Well, as I sort of expected the old hag has made her appearance. I am disappointed, but I pretty much knew I wasn't pg. I didn't _feel_ pg, and with DD I knew immediately that something was different. I wasn't temping or charting last month, and my old 27-28 day cycle seems to have extended to 30-31 days, so I probably didn't o when I thought i did. I am still bf'ing DD, so that is probably playing a part, too.

So, here I am at CD1 waiting for AF to leave, so I can wait to O, so I can start the 2WW! So much waiting! :)

I know the feeling. Last month I ov a bit early and didn't have an OPK kit with me on time. So that was a wash.

Stay positive and look forward to next ov. If you can, begin testing with opk a bit earlier.

Good luck and plenty baby dust your way!

Yeah BF'ing can definitely mess with your cycle. I am sorry this month wasn't a go :( Keep your chin up, we are supposed to be our most fertile after giving birth-its bound to happen for you!

By the way, I am not bf'ing but have a 4 month old and I know I cannot rely on temps since I am waking at all hours and not getting that consistent 4 hours of sleep before testing time, so I bought the OV watch. You start wearing it on the second day of AF and it tells you when you are going to OV. Don't know if you would consider it, but thought I would throw it out there.
