Ok, so I'm on month 3 (approximately) of waiting for my cycle to return. DS is 11 months old, and is eating some solids. He does still nurse at night.

But now, I am on three solid months of the 'day or so before' cramping, light spotting (though pretty heavy today), low milk production etc, and it's driving me NUTS. I could deal with the rest, but the impact on my milk production is angering my son.

Anyone have a very slow to return cycle following a pregnancy?

(I generally return to a cycle pretty quickly- about 4 months after my oldest as well as my second child.)

Also, nope, I'm not pregnant, just waiting for my period endlessly. Yep, I tested, though I knew the risk was almost zero.

For both DCs

Nursed exclusively for 5 months
started solids at 5.5 mos (only tastes)
Nursed on demand till 2yo for both (so even when eating solids nursed on demand)

got aunt flo back with both at 14 mos. And yes, had all the pms stuff too. Good luck!!

I could have written your post for the past 3 months. I did finally get my first ppaf a week after DS's 1st bday party. But, I felt like I was gearing up for the whole summer. Really, I kept telling my sister every time we talked that I was getting all my ducks in a row. She got sick of hearing about it. Also, I had finally just resigned myself to lifelong PMS without a period (literally at breakfast on that day I said "I'll never get another period") and then I went home and surprise! there it was. So, maybe it really is right around the corner? I felt like I spent about 3 months with all the impending signs (well, they were off and on).

Well, on the upside, it finally did start about 12 hours after I posted this. The downside is that it hasn't yet stopped.

Two weeks of this now!
