Re: When did your period come back?

Thanks for the responses! It's sounds like there's no "typical" timeline, which is comforting.

You can say that again!

All three times, it was very different for me.

DS was my firstborn:
I bled very lightly (lochia) after childbirth, and that ended about a week after his birth. Oh boy, I'm so lucky! Yeah, very short lived feeling. My pp period with him began 5 friggin' weeks after his birth! And it was a full, raging period, too - cramps, cravings, mood swings. I exclusively nursed him and for much longer than my girls - he stopped getting bottles at about 2 and a half weeks old because nursing was completely established by that point (he was a bit of a preemie and had latching issues at first), and he never got another. He didn't stop nursing day or night until 14 months old when my milk suddenly and completely dried up because I found myself pregnant with his first little sister, and nothing I did brought it back until after her birth. Yet I regularly got a period each month during those 14 months.

DD1 was next:
I never did get any pp period after her, believe it or not! And she got bottles from the start (pumped milk). She began sleeping through the night on her own at 3 months old, and would nurse around midnight, then conk out until about 7:30 a.m. Still no period. The last period I had was January 2008, just before her conception. Yet...

DD2:
I found myself pregnant with her in July 2009, totally unexpected! I had to have an ultrasound to even know how far along I was. I nursed her exclusively and pumped as often as I could (she was also a preemie), and I only had two pp periods after her - one three months after her birth, another five months after her birth.

I'm now expecting my fourth.

With my 3yr old it came back around 9mos PP. She nursed ALL the time and wouldn't eat solids until around 13-14mos. My youngest will be 4mos tomorrow and other than occasional twinges and achiness on my sides, no AF yet.

Got mine back at about 14 months. DS was (is) still nursing at home, but I quit pumping a work a couple of weeks after his birthday.

Re: When did your period come back?

With DD, baby #1, it came back right at her 1st Bday. She was EBF for the first 6 months, then continued BF with solids. I still don't have my period back with baby #2 who is just 5 months. I am hoping it won't come back for a long time!
