My DS will be a year at the beginning of next month, he still nurses a lot. He was exclusively BFed for the first 6 months and we've done baby led solids. So, still no AF. Will I miss it? Will it be like being 13 all over again? Where one morning I woke up to blood surprise-style. I also don't want to get pregnant again quite this soon....but that wouldn't devastate me, it would be just a bit sooner than I'd planned. So, I guess, my question is, if you ovulated before your first PPAF, could you tell that was what was happening?
Hope that helps!
this time I will certainly be looking for any!
that said... I could tell I was ovulating before I found a pattern to my chart, so I suppose that isnt all that different. Even without taking my temp every day, ovulation was pretty clear by sudden increase in EWCM and sex drive through the roof... plus a few O pains.
Of course... its possible to get your first PP AF without ovulating first (some women ovulate first, others dont) so its possible to get AF with no warning (except some extreme cramping in my case, that was always obvious!)
My suggestion is just to always be prepared. I wear a diva cup so after I am cleared to use it again it will be sterilized and put in my purse at all times.
