    ...did you have a feeling it was coming? Did you think "hmm, I'm ovulating so I'll come on in 2 weeks" or just WHAM! Aunt Flo is here with no warning!!

    I'm just interested, I've had zero indication of any ovulation going on, just wondering if I should carry tampons around just in case I get caught out!

    I felt a it more grumpy just before, but that could have been tiredness! Maybe chuck a tam ax in your bag just in case.

    For me it was a slight bloody redness in my discharge (sorry tmi!) a couple of days before any proper bleeding.

    mine snuck up on me, as my baby is only 8 weeks... but i should have known... my nipples were a little more sensitive when nursing, my milk was lower, i was crabby. all i figured was related to my little guys growth spurt...

    I got my first one just this week, started yesterday. strange b/c I didn't have them when nursing my girls.

    I was wondering this too. So far no signs of AF for me but I am happy with that but have a tampon in my bag just incase. I have noticed that I have some white discharge again s that you have in your cycle so maybe things are starting.

    I didn't get AF back but got pregnant with first ovulation. We were TTC so I was on the look out for signs. In the 4-6 weeks before I ovulated I had 2 lots of spotting and some cramping, as well as migraines as my hormones got ready. I also had several patches of ewcm, and of course ewcm when I ovulated (along with a positive ovulation test). I also had really sore boobs when I ovulated.

    If you wanna follow your fertility before it comes back then this is a good read: https://www.woomb.org/bom/breastfeeding.html

    The first time was out of the blue. But I wasn't expecting it to come back at only 14 weeks PP. :roll:

    The second time it sort of came on more slowly. I had started to feel a bit more up and down hormonally. I was starting to get more signs of my body trying to ovulate (EWCM), then I got one month where I had EWCM, increased sex drive and ovulation spotting. Sure enough, AF showed 2 weeks later. DD was 8 months old.

    See, I've had ovulation pains, some EWCM, various moodiness, cramping off and on, days where I just felt like it was coming (and would keep checking) for months now and nothing. :(
    I carry my DivaCup just in case, but it'll probably be the one time I don't have it that I'll see AF. Probably not though as I've tried the other tricks (brand new white underwear etc :haha:) and no luck.
