Any mamas out there who have gotten pregnant again while exclusively breastfeeding & before your period returned? If so, how many months old was your baby? Were you trying to conceive? And how did you realize you were pregnant?

my mother got pregnant with my brother while i was exclusively nursing and before she got a period. she found out she was pregnant at her 6-week post-partum appointment. that's right... my brother is 10 months younger than i.

I was still nursing (but not exclusively -- back then she started us on cereal at 6 weeks), and mom never had a cycle between us. My sister was born 12 months and 9 days after me. Mom was feeling really worn down around Thanksgiving (I was born in May), and my aunts told her she ought to check with the doctor just in case. Well, apparently she was. So on their 2nd anniversary, my parents had a 15 month old and a 3 month old.

I wasn't EBFing, but I did get pregnant before my period returned.
