When I had DS, my first pp period came at 5.5 months, and from charting, I knew my fertility was back because I could see that I was ovulating each month from that point on (luteal phase was a bit short in the beginning, but lengthened as the months went on). That was with exclusive breastfeeding. I was so happy and grateful that I conceived my DD on my 8th pp cycle-- at my age, I don't feel I have a lot of time!
I'm wondering, if one is doing pretty much the same thing for each pregnancy (i.e.,same level of health, breastfeeding the same frequency, etc.) would one's body generally follow the same timeline? I'm really hoping my pp period after this pregnancy comes back as quickly. And my fertility along with it.
For those of you who have 2 or more children, what have you noticed about the return of your pp periods and fertility-- has it been about the same length of time for each?
