After my first, when I got my period back, it came month after month as if it just picked up its (very regular) pace again. It started 7 months after she was born (and not coincidentally, right after we started solids).
When my period came back at 7 months with my son, I thought the same would happen. But no, my period has been skipping months here and there and in general driving me nuts. Last month I had a bit of a stomach bug around a week after my period had been due and took a pg test but it came up negative, so there was another skip. For me, when I skip, the next one comes on schedule, so at least it is predictable that way.
I know from my symtoms with my two pregnancies that when I am pregnant my body will let me know, so I am not too eager to try out a pg test right away. It's not like I am not living healthy (there is nothing lifestyle-wise to change) so I'm not all that concerned about things.
