Anyone else still waiting on AF? It's been 8.5 months (well, 17.5, really!) and still no sign of her here! I'm still EBFing, though.

I'd been having spotting since birth once a month, and real AF returned at 7 months. I started giving her 3 meals with breastfeeding at 6 so I guess that was the trigger for me.

Maybe I should say BFing instead of EBFing? Evan eats baby food and/or people food 3-4 times per day as well as nursing.

I read once that the return of AF during nursing had to do with how much fat you had in you. In theory if you are really thin, you might not get it till baby is completely weaned. My mom was like that, and she hovered around 90 lbs at the time. Guess I was really fat after this baby. I got spotting 28 days after birth and then once a month after. lol

^ Oh my god, that's horrible!

I'm feeding Robby 3 meals a day and bf-ing (and pumping at work) and I also have seen no sign of AF. I'm SO happy about it!!

I am BFing as well. I got back on the pill when he was about 3 months. That's probably the reason mine came back. My period has never been regular and have always had to be on BC for it to be regular.

I'm jealous of all of you that don't have af yet! I exclusively breast fed her till 5.5 months (didn't even pump) and I got af back at 3 months. It has been a bit irregular since, I think I missed a month. I'm 5-10lbs overweight but I'm back down to my pre pregnancy weight.
