I apologize in advance if this is a "stupid question" that I already know the answer to. My guess is the answer will be "yep, thats normal!" lol
so, my cycles were normal, every 29-30 days before I easily got pregnant with DS. then I got pregnant in september 2008, gave birth to ds in june, 2009. I was nursing, but ds also got about 4 ounces of formula per day, which tapered down to 4 ounces every few days, then 4 ounces every few weeks, until he wasn't taking any formula by 12months, and was nursing(as opposed to giving any formula). We did child led solids too, if that matters... DS started eating on his own at 5 months.
I had my first period in july almost right after my lochia stopped. It was normal-light, but definitely not part of the lochia.
my next cycle started january 21 and lasted 146 days,
and my next started june 16, 2010(2 days after DS's first b-day) and that one lasted 66 days
next was august 21, lasted 42 days
next was october 2, lasted 22 days
next was october 24, and still going(we're on day 42 right now)
stupid me, I haven't been temp charting :( but based on CM and position, I'm thinking i might have ovulated 2x this cycle without a period? (around day 21 and day 41)
I am still nursing DS, but only a few times per day(11am, 11pm, and occasionally in the morning if he wakes too early, and needs to sleep(or if i need to sleep and DH isn't willing to put him to sleep)
I took 2 pregnancy tests, one 4 days ago, and one 3 days ago(17 and 18 days post suspected O days) both were negative.
in addition to all the above, i've been sick for the past 28 days Nothing too bad, just mucous in throat, and cough, no fever, but 2 days of sheer misery about 2 weeks ago but bad enough to not go around newborns and young babies, but not so bad that I have to stay home from community/friend/relative obligations.
