ST+Ms...AF

When did you get your period back after each child? I got mine back at 4 months PP with DS, but I was supplementing a bottle or two a day and I still haven't gotten it back with DD....she's 8.5 months. Just curious to see. My friends all got it back about the same time with each of their kids.

  • With my first birth, I did not breastfeed at all and got my period back after 4 months.

    This time, I still breastfeed and nothing yet (8 months in)!

  • I'm a first time mom but my babies will be 10 months in a few day and I still haven't gotten it. I breastfeed but I still expected to have it by now.

  • 6 months with DS1 (I had supply issues)
    6 months with DD (She switched to prescription formula at 5 months)
    DS2 will be 9 months next week and I still haven't gotten it back.  I actually took a pregnancy test last week because I had been nauseous for a couple weeks straight; it was negative.  I am curious to see when it will return.

    Same here. I've been getting headaches, nauseous, dizzy, starving, the whole thing. I took a dollar store test and it was negative. I didn't think I was, so I didn't mind wasting $1. I just wanted to be sure.

    7 months af returned with all 3 of my kids. Although I only had 1 cycle and got pregnant....did not see that coming.

    @MiaMyPuggle‌ I too took a dollar store test on sept 9th (I thought af was going to come sometime around the 4th) and it was negative...fast forward to Sunday (21st) evening and lowaigringa's post and I took another dollar test and bam, pregnant. I'm not sure if I had a false negative or if I just ovulated late. Won't find out until October 15th. I was feeling the same as you, a little dizzy, lots of headaches and super tired.

  • It was 5 months for me (quit nursing due to supply issues about a month before). I'm glad to hear some other people are having pregnancy-like symptoms! I feel like my body is still adjusting because I was having some of those too, but then AF arrived.

    Thanks @Roses87‌. I feel like it's actually settling in though I don't feel pregnant at all! I had zero symptoms, aside from huge supply dip and some random headaches. How's the house coming?
