TTC October 2020 Babies

Hi all! I'm back in the TTC game as of today. I just got my first post postpartum period so now I feel like I can try and track ovulation. I ordered some OPKs and will start using them in a week or so. I can't track BBT this time around because of my DD.

I used this site heavily while trying to conceive our daughter and made a bunch of friends that I still talk to. I'm looking forward to meeting some new ladies and sharing in this TTC journey again.

Here's a little bit about me. I started TTC in 2017 and it took us 9 months of tracking to get our first BFP. Our daughter was born on Valentine's day 2019 and is almost one! We want our kids about 2 years apart but know that it's not really our choice. We are hoping it will take 9 months (cycles) or less to conceive baby number 2. I expect to have irregular cycles starting out because we are still breast feeding. I had very regular periods before getting pregnant.

So! Who is trying for October babies and how's it going?

Yay! Hope to see you on the other side soon! Still BFing? If you are, at first (at least for me) it took a couple of cycles for luteal phase to be normal

@Angela18 - I am still BFing! I was expecting some irregularity in my cycles. Was your luteal phase longer or shorter then normal?

Good Luck Flamingogirl! I'll be keeping an eye out for your BFP! I'm not trying, but love to see my friends go for their next round of babies. Good for you for still bf'ing. I'm still nursing Phoebe too at 13 months.

Mine were short at first....first cycle this last baby was like 8 days and same thing happened the time before as well. I conceived 2nd cycle this time which makes me wonder if that contributed to my MC i didn’t have AF between MC and this time but hormones are kicking. PP time before last baby first cycle was 7 day luteal, then 9, then up again. Hopefully yours gets on track quick

After my first I used opk’s Before I ever got my first post part in period. My timing was great for the first egg, but luteal phase was only 8 days. Caught the next egg though and had my second daughter!
