So I'm having a weird cycle, but I don't have time to post much about it, so I just want to ask, anybody ever spotted when they ovulated? Cuz I appear to have done that yesterday, and I never have before...very light spotting.
I was kind of hasty to assume it was ovulation I believe, I just was looking for an answer to why I was spotting I think...I'm all over the place and have no idea what's going on with my body lately actually...I really didn't even expect to have had my first postpartum period yet...*sigh*
It's really normal for things to be a bit wacky while you're nursing. You can have spotting as a result of rising and falling hormones while your fertility tries to return, even if you don't ovulate. Do you have someone who can coach you through your charting and how the rules work during this transition?
The coach who I initially met with has moved and I have no new coach...after my last kid I was sort of feeling lost until I had my first postpartum period (because I wasn't experiencing what other people told me I should be while bf'ing) and then I had my first postpartum period and it was all pretty obvious to me. This time I had my first postpartum period
IMMEDIATLY (6.5 weeks, only like 2.5 weeks after my post partum bleed stopped! GRRR!) and since then I've had cm that seems fertile to me pretty much every day...not sure at all what to make of it and totally looking for help figuring it out...I'm looking into the online help I saw mentioned in the article you gave somebody.
Good! It's very normal for breastfeeding Moms to have constant infertile discharge and it can even seem very much like fertile mucus. Having a teacher who can help you sort out what is fertile and what isn't will likely make this all less confusing for you! Hang in there!!!
Thanks, I hope I can pinpoint o from temps or something this cycle and that by next cycle I'll have a teacher, cuz dh'll freak if we have to abstain for like 3 cycles or something, especially since I'm on CD 27 and fairly certain I haven't o'd (temps are still low too).
