I've had lots of wet, stretchy CM for about 2 weeks. I don't notice it every day, but at least every other. I'm breastfeeding a lot and through the night. What should I think? Should I be expecting AF sometime soon? Has this happened to anyone else?

I had the same problem - I had the most fertile CM in the first 2 to 3 months PP! Stressful! I even had a few "spotting" episodes at 3ish months PP.

As it is I am 9 months PP and still haven't gotten my first PPAF. I do have a continuous CM pattern, but it is not very "fertile" more of a stretchy sticky :p TMI - I know!

If you fit into LAM - there is at least a 98% chance you WON'T get pregnant prior to your first PPAF. You can google if you want all of the info - but here are the highlights;

*Baby has to be younger than six months
*Baby has to be getting ALL his nutrition from your Breastmilk - no water, formula or other food
*Feed baby at least every 4 hours during day and at least every 6 at night
*You have not had a PPAF

Lack of ANY ONE of these things make it less effective.

HTH!
