Ok, so sorry for starting now three threads on this subject in the last few months, but this is some pretty interesting but confusing stuff.
As background, my wife is still breastfeeding our 8 month old about 6-7 times a day. Basically we don’t have a schedule for her to eat, but she does get some supplemental solids about twice a day. That leaves at least five full feedings by breast and a few additional “snacks.” That’s keeping full fertility away.
However, she’s experiencing the typical “patches” one would see during the fertile time. Dry days leading to “T” days leading to “S” and then back to T and D. Weirder still is that she experiences a temperature spike that lasts about three to four days as one would normally see after ovulation, but then the temp falls back down in the space of one day.
To be specific, she sees temps in the 96.9 to 97.2 range and then it spikes to 97.6 to 97.8 for a few days and it falls back from 97.7 to 97.0 in one day. This is a pattern she’s seen regularly now for the last two months. So what’s going on? Obviously she can’t be ovulating, so is this her body just “getting ready” to do so? Anyone else ever experience this?
