Re: How long???

I finally got AF at 10 months PP with DS1. I had an IUD at 6 weeks PP with DS2, so I'm sure that affected it with him.

Re: How long???

With ds I never did, I got pg with dd1 when ds was 9 months without having one. With dd1 I didn't get ppaf until she was completely weaned at 13 months. Dd2 is 4 months and I am not expecting it anytime soon.

With The Kid, I got my first period when he was 13 almost 14 months old. I BF him at night/weekends and pumped while at work/skool.

Re: How long???

Avery is 10.5 months old and no AF here yet....he's still pretty much EBF though, so that's probably why.

Re: How long???

I'm at just over 10 months with no visits. I've had some signs of possible impending visits (face breaking out and such) the last couple of months but apparently AF is just reminding me of the possiblity so far.

Re: How long???

I've been menstruating on a very unpredictable cycle since Oscar was about 3 months old. At the time AF came back, I was still EBF'ing every three hours. So I dunno... I guess every woman is different.

Last month, I got it THREE TIMES which really sucked. I'll be so happy when I can get back on real birth control pills (rather than these annoying mini-pills) so my cycle will be predictable again.
