12 months this Sunday, and still no AF!! And in the last month, dd has gone down to nursing only 3-5 times in 24 hours (of course, one of those times is sitll in the middle of the night ...). I'm loving not having my period, although I'm hoping it comes back before we're ready to ttc#2 (maybe this fall?).
My period began again 17 months after 1st DD was born and about the same for 2nd DD. The part I like about not having my period is no PMS or mood swings!! Love those nursing hormones that keep me on a mellow high for so long!
When my period starts, as my best friend always says: "welcome back!" :
We're at 11.5 months with no af. I thought when I nightweaned(at 10months) it would come back, but nope. Tell the truth, I kinda miss it. But I'll be okay with it being gone as long as I'm nursing, which seems like it'll be the case.
Enudely, I got what felt just like period at 2 months but nothing since then, maybe that's what happened to you.
Still no AF for me at 9 months. BUT... I EP and I do pump throughout the night as well. (10-12 times in a 24 hour period, I try to mimic a normal nursing pattern) I don't miss AF. I do a monthly pregnancy test just to be sure I am not pregnant.
I literally called my midwife in tears, I was certain I wasn't nursing him "right" if AF came back. He was still exclusively nursing every 3-4 hrs day&night. Got pg when he was 10mos. Then 7mos after DD was born AF returned again ~ even though DD was exclusively nursing & I was TANDEM nursing DS as well.
Thank heavens for vasectomies!
I always feel bad for the mamas considering weaning so they can get pg again and I was begging for the nursing to hold off AF so I wouldn't get pg. Nobody wins!
AF returned at 7 months despite being a non-stop nursin', co-sleepin', baby wearing, no solids, all baby all the time mama.
Pre-baby my cycles were horrible (very irregular and lasting for weeks at a time) but post-baby AF arrived like clockwork and stayed only 6 days. But now it looks like I'm drifting back to my "old" cycles where AF could show up anytime and stay for weeks. Ah well...DH and I are TTC so AF is sort of a friend, right?
