My name is Meghan, and I just had my LO Dec 15th.
I'm EBF, but we will be trying for baby #2 as soon as my period returns.
I've half assed charted in the past, and totally feel like a fish outta water with charting while breast feeding.

I also am wondering if my fertility is returning sooner rather then later.
A few days ago, I had cramping (which felt exactly like the pain I usually had when I ovulated), and then noticed a day where I had EWCM. Of course not really thinking about it, this day was the day that I finally caved and DTD with hubby for the first time since my daughter arrived.
Have I just thrown myself into a TWW?

If you are EBFing (no pumping, no bottles) - then the chance of ovulation/conception is extremely low. Any mucus or spotting that you see up until 56 days post partum is just part of your lochia, it's not actually related to fertility...if EBF.

If you have been giving baby any pumped breastmilk though, then the chance of ovulating is higher. Consider any mucus and/or spotting potentially fertile.

It's common for BFing Moms to have infertile discharge that is a lot like cervical mucus. To determine if you've got that, it's really best to work with a charting instructor. You'll save yourself a lot of confusion that way!

Does it make a difference I'm frequently going more then 5 hours between feelings? Especially at night.
