Lori, Hi I just wanted to tell you first I took a test last night...and saw a VERY faint line. I did the first Response. Again, the line was very faint but..I was 11 dpo's yesterday. cd29 and no af yet. I don't want to get my hopes up yet..but will go have a blood test to confirm today. Hope you are well...are you feeling ok? I know June 1st is approaching very you have anymore ultrasounds to check on Brevin b4 your date? Talk to you soon!!.

The only other weird thing is a spike in my temp this morning. still no af and a day or so late. I a confused about the very faint line..first response sucks!!!

Congratulations oncemore! I am still alive - ha ha. No news, still nursing my now 20 month old daughter! Who would have ever thought that? Still not had AF - wonder if I should have U/S done to make sure nothing is blocked.

trying..I am still nursing my 18 month old too and congratulations to you for that it is truly a good thing..but I get my af since lo was 7 months. When do you think you will start to wean? Is you lo still nursing through the night? If you truly want to get pregnant you should get some bloodwork done to check your hormone levels...check your prolactin. I know it is hard..look at me I don't want to deny my lo her milk either..she really seems to be thriving from the bf. Health Canada recommends to years for so many reasons but the 1 that sticks out for me is that the lo's do not have fully developed immune systems till they are 2. Plus it practically wipes out any chance for us gettting certain illnesses like ovarian. But on the other hand I want to get pregnant to. My prolactin is in normal range 11.. anywhere from 3-26 is considered normal..I still haven't been able to get preggers yet though. ANyway..what is your plan Trying? and ~~~Lori..hi...hope you and baby are doing well. xo

Kristin - couldn't decide if I should post here or on the other question you posed! Maybe both! ha ha Katie weaned this week, 5 days short of 21 months. I had to have a steriod shot due to some kind of contact dermat_tis (ITCHY RASH) all over my body. They said I could not take the shot and still nurse her. I left the office thinking I would probably not make it and would probably give in. Then I got worried that I might hurt her - although telling myself that only 1% gets through, yadda, yadda, yadda. When I got home from work, I told her the doctor said I could not nurse - she WAILED and FLAILED about hysterically. I took her outside to our porch swing and we spent some time together and she was fine. I kept her busy that evening, she didn't ask again. At bedtime and through the night she would cry and ask and I would tell her that I loved her and that she couldn't and would hold her and rock her back to sleep. The next morning was hard again but I told her that my milk was all gone (as my b___bs were KILLING ME). The 2nd night was better, the 3rd night she didn't cry at all, she still woke up, but was okay with me rocking her. This morning when we woke up, she pointed to me and said, milk, gone, gone and didn't cry at all.

BTW - I have had my share of tears and DESPERATELY miss nursing her. It has been such a special bond for us. I think I would have nursed until 2 or longer unless she had not self-weaned or this happened. I do think the timing of this was okay as she has reacted exceptionally. The first night, she drank from her sippy (water) each time she woke up. In the past when I tried to "wean" her away from night nursing, she would have a FIT when she saw the sippy, but not this time. She drank almost the entire cup and drank a LOT the next day. "We" will all have to learn new ways to soothe and help Katie sleep, but I guess my little girl is growing up! Best wishes to you! Oh! BIG NEWS. Within 48 hours of stopping nursing (with minimal expressing to keep the pain down)...I started my first AF since getting pg with Katie. So...I guess fertile myrtle is BACK!

HELLO Kristin and Trying!!!!!!! THANKS for the congrats!!! I am in heaven and sooo in love with my little guy! Brevin is 3 wks old today and finally last night, he slept a 4 hr block of's been 2 or 3 hr blocks of time before this so I was sooo thankful! Nursing is going great!!! I will be nursing him a lot longer than my other three... I am not counting out until 2... but most likely it will only be 18 months, since my dh isn't too happy about any further out...but it's MY decision in the long run, and of course Brevin's too! hehehe! TRYING- I am sooo happy that your AF came back! That sounds exactly like me! I dont get AF until I am done with nursing and then it's like 3 days after I dry up that AF comes... so I am wishing you lots of baby dust your way!!!! I know how tough that had to be with weaning your dd... but it sounds like you did it so nice and peaceful considering the situation. My first... only took me and not even a pacifier or bottle... and so when I stopped nursing him (to have an AF... to get pg again)... I gave him a sippy cup of water at night and nap, and it helped too! Your dd sounds so sweet! KRISTIN- Good luck with this cycle sweetie!!!! Like you said... it will happen... it's just a matter of time now. But it's gonna be sooner than later, I just know it!!! It will be fun if you and Trying can go down that pg road together!!!! I am glad that nursing is still going well for ya! Are you only nursing at night and nap time? Or more than that? I am trying to cherrish every min. I can with Brevin, as he is my last... and we are very happy saying our family is complete! Thanks again for all the well wishes and congrats!!! I will try to pop in when I get a moment... things are hectic in the beginning, as you both! Good luck to you both!!!!!!! ((((((HUGS)))))!!!!~Lori~

Life is good!! I wish you all the best!! Trying..congrats on the af returning...and..I know how you feel about missing the bf and that being gone. I think about it all the time when I am still bf'ing and how sweet it truly is..and how good it is for our lo's. But you did a really good thing and you made a choice and stuck with it. Your long haul with bf'ing must be commended. You are my hero. I wish you all the best ttc. I will talk to you on the over 35 board Baby DUst!! xo
