I totally understand! Noah is 17 months next week, and I still haven't had my period! We are planning on ttc as soon as AF makes her appearance. Just a waiting game right now....

here is some info...

Quote:
When the first period returns depends upon several factors: how frequently the baby is nursing, how often the baby is supplemented with bottles, whether or not the baby takes a pacifier, how long the baby is sleeping at night, whether or not solids have been introduced, and the mother's own individual body chemistry and the way it responds to hormonal influences associated with breastfeeding. Any time the stimulation to the breast is decreased, especially at night, menstruation is likely to return soon after.[/b]
Quote:
Even if your period does not return while breastfeeding, it is still possible to conceive. The absence of menstruation does not mean that you will not ovulate. Therefore, some form of birth control should be used once you have been given the okay by your doctor to resume sexual activity.

The chances of getting pregnant while breastfeeding and menstruation has not returned range somewhere between one and two percent for the first six months of breastfeeding. After your baby turns six months, the chances of conceiving while breastfeeding (with no menstruation) goes up.[/b]
