I posted on the TTC board and thought you ladies would be able to help me as well. I just weaned my 9 month old daughter 2 weeks ago to TTC #2. I have not had a period since before she was conceived. The first day I took my temp I was 97.2, and then 97.3 for 3 days, and the last 2 days have been 97.5. I have not charted before. I am new the the whole CM checking too. This may be a stupid question or TMI I am having a hard time distuinguishing CM between my husbands leftovers - lol.

Any ideas or advice would be greatly appreciated!

I think it is really hard to discern between the two since they both have the same type of properties. I suggest just continue DTD as long as you have CM that is close to that consistency. You never know and it's better safe than miss it! Welcome to the forum! My son is 9.5 months old and I just started getting my period back last weekend. I am still nursing though so it could be a while before things regulate for me.

Welcome to the forum!

As far as distinguishing between the two EWCM will continue to stretch and not break, sperm will break. Or you can do the water test. CM will ball up and sink, while sperm will float.

CM is hard to tell sometimes, my problem is, is it ewcm or arousal fluid. LOL

Good luck!

As far as weaning and TTC.... it could be a week or so for your cycle to return or it could be a few months too. Everyone is different.

I have never weaned to get my cycle back to start TTC, my cycle has sometimes come back while nursing and a few times, didn't even come back after my little one self weaned.
