Thank you. How much am I nursing, hmmm. IDK, maybe I should buy a Milkscreen test to see how much milk I make- NOT lol. Usually, he nurses two or three times during the day with varying lengths but usually as more of a "snack." I try to always make *nutritious* solids available to him when he seems hungry but when he is done eating he will sometimes climb in my lap and want to nurse so I oblige. He nurses to sleep and varying amounts at night, mostly comfort nursing b/c of his night terrors. It would make sense if I tried to O but got shut down at the last minute this month- DS had diarrhea for 4+ days and 3 of them he would not touch solids, only nursed. Felt pretty drained exclusively BF a 15m/o but it kept him from getting dehydrated :) I understand what you're saying about the BBT telling when I am O'ing but not before. I will read up on that, I know nothing about it as is.

I have been doing it for years (too avoid as well as conceive) So if you have any questions I would be happy to answer them too. My oldest nursed like your LO til she was 2. I am so happy that I made that choice. Wish I could have with my 2nd but I got pregnant w my third when she was 1 so I decided to stop. #3 three weaned herself at 9 months little stinker.

I think its amazing you mommies have been able to nurse so long with my first daughter I nursed for three months then painfully dried up going back to work because I was told I couldnt pump except on lunch and was working 10+ hrs I didnt know then there were laws to protect me I was young. Thsn are second daughter I dried up at 2 months of nursing I tried every herbal thing I could find I tried pymping every hr seeing my lc evwrything I wanted to nurse tell one then transition to whole milk. The dr suggested the nurse who discharged me put me on a bc that can affect breast milk supply after I stricly asked for a safe one. If we are pregnant again *fingers crossed* im not getting on anything after just getting fixed so hoping to have a good long run this time if it happens. :)

I am AMAZINGLY lucky that DH makes really good money and I get to be a SAHM. So any time a had a drop in supply I would just spend a hole day in bed nursing DS. I also have never let formula be an option its not aloud in our home. I think that pumpers have it way harder. I have never been able to get my b**bs to respond to a pump so I have never left DS. My goal is for him to make it to 2 before he weens but if he would like to keep nursing longer thats fine too. I am a little worried about mood swings affecting our ability to nurse through pregnancy.
I just do natural family planning ALL BC turns me in to a EVIL b***h so evil I dont even need BC cus no one wants to get that close lol

intrauterine insemination it is a method where my SO would give his sperm sample and the obgyn washes the sperm and puts it in my uterus at time of ovulation so i would have a better chance of conceiving. yes thats what i am looking in to doing now i just have to find the right doctor.
