How long until your period returned?

My period returned 6 weeks after DD1. But still nothing yet after DD2, who is 4.5 months. Exclusive breast feeding for both. Not sure what is and isn't usual and feeling very bloated of late.

What are your experiences?

Six months after ddtwins - a few weeks after I started weaning.

Bang in the middle of a big bbq party - first time we'd had guests that weren't family!

14 months after DS1.

My post birth bleed carried on for 14 weeks and then periods restarted about 3 weeks after that stopped. I was not happy!

16 months with DS.

Can't remember with DS1 but a few months, I think; DS2 is 5mo this Sunday and I'm still waiting. Not bothered though!

Can't remember with DD1 but it was just under 6m with DD2 and she was mix-fed by then with more formula than boob.

I hadnt had anything 6 months after DD1 was born, was bf, and assumed they werent coming back yet.......and fell pregnant with dd2.

Dd1 6 months, Dd2 a year and still counting...

14m with DC1, 16m with DC2.

I was climbing the bastard walls.

21 months and still nothing...

I don't think I'm normal.

JiltedJohnsJulie Thu 07-Mar-13 14:21:50

Actually nan everyone on here sounds normal to me. Have a read of this smile

27 months... Though was still breastfeeding...lost count of number of pregnancy scares!!

nancerama Thu 07-Mar-13 17:10:27

I swear DS is plotting. I'm the only one of our circle of friends who isn't expecting number 2. He seems to be nursing more than ever. I think he wants me all to himself.

Typical. Two days after posting this...ta da! That explains bloated feeling.

27 months - that's quite a hiatus.

Snowgirl1 Thu 14-Mar-13 22:16:45

10 months

16 months for me. nance, I felt like that too, with everyone else expecting DC2 except me. It took almost another year after that to get upduffed again so despite having periods, things weren't quite working somehow. Probably due to DS's night feeding. Totally normal not to have them back at 21 months though, if it makes you feel any better. thanks

7 months

11 months. DD was still bf, but about this time she got into solids properly (at last!) and started having the odd bottle of formula.

moomoo2013 Fri 15-Mar-13 11:27:54

7 weeks but I have read it takes much longer whilst bfing x

About 8 - 10 months I think
