Round two - wolves 2, Nico 0.

I'm amusing myself. Which is good because I think everyone else is sick of this train of thought.

My temp was up on Friday, up on Saturday and very clearly NOT up today. So unfortunately I think that this week's potential O was yet another false hope.

What I find very interesting, though, is that it was 29 days after the last time I thought I may have. So clearly something is going on with my hormones, I'm just not all the way there yet.

Stopped BFing completely as of Thursday - I have enough frozen milk to make it to that magical one year mark, and I'm taking that as good enough. Ant was not terribly pleased with me the last night we nursed, popping on and off and never really drinking much. I don't know if I just wasn't letting down quickly enough or what. So I'm not as sad about it as I thought I might be. In fact, I'm somewhat relieved.

I was anovulatory 20 months after the birth of my DD. Eventually had to do a few rounds of Clomid (after I stopped nursing) to get things going again. Horrible shit, but did it's job. I hope you don't need to go there (again?).

Also wanted to congratulate you on your better than bittersweet milestone. I'm glad you have enough milk to last to the end of the week. I do think that counts as BF for a year. ;) It just occurred to me that your son was born on my anniversary!

Good luck with getting your system back on track.

Congrats on going so long with the bf'ing!

I hope things get settled for you. I can only imagine how nerve-racking it is while trying to figure it out.

Sounds like you both were ready for this to end.

I would say enjoy your newfound freedom, but it sounds like you're being wrangled by the Ovulation Mystery. ;)
