Unless you count postpartum bleeding, which did suck b/c for me it lasted on & off for 5.5 weeks. Other than that, I've not had a *real* period for over a year. It started June 1, 2008. Woohoo! I love that benefit of being pregnant and now of exclusive breastfeeding. :

However, I am a little paranoid about getting it back once I'm back at work and going longer periods without actual nursing vs. pumping while I'm there. Anyone else worried? Anyone get their real period back yet? Weird thing is, I saw what appeared to be EWCM a couple of days ago.

ETA: Off-topic, but anybody notice that we are now at the TOP of the DDC list? : Makes me nostalgic for the early days when everyone was still posting & we were all so excited/talking about stuff.

I had some weird bleeding when I was pg but didn't have a real period since May 22 (I think) of last year.

Yeah my last period started June 1, 2008 (easy enough to remember). I had some faint pink spotting when I was first pregnant, followed by some slightly darker spotting at about 5.5 weeks and 8 weeks. Freaked me out, but obviously things turned out OK!

I got my real period back this month. UGH!!! It had been over a year bc my last period was in April 08 (we did IVF, so they had me on BC with no period right before we got pregnant) I was sooo annoyed when I started again. I am a SAHM and I exclusively breastfeed so it was totally unexpected. I can only guess its because my little man started sleeping though the night (9-12 hours) when he was 8 weeks old and AF showed when he was 12 weeks. It was tough bc my milk supply went to CRAP during that week. My poor baby had to nurse every two hours and was CRANKY about it. THANKFULLY my milk came back after I stopped bleeding. So it's back to businiess as usual around here again, that is until NEXT MONTH!!!

It has almost been a year as of June 15th or so. I will have to start pumping at the end of the summer when I go back to school so that change may bring it back but usually I get a break until my babes are 18 mths! I love it.

I spoke too soon. Looks like AF is on her way, and DD is only 12 weeks old. : I started spotting a little bit yesterday, but nothing full-on yet. No cramps, though, which is unusual for me.

Yeah, I've not had any cramps, and I ALWAYS do. It's just been very tiny amoonts of very pale spotting for like 3 days now. Pink and brown... just like 11 months ago.

It stopped... never went past very subtle spotting. : I posted something about it in the Fertility forum, but no responses so far.
