Question Mom of 3 and AF is late.. Oh no.

I am trying to not freak out. I'm 2 days late.

I'm a mom of 3 kids. My oldest daughter will be 5 this October, my son will be 4 in November and I have an 8 month old baby girl.

I was on birth control when I got pregnant with my son but the mini pill failed. I'm breastfeeding and I didn't want to do that mini pill again. So we figured to just play it safe. Condoms, pull out, no sex.. lol. Well we have a few times.

This time AF didn't show until I was past 6 months PP. Yay. That was a first. It has been like clockwork. Every 28 days. I'm late. Not by much. A couple days. I always found out I was pregnant before I was even late. Either by just knowing or test.

I cannot tell DF. He would seriously die. So I will wait. BUT the kicker here is our wedding is in August. My dress won't fit if I am. It is a corset style mermaid dress. I'm going crazy.

Our families will kill us if we have another baby. lol. I would be fine with it, but kids cost money. It is also a concern of mine to have a 4th C section so quickly. It would have to be my last. I wouldn't want to risk it. Ok, rant over.

Re: Mom of 3 and AF is late.. Oh no.

So, this is only like only the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th time for AF since the baby was born, and you are still BFing, then it's likely that the BFing is still messing with AF. I am not discounting the possibility of pregnancy, it's certainly possible. But BFing can really mess with AF, and make you go from "like clockwork" to no AF, just pretty much whenever. BFing involves a particular hormone and the levels of that hormone are what help to inhibit ovulation. Those hormones can fluctuate, just like any other hormones and that fluctuation can be triggered by increases or decreases in BFing frequency.

So, while I would still go buy a test, I would advise you to not freak out and jump to conclusions. Of course that's easier said than done right? I just had my own scare recently and my DH got that all taken care of!!!

Re: Mom of 3 and AF is late.. Oh no.

I think maybe you should just test to know for sure. Didn't know if I should say this or not lol but I was in your same boat last week. I took a test thinking there was no way but I wanted the old test and you will start effect. Jokes on me cause number 4 is on the way. I know it's scary when you are TTA but not testing won't make it go away if you are and will help you relax if you're not. Hope you get the result you want.
