I currently am EBF'ing a 6 mo old who is not on solids as of yet. I have had 2 periods that were regular and am about 3 days late for my 3rd. I recently took Reglan to boost my milk supply so I'm wondering if the boost could have made it so I didn't ovulate or at least delayed it, making me NOT have a period. I have tested (this past Fri) and got a neg. but haven't tested since. I don't "feel" pregnant but do have an increase in discharge (TMI), not the runny stuff but the thick sticky kind you get when you ovulate...no odor so it's not an infection.

OP Here...Flo reared her ugly head this morning so not pregnant! I am aware that BF'ing is not birth control. My 2nd is proof of that and I was also using minipill and STILL got preggo with her. We are using condoms but those are only like 97% effective anyway. The 6mo is our 4th in 6 years and while I'm thankful for my obvious fertility, to have 3 kids in 2 1/2 years (which is what would have happened had I been preggo b/c I have an almost 2yo now) on top of the 6 & 5yo I currently have would have been hard.
Thanks for all who took the time to answer!

Next question overall
Is it better to give my baby a pacifier instead of letting him suck his thumb?
