Hey Jane,

There are many reasons why women miss their periods. Nursing itself may give you irregular periods and it sounds like you still are nursing, even though your giving your baby some food and water. You may actually not even be ovulating, even if you get your period. Additionally, if you're feeling any type of stress, you may miss your period. If you're not pregnant, then it's probably just that as you continue to nurse, you will experience these irregular periods. However, if you're really worried, you should check in with your doctor. Good luck!!

Attempted induction at 38 weeks; ended up with a c-section.

In love with my baby boy Colin and baby girl Sienna!
