I will be 41 in a couple of months and working on #3
anyone else bf and ttc in this age group?
I was bf'ing ds (he was 22mos) when I got pg with dd.
she is 11 mos - don't want to wait another 11!
I'm 32ish weeks pregnant, and I was breastfeeding and conceived at 41, 42, and 42.
So conception isn't impossible for a nursing mom. Sure I was nursing a toddler, and I weaned her in April on her 4th birthday, because that's our tradition.

Hi everyone, My names
Just thought I'd add to this thread, since I just got my CD3 tests back. All my numbers were great. Especially given that I am 44...but great regardless of age. Interestingly, my prolactin level was about as low as a non-nursing mama. Since DD is only nursing to bed and once for a minute or so in the middle of the night, I guess my prolactin is back to normal.
SO......guess I can't blame breastfeeding anymore. So I stand by my assertion that if your hormones are normal enough to cycle regularly, then they are normal enough to get pregnant.
Now.....my 44 year olds eggs are another matter altogether..........ah to be 41 again!

Me, me, me! There are more of us old folks over on the "ttc while breastfeeding" board, too. ; )
You are still young.....I had babies at 40 and 42 while breastfeeding quite a lot. This time.......seems to be a horse of a different color. We've been trying since ppaf last October with nothing to show for it but an early loss in Feb. I don't think I can blame it on nursing though....just old eggs. Part of me wonders of the nursing combined with being 44 is my problem...but I think it's just my age, really. I mean.....if my hormones are such that I can get ppaf and cycle regularly.....I don't think it's b/f's fault I can't get pregnant now, kwim?
If you are cycling.....I would just keep doing what you're doing. If you want to cut a night nursing.....it can't hurt. But I wouldn't necessarily count on it helping.
thanks my2girls :)
dd is not mad for the boobies...so maybe I will get pg quicker this time :)
