10 months PP still no AF, want advice or success stories?

I am new here ladies. Hello! I am still nursing dd along with feeding solids since 5 months and no AF. I am 38 and hoping for at least one more. I am curious to hear other peoples stories especially older moms. I don't think dd is ready for weaning, I have what I think might be EWCM frequently but not in any sort of pattern.

Hi momma! There are a couple of forums on here that might be better for you. Specifically ttc 30+ or ttc while bfing. Don't have any advice but they might be able to help you!

I'm younger, was 23 when my DS was born. But I didn't get AF back until DS was 13 months :-)

I didn't get AF until DS was 20 months old when I was able to wean down to for or so feeds. I think it took another 6 months before I really started ovulating. I am 31 and still TTC. Not trying to be a downer, but just saying it may take time even after AF to regulate.

Re: 10 months PP still no AF, want advice or success stories?

hi mama
heres my past experiences!
With DD1 I was 20, EBF, at 5 months introduced solids, got 1 period when she was 6 months, got pregnant with DD2 when she was 8 months and continued to BF until she was 14 months.
With DD2 I was 22, EBF, at 6 months introduced solids, got 1 period when she was 10 months and got pregnant with DS1 when she was 11 months and continued BF her until she was 18 months.
With DS1 I was 24, EBF, at 7 months introduced solids, got NO period at all whatsoever and caught my first ovulation when he was 15 months and got pregnant with DD3.
I am now 26, tandem nursing dd3 who is 7 1/2 month old and ds1 and no sign of my period returning and dd3 tried solids last week with no interest.

I know some women ebf round the clock and still get their period and fertility returns but for me, the longer I delay solids and bf baby on demand day/night the longer my period stays away. Just because no period yet doesnt mean you can't get pregnant if you catch your first ovulation

Oh hugs mama! It has been different for me after each child. But on average, AF returns about 1 year pp. And we even caught ovulation one time b4 AF even showed up, lol! But now, I just daytime weaned my 20mo, and had AF within 2 wks! The only other advice I have, is that exercise seems to help AF return. Not excessive, of coarse, just 30-60min 3 times a week or so
