Re: LAM, EWCM and other acronyms

Glad you got the answer you wanted! If you weren't temping, it's also very possible that you got +OPK without ovulating, but I still wouldn't risk it if you're not prepared for another so soon.

We follow all the rules for LAM and meet the criteria for eco BFing, too, and I tend to get EWCM on and off from 4.5 mths until AF returns at 6mths. I don't actually ovulate until my 3rd cycle PP (and then my LPs are truly dismal until I stop BFing). I start charting again pretty much immediately--usually within 6-8 weeks after the birth, so I'm confident in my case, but I still won't chance it, just in case it ends up different this time.
