I know every woman is different, but I'm still curious about how long you all waited before you started menstruating again after birth.
A little more info:
I've never had regular periods. This had a lot to do with being eating disordered for a number of years. I stopped menstruating entirely from 05-07. Once I recovered they were still light and inconsistent.
In oct. 2010 I became pregnant with DS & carried full term. He'll be 12 months at the end of the month! He still nurses very frequently. (about about 3 times a night in bed & every 3 hrs during the day) He has plenty of solids, and his poops are that of a weaned baby....so I don't feel like he's nursing for more than half of his calories.
I'm definitely healthy and am taking powdered maca (a couple times a week) for energy & hoping it will help my cycle return.
DH and I are hoping to conceive ASAP.
So what was your experience? How long did you wait?
