    Default return of menstruation

    Just curious when other mom's had their menses return? Mine just did (almost 10 month old daughter). We breastfeed on demand but she sleeps through the night now on most nights (for the last few months she has). Part of me feels happy because it signals that my husband and I are free to get pregnant when we choose (although we weren't planning on it any time soon!) but another part of me feels sad! Like my body is beginning a new chapter and my mind isn't totally there yet
    My daughter doesn't seem to notice (phew!) so we will continue as normal. Just curious when others got their menses back...

    Mine came back a week before DS turned 1. I was so disappointed, but also glad it took that long! He wasn't sleeping through the night (and still isn't, ha), but that is when I pump weaned. Total bummer!

    At age 21 months, about 3 weeks after we night-weaned. DD2 is almost 6 months old and no sign of it yet. Lucky me! But I was a bit impatient to get pregnant again because my DD1 was almost 2 by the time I ovulated again!
