Guys...it finally happened.
After nearly 19 months...I finally got my first postpartum period.
I have no idea if I'll be ovulating or not but just like that...I'm convinced that I can at least ovulate ONCE on my own and I'm back in it.
The thermometer is out.
The Clearblue Easy Fertility Monitor is out.
FertilityFriend has been reactivated.
Yeah...I'm all in.
I have never been so excited for a period in all my life.
Of course I have convinced myself that I will be pregnant in no time, like oh a NOVEMBER BABY how quaint! Because after all my problem has always been ovulating...not getting pregnant.
I have also convinced myself that I have one maybe two ovulations in me before the oves get all cysty again. So...it's now or never.
But one period does not ovulation make!
Yeah...tell my brain that.
It's not listening. All it can hear is PERIOD = FERTILITY.
IRONICALLY as much as my body is telling me to make more babies the thought of a newborn still makes me want to throw up.
I want more CHILDREN but I do not want to do that whole newborn thing again.
I cringe when I see mamas with little tiny babies now, ESPECIALLY if they've got an older one in tow. Can I really go through that again?
I KNOW that the newborn period was/is extremely short and only a year and a half later my kid is really cool and he's a PERSON now and not a screamy little blob...but really...can I skip that part?
Look at me, I'm talking like I'm pregnant already.
ONE STEP AT A TIME GIRLFRIEND.
So, temping...I've found my temps to be extremely high, especially for the follicular phase, 98.1 this morning on CD1. Two factors, it's a new thermometer and I'm nursing, could be affecting this but I'm curious...Anyone else find their temps to be completely different when they went in for Round #2?
I'm used to pre-ovulation temps being very low 96.8-97.1, any thoughts? This is like starting all over, I feel like such a newbie!
