    Default Anyone breast feeding, not wanting to stop but is wanting to fall pregnant?

    Just what the title says really... Anyone breast feeding, not wanting to stop but is wanting to fall pregnant?

    I'm in this boat. Not really sure how long it will take or if it's possible.

    Yeah I am!!! BF for 10m now and still going strong. No sign on AF at all and have heard it takes many months after she does make an appearance to regulate...so not looking good here unfortunately.

    I don't want to stop BF but want to start TTC no 2 as I don't want to leave it too long between due to my age & wanting to return to work one day (soon).

    Gahhhhhh.....why couldn't I be one of those women who's cycles returned despite BFing!!!!

    This is me! Still BF my 16 month DS and planning TTC#2 in June.... My AF returned when DS was 8 months old so I am hoping that BF won't interfere...

    My DH is concerned that it will, I have said if we seem to have trouble conceiving then I'll stop BF to see if it makes a difference. Considering AF is back and regular though I can't see how BF should interfere....

    Don't really have a plan to stop BF DS at this stage. I figure if I fall pregnant he'll possibly self wean as the taste of the milk changes. We only BF first thing in morning and just before bed no anyway.

    Just to give you some positive vibes - my cousin fell pregnant accidentally with her second when first was 10 months old. She thought she was "safe" because was BF and AF had not returned.... 😉

    Thanks that's nice of you but we are also dealing with MFI so no chance of any accidents here I'm afraid!!

    I am! 9 months BF, AF returned 2 months ago so hopefully one of these days a BFP will happen. I am hoping to BF DD till at least 2, so I'm guessing/hoping to tandem feed for at least a few months - will be up to DD if she wishes to continue or not!

    Gosh I am so glad I am not alone! AF has showed but not sure as 51 days on... Nothing. We want to TTC#2 soon, want a close age gap. Suits us for work and life etc but yeah... Feeling so I guess torn and frustrated to a degree! I don't want to stop BFing as I really feel like it's mean to kick DD off after almost 6 beautiful months and I know it's best for her! Glad to find you ladies, maybe we can keep this thread and offer some support. Perhaps we'll be living vicariously and with hope through you soon becandabub! Are we all TTC #2??? How funny.

    Yes i am DS2 is almost 22mths and BFs 3times a day. AF returned at 8mths, though we only started TTC #3 in January. I actually did fall pregnant last cycle. My baby didnt stick and AF arrived on time, i actually worry that the BF stopped bub from implanting properly, though there is no way of knowing. I plan on BFing to at least 2yrs, i will start to think about weaning at 2.5 if DS2 still feeds (or if i fall pregnant in the meantime and its uncomfortable).

    I'm not ttc but thought I'd share my experience. I'm currently pregnant with #2. I still bf dd twice a day. She is now 18 months. For me, af arrived when dd was 9 months. It took 2 cycles to become regular and after 3 more cycles we had an embryo transferred (we have to go through ivf as dh has severe mfi). First cycle was a chemical preg and the next we conceived #2. Anyway. I know we are all different, but from my experience and from what my fertility specialist said, as long as you are having regular cycles and you have signs of ovulation then breastfeeding shouldn't impact conception or implantation. Unless you suddenly increase feeds. I seem to remember dds feeds really changing between 10-12 months (dropping 2 feeds) so you might find, OP, that af arrives in the next few months.
