A 12-month gap between babies is definitely hard on the body. The mother wouldn't have recovered fully yet from the pregnancy and delivery!

Did you know you were going to ovulate all those times you conceived?

I started to have these symptoms around month 12/13 (it was pretty erratic then), and then normal cycles -- though some anovulatory -- after month 14.
I have heard it is possible to ovulate without getting a period, and that it is common on a primal diet? Any thoughts on this?
yes, it is possible. I don't know whether or not it's more or less common on a primal diet.
