- OPKs but EWCM

I should throw out there that I'm breastfeeding my youngest so AF has not yet returned and I have no idea what my body is doing! I'm not TTC yet, just monitoring my body in preparation. AF returned at a similar point when my DS was little, so I'm wondering whether it will show up soon.
I had 3 days of EWCM recently and did OPKs every day, but they were all negative. I usually get a pos OPK with EWCM - so EWCM is usually a very reliable indicator of ovulation for me. Normally I would say it was some random breastfeeding weird hormone thing, but all my symptoms were very similar to ovulation - just without a positive OPK.
So I guess I'm asking - is it possible I ovulated? Or unlikely?
All this waiting for AF is making me a little crazy!

i was TTC while breastfeeding with #2 and #3 and while TTC#3 i noticed i would usually get the best EWCM 3-5 days before i would get a positive OPK. some months it was spot on but most of the time it was after i had the best CM. i was using OPKs and charting as well.
