My daughter self-weaned two weeks ago very abruptly and now my period is 8 days late (it is usually about every 30 days and I have had six since she was born). Has anyone else experienced this? Is the sudden weaning the cause? I have take three pregnancy tests over the past week and they have all been negative. Any thoughts are appreciated.
No real thoughts, I just didn't want you to go unanswered.
Personally, I would wait another week and then test again. I don't know how old your DD is, but when I got my period back with DD I had several that were fairly regular and then they really spaced out wierdly (but she was still nursing).
I have heard that pregnancy hormones can cause the milk to change it's taste. I also know several ladies for whom pregnancy tests do not work so... if you are super concerned you can go get a blood test. Or just keep waiting it out. I know, I hate waiting too :)
