Just hoping for some reassurance here!
At 26 months postpartum, I still have no period. based on my cervical mucus, I also don't think I'm ovulating. I had never thought I would wean my daughter, but at 18 months, I decided to night wean in hopes of getting my period back. No luck. A few months later I cut her daytime nursings from about 10X's/day down to 6. Then down to three...and two. Now at almost 26 months she is only nursing once in the evening. I realize that everybody is different and no one can give me an answer, but I'm hoping that someone can relate. Is it possible that I might need to wean entirely to ovulate and get pregnant again? I feel torn between nursing by DD and doing whatever I need to get pregnant. I don't want to wean completely...but I also want a smallish gap between kids. I'm starting to feel like there is something wrong with my body! I weigh the same as I did pre-baby...have been trying to gain weight, but seems impossible. I've had my thyroid tested and it's fine. I feel so helpless and frustrated!
Anyone else gone this long without a period while only nursing once a day? Is there anything I can do to encourage my cycle?
