About to start trying for #3

I'm currently waiting on my period to arrive & then we are going to start trying for #3. We have 2 daughters (aged 2 & 10 months) 16 months apart. I've so far only had 1 period after my second baby & am on day 41 of my cycle. It's been the craziest cycle ... insane amounts of ewcm daily from about cd10, lots of cramping, bloating & sporadic spotting. I actually took a pregnancy test last week to see if that was why my cycle was so off, but it was negative. We were originally going to start trying again in the new year. But I was quite shocked by how sad I was about the negative result, so we have decided to start trying now instead.
