curious? how long did it take to get your period while bfing

Hey mamas,
this is just a post of of pure curiosity...

I have had 3 children and each child breastfed for a year or over (still bfing my 2 year old) I never got a period until exactly 14 months afterwards, each child I knew by my third that I would get it in the 14th month... anyone else not get it for this long? I know some friends of mine got theres 3 months later?

Going on 8 months and still no PPAF! I keep crossing my fingers that it will come soon so I can start tracking everything so we can start TTC in Sept!
