uh oh

Rach said...

right!

Kerry said...

Yeah, you definitely can't. I mean, my friend didn't get pregnant, and she was nursing, so it must be true.

Ashley said...

I've been waiting for this!!

Emily said...

Well, it depends on who you ask-wives who tell tales or... my daughter who I got pregnant with when my nursing son was 7 months old :) Good luck!

Maya said...

yikes TAMN!

Mrs.EBG said...

If that's what helps you sleep at night, then nope, can't get preggo when you're nursing.

SB said...

You can only get pregnant when you're nursing if you're really really righteous and the Lord really really wants you to raise his most choice spirits. So....yeah.

Hayley said...

right....

uh oh

Jean said...

HAHAHAHA

AnotherThriftyMom said...

false. :(
You CAN get prego while nursing.

Leslie said...

oops. my mom did that a few times.

Rendy Tucker said...

Oh snap!

Shari Davis said...

Wha!!?!?!?!?!?!?

Mrs. Mordecai said...

Of course not. I think it's in the scriptures somewhere.

Annette Lyon said...

Actually . . .

The Parks said...

Well, since everyone else has already addressed your question, I have an off the subject comment to make. You totally remind me of Tyson from Survivor: Tocantins!

Kristi said...

Oh ya - I have a couple of times.... ;)

Lindsay said...

I'm confused... I thought you previously said, "my milk is dryed up ever since I stopped eating."

Sarah said...

I got pregnant while nursing!

Jennifer said...

ha, i love it. i think you are spying on my neighbors

Token Asian Friend said...

You've been jogging since the babies were 3 days old! You stopped eating a month and a half ago! And, you've been seperated from the twins for 5 days! I don't think you have it in you to nurse, much less ovulate.

So, you're good!

Claire! said...

Um my cousin did but she wasn't nearly as righteous as you are! Besides, aren't you "on" the pill because you leave it "on" your dresser? Just keep doing that!

amanda said...

You could have almost triplets!

Janelle said...

Were you pumpeen on your cruise? I sure hope so...if you miss even ONE feeding, it's all over!

Cook Family said...

My mom did. And I thought you were done nursing?

The Nelsons said...

how is you're nursing your twinsies while on a cruise? did you just pump a bumload before you left?

Laura said...

NO, you cannot get pregnant while nursing.
You have to put the baby down first.

Public Artist said...

Definately not! Good thing you gave it up to go on the cruise so lover bunz can bless your ritchus womb again before Linzii!

Grays said...

I thought all your milk dried up awhile ago...

Steve & Alli said...

Riiiiiiiight... oops! Living the nightmare as we speak- although I wasn't nursing anymore when it happened

Jo said...

Sure. If you say so. You wouldn't be the first.

Tyler and Laura Barrett said...

Oh boy, I've heard this story all to many times in the Valley. Just keep praying!

Tyler and Laura Barrett said...

Wait...haven't you only been nuzzling for like only a week!

Heidi Ashworth said...

Bwwaaahhhaaahhaaaaaa!

The Powells said...

Too Much Nuzzling with the AngelBabe! Yepp...

Alanna said...

I thought you'd already weaned your way-righteous offspring, anyway?

According to some book someone told me to read (gross, right?), if you let your kids use you as a pacifier, then you might not (get pregnant, that is). Good luck with that!

Ashlee said...

Nursing? You quit so you could starve and wear ear plugs all night. Right?

the divine e said...

as a true ebff, i'm going to be honest. NO YOU CAN'T GET PREGGERS WHILE NURSING!

burkfamily1 said...

I did, but it wasn't until my baby was almost a year old.

Melissa said...

I totally DON'T have two kids that are 9 months apart! I knew you couldn't get pregnant while nursing and so 4 weeks after bambino 2 came and my hubby got a little randy I didn't get pregnant. Because you totally CAN'T get preggers while nursing. (YOu totally don't have to wait those 6 weeks either) LIKE TOTALLY. I'm that lady that everybody says "oh I knew this lady once..."

Stephanie said...

Only if you are nursing all the time, day and night. You stopped doing that four hours after birth when they started sleeping through the night.

Reggs said...

LOLOL!! Laura's comment was so funny.

You can't get preggo FROM nursing, you get preggo from nuzzling, silly.
That said, maybe you should lock Muffin Loaf in the basement for awhile, just to be sure.

Sarah's blog... and I guess our newlywed blog that I update like twice a year. said...

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHA.

But I'd have to agree with Token Asian Friend. I doubt you're even ovulating... but then again, you DID conceive your twinsies in your fertile womb garden while you were on a strict diet of 1 shred of lettuce and 1/2 cup of diet coke per day... so maybe anythings possible.

omg. i really hope you're not pregnant again. i don't think i could handle it.

Machen family said...

I guess it depends on who you are nursing.

holly shaw said...

My friend did and her girls are one year apart so be careful

Where The Wilds Things Are said...

only if you are ovulating...

Bri!!! said...

You said you dried up. So yes, you can get pregnant when you are NOT nursing. Poor twinsies getting fake mild...sad.

turleybenson said...

LAUGHING. HARD.

the fellers said...

hahaha....yep!

Sarah said...

LOVE IT!
And yeah... I stopped nursing my first a month before my 2nd was born!

Becke said...

where's the IUD? come on TAMN, you knew nuzzlin' would bring in the bacon, right?

Libby said...

Oh, just when I think this blog couldn't possibly get any better....

DanyaLynd said...

Maybe not regular people but in your super righteous fertile womb - who knows?!?!

Sam & Lindsay said...

Totally false. I'm sorry to tell you, but you can get prego while you are nursing. Not only that but you can get prego while nursing and taking the mini pill. (Well, at least it happened to me when my oldest was 6 months old. So my 2 oldest girls are 15 months apart). Good luck!

Renee said...

Heck yes you can get prego while breastfeeding! But if anyone can handle 3 kids under the age of 1, you can TAMN!!

Charity said...

Laura's a genius : ).

Christin said...

My mom had 10 kids all 11 months apart and she nursed all of us. You do the math.

Here's hoping for your second set.

Caroline said...

my mom did!!!!!!!!! be careful!

Kathleen said...

Um, most people can't, but if Heavenly Father can't find any richus mothers who aren't nursing for His preshus spirits dancing around up there in 1980s figure skating costumes, then sometimes a miracle happens.

Stephanie said...

I was exclusively breastfeeding my daughter (meaning I wasn't supplementing w/ formula or anything else) and when she was four months old I conceived. Sad day. There's an important difference between you and me though. I was breastfeeding: you are not. So, I guess what I don't get is who you're asking this question about?

Lauren said...

AAAHAHAHA. That made me laugh out loud in my office :-)

Constance said...

Honestly????? You can get pregnant ANYTIME you nuzzle, even if you are nursing, menstruating, standing up, in a pool, on the pill, have an IUD, etc. The only way to prevent pregnancy 100% is NOT nuzzling. (I have a co-worker who got pregnant years after having her tubes tied, so even that isn't 100%)

Leslie said...

Just when I think this blog CANNOT get any better, IT DOES!!!!!

Emili said...

I also think Laura has the right answer here. hilarious.

Meghan said...

I have 2 kids that are 16 months apart. I was nursing my first one when the prego test arrived positive for my second child. You certainly can, but only the most righteous ones get that privledge :)

Casey and Jeannie said...

*SQUEAL!*

Have you started planning your next shower?

Barb @ getupandplay said...

Prolly not but TAMNers {shocked whisper} isn't birth control, like, totally against the plan??

Laura said...

A) I'm pretty interested in the TAMN definition of 'nursing,' and B) "realize" is just one of those esoteric terms that you shouldn't worry your teensy, cute brain over.

Natalie said...

Yes, yes you can, which is why I had FOUR kids in 16 months!!

Motorcycle Grandma said...

Actually, it's not "You can't get pregnant while nursing", it's "You shouldn't get pregnant while you're nursing."

Cristin said...

This is brilliant.

Kiersten said...

I hate it when there are 69 comments. It feels so unrighteous.

dharvey said...

Fer shure, you can get preggo while nursing. And, it's time to get preggo again, because the woman w/ the most kids is the most righteous. Your supposed to spend most of your time on this earth being preggo, becuz that is what women are for. So, keep busy gettin' busy with JJWT. This is the spirichal thing to do. XOXOX -- D.

myimaginaryblog said...

You're right -- what nursing mom has time or energy for "nuzzling?"

(That *is* what you meant, right?)

---
I was going to make this announcement on my blog, but this seems like an even better place for it: My baby's not even 3 months old, I'm still nursing around the clock, and my period just came back. Lucky me to be so fertile.

strongmom said...

Actually, you can get prego when nursing, and on the pill, and using back-up - its just a game of odds. I was very lucky.

Stephanie said...

Uh oh... Be careful TAMN!

Kathryn said...

Maybe this is a false alarm? Because things are all wacko from your hormones being crazy? Right? Please say yes!!

(So glad I don't live in places where this kind of reality is common.)

Jamie Boyd said...

I thought you weren't nursing because you quit eating and your milk magically dried up?

GladysIcanbee said...

Laura and the Machen family said it all.

Lauren said...

that's when I got preg with my second...

Shannon said...

Um......ha ha ha ha! Have you been raeding my blog? Because yes you can. You most absolutely can. Even if it took your unrichus womb years and years and years to conceive #1, you most certainly can!

graceandkate said...

TAMN...if it's it part of the plan, it's part of the plan! Here's hoping for another set of twins. If people are jealous of two.... JUST IMAGINE FOUR!

hairyshoefairy said...

Bahahahaha!

Melia said...

Congratulations! Your quads are going to be so amazingly beautiful. You should do a reality show. Oh, and bed rest right now for you.

Kathleen said...

OOOHHH, I just had a thought! Maybe you'll get preggo with quadruplets, and then you can really show up - I mean, set a good example for - Lynzii.

Tara said...

oh snap!

Kari said...

Be HoNeSt TAMNers, do you want to get preggo again just so can have another floating feti widget?

Mina said...

Um, should we even be talking about this in public?

Melissa said...

WRONG!

Kat Green said...

TAMN, you already have way more names than you needed this time around. Now you need more babies to make the names and babies come out even. I think getting preggo while nursing is an awesome example of multitasking.

Kevin and Natali McKee said...

That was my Mom's 4th child. She got pregnant nursing me. Shortly after, my Brother was born.

debbie said...

If they'd just stop making such cute maternity clothes...

Tara Goldman said...

TAMN...listen to me. Anyone who says you can get preggers while nursing is LYING. If you're preggie, you have definitely witnessed a MIRACLE. Rub it in Ruth's face. You're being blessed for taking the cruise. You're so lucky!

Sandi said...

Um, it MUST be the sea-sickness from the cruise, right?! Seriously!

Sarra said...

YES YOU CAA-AAAA-AAN!!!

Heart Mommy said...

I bet AB is high 5'n his buddies. Excited that he has SUper-sp..... That is way impressive. If you are expectin again, just pray it is sextuplets cause then you most def will need to do a reality... YOUR VERY OWN... T And J + some!!!

Brandon and Leanna said...

classic

Lisa--aka The Gardenweasel said...

sydney is awsome

Sarah said...

I thought your milk dried up?

I guess that's what you get for "nuzzling like crazy"!

Or maybe you're just not having a period because you're not eating. Most people lose their period due to not eating, anyway...

Stephanie said...

Grandma Motorcycle -- WELL SAID! Love it.

Jess said...

You CAN get pregnant while nursing. Trust me I know!

Kersey and Preston said...

My best friend got pregnant while she was nursing. If you ask a doctor (one who knows) they will tell you that when your body is producing milk it sometimes thinks it is still pregnant and you wont get your period either. HOWEVER, some are more furtile than others and it also depends on how much milk you are producing. My 2 cents, better safe than...pregnant too soon!

Brittany said...

Seriously though...I really thought you couldn't?! Oh dear...

Lyndsay said...

LOL!!!!!

Jacque said...

yes you CAN GET PREGNANT WHILE NURSING! Just ask my sister-in-law. She thought the same thing. I told her you could. She took a test...she's due next month :)

sachia said...

My mother was a new convert to the church when she had just given birth to my brother...he was brand new. She always puts it like this, Those mormons told me I couldn't get pregnant while nursing....well, were they wrong. She still is a member and my brothers are 13 months apart. I wouldn't take any birth control advice from mormons....:) It's not in our DNA.

Mrs. Clark said...

In a word...

yes.

The Motherboard said...

You are SO totally righteous... and only the UBER righteous do. Get pregnant while nursing that is.

tll said...

Baaaaahhhhhh!!!!! That's how #2 came along a year later :)))))

The Crash Test Dummy said...

hee hee hee Too much nuzzlin', Tamn?

Rachael Jill said...

Hello Irish Twins wait! Triplets!!

Sucks to be you babe...

The Boob Nazi said...

Question: Are people still taking this blog seriously and thinking you're real? Am I reading some of these comments correctly?

KathyD said...

Of course not, plus you have twins, so that's double protection.

momodafoxes4 said...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! Got myself a set of boys 13 months apart...yeppers...nursing doesn't make good bc...trust me!

Ashley Madsen said...

Boob Nazi: hahaha, I am always thinking the same!!!

The Capitans said...

That's what they say but I have got pregnant twice while nursing. lol

The G Fam said...

Tamners,
I thought you switched to bottle feeding?

Nathan and Dianna Wiley said...

I got pregnant while nursing, so yes...although it ended with a miscarriage.. =(

kristen said...

OMG are you preggo again!! I sooo hope so, maybe this time it will be triplets and they will all be princesses, then you will totally have the one up on stupid lynzee!!

Lori said...

My Mom did, my brother and sister are 4 days less than a year apart. =)

Diana Croshaw said...

It's hard to get pregnant while nursing... much easier to nuzzle after the babies finish eating. ;)
