Hi there... I really hope this is in the right spot, and I am just looking for some advice/thoughts/opinions on wth is up w/ my cycles. Before I had ds1, my cycles were 100% unpredictable.

Between ds1 and ds2, my period came back ~9 months and was then like clockwork till I got preggo w/ ds2 ~19 months - every 28 days, once it was 29. Clockwork. Came back ~5 or so months w/ ds2 (he's 11 months now fwiw), and have seemed fairly regular, albiet very long - ~35 days, so a full week longer than 'normal'.

But this month, I'm up to 40 days and no af!! DH & I have been super good about using protection (condoms) ever since ds2 was born, so I'm not too freaked out (yet). I've taken a couple pregnancy tests the last two days, and they show negative, but I just do *not* understand wtf is up w/ my cycles. At all. At what point would you goto your doctor and get checked to *MAKE SURE* you aren't pregnant? You just see all these 'I didn't know I was pregnant' shows on tv about all these ladies who tested and showed neg when they were in fact pregnant.... so yeah. WWYD??

breastfeeding can mess up your cycle, even when you have been doing it for a while...

if you were already irregular pre-babies, adding breastfeeding to it would just tell me that this will probably just be one of many confusing cycles you have.

Of course, even using condoms pregnancy is a slight risk... but I am much more inclined to just think its a messed up cycle and AF will be here before too long (probably about 5 minutes after the next time you take a pregnancy test, if you are anything like me! LOL)
