My LMP was November 2005... and I'm 14 weeks pregnant!! It never came back, so looks like it'll still be another year or more. Making it 2-3 years + with no AF.

Re: FOR EBF MAMAS - HOW LONG UNTIL YOUR PERIOD RETURNED?

It was 13 months almost exactly after DD was born that i got it back, she was only nursing once or twice a day from about 10-12 months then when i stoped completely at 12 months I had one cycle and am now 16 weeks prego again I wonder how long she would have been gone had i kept nursing even just once a day.

6 weeks to the day

We did give a few bottles of EBM and a paci here or there, but I still feel VERY cheated

Re: FOR EBF MAMAS - HOW LONG UNTIL YOUR PERIOD RETURNED?

Everybody is so different. With my first DS I had this thought that my period wouldn't return forever. I was so wrong, it came back at six months. I was so bummed. I thought that since I was working full time and I pumped, that that was probably the reason why. But my theory was wrong.

With DS2 I became a SAHM. I thought for sure, since my breast were only getting stimulated naturally that I would be period free much longer, WRONG. It came back sooner, at only 3 months. Go Figure.

So I've came to the conlusion that every women is different and with every baby it will different, no matter what.

I wanted to add that I pumped w/ DD1 3 times a day at work untill he was 12 months, and BF him when I was home untill he was 2 1/2. DS2 is now almost 8 months old.

Me, too. DS is almost 7 1/2 mos. No AF. He's on solids twice/day but still nurses every 2-3 hrs. I work PT & pump. He's on a paci. Wakes up 1-2x/night to nurse. Sleeping in his crib since 3mos. And, I HPT every 3 wks just to be sure!
