    Default Tell me some stories...

    Of getting preggers while BFing!! Have you or anyone you know? LOL!

    I talked to DH today and am excited to say that he is still on board with using no birth control!! I am so happy. For some reason, I just "feel" another baby in our future, and the closer they are together, the better!

    AND... We just found out that he is going to be able to come home on his regularly scheduled mid-tour leave from Afghanistan. We thought that when he came home after Justus was born, that it would be the only leave he got. That meant going another 9 months without seeing him. But it's looking like the end of November right now And that is just 2.5 months PP for me.

    I know it's still awful early, and we are exclusively BFing, but does anyone have any good stories for me?

    LOL!

    Well, my two oldest are 14 1/2 months apart, so I got preggers breast feeding when DS was 5 months old. I seriously must have ovulated immediately after that first bit of rice cereal because I hadn't gotten af back yet.

    I have a friend who was bfing and her two are 12 months and 2 weeks apart.

    I guess I'll say "good luck"?!? Hopefully baby will be sttn by then and up your chances!

    I got pregnant while breast feeding my second child. She was 10 months old and I never even had a period!

    Don't tell me that!!!

    When I was scheduling my IUD appointment, more than one midwife warned me not to show up pregnant...and that was only 2 months pp! They say it happens allllll the time. There's a woman on my birth board who recently mentioned that she conceived her second at 5 months while EBF.

    I was exclusively breastfeeding my daughter and we were using the pull out method and I ended up pregnant with this one! They will be 13 months apart!

    Good luck!

    i'm not THAT quick. DD was 16 months old and not EBF anymore when i got pregnant. but a woman i know from library storytime has 2 that are 14 months apart, and she and her husband caution EVERYONE that BFing is NOT foolproof! LOL!

    My current 2 are exactly 12 months apart. Got preg with DS on what was apparently my first cycle post-partum after DD.

    After DS was born, my period came back at 3 months pp again, same as the first time, despite EBF'ing... so if we hadn't been being SUPER careful, it could have happened again.

    I didn't have a very small gap between each of my pregnancies but got pregnant twice while BF, this time with TWINS!

    I wasn't EBFing as my son was 15 months old when I got pregnant but I was nursing 4 times a day. I only had 1 PPAF and then was pregnant my next cycle Mine are 3 days from being exactly 2 years apart. I am hoping and praying I get my AF sooner this time because I am ready for #3!!
