Just wanted to give an update to anyone on here who might remember me. There's so many new people and only a few from when I was on here!

I just had my 2nd little boy about 2 weeks ago! Just to let you know it is possible to bf AND get pregnant! I got my PPAF at 9 months and tried until we got pregnant at 21 months PP. DS was only bfing 3xs. Once in the morning, once before naptime, and once before bedtime with a middle of the night one thrown in there every now and then. I also was taking calcium and b-complexes. I got a LOT of support on here and that really helped, esp. when I'd test and get a negative.

I'll probably be back on here after I get PPAF which hopefully won't be for awhile, but I'm hoping I won't see any of you guys! =)

GL, I'm sending lots of baby dust!!

DS#1 absolutely LOVES his brother and I can't go into his room or see him w/o being asked "Where's the baby?". There's times where he loves him a little too much and I've caught him trying to pick up and hold Eamonn w/o me. He does a good job holding him, it's the putting down part that unnerves me b/c he'll just let go. But he's learning and I couldn't ask for a better reaction to a baby. They're both doing great.

Around 12 weeks Lonny slowly stopped nursing. I dried up and I thought we'd just work through it, but he'd suck, get fed up, and ask for crackers and water. After a couple of days I just didn't offer (not refusing if he asked) and he never looked back. He doesn't even ask for it now, it's like he doesn't even remember what that is. So it's been bittersweet b/c he's so much more a daddy's boy and really could take or leave me. But I'm hoping to tandem nurse w/ Eamonn next time around!
