Peardrop - age 33, TTC cycle #9, DS is 26 months (stopped bf soon to be 4 months ago). Af returned when DS 14months, currently on CD14 and have had 4 flashing smileys. Praying for a static smiley tomorrow! Dangling legs in air!

AvaAmulet, 35, DD is 26 months, been ttc since DD was 6 months, AF returned at 16 months, temping and opks confirmed that I have definitely been ovulating for the last 6 cycles, we co-sleep and I'm pretty much still feeding my little madam on demand, though we have cut down massively. But we're still feeding too often, methinks.... hmm

Currently on a ttc hiatus (for the sake of my sanity grin) AF due 24th July then I'll be back on the crazy poas, temping, obsessively-googling bandwagon wink x

late thirties
1 DC 16 months.
Ttc since DC was born around 6 month old, cut back dramatically in December to bring on AF, stopped bf altogether in April after still no luck, irregular cycles and 6day long LPs. tried all "supplements" to regulate cycles Referred to fertility clinic in July was given femara, hcg shot, progesterone for this cycle. Currently 9dpo which is the longest I've gone ever so xf that this is the start of a new era and that I'm already pregnant too! grin
Thanks for the thread pear. Should probably fill the other one first?

MinisMama, 27, DS is 21 months. Af returned when he was 10 months and we've been ttc since January although it was "relaxed" until March! We co sleep and feed on demand still although he has naturally cut back a bit recently he still has a lot! Been using opks but not temping to confirm ov as I keep forgetting! Ds is a clomid baby after we were told we'd need IVF due to both male and female factor infertility, although the big issue was the male, so really I'm hoping for a miracle and torturing myself in the process grin

Currently cd10 with ov sticks at the ready to start in a few days!

waxweasel Sun 19-Jul-15 08:27:16

Waxweasel, 29, DD is 24 months. only on cycle 2 of TTC, AF came back when she was 15mo. We've been gradually weaning over last 2 months and think we may finally be there - last feed was about 10 days ago, and we've been averaging a feed a week for a few weeks.

On 2dpo at the moment, so just starting the 2ww! AF due 1 Aug....

Thanks for the new thread!

Leamice: 29, DS is 13mo TTC #2, AF sort of came back when DS was 6 months - only 2 cycles then nothing, cut down breastfeeding - nothing, stopped BF when DS was almost 11mo - nothing, taking various supplements - nothing, been to docs had blood test - awaiting results and scan appointment. Kind of put ttc on hold until get some answers, will be hanging about though ready to cheer on all the upcoming BFPs smile

Thanks for the new thread Pear!

Ispyfispi 31yrs, ttc #4, ds2 is 20mo bf on demand day and night and we've been ttc since he was 9mo but af only returned last month. Currently on cd8 of cycle 2 and no idea if/when I will ovulate confused

MinisMama13 Sun 19-Jul-15 23:14:10

Random wondering for you guys.......
How much do we think not laying down straight after dtd affects things?

LetThereBeCupcakes Mon 20-Jul-15 07:58:44

LetThereBeCupcakes, 33yrs, DS is 2.6. Came off pill in May, still BF 2-3 times per day. No sign of AF yet!

Congrats Auf

Have I missed something?

LetThereBeCupcakes Mon 20-Jul-15 08:59:17

Pear check out the end of the last thread. smile

waxweasel Mon 20-Jul-15 13:43:54

Congratulations auf!! Wow, there has been a run of good luck the last week or so - fingers crossed it keeps going! X

kittyvet Mon 20-Jul-15 20:29:25

Kitty vet 39, dd 9 months old today, planning to ttc no 2 but no sign of AF yet. Breastfeeding on demand (mostly but working again now), and co sleeping. Lurking and popping in until I start cycling and charting smile

LiDLrichardsPistachioSack Mon 20-Jul-15 20:39:52

LIDLRichard, 32, DD is 22 months. We BF on demand but not during the night, we co-sleep and I still haven't even had a inkling of an AF, so just popping by/lurking much like kittyvet...
Is it worth charting before my periods have returned? Has anyone tried?

ispyfispi Mon 20-Jul-15 21:34:39

Mini, it took 5 months when ttc #3, I only did dangly legs the last month when I wondered if my ever so slightly prolapsed cervix might be hindering any swimmers getting in. Started laying with my legs/bum raised and that was the month I got pg. Purely anecdotal of course!

ispyfispi Mon 20-Jul-15 21:34:59

And yay Auf!

Mumof1sofar Mon 20-Jul-15 21:51:41

Just checking in! How is everyone? I see congratulations are due for trin & auf smile Great news!

Leamice Tue 21-Jul-15 08:22:20

How are you doing Mumo, any sickness? How at along are you now?

MinisMama13 Tue 21-Jul-15 08:27:21

Ispy I always lay flat or with .y legs in the air after we hit the 1 year mark ttc ds and it still took another 9 ish months! I just thought the other night it's the downside to co sleeping as we don't dtd in the bedroom so inevitably I have to move and walk up the stairs lol

peardrop2 Tue 21-Jul-15 08:39:34

ISPY - yes I always dangle legs for 30 minutes

Aufwiedersehenpetrarch Tue 21-Jul-15 10:05:54

Thanks girls! smile flowers

ispyfispi Tue 21-Jul-15 20:20:43

Although dangly legs (and not getting right up to pee) gave me the most hideous uti/kidney infection last month so I'm not too keen for a repeat of that!

lostindubai Tue 21-Jul-15 20:26:08

Joining the new thread! I'm 36 and ttc dc2. Ds is 28 months and I've had regular AF since he was 10 months old. Now feeding once a day.

Not doing anything like charting yet, just seeing how it goes for now. Took over a year to conceive ds so will see if this time is any different.

Wishing everyone the very best of luck on this journey smile

Mumof1sofar Tue 21-Jul-15 23:09:31

Lea I'm 9 1/2 weeks now & getting pretty bad nausea. I just can't wait for the 12 week scan so I can finally see the little bean & hopefully get confirmation everything is ok. How is everything with you? And pear & Ava - hope you're doing well smile

ispyfispi Wed 22-Jul-15 09:36:43

Sorry about the sickness Mumo, it's horrible when you have a lo to run around after. I'm slightly freaking out here as my app has frozen with all my info on! I don't even know what cd I'm on! I'll have to go back through the last thread to make a note of what I wrote and when ��
