Okay, hubby and I have been trying to conceive for a couple of months. To try to tell when I'm ovulating I have been checking cervical mucus and other things. My mom, who has taken natural family planning classes and has practiced it for years, told me that without mucus pregnancy is impossible, or that is what their teacher told her. This past month I had very little (really, it was hardly worth noting) so I thought either a) I did not ovulate, which is possible because I'm still breastfeeding #1, or b) I ovulated but had no mucus and couldn't conceive.
Well, I just found out I'm pregnant so I want to know if my mom was right or wrong and why? Does anyone know if you can get pregnant without the mucus or did the very little I had make it possible?

Your mom is correct, but any mucus counts, and the most fertile mucus is super clear and almost as thin as water. So maybe you just didn't notice it, along side of seminal residue? That is my guess.
