I have been nursing DC for almost 14 months now. I had my first PP period at about 6 weeks. I was horrified, as I was nursing exclusively, and nursing almost round the clock. But then I didn't get it again until about 12.5 months PP. But now I haven't gotten it since, and it has been over 6 weeks. I feel like I have been definitely getting more CM the past few months, but them just had just the one period which was very light and very short compared to my normal periods.
I currently nurse probably 3-5x in a 24 hour period, most of it at night (she sleeps with us).
I have recently been feeling some hot flushes at night and during the day. This started happening when I started thinking that perhaps I was going through menopause, so I wonder if the hot flushes happened because I was so anxious about the idea of menopause, or if they were truly hormone driven.
I am soon to be 40, so I think it's a bit early for menopause, but a friend just told me she hadn't had a period in a year and she's 42. THat really made me panic. I am not ready for that.
All this to say, is it normal to be this irregular as I have been slowly cutting day nursing ( I used to nurse in the morning and pump during the day). Or could I possibly be facing menopause?
