Just curious. My period returned at 8.5 months with DS and DD is now 8 months old. I'm wondering whether I might see AF soon...........

Baby #1 - returned at 6 months
Baby #2 - returned at 9 months
Baby #3 - returned at 9 months
Baby #4 - still no AF (almost 14 months old).
My AF came about a month or so after weaning.

yep at 6 wks both times despite feeding 2 hrly during the day and 3-4 hrly overnight! ripped off!!

AF would have arrived when DD1 was 6-7 months old, but I fell pregnant that first time I ovulated so it obviously didn't show up.
With DD2 AF returned when she was 7-8 months old, so around a similar time for me

No my first returned a week after post partum bleeding stopped at 6wks then with my second I got it back around a year after his birth I think. Both fully breastfed as well

No, they were all different. With DD1 it was around 7 mths. With DS it was 6 wks, coincided with him starting to sleep through & he was a terribly lazy breastfeeder anyway (although I persevered until 12 mths). With DD2 I can't actually remember but it was months rather than weeks.

Roughly the same. Maybe slightly earlier with the second so 16 months with #1 and 14 months with #2.

Bikingbubs - poor thing! I thought I was ripped off when mine came after about 10 weeks with DD1!
Really hoping it's not the same this time!

DS1- 7 months
DS1- 16 months
DD- will be interesting to see.

DD has now reached 9 months and no sign of AF :-) Any more stories?
Posted 27 January 2013 - 03:56 PM
Both at 10 weeks despite exclusive and overnight breastfeeding.
Still cranky about it.

Yeah pretty much the same each time, around the 12 month pp mark. I'd already weaned 1 of my children fully by that stage (and mostly night weaned the others) no difference, 12 months. But my body takes a looooong time to recover hormonally.

It returned around 6 months with my first which was the same time it returned for my mum so I thought there was some sort of connection there. DD1 was still feeding around the clock.
Then with my second it came back around 8 weeks!!! I was tandem feeding DD1 and DD2 so wonder if that had anything to do with it?? Although it meant I was feeding a lot, maybe the fact one was older (almost 3) tricked my body or something... no idea. I felt totally ripped off though.

DS - 4 months on the dot
DD - 6 months
I had one period after each and got pregnant again, despite exclusively breastfeeding. I feel incredibly lucky, my body must like being pregnant...

After all five of my babies my period returned 4 months post partum and I had fully breastfed babies.
Posted 31 January 2013 - 02:04 PM
12 weeks both times. DD was sleeping 12 hours at that point so that wasn't suprising in her case but with DS I'd only finished bleeding post partum a few weeks prior and he was still feeding overnight. I felt a bit ripped off in that case.

Not for me.
#1, period returned around 5mths (dd was in the process of self weaning)
#2, it returned at about 5 or 6mths, can't exactly remember. He was breastfed till 18mths.
#3, it returned at 7mths, and only had 2 periods before I was pregnant again. She is 2 & still breastfed.
#4, dd was 6mths a few days ago, and no sign yet. Though I have the mirena in, so it may be delayed due to that. I'm still breastfeeding her also.

DS: AF returned at 11 weeks, DD: AF returned at 9 weeks. I definitely got rolled
Posted 31 January 2013 - 02:19 PM
DD - 7 weeks.
DS - 6 months and no sign yet.
Both exclusively breastfed. (Although have now started solids with DS)
