what's going on?

I'm 4 months pp and haven't had af come back. DS is ebf and I'm not on any bc. I've had ewcm for weeks now! Im really confused. Were using protection because I don't trust bf as bc. But I'm just confused about the cm that's been going on for awhile. Ideas?

Re: what's going on?

I swear, everything is weird when you are nursing. I could have sworn I was going to get my period any day a number of times, and DD2 was 18 months when it finally came back. We spent all that time being extra careful and didn't have to , then got one period and got pregnant days later.

I got af back when DS was just 8 weeks. I think it was because I got an iud. I got one with DD and got it back around the same time. But the month after DS weaned I gained 25lbs and got pregnant. So this no cycle thing is new to me!

I got mine back between 4-1/2 and 8 mo pp with all mibe. The ewcm may be your body gearing up for an af. I had those symptoms too and some cramping too.
You could take a hpt in case though.

I'm having the same thing going on. My ds is 19 months. I has one super light one a couple months ago, but I've been feeling like I'm ovulating sometimes but have yet to have another period.

You usually don't get a period while EBFing especially in the first several months pp.

For my first 3 kiddos, it was at least 6 months before I got af, and it didn't even come regularly until they were mainly on solids.

With my 4th....that was a whole different ball game that I won't go into in this thread.
