View Poll Results: After the first couple cycles....
I don't ever get spotting or bleeding between periods
I clicked the whacked out one! I've had 3 AFs since having Dylan..... it's been a few months since my most recent though. I will spot 2-3 random days out of the month, each month. BUT- I have the Mirena IUD in, which can cause spotting, and can eliminate periods. I think the Mirena is to thank for my lack of periods though. Because about a few months when I had an AF for the first time in like a year my face broke out, got moody, everything.... and even still, come the 15th of each month I 'PMS', break out.... bleh! Just no period.

Once I started again (Owen was 8 months) I was back like clock work. You can tell the phases of the moon by my cycle.
Sounds awesome. I've never had a regular cycle. I'm sure there are blessings with this curse since I don't ovulate as often I probably have a lower chance of breast cancer or something like that. In general I suppose it's nice to have fewer periods, on average that many women. The unpredictability is what kills me. Sometimes 28 days sometimes 54 or really just about anything. The spotting thing is new to me, however. Maybe I just never noticed before? I'm still nursing about 1-2 times a day so that complicates things further. The whole "am I pregnant" question runs through my mind very frequently when it gets to be past about CD 30.
