any update? came looking for same kind of stories...
I was never regular pre-children. Only had one period between each pregnancy. And now for once I can actually be having periods for a while. The last 6 cycles have been: 35 days, 36 days, 33 days, 42 days, 33 days, 31 days. I'm still breastfeeding twins on demand, not nursing at night anymore and maybe 5 or 6 times a day.
I attributed the 42 day cycle to working crazy long shifts in a high volume birth clinic with tons of hormones floating around.
I used to chart temp but have now just been using mucus method. But this cycle now is a little "off"
CD 18: very fertile mucus, in fact i've never seen it so egg-white before, so I assumed it would be a 32 day cycle considering how the fertile mucus would normally build up.
CD 24: had sex unprotected considering I was 6 days past O and no fertile mucus
CD 25 - 27: suddenly very fertile mucus again and boobs majorly painful. This is when I freaked because what if I was either ovulating again or didn't on CD 18 and was now... eek, don't exactly want to be pregnant just yet or at all, not sure yet.
CD 30: slight spotting, thought my period was about to start (even went home and boiled the Diva cup). No period. And then I freaked again... maybe implantation???
CD 34&37: negative pregnancy test
so today I'm on CD 40: whether I O'd on CD 18 or CD 25, I should have my period by now. Should I test again tomorrow? Thing is every positive preg. test I've taken, I always get a positive by 10 days after conception.
note: the cycle I conceived twins would've been a 35 day cycle. I thought I ovulated on CD 15, so we DTD. 7 days later thought I was ovulating so DTD again and that's when the twins were conceived. Identical twins so not double-ovulating that I know of. what is going on with me!?!?
