My name is Lindsay and I am the mommy to Lacey (4.5 months). We are EBF/pumping.

Lacey was conceived by tracking... it was a piece of cake and we were successful on the 2nd month. However, now that I'm BFing I am LOST as to what I can track. I have not had AF yet nor have any signs that I can find.

We are hoping to conceive again this fall. Any suggestions?

Welcome to the BFTTC board. I dont have any advice for you as I still haven't gotten my first postpartum AF....and my baby is almost 11 months (in two days)....so yeah...I'm enjoying the AF break...it's been great!

Some women get AF back when they start their baby on solids. Which you'll be doing in a couple of months and that would be great timing....but not all women DO start AF right away...with each person and each baby it's so different what you end up experiencing.

Some of the others might have a great way to encourage AF to return though....I just know that starting solids and sleeping through the night are the most common.

Good Luck and welcome, again!

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.

You should have signs before you ovulate, so keep watching for them. You should notice the EWCM and cervical changes with it. Even if it's a false alarm, you can try during that time anyway.

Good luck!
