or anyone that can talk me off the cliff, lol. feeding babe...pardon no caps.

my dd3 is 4 months tomorrow. she has some health issues we are buried with, and part of that is dd3 needing to be on prescription elemental formula for a period of time. she started doing occasional 48 hr spurts on the elemental formula a couple months ago,during which time i pumped 10+x daily. now we know she will be on it 100% for at least the next month and has been for the last two weeks. from birth she was a cruddy eater...never nursing a ton. i have cut back pumping to 4-5x a day over the last 2-3 weeks.

dd1 nursed 4 yrs, never supplemented and dd2 nursed 2.5 yrs and was never supplemented. first PP period after dd1 was @ 12 mnths and i never had one between dd2 and dd3...had mirena in and caught first egg after removal. PP period yet. but with dd3s problems, there has been very little DTD either. last week i was really hormonal...crying...just a mess...told DH...i can tell my hormones are a mess...i bet i'll see AF soon since i lessened my pumping for awhile. we have used backup method both times since. until saturday. we got out for the first since baby, class reunion, couple drinks, and...well, you know the story, lol. we just hadn't had together time without kids in soooooo long. i had not been checking cervical mucus as conceiving was so far off my radar. yesterday (2.5 days post-DTD) i realized i had a bunch of super stringy EWCM. today, 3.5 days after DTD, it seems to be totally gone....little to no CM at all.

now i know we could have conceived, but is it normal to have EWCM at various times PP when not ovulating?

It is common for me now (in my mid-thirties) after 3 kids. It confuses me often....

In love with Dh since 1998. We created Ds (7.1.03), Dd (10.16.06) and Dd (3.16.09).

Wouldn't be the of the world...but being pregnant would sure not help when I rebuild my supply in a month or so when baby has healed up.
It's odd...I am a total non-alarmist...but I just have this weird Mom-sense that I might be.
