Hi! My baby girl was born 8 months ago, and I've been breastfeeding her on demand since then. I also have been giving her solids as well for a few months. (I'm not on birth control because we would love to have our children close together.)
Anyways, in November I started having cramps like my period was about to return. In December the same thing happened...I also started being bloated. Still nothing! I took so many pregnancy tests (like seriously lol )--even though I really didn't think I was pregnant but I just had similar symptoms to the ones I had when pregnant with my daughter.
January was pretty chaotic, the cramps, the sore breasts, the fatigue...still no period. :) I just told myself that it was going to happen whenever and to be patient. On February the 15 there it was...good old cervical mucus!! A lot of it!! Had on the 16th too, and a little on the 17th. It was nothing like the "similar to cervical mucus" I've been having since I gave birth.
I had cramps too, and well, my libido was insane! :) The good thing is we had intercourse the 14, 15,16 and 17. (sorry if tmi!!) We are both hoping that it worked! I even read that there were ways to make sure it's really cervical mucus ( I guess you forget after a while...) and mine was clear and very stretchy--stretched it a few inches--, and when I dropped some in water in formed a ball and just floated around. It did not dissolve.
It's like suddenly those old symptoms that I had forgotten about came back and I still knew what they felt like. :) I'm praying it works!!!!! We would love our daughter to have a little brother or sister. ♥
Share your stories about your second, third or whatever pregnancies, I would love to read them!!! :)
