first PP AF...
 
well, after 18 months, it's official, my cycle has returned. still nursing about 8-10 times a day, so i'm surprised. i had some light spotting last month, so maybe that was my first one, but this month, it's very regular.

so my question is, this far into nursing, am i still going to have milk drop during ovulation and cycle?
oh, and i'm having some serious hot flashes today. is that normal too?
TIA!

i think the hot flashes are normal. I don't think you will see as much dips with your supply. fwiw, i did not get a period until i weaned.

What exactly makes AF appear anyway? We hit the 9 month mark today and no sign of AF :phew: :lol: but some of my JM friends saw AF return after only a few months or so while EBF'ing and i was surprised!

Everybody is different! For women, fertility returns right away in spite of nursing around the clock! For others, it doesn't come back until several months after weaning completely. A lots of experiences in between! Many women notice fertility returning once baby isn't nursing quite as frequently, like once they begin to sleep through the night or starts solids.
