Hello all, This is my first post in this subforum. I am usually in the waiting to TTC since we aren't officially trying yet. Well, here is my story. My son is now 10 mos. old I am still BFing him. When he was 8 mos. old I got my AF back and had two very regular cycles now-each 29 days long. Well, AF was due on Fri. and it is Mon. and there is absolutely no sign of her so I am on CD 32. Last week I was so crampy and was sure AF was coming, then since yesterday, no cramping at all. I took a test today and got a BFN. I am really confused now. Has anyone else had this issue or similar with AF being off like this? I have heard that after AF comes back while breastfeeding it can be irregular, but I thought since I had two regular cycles it wouldn't be that way for me. I guess I will give it another week and see if I get AF and if not test again.

If you get cycles back during bf they can be very irregular. For instance, I started getting cramps and all the other pms symptoms for several months before I actually had a period. From what I hear, you start periods when you arnt nursing enough to surpress them(like my ds sleeps through the night) But than one day your child may nurse more, and suppress your period for a while. I hope that wasnt confusing, lol. In other words, you my just be having irregular cycles. You could try to test again in a few days if it makes you feel better! Good luck!

It's definitely possible that your af are irregular, but it's also quite possible that you are pregnant and just didn't get a positive test yet. For my daughter I didn't think I was pregnant because I had all the signs that my af was about to visit. Give it a few days and test again.
