This question is assuming you got your period back before you started weaning.
How long did it take you to get your period back with each child? Was it around the same amount of time, or very different?
It took me 19 months to get m period back the first time, and I'm wondering whether it's likely to be similar a second time around.
Mama to a preschooler and a baby.
#1 - 6.5 mo
#2 - 10.5 mo (tandem nursing #1 once a day)
#3 - 4.5 mo (tandem nursing #2 2-3 times per day)
that last time i def. had a 'warning' period the first time and then ovulated and had another period 30 days later - then had a 100 day cycle after that.. and then a few 40ish day cycles .. totally different than the first 2 times..
Never got it back as i got pregnant each time before i actually got the first period back so here's the breakdown-
Nursing twins- got pregnant when they were 3.5 years old
next child- got pregnant when he was 3
next- pregnant when she turned 3
got divorced and got my cycle back when he turned 3
nursing a newborn now- am sure I'll follow the same 3 year no fertility cycle!
It has returned one year earlier for me. I induced it back when DD1 was 2.5y, it returned when DD2 was 18m and came when DS1 was 8 months old. DS2 is just a newborn so no idea this time.
1- 7 months
2- 9 months
3- 8 months
Yah...i'm bitter :) All 3 were ebf, and not nightweaned, but af still came back!
