So I have a few questions... here is the background:
I had a preemie in March at 31 weeks... she passed away 5 weeks later bc of an infection! Any ways its only been 4 1/2 months since I gave birth to her and I know the first 6 months are the most fertile after giving birth... I am ultra fertile any ways! So here is my thing:
We have been so good with using condoms well except this week and its the week I ovulated!! So we had sex the other night with a condom and he did go inside of me... he thougt I said it was safe this week when I told him the opp! I do check my cervix and it was high, soft, and open... I also had ewcm! And when I wiped nothing hardly came out! So the next morning I had some cramping and my cervix went low firm and closed... my cm dried up also! Now 2 days later I am having alot of white mucus plug like cm... My cervix is high and soft again but closed! Its not like egg white cm but white... so confused! Is it possible I conceived? If I did, is it possible to have these signs already before implantation? Its totally confusing now!!
Unfortunately, without a chart it's really hard to say just what happened and what your chances are. Usually post partum cycles are a bit irregular, so the timing of ovulation can vary from cycle to cycle. How many cycles have you had and what have they been like so far?
I had my first cycle in May and they been regular the whole time... every 28 days! I dont have a chart but I do keep track of everything... during ovulation I do have these:
High soft open cervix
lots of ewcm
and I cramp when I ovulate (which I did that morning)!
My cervix usually go low firm and closed after O... my cm dries up also...
this is what I found so far:
It did go down after O but it stayed soft!
As of this morning its super high soft and closed.... and still have lots of cm but its white and its like a mucus plug kinda thing.... so that is why I am confused.... its not like my other cycles..
Well, even when things are regular - every once in awhile ovulation can be delayed and occur later than usual. So either your body attempted ovulation the first time and failed, so it's trying again now (which is why you have all the CM again)....or it could be a sign of pregnancy. All you can really do is wait a bit longer and then take a test.
