I ask because I STILL have not had mine... and DS is 10 weeks old. I only BF for two weeks, so that's not the reason. I bled for 5 weeks after he was born... sorry TMI. Could that have anything to do with it? I'm worried that something is wrong with me... My doctor's office said there could have been a period mixed in with that, but then I'd still be starting right about last week now that I think of it. It's also not possible for me to be pregnant because DH and I only DTD once... and we used a condom.... and it didn't break... at least not that I know of. Shoot, I've just been too sleep deprived to WANT to do anything.... when little one is asleep, I take advantage of it and catch some sleep of my own. Especially since I'm back to work full time.

I unfortuately got AF back at 11 weeks postpartum. I am exclusively breastfeeding 24/7. My babe sleeps 8-10 hrs @ nite though. So maybe thats why it came back so soon.
I bled for 1 month after having her and then hadn't had any more lochia until my period came.
