It is! Everything changed after having her. After my son I went back to normal right away. Don't want to even imagine how I'll be after the third. Lol

LOL I always wonder that. I've given birth twice being that the oldest is my step son. So I wonder what a 3rd birth will do. Like my stomach after first went right back to normal. After second, I've looked pregnant for the last 15 months :( It's so dumb. I cramp worse now then before too.

Yeah ik about the 3-5 day rule but I always feel like I may miss it ya know. Miss when I ovulate or something. I don't have any OPKs. I only have a fertility test I got for free in one of the first response kits. I've never used an OPK before. How much r they? We r trying to really save money so I hate having to spend money on things like that.

Ah gotcha. They may not help this cycle but I get them SUPER cheap off amazon.
Watch for fertile CM. And remember that left over semen looks a lot like EWCM, the difference is the semen should go away by the next night and will be cloudy. Also it won't stretch as much. The EWCM is just like egg whites CRAZY stretchy and clear :) Even if it's clear and watery that's fertile and usually before O so you can catch it then too. I just didn't want you to feel bad if you missed a day or two in the 10 day period is all.

No problem! With my daughter we tried for 17 months so I learned a lot because I am a know it all. I can admit that lol. But I like knowing what can happen and what to expect. Charting helped me to realize I wasn't even ovulating.

Yep you can do it whenever you want.



With this one we just did it cd 15 and 17 (that week) and I didn't O until cd 19. Hubby works too much and sometimes is out of town for us to do it all the time.
