I had a feeling my cycle was about to return when I started getting heavy amts of EWCM for days at a time with really strong ovualtion pains. This happened for 2-3 months but with no period. At 8 mths pp, I noticed a small smt of bleeding out of the blue that lasted only 3 days, so I thought that might be my first period. About a month later I got a definite period, with mild cramping and backache with flow lasting about 5 days. Same thing happend the following month. So, that seems to be the story of my cycle returning so far. (I thought it would take much longer to return since we BF on demand day and night, with ds never having had slept through the night yet at almost 11 mo.) ETA, my face is breaking out much more now than in the early pp months or during pregnancy, so that is another sign. Also, many more mood swings--definitely hormonally related for me! I was much more even keeled the first few mths pp.
