OK so my DH and I are going to start ttc #2 in July but we got a bit lazy.... and I started O'ing a few hours after we "ttc'ed" and I Oed like for 3-4 days and now I have CM still but not as much. The only reason it worries me is that I'm breast feeding I'm usally dry.I also feel a bit *Ahem* horny all the time again the breastfeeding usally keeps al that down <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> . Could I be pregnent? Argh this 1ww is going to kill me. I had this with DD. My friends say its to early for the baby to effect my hormones but I'm really sencitive so I dont know...Has anyone had these symptoms. If I am pregnant no big deal .

Okay, so first of all, just to clear things up, no one ovulates for 3-4 days. You ovulate once, and the egg lives for 12-24 hours. Do you mean that you had EWCM for 3-4 days? Is your cm still EWCM? Usually EWCM dries up right after you O, but you could definitely have other cm afterwards (watery, sticky, rubber-cement like, creamy, lotiony, etc.).<br><br>
So, if you had sex a few hours before EWCM first showed up, and then you had EWCM for 3-4 days, and then the EWCM went away, I'd say there's a chance that you're pregnant. Sperm can live for up to 5 days in EWCM, so there should have been some available during the correct window. If you are still having EWCM, there's a chance that you're pregnant, but it's less likely. Sometimes women have EWCM when they're pregnant, but for the most part, it dries up after O, and still having it would mean that you haven't O'd yet.<br><br>
When did you first get AF back? For a few months before my AF started post-partum, I would have sometimes a week of EWCM, though I wasn't ovulating yet (or getting AF). I also started feeling hormonal again at this time, got my libido back, etc. So this is another possibility for you, unless of course, you've had AF for a while and are already sure that you're ovulating.<br><br>
I hope the rest of your wait goes by quickly!<br><br>

Thanks for clearing that up. I have had my cycle back like a clock scince my dd was 8 months and she is now 20months. I know I O'ed and I had the EWCM thing when I was prego with her. Also the libido thing after O and before my AF when I was pregnant with my DD. LOL I never get this paranoid right after sex but I had this "full of life" or spark like that evening LOL I know it sounds silly but Like I said I'm probly just crazy<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> . OH well Its almost been a week and I'm still having EWCM so either I'm pregnant or this is a weird cycle. We will see in a few days....

<b>p1gg1e</b> you don't sound crazy at all. I know lots of people who had a "full of life" feeling. My husband knew I was pregnant within days. Actually he knew before that, but doesn't know how.<br><br>
My mom knew she was pregnant with me and my brother both times. I had another friend who knew each time, that night. Sounds weird b/c the egg and sperm likely hadn't even met yet, but you know, Life is a weird thing!<br><br>
I got pg on our wedding night after a WEEK of EWCM. A WEEK. So I know what you mean by ovulating for a week (or however you put it). That's what it FEELS like. EWCM for a week, who knows when the egg actually showed up! I thought for sure it would be over by the time of our wedding, but it just got stronger and stronger, and we just went for it, LOL.<br><br>
Then there was a week, then a week of our honeymoon cruise, and by the time we got home 2 weeks after the honeymoon, my breasts were two cup sizes bigger with huge blue veins all through them. Too early officially for symptoms, and yet I was having symptoms and signs, most absolutely and definitely. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
And by that time my husband could definitely feel a buzz from the multiplying cells...<br><br>
Anyway, I don't htink you're crazy at all. It's very possible!

I have a dr. appointment on tuesday and need to know by then from my ANtibiotis for my ulcer...... Argh! My Friend said she had all these symptoms also. Add dizzyness to mine as of yesterday.

piggle most people don't get a <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/pos.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="positive"> until dpo10 but one of the ladies on a ttc forum got hers at 7dpo I think. Maybe wait until the doc appt and tell them you think you are pg can they do a blood test.
