I couldn't wait for AF to return so I could start charting (basal body temp and cervical fluid). I'm amazed at how easy it is, and how your body tells you exactly what is going on if you know how to interpret the signs. We got a BFP on my first cycle back (I am still BF'ing, and my cycle resumed after LO was no longer night nursing.) and are due early September We are THRILLED!
Read Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler.
I am exclusively BFing and I had my first period about 40 days before my second one came. Needless to say I was a little bit nervous about the long gap between, but it finally came. I knew I was ovulating with the second period because ~3 weeks after the first period I got sharp pains in my ovary area. I get sharp pains and mild cramps when I ovulate. If you aren't sure try the ovulation predictor kit. It was very easy and we got pregnant on the first use of the kit with LO.
I am so happy for you. How old is you LO now? My DS is 9 months and DH and I are thinking of trying again. I have a regular period since DS was 5 months but I nurse all the time ao im not sure if I have to night wean first. Thanks for the recommendation I appreciate it. I will go to Barns and Nobles today.
