Hi everyone-

I am a little over 3 months postpartum from baby #3.  We are exclusively BFing (on demand), co-sleeping and no pacis. same with my other 2, but they both had the binky.  I got my cycle back at 14 months and 17 months with the 2 girls.  

 

Now, I have been getting some really stretchy CM this time, no cycling yet as far as I can tell.  Is there a chance that I could regain my fertility/ cycle so early compared to my other 2? I hate just about every form of BC, but wouldn't want a chance of getting pregnant when DS is so little.  What do you think?  Also, DH and I have not tried to avoid since before DD1 was born.

I don't know but the stretchy CM seems kinda suspicious......doesn't it? Could you take your basal temperature in conjunction with mucus analyzing as a natural birth control?

I really don't want to have to do BBT this early.... darn.  It wouldn't actually help me not get pregnant at this point anyways.

 

I was just wondering if anyone had super late pp fertility return with 2 kids, then have it return earlier with a 3rd or 4th.... I know it can be different each time, but seems like it follows some kind of pattern, right?

I don't remember exactly, but I feel like I had months and months of stretchy CM before actually getting a period.  I've only had two, though.  Got period back around 9 months pp with both.
