Okay, so I was charting before I got my first post-partum period, and I know I ovulated before that period. So is it pretty safe to assume that I am going to ovulate eventually this first cycle (from a TTC standpoint)? Or is it possible/likely that I won't? I just can't believe I'm on CD22 with no signs of impending ovulation (my cycle was usually 29 or 30 days long pre-baby).

Obviously if my cycle length would stay the same this time, even if I would O today, my LP would be way too short....7 or 8 days. But my first LP was 9 days, so I was hoping maybe it would get up to 10-11 or maybe even 12 like it used to be this cycle. It's not likely that my LP would actually get shorter, is it?

Sorry I keep asking questions...I just wish I understood my body better....

I've never actually had a cycle that I charted and didn't ovulate, but that's just me...

There's a decent chance you'll ovulate this cycle, but you can't predict when. It's completely 100% normal for the first 6 post partum cycles to be irregular with late ovulation, so don't make any assumptions about what is going to happen. The reality is only time will tell.

I wasn't charting after my first baby but looking back i remember feeling the fertile CM and the dates line up w/ my 2nd pregnancy so I know when I ovulated. I ovulated before my first post partumn period and then the next month I still ovulated (obviously cuz I got pregnant!) but it was 2 weeks later than it should have been. So yeah it's totally normal and give it a couple more weeks!
Thank you Natasha for the beautiful siggy!
