first cycle

Talking about my son and my current deal.

My son is now 16 months old. He is still nursing. Not a ton, but enough to screw with hormones. I'm in what feels like an anovulatory cycle right now... Day 10 of not-quite-positive OPKs and I feel like throwing in the towel for this cycle already. I keep feeling twinge-y but not enough. The plan is to try for a couple months and if nothing happens then head back to the RE to figure out what we are going to do.

I'm so torn. Sometimes I wish he would wean so I have a higher chance,but I am trying to cherish our relationship and not rush things. I know if we end up not having another baby I would regret changing our relationship.sorry, I'm rambling trying to just gather my thoughts.

Welcome back! Good luck with whatever you decide. But congrats on breastfeeding for that long. Talk with your OB/GYN- maybe there's something you can take that can help without making you stop breastfeeding.

Ugh. CD 33 and something like day 10 of identical OPKs. Yay PCOS.

I remember now why I hate OPKs. Still the same thing. Maybe I should just make an appointment with the RE.

Jumping in. I wanted to start TTC when DS turned a year but I was BFing and hadnt got my period back yet. Finally at 15 months I decided to wean him to see if that would bring back my fertility. I did it slowly but our "last" day was a Wednesday. That Friday I got my period (so within 48 hours of nursing). I realized my period must have been on it's way over the last two weeks when I was still nursing once or twice a day. So after a week of no BFing I started again. Just once a day to keep my hormone levels in check. But I worked out very well for us because we were not ready to be done at 15 months.

As soon as I got my period I started temping and using OPKs. I never got a positive opk (due to BFing? Idk). But I knew I ovulated based on my temps (and my BFP).

So you could try to fake wean like I did!

I should probably have my levels drawn. It seems like they are really out of wack right now. When he isn't teething he is down to nursing every 4ish hours or when he gets an owie.
