    Default TTC and breastfeeding

    Does anyone know about conceiving while still breastfeeding? I got my first period 8 months after the birth of my first. It was only spotting and very light. On day 14 & 15 I had ewcm. I didn't get another period, but 28 days after I got ewcm again (as if my cycle had been normal). The following week I got it again just for a day. Now this week I have had HUGE amounts of ewcm for 3 days. Sorry if this is TMI but I can literally feel it falling out of me. Just wondering if this is a sign I'm ovulating again or maybe it's just hormone imbalance. Does anyone know what it means to get so much so often? It's now nearly 11 months post partum and we want to TTC again. I'm still breastfeeding during day and occasionally at night once which will probably affect ovulation.

    Default TTC and breastfeeding

    You could ovulate anytime - the ewcm could be just your hormones too though. I was still BF and was similar to you and just DTD whenever without precaution. We had no luck and i had to stop BF before AF came back. That was at the start of the year and we are still TTC bubs 2 now...
