I am still nursing my 25 month old son, and we are still enjoying it. I would like to let him wean naturally. However, I have started to get hot flashes which are extremely uncomfortable! I am also a little worried because my period came back several months ago (just twice) and hasn't been back since...I will be 38 in a few months and we would like to have more kids. I am going to get blood tests. Has anyone else experienced this or heard of this? My midwife said it was probably just a side effect of the extended nursing but I had never heard of this. I know it could also be due to thyroid but hope it's not a fertility issue...I hope I am just being a worrywart!
