    Default AF?

    Anyone else getting towards two years postpartum and still no sign of AF?

    Sorry, I started mine a couple months ago. But, I do know that some women have to stop breastfeeding completely to get it back. I was just talking to a friend who said even just nursing once a day kept hers away. Probably not what you want to hear if you are TTC BUT if you are not, then count your blessings!

    Emma, you know how happy I would've been to get that kind of break?
    proud but exhausted working mammy to two high needs babies

    • my surprise baby: the one and only D-Man born 3 weeks late (5/5/08) at 9 lbs 14 oz and 21.5 inches, and
    • the shock H-Girl born about a week late (10/7/09) at 8lbs 15oz and 20.75 inches.


    If I am here I am covered in baby (probably two) and fighting for control of the keyboard.

    Family beds are awesome

    Wondering if you have PPD? Take the screening and see your doctor. You deserve to feel better.

    no such luck here either (unless you want AF back....lol) I got mine several times during her 1st year, and once she hit a year it was back like clockwork every month...

    have you spoken to a GYN about it?

    Mine started back up at about 16 months PP, but that was almost five months after I pump-weaned at work, so I have a feeling that if I had kept nursing and pumping day and night (Joe still nurses a lot at night) it might have held off longer. I wish mine would have held off longer - not only do I appreciate the birth control, but I gotta say, nursing when you have PMS is rotten. I spend two days a month thinking "I need to wean this baby YESTERDAY." Then it's over and I'm a happy nursing mom again. But it's lame.

    Thanks everyone! After DS1 it returned at 12 months, and nursing always hurt during my period, so I'm not looking forward to that when/if it finally returns. I just thought it was odd that this time I'm approaching two years

    Mentioned it to my Dr but he just shrugged and talked over my head to the med student behind me about female athletes and women with low body fat often having this trouble...yeah, and the fact that I'm far from athletic and nursing a toddler round the clock has nothing to do with it, right? So yes I'll be changing my Dr...

    No PG test for me - my husband assures me we'd have to actually have sex for that to be a possibility
