No AF yet...
 
Anyone else still without AF? Dexter slept through the night for the first time last night so I'm thinking it should be coming back soon if that keeps up ( I read that for bf moms it usually comes back again once baby sleeps through the night). But I can't help that I am starting to get a little nervous... We've only dtd a handful of times, but it only takes one time right?
Anyone else still missing af? Anyone worried yet?

I'm on my 2nd AF now. She didn't come back until 8wks PPD and I was getting pretty worried because I was 5.5wks PPD with DS1 lol.

I've heard it can take a while if your EBF but I'm not sure. When in doubt POAS ;)

No AF for me yet. I am EBF and not even a hint of her showing (which is fine by me!!!) though every once in a while I get what feels like O pains or maybe mild AF cramps. Hmmm....

It really varies from one woman to the next. Some EBF and dont get a period for up to a year, i EBF and got mine (with both boys) by 6 wks. Other women who dont EBF can get theirs anywhere from 6wks pp to a year pp. Im sure youre fine but if you need some comfort do what Kelsey suggested an POAS for reassurance :)

I have the opposite problem - there's only 1 week since I've had her that I wasn't bleeding. The week I stopped was during my 6 week follow-up, and I went on depo at the time, so I'm not really sure if AF came back, I'm still bleeding from the pregnancy, or if it's an effect of the depo. In the past when I was on depo, I never bled, so this is new for me. I would say consider yourself lucky you can dtd! Also good luck if you POAS ;)

I got the Mirena so I don't think I'll really know when AF returns, but with my daughter I didn't get it back until 14 mo even though she had a period of STTN between 6 and 13 weeks old.

Nope, no AF for me, either, and I'm almost 4 months pp. I have had a day or two of spotting twice, but nothing resembling an actual period. I thought it was because I was at least pumping, but I gave that up a month ago, and still nothing.

Definitely POAS. I did, twice, and had mixed feelings about the negative... on the one hand I don't want a distraction from our awesome little one, and on the other it would be nice to get this show on the road, have our babies and then close up shop.

I am in the exact same boat as Dee up there. No real AF, had some spotting about a week after my pp bleeding stopped that I thought was AF but now I don't think so. I stopped pumping a little bit ago and still nothing. I poas about 2 weeks ago and it was a nice lil negative so if she doesn't show soon I'll use the other FRER I have even though I hate wasting that money lol. ;)

None here, she can stay away forever as far as I'm concerned.

That said, it came back around 3 months with DS, so I expect it'll be similar this time.

Nothing for me, and I only pump 4 times a day (and get barely anything anymore) AND Quinn's been sleeping through the night since she was 4 weeks old, so I don't know about that theory. I was definitely getting worried so I took a test today as a matter of fact, thank goodness it was negative.

Re: No AF yet...
 
I stopped by the dollar store today to get a test but they didn't have any. Ill get one from the pharmacy sometime this week just to be safe. I'm just being cheap and don't want to spend ten bucks on a test that is most likely negative.
