My last menstrual cycle was Dec 2005 and I got pregnant in Jan 2006. Now my LO is 14 months old and I just got my period today. My milk production has been a good bit down the past 4 days and I normally have so much that I'm a milk donor. I thought it was low b/c I am leaving town at the end of the week and will be away from my LO for a week and I am stressed about it. Could my supply be down because I am getting my period or did my period begin because my milk supply is down? It just started tonight and I'm not happy to have it back.
Is there anything special I need to do now that I am cycling again. Is this a sign of my LO weaning? She has been reducing our 9:30pm nursing session from a real feeding to a small suckling. I always said I would let her decide to wean when she wants to do so but I'm not sure I am ready for it.
Any advice would be great! (Any suggestions on how to get rid of my period again would be great too)
