Good morning, Mommies! Happy Holidays to everyone!
I am a 37 year old mommy nursing my 3 year old daughter, maybe once or twice during the day (very quick sessions) and at night to put her to sleep. I was on the mini pill for a couple of years and then tried a couple of other pills before I got off birth control completely about 4 months ago. My period returned about 6-8 months ago. My husband and I want one more child and I have been tracking my ovulation for the past 3 months. I will get a period, but I am not ovulating. Before when I was on birth control, I had no trouble conceiving and within a month or two of getting off birth control, I was pregnant. Wanted to get your opinions here. Is it because I am still nursing? Maybe the prolactin is interfering with ovulation? Or maybe is it my age? Or my body still adjusting to nursing, etc.? Hoping to ovulate soon! Not ready to completely wean my daughter yet, but want to get pregnant. I know other mommies are able to get pregnant while nursing. I was hoping to be one of them. But I have read that sometimes you have to wean completely in order for your body to start ovulating again. What has been your experience/what have you heard? Thanks for listening!!!
