yep. apparently i wasnt too crazy to think we might have gotten pg a coupla weeks ago because mine started yesterday. at first i thought it might be more pp bleeding or something but now im pretty darn sure its my period. DANGIT! Maybe I really was pg, cuz I sure felt like it. in that case, i guess af is a good thing now!
and yeah, with my other child it was like 15 months before it came back.

does your new LO nurse a lot at night? riley doesn't (once or twice, tops) - my other two nursed a lot at night. could that be the difference?

yeah, there is that, and also that this guy loves a pacifier and he nurses very efficiently- so not a whole lot of total nursing time, even tho bm is all he gets.

Wowsa! I had to wean Aidan at 16 mos so I could get my AF. I just assumed the same thing would happen this time. Better not be so confident, huh?!

I *think* I may have been paid a visit around 6 weeks pp... but it was right after my pp check-up and the bleeding could have possibly been brought on by the internal exam...

I'm crossing fingers that's the case.... soon enough we'll see!

Oooooh I worry about this. I so hope not to get mine this time till after BF. I got it at 6 weeks pp last time. NOT FAIR!:

I had 2 days of spotting last week (I was 8 weeks PP) but so far, no AF Hopefully that was ovulation spotting lol

6 weeks pp to the day. Like clockwork.

Despite tandem nursing, to my disappointment. The only way I could be nursing more is if I was literally nursing 24/7. She is only nursing twice at night, but he is nursing once in the middle. I know there is no way I've gone even six hours without nursing.

I had some bleeding the past week. It really didn't seem like my AF because it was light (I'm usually weak with blood loss at least one day) and I only had mild cramping (I'm usually nauseated with pain). I have a feeling it was due to my doing more during the day (you know, actually taking care of my child instead of letting my parents do it) He nurses really well so I don't know...

Oh DANG!!!!

I had stopped bleeding 6 days ago and then today I started spotting. Not just spotting, but some cramps too! This would be 5 wks PP.

With dd1 I got AF back in 6 weeks and on the same cycle as before. Im a little crabby that this could be it already! I was hoping to dtd with dh while I wasnt bleeding!!:

Mine seems to be back. : I was hoping to not have it back until after we're done bfing. Oh well. I'm getting the kind of IUD that usually banishes AF (after a few months of having it in), so I have that to look forward to.

I got mine back at 7 weeks! I was so looking forward to swimming at our annual family reunion at a church lake resort, and it started 1.5 days before leaving! : I was so upset. I made a way though. I really wanted to get in the lake with DS1 and we did! (I don't ever wear tampons, but it came in handy!) We had fun anyway! So, I guess I was fertile at 5 wks pp!

That would be Mirena. The downside is that I might have unpredictable, frequent bleeding for up to six months after it goes in. But after that, I should have either very light periods or none at all. It doesn't stop ovulation.

The copper IUD supposedly can cause heavier, more painful periods for up to a year, so I decided that one was not the one for me...

i got the copper one b/c i'm really sensitive to artificial hormones. so far I haven't had any of the cramping most people report when it's brand new. Plus I'm hoping that I won't get a visit for awhile. I just realized that next sunday will be a year since my last visit from af.: can I have another?

oh, plus the copper iud lasts 10 years and I will soon be uninsured, so that was a big draw, too.
