I had DD2 on June 4th. When she was 11 weeks old (before i'd had a period) i had a Nova T380 inserted (copper IUD).
2 weeks later i got pre-AF symptoms, then one day of very very light spotting. That same weekend i began pumping for a friend on top of EBF my DD, and i never had any more bleeding.
Last day of November last year i stopped pumping for the friend and 29 days later (December 28th) AF came. It was 7 days, moderately heavy (i was expecting that due to the IUD) but painless.
I didn't see any fertile mucus between quitting dumping and AF but i seem to have vague jelly-like yellowish CM since i had the IUD inserted (and it's been checked, no infection, it's just my body's reaction to the copper apparently).
On CD23 and CD28 we dtd. On CD29 i DID see what looked like EWCM, but only once (i.e. not for a few days like normal).
It's now CD38 and no AF. I have had vague cramps on and off. My supply seems normal. My nipples became very sore around CD28 but aren't now (they usually are before AF, nursing or not). My cervix is high, closed and soft right now and the only CM i've seen is the yellowish jelly i've had since insertion. Otherwise i am dry.
DP is buying pregnancy tests right now. I am terrified.
Is it likely that increased nursing (which i'm not really sure about since i don't pay too much attention, since it's on-demand) has delayed my period? I really really don't want to be pregnant right now. And i've had 4 miscarriages in the past so the idea of having to face the 25% chance of another one (if i get it removed) or the 50% chance of another one (if i can't) is scaring me even more.
