Got my cycle while Bf.

Should I be worried? I'm probably freaking out over nothing, I was always told I wouldn't have a cycle while I'm breast feeding and I hadn't the whole 5 months my baby bear has been nursing til, this week. I am sort of happy about it though because, now I know we can legitimately try for #2 not just practice .

That is very normal. Some women do not stop having a cycle. Have you introduced solids? It is likely that LOs tummy has grown and their feedings are spacing out. Nursing less at night is a likely cause as well.

I got mine back at 3 months PP with my first 3. I am 5 mos PP now and no AF yet, but I expect her any time.

I just got mine yesterday at almost 4 mos. I have been pumping less to deal with oversupply, so I blame that for my very unwelcome AF.

Got mine after 9 months but did not conceive until DD was completely weaned.

Yep, totally normal. With my DD2, I got my cycle back just 2 weeks after my pp bleeding ended. And had a regular cycle the entire time I BF her (which is actually what ended BFing because she went on a nursing strike during each AF)

Normal. With my first I got it back AT my 6 week checkup. I was suprised it was so soon. Now am 3 weeks postpartum with baby #2 and am wondering what will happen this time.

I got mine back with dd1 at 8 mos and dd2 at a year. Some women get it immediately. Others a long time.

I always get mine somewhere between 4-1/2 and 8 months pp. baby fusses at breast a few days before AF. I started a question thread and they recommended taking extra calcium and magnesium. I did that this past month and ----no fussing! It did help supply around AF quite a bit.
