now 15 months old and still bf'ing.] We had been not trying not preventing since September or October (and definitely not timing dtd at all) and we got our bfp in January (after dtd only once that month!).

The important things are that you're ovulating and your luteal phase is long enough (10 days+) which yours seem to be.

I am now 9 weeks pregnant and got to see my little peanut and hear that wonderful heartbeat yesterday so it IS possible. Good luck!!

I got PP AF after 3 months, but I didn't get pregnant the first time til Asher was 14 months old. So just because AF has returned it may take a while for your fertility to return. It's all so unpredictable when breastfeeding. Wishing you lots of luck though.
