Hi Ladies, I am new to this but I have read some great threads and am hoping for some advice. I don't know all the abbreviations people use but I will do my best.  I am ttc#2, my first is 13months old. She has always been breastfed (no pumping) and was slower on the the solids thing. But she has been eating three good solid meals a day since 11mo old now and only breastfeeds 3x/day (7am, 1pm and 7pm), sleeping through the night since 6months old. So my period finally returned 3 months ago.  I have gotten three periods, all 35 days apart (Oct 16, Nov 20, Dec 25th). Periods are 3-4days long.  I have also gotten mid cycle spotting every month (which I had never had before) around day 12-13ish, just for about 24hrs, very light. I have also had lots of eggwhite, sticky CF for about 5days following mid cycle spotting.  This month I decided to get more serious about the O tracking and not just having sex around the eggwhite CF days. I have pee'd on the clearblue easy digital opk sticks every day now since day 13 (as soon as my mid cycle spotting stopped).  I am now on day 22 of my cycle and still no positive result for O from my opk. I am not going to ovulate? have I not been ovulating at all these last three months due to my breastfeeding? I feel like my breastfeeding is pretty minimal as she is a toddler now (and i would prefer not to give up bfeeding altogether).  For background I am 34 and I had no problem ttc#1, got pregnant on my first attempt. I don't have any medical issues or any other odd things which should be interfering. I eat healthy, exercise, and i am healthy weight. any ideas? thanks so much!!
