Hey ladies! I can't believe I'm here so soon; I just had my son on January 30th. I got my first postpartum period in June and now (assuming my cycles are regular again, which is definitely wishful thinking) I am 3 days late! Three negatives from FRERs, so I have a 25 pack of Wondfo's ordered. I figure they'll come in handy while AF is being wacky, and again when we start trying for number 2 in January

Has anyone else been in this situation before?

I had my DS in Dec of 08 my periods finally got regular again in April of 09 and I got pregnant with my DD in July. But after her it took me a complete year before I had a regular period like I did before kids. It's Bette to be on the safe side :-)

With most of my kids they'd be a little wacky. Sometimes it'd be that some cycles were shorter and some were longer. I had never had any completely missed but it'd be a very common thing in the message boards and playgroups. They'd have a pp af or a few seemingly regular ones then af is MIA again for "no reason".

were you breast feeding by any chance? i'm wondering about how post partum AF works. I'll be experiencing that in January of 2013 after our little boy is due.

Yes, my son is breastfed with about one supplemental bottle of formula a day I've been browsing google and I guess it isn't uncommon for the second PP AF to be up to two weeks late!

Yeah especially with breastfeeding, sometimes that in itself can mess with cycles and make them irregular and skip after they come back. Like if baby is suckling more or less, it can cause the body to use different hormones.

You could always take a test if af doesn't show up in a week, just to rule it out because if you aren't using protection then it's very possible.

We've just been using the withdrawal method, so it is possible! I think I'll test again when my Wondfo's get here. I feel like a real AIP'er now that I ordered them, lol!
