Re: If you left spacing up to god (or chance)...

Sadly we didn't leave it in the LORDs hands until our first daughter came along. Our girls are 21 months apart. I think I tend to ovulate about 10 months postpartum, cause I have been able to tell most of the time and that's when I believe I started with each, it typically is right around when we start solid foods too. I have been trying to just be laid back and leave things in the LORDs timing but when I resume cycles I have a very hard imse not getting obsessed about getting pregnant right off lol

I would love to skip having periods and just get pregnant though guess we will see what happens this time. We are hoping for a large family and are getting older. I am 34 and dh is 40.

Re: If you left spacing up to god (or chance)...

My first two are 13 years apart, but there are other factors.

Numbers 2 and 3 are 22 months apart. Numbers 3 and 4 are 25 months apart.

I have NO idea how people have pleasant surprises - your discharge is clear and stretchy when you are ovulating. It is for everyone and you can feel it when you wipe so even if you weren't looking for signs, you would clearly notice.
Like others said, every woman is different and every woman has different fertility signs or minimal signs. At times in my cycle I have not have much obvious EWCM when I am ovulating and I know some women even do internal checks because their outward signs are not as obvious.

We have never used birth control and I have had one miscarriage in 2008, then we had our DS in 2009, then one miscarriage in between, then our DD in 2012.

For our second we were leaving it up to chance, NTNP, but since our DD took 2 years to conceive we never really expected to become pregnant without actively trying.
They will be 20 months apart.

22 months
20 months
21 months
So we average 21 months

Weird thing is I'm hypothyroid and have 45day cycles with an 8 day luteal phase. That doesn't slow down my ability to get preg I guess!

To the bolded, it CAN happen. I just got a BFP tonight, AF has/had not returned and I tested on a whim. While EBF as well, except we have been intrducing solids over the last month or so.

Congrats! Reminds me of a friend from church. She has 5 kids age 10 and under- has NOT had 1 period in 10 years!!! She ebf each kid, and sometime around kids 15-18 mth she gets a "feeling" she's pregnant, tests, and yep! It's crazy! Never known anyone like her before

I actually don't make a lot of EWCM. I barely have any at all, and it's never enough to notice externally. The only reason I knew the exact day I ovulated was because of my cervical position.
