were you trying? How long did it take until you conceived after you started trying? How old was your baby?

  • I DID! Yes, we wanted another baby but we weren't trying, just not stopping getting pregnant. My daughter was 6 months old and EBF, no solids or anything else but mama milk. Shes 13 months old not and I'm due in may and things are fine. She's still nursing (through not all that much because I'm drying up) and I plan on nurisng them both in tandem!

  • I got pregnant while nursing my daughter. We were trying......actually it was our first try. It took us almost a year to get pregnant with my first but we got it right the firt time with the second lol. My daughter was 10 months old when we got pregnant--but still nursed a lot.

  • I am. My son was 15 months when I got pregnant. I wasn't trying but wasn't preventing either. It took 4 months to get pregnant after I got my period back.
