I had my first PP period, I've always regulated quickly, but now I haven't gotten another one, day 36..that's not normal for me at all.  I regulated to 28 days on the dot last time.  No signs of AF and negative pregnancy tests.  So, is this more common than I think?  My baby is 1 btw and I still nurse around the clock and co-sleep, if that makes any difference...

Well, my first few pp periods were pretty wonky.  I didn't get my first one until ds was 17 months, and he was still nursing several times a day.  I was never super regular before, but they were usually within the 30-32 day range, unlike the pp ones that were 40-50 days apart sometimes.  I think it's fairly normal to be irregular if your body is still struggling to make enough hormones to ovulate, the nursing and cosleeping can make that difficult.

I think that's really common.  With DD, I got my period back when she was around a year and it totally skipped around for awhile--- 21-42 days over the next year.  After DS I didn't get it back for longer (he was 25 months) but it was immediately more stable.

thank you, I've been reading up on it and I guess it is common.  Day 39 and still nothing...not complaining though!
