I got my period back the first week in January. I had what I thought may have been mid-cycle spotting about 30 days before my period started, but when I looked back at my cervical position and mucus, I believe it may actually have been my "warning period." Meaning I had 2-3 days of spotting, 16 days later I had EWCM and a positive OPK (no sex in our house at the time because all 3 of us were suffering from the world's worst cold=not sexy), and 13 days after that I started my period. Well, I'm on CD 16 now, and I had 2 days of spotting on CD 13-14. I'm not showing any fertile signs yet. I'm wondering if anyone else who's regained their cycle had mid-cycle spotting? I never had it before I had DS, and I know it can be totally normal (i.e. drop in estrogen before ovulation or follicles bursting), but it's just something new, and I'm wondering if anyone else dealt with this post-partum.
I know I may seem obsessive, but with my IF history and suffering from amenorrhea (lack of a period) for 3 years, I'm constantly on the look out for fertile signs or signs that something is wrong. DH and I can't wait to have another one, but we're nearing the time of year where we won't prevent instead of full on trying.
I'm an accountant, and I missed all of last tax season (Jan thru April) last year for my maternity leave. Once we have two (be positive!), I'll be a stay at home mom, but I'd like to get my replacement trained and through one tax season before I resign. Also, one of my co-workers is retiring at the end of April, so I'm potentially looking at training in two newbies next tax season. I realize these things can't always be planned, but I work for my father's practice, so needless to say, my boss is pretty awesome, and I love my clients, so I just don't want people to feel like I'm leaving them high and dry. Also, I received 75% of my regular salary during my maternity leave last year, but I missed out on the 5-figure end of tax season bonus. It would be pretty great to deposit that bonus into an emergency fund right before I have a second child and become a SAHM.
