    We nurse around the clock too and it still came back with both ds2 and ds3. ds1 it was because we weaned at 6 mths. (long story and i regret it completely )

    I didn't cry when it came, but I was inexplicably crying a ton a few days before over silly little things!

    its been almost 20 months no AF!!! But we definitely practice the ecological breastfeeding no more than 4 hours during the day and no more than 6 at night (though I think he goes longer than that some nights).

    I was wondering, how can you tell when your body is gearing up to ovulate again? a couple weeks ago I had left ovary pain for a few days and thought I might be ovulating, but I didn't get my period. I think if he starts sleeping longer at night it will probably return by 2 yrs old.

    the ovary pain is always how i clock my cycles! i get pretty sharp pain 14 days in every time. That might be a good indication your ovaries are thinking about it again I know my friend had the pain 15 months after her baby was born and didn't start to bleed for another month after that...

    At 19 months. It was 2 months after I stopped pumping at work (I work full time, gone about 10-11 hours 4 days a week). He was still nursing at night when it came back. I went back to exactly the same cycles as pre-baby.

    I wish it had stayed away longer because now I get a lot of nipple soreness and I'm very irritated with nursing about 4-5 days around ovulation.
