So here I am 5 months post partum ready to TTC baby #2 and I'm completely discouraged. First AF pp was Dec. 6 and I'm due to get AF tomorrow which doesn't seem to be anywhere in sight. I'm breast feeding so it's kind of tricky.
I took a HPT last week with 4 FRERS a got nothing but BFNs. I decided to buy a Clear Blue Digital OPK and started it today.I have a feeling this is going to be a long journey!

Hi! I'm in a similar boat except I had to wait 10 mos for AF to return for me. Just had it Christmas day, lasted 7 days! Hubby and I started BD on the last day and will be BD every day til I get a positive OPK and then we won't do it til after because we are hoping for a girl... fx! I have no idea what to expect from my cycle PP because I have heard it can be drastically different and I am also still nursing. I tried to chart before AF came back, about a month and a half ago because I started having lots of CM signs of ovulation but then no AF and lots of crazy temps because of getting up 1-3 times per night to nurse... now I'm trying again but he still gets up, and I am hoping OPKs will help out. Don't be discouraged!!! I was starting to freak out when it was taking so long for AF to return but it will happen when it is time, #2 included here to embark on this journey with you! Best of luck and here's to a short stay!

TTC and BF is a mixed bag. Your prolactin levels are up and therefore Ovulation is harder for your body but not impossible. It's similar to dealing with a body after BCP. Your body is trying to figure out what it is doing.
Natural child spacing is 2.5 years... So it may take you a while.
I wouldn't be discouraged yet! Its still so soon!

I'm going to keep my fingers crossed that I get my BFP. I wonder how many of us will be in the same DDC.
I'm hoping to be in December or January's. We will see!!!

I'm addicted to POAS. I can't even lie. I want to have them close in age.
My son is just everything to me and want to give him a sibling. We are trying for a girl but would be happy with a healthy baby.
I'm heading out to pick up a few more FRERS before the end of the week. That darn witch really has bad timing. Crap! Hang in there.

I was one of those women who had AF return immediately, even though I exclusively breast fed! So it is definitely possible to ovulate when you are EBF, though some women can't until they wean.

I buy the internet cheapies to save on money, though they aren't quite as sensitive as the FRER's. I think I got 25 of them for $7 or something like that....
