Hi all, right now I'm at CD19, but I'm technically not TTC. Normally, my cycles are 26/27 days, but sometimes 24-25, and less frequently 28-29. My point being, I don't know when I ovulate because I'm not tracking (CM, temps, etc) and my cycle could be short, long or normal (for me).<br><br>
This month on cd10 we did not use protection or withdrawal. I figured it was kind of early to ovulate no matter how long this cycle was, so I didn't think anything would come of it.<br><br>
But this weekend, my BBs were really sore. They normally get tender mid-cycle, but it was more than usual. <b>The big thing though, is that they leaked a bit of clear/white fluid for a few days</b> That is not normal for me either, though it also seems too early for that to be a pg symptom. It was only 5 days after we DTD.<br><br>
So is this just a new symptom of ovulation, a possible pregnancy, or something I should get checked out!?<br><br>
(BTW, I wouldn't be <i>too upset</i>, if I were pg <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> )

I'm not sure about the leaking nipples.<br><br>
But, u could very possible be pg...because ur cycles are a bit here and there (which is normal) you could have O'ed early and also sperm can stay alive in u for at least 2 days. So even if u O'ed on CD 12 they could have been there waiting to fertilize ur egg. And very sore breasts are the first sign of pg that I get.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> Take a HPT in a few days.<br><br>
Good luck!

Yea, I figured the possibilty is real... I always get myself hopeful in these situations, but I think this time it really is more likely then ever. My daughter was a surprise "withdrawal" baby too, so I'm always hoping for another "surprise"<br><br>
The breast leaking is so weird to me, it looks just like breast milk, but only a drop or two.<br><br>
Thanks for replying!

It could be a sign although from what I know, that would be pretty unusual. I've actually read that that kind of fluid production might mean an overbalance of the hormone prolactin in your body, which might actually suppress ovulation. Since you don't chart, it would be hard to know if that's the case, but it might be something to keep in mind if you aren't pregnant right now, and have trouble once you try. Good luck! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Thanks, you are right, I came across that info recently that high prolactin could inhibit ovulation.<br><br>
I think that may NOT be the case...I spotted a <i>tiny</i> bit of pink this evening, and then nothing else so far. Its CD21, perfect timing for implantation, but if it is AF, that would mean a 20 day cycle, and I have NEVER had anything shorter than 23 days.<br><br>
Hmmm, I am getting a bit nervous now <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> My partner is not going to be thrilled to say the least, and while I really want another child (and want one now) I am set to start nursing school in September. This baby would be due right between semesters. So while that makes it more manageable, if were I to proceed with school, I think my best decision would be to defer my admission for a year, which would really make me sad <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">:

Naima,<br>
It's so hard to plan for this stuff, isn't it? We are ttc even though we might end up with a baby right in the middle of my PhD... on one hand, I want the timing to be perfect. On the other hand, I'm ready for a family! Let us know what happens. Sounds like something's up!

Yes timing is hard, I think we'd be living in a <i>Children of Men</i> world (a barren world, if you haven't seen the movie) if everyone waited for the perfect time. I hope the timing works out for you!<br><br>
(BTW, I'm Sarah, my daughter is Naima)
