I think I might be pregnant but the urine test says negative. I will not be able to get a blood test for 2 weeks and the suspence is killin me!<br>
Ok, is this normal with ebf? I got af back then had a 6 week cycle, then another six week (less a day) cycle and then another 5 1/2 week cycle. As of today it has been 81 days ( 11 weeks, 4 days) since my LMP. That is almost 5 weeks longer then last time!<br><br>
Anyone ever heard of this when the person was not pregnant? I do have some other sign but I am wondering if they are psychosamatic (sp?)<br><br>
tia! (nak btw, sorry)<br><br>

It can happen that you skip a cycle or two if your nursling starts nursing tons more.<br><br>
That said, when I was indeed pg with ds#2, I tested negative - hpt and blood test at 2-3 weeks pg. I was 4.5 weeks pregnant before I got a positive. I was nursing at the time and had 6 week cycles.

I hope you are pregnant, if that's what you are wanting! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
But, yes, I have heard of women having very irregular cycles when breastfeeding. Has your dd been nursing more over the past couple of months than she was before? Or nursing more at night? I have read that an increase in nursing can send af away again for awhile. Also, after cycles return, they can be anovulatory for months, causing irregularity in when your period comes.

Thanks guys, it helps to know this is not totaly unprecedented. My dd has actualy been nursing less in the last two or three months but she has been pretty restless at night, so that could be related.<br><br>
I do want to be pregnant, but I hope I am not right now. See, I want a midwife next time and they are so scarce around here that you have to book them in the first month or two. If I am pregnant then it is likely already too late to get one! Besides, I was hoping Samantha and the next one would be at least 2 1/2 years apart, so that would be doable soon, if my period ever does show up anyhow :LOL<br><br>

I was convinced I was pregnant earlier this year and I had tons of symptoms. It was just my cycles messed up. I hope you get the answer you want!
