So for those of you who did not read my story a couple months back...I was happily nursing my 17 month old and planning to let him self-wean when we discovered DH has prostate cancer. He is scheduled for a prostatectomy

It is not too late to change your mind. Personally I would go on clomid while nursing. Dr. Hale says it is just fine. I have done it. I second banking the sperm. To be honest getting pg under stress is hard too. I would let your baby nurse and go on the clomid. I have ordered from Mexico. You could see a RE if you want to be monitored. I am so sorry. Had your husband started treatment yet?

Just wanted to send extra thoughts your way during the difficult time.

I second Jana and Dee's ideas as well.

Thank you for the prayers and thoughts. We are planning to start banking sperm next month because even if we are able to conceive #2 before DH's surgery, we still don't want to close the door to having more down the line.

It's true, there is definitely still milk in there. I keep hoping that I will magically O and get a BFP while there is still some milk left. DH hasn't started treatment yet. It will start in late June or early July but we really can't delay beyond that. I will do some more research on clomid. Mr doctor was very open to it when I suggested it last week. He is supposed to call today or tomorrow so I will talk to him about it then...

Thank you, I'm definitetly researching their ideas. It would be a dream come true to still be able to let DS self-wean.

I just wanted to send you some (((HUGS))) ktanith. I hope you that it will work out that you can continue to nurse on Clomid.
