what's your 2nd ppaf story?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
(nak) hey all, just wondering what the range of experience is on this...

my 1st ppaf was when ds was 9mo exactly. he is nearly11mo now and no #2. 1st was normal duration and amount, but browner blood. my cycle is never regular anyway, but usually only 30-45 days between. i really doubt i am preg again...been using the diaphram and don't feel it (i knew with ds). so are things even more irregular for a while? btw, ds nursed excl. til 10 mo and still eats very few solids, usually nuses every 4 hrs or more day n night. when i got 1st af we were on a road trip tho, and nursings spaced out a bit more than normal as he slept in his carseat. could i have re-upped the hormones suppressing ovul. by nursing more frequently again? my mom returned to fert. only after weaning totally my sister and i (15 and 11 mo) and was surprised by my 'early' ppaf.
thanks for sharing your experiences for my curiosity

I got my 1st ppaf when ds was 22 mo.My second one was 40 days later which is totally out of character for me.I am usually a firm 28 dayer.1st af was 8 days long and very heavy and 2nd was only 5 and heavy too.I am normally 3 days.

It seems that it might just take a bit to get regular again.I am also still nursing and I was wondering the same thing too when af didn't show up.I'm waiting for visit #3 now due on NYE so we shall see.Of course that's based on a 28 day cycle.

Good luckaroos!

well, wouldn't you know it...af arrived on the 26th...i must have known it was coming to worry about it. i have since read that the first few cycles do tend to be irregular and often, if intro of solids is gradual, anovulatory. wish i had gone 22 months!!
thanks!
