So, I still have yet to have my first post partum AF. I am breastfeeding, but not regularly at all. She gets bottles during the day and I don't pump.. so there is no way that my ovulation is being held up due to breastfeeding.

I had my first PP AF by 8 weeks with Charly.. and now at four and a half months.. I have nothing.

I'm seriously considering taking an HPT. Geesh. I can't believe I even have to think about that. Ugh.

I guess this is more of a vent than anything. I'll probably pick up a test sometime this week. Man.. wouldn't that be crazy. Three under three.. holy crap.

present, and the hope and promise of the future.

I'm a total poas pusher so I'm gonna say poas just to be on the safe side. It can take anywhere up to a year or more for AF to return bfing or not.

Thanks to Claire1979 for the amazing siggy.

you could test to have a peace of mind.

But with Breana I got my period back like 6-8 weeks PP but with Xander it was 3 months PP.

it might be just your body readjusting.

Take a test just in case. Are you BF during the night? I've heard that it tends to be night feedings that keep AF at bay.

POAS to be safe but it's more than likely just your body adjusting. 1 birth to the next means nothing when AF is involved. She sets her own schedule.

I'm in the same boat. I breastfeed, but we are down to twice a day only and no sign of AF. I keep dreaming I'm pregnant because I'm wondering where AF is!

AF didn't return after my first pregnancy until Cohen was 6 months old, but this time it returned after two months. Both times is when I stopped night feedings. I'd POAS too, just to know one way or the other.

if it were night feedings that kept AF at bay I would have had her return a while ago lol. Some people just dont get it back that soon.

my 1st: stopped BFing completely at 2 weeks she returned at 6 weeks
my 2nd: stopped BFing at 3.5 mos and she returned at 6 months
my 3rd: still BFing and no sign of the witch at all

I haven't started mine either and am breastfeeding. She's done eating at 7 pm and doesn't eat again til 6am so no night feedings for us. I exclusively pumped after my last kid and didn't start my period til 7 months. That was with pumping only 4-5 times a day.
