With my first, it was almost 2 years before it came back, and with my second it was just over 2 years.

Exactly 21 months for me. I didn't have another period for 8 weeks after that. For me the return of fertility has been slow.I figure that my body knows what it can handle.

13months for me. But I took 1 clomid pill, and o'd a week later. Some people say it's fluke but I believe it encouraged something that was just about ready to happen regardless.

2.5y, 18m, and then 8 months for the last one. So certainly a wide range for me!

~28 mos, around the time I night-weaned DS.

Still aren't regular - they come every 3 weeks, and stay for 10 days. Ugh.


DS, 10/07. Allergies: peanut, egg, wheat. We've added dairy back in. And taken it back out again. It causes sandpaper skin with itchy patches and thrashing during sleep. Due w/ #2 late April, 2012.

My DS is almost 15m and no AF in sight around here. I'm kinda hating the suspense at this point.

DS- 4 months (but he was preterm, spent time in NICU, and had a lot of trouble nursing at breast at first, so lots of pumping. Right about the time he was finally nursing well, I had to go back to work full time, so more pumping/bottles of EBM)

 

DD1- 19 months

 

DD2- 10 months

First baby, it was about 10 months pp, but I had just weaned him.

Second baby, it came back 4 months pp, even though she was exclusively breastfed.

Third baby, it came back at 15 months pp.

With dd2, it came back just a month or so ago, so...16-17 months pp.
