Maybe this is wishful thinking... but I was wondering if there are any older moms who went right from pregnancy and BFing into menopause and therefore never got another period.
Hey, a girl can dream, right? Almost six months and holding...

Mine came back 20 months PP. I have had few cycles since and the last was 6 days late, I am never late and I am not pregnant per store bought tests. I am 36 and had my son at 34. Nursing on demand still since birth. Somewhat confusing for sure.
Never even thought about pre-menopause. Humm?

Right now, low estrogen is probably causing v. dryness, but as long as dd2 is nursing, there's no way of telling how much of that is breastfeeding-related and how much of that is menopause-related. The hot flashes, however, are most certainly not breastfeeding related!

Are you sure that hot flashes aren't related to breastfeeding? I've been getting a lot of those, but so have the other nursing mamas I know... maybe that's just post-partum hot flashes? That is very interesting... also, still no period despite feeling like I might get it soon.
We are doing BLW though, so he only gets solid food once a day and breastfeeds at will, which I guess keeps my supply up and the hormones up too?
On a side note, I keep getting "What are you feeding that kid? He's HUGE!!" so I guess he's okay. LOL People get really freaked out to know that I'm basically just breastfeeding him. We've only done solids for the last two weeks, so all that growth is from breast milk. It's amazing what our bodies can do to feed these little buggers, huh?
