Hi, I am a newbie but I am really hoping someone out there will have some advice for me or has something similar??

I am ttc number 3, I am still breastfeeding my 17 month old. He feeds going to sleep, if he wakes just for a couple of seconds and then usually when he wakes. Last month I got a faint line on a few pregnancy tests and fell pregnant for a few days, my period was late. But then it arrived 4 days later so from what I have read it was an early miscarriage or a chemical pregnancy.

I am hoping it will happen this month instead, anyone have any advice??

Sorry to hear about your chemical flowers

I got my BFP in February whilst still breast feeding my 21 month old who had a feed when he woke in the morning and a feed when he woke from his afternoon nap.

I miscarried two weeks after my initial BFP and one of the many questions I asked myself was, "Did it happen because I'm still breast feeding?"

But then I remind myself of the 1'000s of women who have successful pregnancies whilst breast feeding and accept that I was just unlucky.

The best of luck this month. Me and DH are also going to start TTC again this month.

Thank you for your reply writer, I am so sorry to hear you have been through a miscarriage too . It's just heart breaking. I have read that it is because our progesterone levels might not be as high, I have been taking supplements to try and combat this. Hopefully this month will be our month smile
