I don't know...

ok so I have never had to TTC and its not like we are just not not trying KWIM? So anyways DH only goes inside maybe once a month since we don't really want another baby right now but if we did I wouldn't be a problem. So anyways DH did that today...last AF was Nov 17th. and I have been having a 26 day question would be when would I O? I have never had to keep track and I was thinking about that just now and even though I am still nursing I still O we know that from the last baby LOL. So since it has been about 2 weeks wouldn't these couple of days be the ones that I am fertile? I feel like such a dope for asking this! But I don't even know what the O symptoms are! I know that because I'm nursing my odds are slim but I got preggo this time last year when our first was 4 months also.

  • If you're having a period then you are probably ovulating. Breastfeeding can only be used as a form of birth control if your baby is under 6 months, you are not using ANY suppliments (including pacifiers, water and expressed breastmilk), your menses have not returned AND you are going no longer than 1 6 hour stretch in 24 hours.

    That said, now is about right for ovulation for you, depending on how long your luteal phase is.
