When did you get your PP AF?


with Cadie I got it at about 3 months PP. I was so bummed, and the first one was a real doozy too. The cramps were awful. I have felt crampy for about a week now and I suspect it will be returning soon. Not happy about that. Vivian is only 2 1/2 months old. I don't get why I can't have a longer break. wah!

With Lily I got it back at 10.5 months and it lasted a week, which was a long time for me. Usually AF is only 3 days for me. Then I got pregnant with Vi right after.

Violet will be 5 months on Tuesday and I don't have AF back yet. I've been feeling crampy, but I felt that way monthly after Lily and didn't get AF back for months after that still.

I got it back at 8 months with Grace. I don't really know with Evey because I had the IUD Mirena and spotted a lot. I don't remember when I got a full on period. I'm 8 months postpartum now and no AF yet. I think I will get it within the next couple months.

He still nurses a lot. We bedshare and he nurses 3-4 times throughout the night. Grace pretty much stopped nursing at night and was sleeping 8+ hours by 8 months. I don't see Henry sleeping 6+ without waking until 10-12 months. I only nurse from one breast.

I was 9 months pp with Ethan. I got it 2 days after he nursed for the last time. Mine wasn't bad at all. I actually had normal cycles for the first time in my life after Ethan was born... probably why it only took me 2 months (instead of 2 years) to get/stay preggo.

all three of mine I got pp AF around 6-8 weeks. With Courtney I had another exatly 28 days later, after which it goes back to its usual weird unpredictable cycle. This time around I had a period in mid January and haven't had anything but several light spotting episodes since then. Don't use me as an example though, my body sucks.

Around 7 weeks. I stopped bleeding, then a few days later I started right back up. It was really irregular though. When he'd go through a growth spurt I wouldn't get it, then when he slowed his nursing down again I would. I think I got it back because he slept 8 hours straight a few nights.

12 weeks. I wanted it to come earlier so we could TTC right away. LOL. It's probably a good thing it didn't....

Mine was about 7 to 8 weeks pp. Isabella is EBF I was really hoping for a little longer of a break. My cycle went straight back to normal too every 28 to 30 days.

With my first DD it was 8-9 months, with DS I'm not quite sure. I have an IUD put in when he was 4 months (copper not Mirena) and I was bleeding every two weeks! It was awful!

I'm just about 3 months PP and nothing so far. She started sleeping 7+ hours every night the last week and a half, and I've been feeling kinda crampy so I think it's on its way. I almost thought I was pregnant already because I had a tiny bit of brown tinged CM a week afer she started sleeping thru the night! I thought for sure it was implantation bleeding. But my $store test says no! lol

Nothing yet. I am VERY close to 2 years period free Will I make it? LOL! My last period before I got pregnant was HORRIBLE and you ladies are scaring me. If Zoe did not nurse 1000000x's a day maybe i would get one, haha.

It was about 5 months with dd and almost 10 months with ds. I am hoping for another long break this time as well. I have just realized that over the past 4 years, I have had more months without AF than with, gotta love what pregnancy and breastfeeding does for me.

I was 5.5 month PP when I got my first AF. i was SOOO bummed b/c I was still EBFing and we co-slept so she nursed a lot at night. I'm on CD48 now and haven't had my second one... so maybe that was a fluke and she'll stay away for a year or so, lol.
