I got my flow back around nine months post partum but I don't think I'm ovulating each cycle, if at all. I'm about 16 months post partum now. It's frustrating the heck out of me, TTC and getting nowhere each month. I'm a bit hung up on falling pregnant sooner rather than later as I'm not young.
Anyway, my 16 month babe still feeds, generally once nightly, and 3-4 times during the day. I don't want to conceive another child at the expense of her health, and our bf relationship, but... I don't know. It's hard to just relax about it.
Anybody been through similar? Just needed to vent.

Considering weaning to improve chances of conception

Have you thought about having a blood test done to see if your ovulating? My GP was pretty nieve and didn't think I would be ovulating with how much DS2 was feeding but I was, just later in the cycle than I thought

Thanks Thermo. Haven't gotten to the point of outsider opinions yet - though I am very interested in acupuncture and fertility. It is definitely something I would consider in the future if in say, 6 months,I still don't fall preg. I'm in this cycle's two week wait at the moment so just as usual.
I certainly don't want to wean or even cut back really - I'd hate to reflect back on this time and see myself rushing it by too quickly. I just wish my biological needs and mental needs could have a nice long chat over a cuppa...
Can I ask how long it took you to fall preg with your third babe - were you still feeding on demand at the time?
