Pregnant ??

Hi ladies

I have been reading all your posts and find them really helpful...now I need some expert advice please. Here's my scenario....

I completely weaned my 9 month ds off breastfeeding 2 weeks ago today. We bd'd that night plus 2 others the following week as we would like another baby close in age to our son. I don't know when/if I ovulate yet since I still don't have PPAF. Here are my symptoms since then....

I have been nauseous almost every day since last Friday (one week after first BD), big time exhaustion after 8-9 hours sleep, sore breasts (that could be weaning??), increased vaginal secretions (sorry, don't know the code for that ha ha!), peeing constantly, some cramps, my allergies/sinuses have increased plus some bloating. Do you think I am pregnant? I have done a couple of tests but they're negative as I don't really know when to test based on dates, so it's probably too early....

Please help, thank you so much!

Michelle

Hi there and thanks for joining us. All of those symptoms could be PPAF or O arriving as well as pg symptoms. It's so annoying that they all mimic each other. Are you in anyway temping whcih could help you pinpoint whether O has happened? Good luck on your quest for children close in age.

Thanks for your reply. Well, I was quite happy yesterday as PPAF arrived yipee..it was exactly one month after completely weaning my DS (10 months post partum)! This will probably be the only time I'm happy that AF is here but now we can start trying for #2. So my supposed 'pg' symptoms from 2 weeks ago were obviously PPAF symptoms...very confusing!

Have a good weekend :-)

Hello! I am very new to these message boards and unfamiliar w/abbreiviations, so please bear with me. I too am confused...Started having reg. periods at 5 mos. PP, but wasn't sure if I was ovulating. Started weaning my 13 mos DS about 2 mos. ago and we are down to just one morning feeding per day. Have started temping too, but my temps seem to be all over the place. Did an at home ovulation test and it indicated positive for LH. Also, having very similar symptoms to pregnancy. Trying to make sense of it all! Thanks...San Diego mom now living in Kansas City
