Do tell.
When did you finally have a period?
Were you still nursing or how long had it been since you stopped?

Inquiring minds want to know! Haha. smile.gif

9 months PP with my first. I was nursing constantly (day and night). I was really surprised since I thought all the nursing would keep AF away. Not for me!

 

I stopped nursing with my 2nd at 3 months and AF returned at 6 months PP. I am horribly anemic though, or it likely would have come back a little sooner.

18 months for my first nurseling. I was still nursing her day and night.

At 10.5 months with current nurseling and feeling my hormones already starting to shift and build. I'm more well nourished this time around so I suspect AF to arrive before 18 months. We'll see!

Just got my first pp period on Monday, 2 days shy of 19 months since ds2's birth.  It was about 17.5 months the first time.  Still nursing, probably will be for a while.

32 months......a few nights of sleep, 4+ hours without nursing, started my cycle again.
It was just as I had read (4-6 hours of sleep, enough to regain fertility). It doesn't even need to be every night, but it is enough to signal.

My DS was sleeping much longer than that for many months before I ever got my period back, so I guess I'm lucky. (And yes, he was EBF and fed on demand - he just figured out nights were for sleeping at a very early age!)

I am definitely not the winner - 10.5 months PP for my first period. Took me totally by surprise and I had to ask MIL for a pad. Luckily, we are friends!

This is really reassuring to read!

My MIL keeps pressuring me about having baby #2 (our DD is very spirited, and we joked ONCE that she "might be an only", so she's keen to see us go for another). Anyway, PP AF hasn't made its appearance yet, at 16 months PP, so I'm always like "hey- I'm open to having another, but my body isn't!"
