Are you charting or anything? I wanted to but bf just wants to take the it will happen when it happens approach!
Just think now you have stopped breastfeeding chances of conceive if have gone up! That's what I'm thinking!

Nausea and upset tummy continues. .upset tummy only when I drink milk or eat dairy...that's what was my first sign last pregnancy too...but it could be also period coming early..
Also metallic taste in mouth never had that before. ..taste of blood...hmmm...I don't know:$
Not charting, no opk just listening to my body and going by previous o dates...let's see

Im using the maybe baby ferning microscope.

In short u put your saliva on this little lens every morning before you eat or drink and leave it to dry. If it looks like pebbles or a cobbled road effect then it means you are not fertile and as you move towards ovulation you will see fern like structures appearing until just before you ovulate you have massive ferns that cover the whole lens.

The reason it ferns is because of the increased sodium in your saliva which is closely linked to the oestrogen. So because your oestrogen peaks before you ovulate you can tell.

Its quite interesting, and a bit nicer than peeing on sticks my oh finds it really interesting too and likes to see whats going on each day.

Here ladies is my sample from this morning. You can see slight ferning meaning my oestrogen is building which is a good sign as it has to drop for AF
