did i ovulate? can i reverse this?

i am ebf a 5 month old...no solids. i kind of slacked off on some of the eco breastfeeding and had a few days of mucous, yesterday seemed very fertile to me. (i am not an expert here) my cervix was higher and softer and more open. today it seems to be returning to a lower firmer postiton and the mucous has tapered off again. did i ovulate? if i nurse more can i hold off fertility or is it too late? i did nurse more yesterday and more through the night. do i just have to wait a couple weeks and see if i had a period? this is my first time checking fertility symptoms....

I have heard a LOT of BF mommas say they get some "gearing up" to ovulate feeling/cycles....hopefully it was just a test run for you

I exclusively breast fed and still got my cycles back with my first 3 kids. Breast feeding does not always keep away your fertility.

I know I got my period immediately with my first two...almost feels miraculous to have gotten this far. Was hoping for a longer space though...

I hear you. I always got it back at 3-4 months.

If I did ovulate will increased nursing hold my fertility off? Even if It restarted or is it too late once it gets going?

Once it has started you are likely to start getting more regular not less.
