Fertility Shopping =)
Ok, WHY is it so hard to find anything to increase fertility while breastfeeding? Online research has led me mostly to 2 answers. "If you're not ovulating yet, you're trying again too soon, you probably have 5 kids already, all 2 months apart, so just stop now," and, "Absolutely nothing is safe to take while breastfeeding except a regular multi-vitamin, bread, and water so if you want to take any sort of medication or supplement, you must immediately wean." After hours of research, I finally found some info and we're going shopping tomorrow to pick up some stuff. Hopefully it will get my period back on track. At least it will make me feel like I'm doing SOMETHING. I know 4 months doesn't seem like a long time to be trying for another baby, but it does to me. Especially when I haven't had a single period in that time. I feel so hopeless. I always thought the hard part would be to space my kids out far enough. I never dreamed I'd be nearing my daughter's third birthday and not have our second on the way yet. I got my period back when she was 14 months old and I'm starting to wonder if I will get it back 14 months after this miscarriage. If that happens, well, at least I'm halfway there... In the mean time, can't wait to go "fertility shopping" tomorrow!
