minimalistoverplanner :  how did you confirm ovulation? Is there a chance you ovulated late? Sorry you are so worried! It is totally normal for us to have a weird or wacky cycle every now and then though

Definitely the times I changed nursing patterns my cycle changed a bit. I went back to full time work just before 9 months, cut down from 4x nursing to 2x nursing daily, and I think I ovulated within the week and got my period back within ~3. It was a super light period that was barely more than spotting but lasted about 5 days + cramps etc. Then it got more normal – I still had a day or two of spotting before periods but the actual flow was more normal. Then my son fully weaned and I had another super light cycle that was barely more than spotting + more cramping. I think I got pregnant the cycle after that, so it didn’t mean any problems, just fluctuating hormones. I could see nursing more impacting it too. Good luck, it sounds frustrating but definitely likely that things are just off (maybe you won’t get any more than spotting and this is your period this month?) if you have changed how much you are nursing.

I had a BFN on 12dpiui, bled (spotting and some light bleeding) days 13-14 and ended up pregnant!

minimalistoverplanner :  ya, I mean this might not be it but when my son ‘fully weaned’ he went from one lacklustre feeding a day to none – like <5 min of ‘nursing’ where he probably only really nursed for like 45 seconds, didn’t even hit letdown for the last week or so, and apparently that was enough to give me a wonky cycle 🤷‍♀️ But it could also just be a weird one for no particular reason, as pp mentioned they do happen sometimes and we just don’t usually notice unless we are hoping to be pregnant haha
