HI

 

My DD is 9 months old. I had one AF about 5 weeks PP in which I think I Oed. I had one provera induced (could not deal with the roller coaster hormones) AF in Dec. DD is a high needs baby nursing every 2-3 hours round the clock even at 9 months. Since Dec 8th AF has stopped completly.....I see good CM from time to time but until a few weeks ago don't think I Oed. Well, a few weeks ago I had two days of sharp pain on my right side and then it let up and my temp went up and stayed up for the last 30 some days......I took two tests a week ago and after a few hours saw a very faint line with color but assumed it must just be an evap line (two diffrent kinds of tests)....waited a week and took another dollar tree test and got nothing BFN but my temps are still high!!! What do you all think......I have never had trouble getting a BFP when I am pregnant so I am thinking I must have not Oed like I thought and my temp is just high from all the breastfeeding????

My chart:

Thanks All!!!! I am just ready for AF to return so I can really track my cycles and see what my body is doing!!! I feel almost broken without AF like I won't even O again!!!

Hey Lindsay :smileyhappy: I just wanted to say hi and let you know that I really do think I know exactly how you feel right now. I was so hopeful that I would feel totally and completely done once our #3 arrived - and I did for about an hour lol......my heart aches when I see a pregnant lady or lurk the EC club announcements. It is very hard to imagine never being pregnant or giving birth again. Like you, my DH said he is done and I can't see him changing his mind. Although I keep hoping for an oops - I know that it is wrong to go against what he wants for his life too - I know he would love our baby no matter what but it would be very stressful for him. I think when you like having babies as much as we do, we will never feel truly done and always feel a bit nostalgic for it all to happen again. That said, there is part of me that can look forward and truly embrace the next stage of it all - and I have plenty of days where I can see that as the 3 get older, life gets easier in many respects and we can be open to new adventures. Just today my older rode their bikes for a big park adventure we had and I can envision the day when our #3 is there too and the whole family can ride without worry of naps and diaper changes etc. I think it is scary to envision a time when we are not all about the baby stage but there is so much good to embrace when that time comes too. I keep hoping and working on finding peace with it all - and most days still look at my children with the overwhelming gratitude that I have 3 that are healthy and perfect in lovely. I know you do that with your babies too - and I truly feel that when I read your post, you were writing my heart's story too. Hang in there and try not to stress. There is great freedom and joy in nursing my daughter freely without worry about whether or not it is keeping me from ovulating (so far it is!!!!) - I have never nursed with such care free abandon -she can anytime she wants to and for as long as she wants to and I do love not taking temperatures or checking CM etc. Part of me is afraid to get AF back as this might push DH to get the big V but I keep telling him with our fertility problems it would be a waste of time anyways :smileywink: Anyways, I just wanted you to know that you are not alone in how you feel.
Hugs, Jasmine
