Rielyn was born just about 4 months ago:) I concieved her while still BFing my 21month old DD#2 almost still around the clock. I had not had a period though ect, got the first eggie:) Anyway, I know that I am 99% sure I am NOT preggo, BUT I am having these symptoms and I can't help but have the thought creep into my head!!! So, DH had a "V" in the spring, but never had his count tested. So, that is reason #1 why I would think I am not preggo. I am BFing yet again, BUT she has gone 6 hour stretches at the very least, since about almost 2 weeks of age....(guess I paid my dues with DD#2 on that one!!!) I BF on demand but her damand is even slower than my first 2 babies! I have not had a period yet. I do give some bottles. At least 1 every single day, sometimes BM sometimes formula.....I have had this super annoying backache for weeks now, been tired, headachey, moody, weapy, irritable, it "seems" like my bras are now fitting tighter around the rib caige, and my belly seems bigger and firmer, but over the last weeks holy cow I am STARVING!!!! I mean it was like someone hit a switch and I eat enormous amounts of food suddenly! Today was insane actually! So, thinking maybe PMS for the firs time in YEARS??? or could I actually be gasp miraculously preggo? Someone tell me I am being super silly to even think of the possibilty!!!!! OH and she had been super fussy on boob suddenly as well....she would start and stop and fuss in between ect.....that seems to have settled down a bit now.

Hello,



I am not sure about all of your symptoms, but I do know that with DS I went through a few month stretch of being super hungry... like eat way more than when pregnant and still be hungry!



Good luck,



Melanie

LOL:)
Honestly yeah I want a 4th but not for a few years! LOL! I just was weirded out by how starving I have been. I am sure nothing is going on, I just needed to hear from others that they have had the same increase in appetite:) I don't remember it growing like this. I suppose having 3 kids under 5 can make the body HUNGRY!
