a few of my friends got ku w/o getting their period (they were also ebfing)
Quizzle:Nothing here. Not complaining!
None here and I love it! I hope to make it as long as possible without one!
We're not TTC anytime soon (Jan 2012 at the earliest) so it can stay away until next December for all I care!

Me neither! It's been so nice not having to deal with it I wish we could just flip a switch if and when we wanted to conceve again, but anywho....I feel like it may come on soon though. I've been starting to feel similar sensations as I used to when I would ovulate.
andrew's wifey:I had one around 8wks PP, and haven't had one since. I'm loving it.
Same for me! I hope it stays away. I do POAS every few weeks, though, just to be sure.
I'm at 5mo PP, fertility signs are coming back but no period yet.
BF delays fertility depending on how often you do it and how far PP you
are. Some women have over a year of infertility (usually EBF). Some women can see a
return of fertile signs as early as 3 weeks (usually formula-fed). Most
EBFers don't see a return until after you start on solids.
If you're not on HBC, you can use a fertility microscope or pay attention to your cervical mucus to see if your fertility is coming back. If you don't see those signs coming back, you might have to cut back on BF when the time calls for it. Maybe you can store up on breast milk now so if you have to cut back you'll have some for LO.
I have 6 children...youngest being 10.5 months old.
I have not had a cycle since he was born...I am pregnant again...EDD 07/05/2011 (2 left).
This has happened after each of my children were born. It took 6-12 months to have a cycle again. And 4 of the 7 times, I got pregnant before my cycle showed up.
I breastfed exclusively for the first 6-9 months (depending on child).
I enjoyed not having it...however glad when it came, when I was not trying to get pregnant. When we were trying, every month that it did come, I had a bad day and cryed a lot.
FYI, Dollar General has very accurate and reliable PTs for $1/test. I've used them for all 3 of my pregnancies and all were right! Love the price. I did the same thing once my son started solids. It was my monthly routine and by the time he was 13 months old I was 6 weeks pregnant. Hope that helps!
