When did your AF return?

I'm 11 months post partum and still haven't started menstruating again yet. Well, I had one period at 3months, and haven't had one since. Is that strange? Should i have it back by now?

I got mine back at 9 months. I don't think it's abnormal at all to not have it back yet. It just means your body is focusing on your baby, not making a new one.

ds1 was 4 months and 8 days old and ds2 was 3 months and 4 days old.

Ironically ds1 was weaned for 2 weeks and ds2 was nursing about a million times per day. and I was pumping 4x per day. at least.
14 mo postpartum both times
10 mos PP
6 weeks post-partum, but obviously irregular as I haven't had another one and I'm now 14 weeks post-partum.
I got mine exactly at 6mo... but haven't gotten it again. Is that normal, or should I be worried about a bun in the oven (which would be somewhat of a miracle)
After baby #1 13 years ago, it never did. Then after baby #3 two years ago, it started again. Sigh... 14 years without AF was wonderful, and I was still ovulating and able to get preggo!
After DD#1 it took 28 months for AF to return. I know thats rather long, but my daughter was voracious for her "chi-chi". It wasn't until I was pregnant with DD#2, that she started to eat more food. I had my hormones checked to see if I was peri-menopausal, but apparently not.
7 months pp and no AF. I would honestly be suprised to start this soon. I think 13-14 months is the average.
i'm 9.5 months PP and no AF yet, at about 6 months PP i bled for like half a day and never had anything else, i do think i am ovulating, i have cramps every 41 days ( my old AF was exactly 42 days, no more, no less) and DH says i get PMS, so i killed him (
just kidding)

Two years and several months with a frequently breastfeeding toddler.
2.5 years with DD1, so I'm not expecting to have to worry about it with DD2 for a long time.

Ds- 14 months

Dd- still waiting
13 months with a 95% breastfed munchkin.
DS #1 12 months (I returned to work)
DS #2 14months tomorow and I'm still waiting
9 mths pp with #1, but we started solids at the recommended 5 mths. Still nothing with #2 at 6 1/2 mths pp. We are still EBF right now, though.
