Have you ever gotten any negative feedback when people learn you are TTC while breastfeeding?  If so, do you have any good responses or comebacks?

Yes, and they can stuff it!  Even DH thinks your body can't handle both, but I always say that if it (and God) allows it, then it's alright.  I'm really hoping to get a chance to prove them wrong soon!

BTW:  I think I finally had a real period last month, but I wasn't temping, so I can't be sure.  Still, I had the typical PMS symptoms some time after increased CM and possible EWCM, and I had a long bleed - about 6 days, which is usual for me.  But over Christmas break, I was at our other home and sleeping with the baby.  Now, I think my cycle slipped back, because I haven't had the proper build up of CM;  it's spotty - wet on some days, others not.  Can this kind of thing happen?  We're back on schedule now with trying not to co-sleep as much.

Your cycle could have been a bit out of whack with switching up your routine. Where you nursing more than normal? I bet you'll see it bounce back again to your regular cycle.

Hi, and thanks so much!  Well, I appear to be heading into Period #2.  I have sore nipples when DS nurses, and yes, over break I was nursing more.  What is odd is that a few days ago I had a brief patch of EWCM!  Why would that be if I should be getting my period any day now?  I have to get back to temping....
