  1. Re: 29 1/2 months and still no period..normal?

    Just thought I'd post a quick update on this. I still don't have my period but I ovulated the day after I posted this, so AF isn't too far behind. Go figure. I must've known "somehow." :) Thanks...
  2. Re: 29 1/2 months and still no period..normal?

    Pretty sure I'm not pregnant, as I haven't gained any weight but have lost weight and no other symptoms. The HPT was 2 weeks after intercourse so it should have been enough time. Guess I could take...
  3. Re: 29 1/2 months and still no period..normal?

    I'm not using any form of birth control but, as much as I hate to admit it, we haven't had sex since July and I spotted in August for the first time. I also took a HPT shortly thereafter and it was...
  4. Re: 29 1/2 months and still no period..normal?

    No, I'm not taking anything at all. In fact, I had an oversupply until DD was about 15 months old. What would be the benefit of knowing that my prolactin levels are high? Or, more importantly,...
  5. 29 1/2 months and still no period..normal?

    My DD is 29 1/2 months old. She nurses at naptime, bedtime, once or twice during the night, and upon awakening. When I work three days a week, I pump during lunchtime, though I get very little milk...
  6. Re: "No food or drink after midnight?!?!?"

    DD just had a cleaning and x-rays, and she did it with no fear at all. She was absolutely wonderful and was able to sit still for the x-rays on the first try. So I wonder how she'd do with just gas...
  7. Re: "No food or drink after midnight?!?!?"

    The dentist's office just called me back and said up to 6 hours before the procedure, which is scheduled for 9. That's better than nothing, but I still may push it to 4 hours without telling them...
  8. Re: "No food or drink after midnight?!?!?"

    Laughing gas may be an option... The dentist suggested sedation because it will give her amnesia for the event, be less "traumatic" and, thus, prevent a future fear of dentists. I wonder how...
  9. "No food or drink after midnight?!?!?"

    Hi there,

    I haven't posted in a while. My DD is almost 2 1/2 and things have been going smoothly for quite a while. She went to the dentist yesterday and has a cavity at the back of one of her...

    Re: Milk blister or thrush?

    OK, so I ended up sleeping with a moist heating pad on my breast. When my DD nursed, I felt something move followed by a release (what I always feel when I have a plugged duct), so I'm sure I had a...

    Re: Milk blister or thrush?

    It didn't hurt nearly as bad tonight when she nursed to sleep, so I'm wondering if it's getting better by itself. That being said, it does still hurt a little. I touched it gently with my...

    Milk blister or thrush?

    I have a small white dot on my right nipple. It is not painful to the touch; however, it hurts to nurse or pump. In fact, it hurts significantly worse to nurse. Last night, while my DD was nursing...

    Re: I miss underwire!

    Yay! I'm so glad to hear so many of you have had success with underwire bras. I am definitely going out this weekend to get sized and get me an underwire nursing bra. I just can't take it anymore....

    I miss underwire!

    DD is almost 22 months old and still nursing about 5 (sometimes 6) times in a 24-hour period. No complaints there. My problem is my bra. Until DD turned a year old and began showing an interest in...

    Re: Enough milk?

    Thanks so much for your advice and encouragement. First of all, I didn't realize that pumping this long wasn't the norm. I guess I just assumed that I should continue to pump if DD is continuing to...

    Enough milk?

    I'm not sure if I'm posting in the right place. My question is somewhat related to the "norm" of breastfeeding a toddler but also to weaning. My DD is 19 months old, and I have no intention of...

    Re: Pump weaning

    hahaha! I'll keep the pump handy for a while - just in case my boobs don't "catch on" as quickly. ;) Thanks!
  18. Re: How will this impact our nursing relationship?

    OK! Limiting just before I get home makes complete sense, but I'll make sure DH lets her drink water as much as she wants the rest of the day. Thanks again for your help! I can't make it to the...

    Re: Pump weaning

    Well, I guess it couldn't hurt to try! I think I'm afraid more of engorgement/plugged ducts than a drop in supply since I'm home w/ DD four days out of the week, meaning that DD will have ample...

    Re: Pump weaning

    Thanks for the link. That tells me how to wean, but it doesn't tell me when to begin weaning. I'm not sure if there's a guideline out there, such as "when your LO is nursing only 5 times a day on...

    Pump weaning

    My DD is one year old. On the days that I'm home with her (4 days/week), she prefers to nurse over taking solids and typically nurses 8-10 times/day. When I'm at work on the other 3 days, we are...
  22. Re: How will this impact our nursing relationship?

    Thank you so much for the encouraging experiences! We do co-sleep most nights, and I do allow her to nurse freely when I'm home with her. Ideally, I would like to wean her from the bottle (don't...
  23. How will this impact our nursing relationship?

    DD has never been a big fan of the bottle, but DC has always been able to get her to take about 8 ounces by popping the bottle in her mouth as she's falling asleep. DH is off for the summer, so DD...

    Re: How much in each bag?

    I was advised to store in 3- to 4-oz quantities. I wasn't convinced since I used to pump out a lot more than that, so I weighed DD before and after a feeding. Sure enough, she tends to consume...

    Re: Transition to cup at daycare

    Thanks for the response. I've spoken to enough breastfeeding moms to know that my DD's slow start to solids is normal for breastfed babies. I used to worry about the amount of EBM she was taking at...
