Most of us have read "Taking Charge of Your Fertility". It will change your life!! Definitely a must read.

Just strange stuff this month, so it's so hard to predict. If no AF by Wednesday, I'll test, and a little of me is hoping it doesn't show. Thing is, I'd like a kid soon, but if I wait until Spring to get preggo, there is so much more chance of me staying home longer than 6 months, and not having to do the awful pumping 4x a day at work like last time. Oh well, we'll see.
I get all kinds of CM somtimes no matter where I am in my cycle. It doesn't always mean something, especially if you've already ovulated. Sometimes women who don't normally see CM after O will see some because there is a second estrogen surge in the luteal phase, or the first part of the endometrium to come out before AF is more watery and clear.

Last time I posted a looong time ago, I thought I had gotten AF and that was that. Well, it turns out that it was just some random bleeding, and that baby is now 17 months old.
Now I'm hoping that posting here will bring on the real AF.
DH had a vasectomy early last month, but he never went back to get his swimmers checked. Yeah, not so smart.
The upside is that I've only had two postpartum periods, so my cycles aren't exactly regular and reliable yet.
In any case, I'm nervous. I'll be testing in the next couple of days if AF hasn't shown up yet. Comforting words are more than welcome!
s: I'd say it's probably really unlikely that you are pg. So that should be comforting. Especially since you said that you have only had a couple of cycles so far. It's likely that you didn't ovulate at all or you ovulated late etc. Good luck!!! KUP

since AF returned at 8 months, has my cycle been more than 28 days--and she came at day 30. Now I'm at CD 33 and NOTHING. I wonder how likely it is to get pregnant using condoms without
Why can't you temp?
I think if the condom didn't break (and you weren't poking holes in them
) it's very unlikely. You probably didn't ovulate at all or ovulated late, therefore delaying AF. When are you testing?
AFM: I can feel AF coming on. My temp is still up, but it is 11dpo and it's almost always still up at this point. TCOYF gave me a triphasic pattern today...which is weird because my temp is not any higher than the many previous ones. The only thing I can figure out is that it gave me a triphasic pattern for the rise at 5dpo...but why give me that info now at 11dpo? http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/2be681
