I thought they would have returned by now?

they will prob return back once youve stopped bf but you can still get pg whilst youve got no AF.

With DS, my periods didn't come back until I had totally stopped breastfeeding. They started again exactly 4 weeks after his last breastfeed at about 9 months, and he wasn't breastfeeding much in the last month tbh.

Thanks both

don't worry, the condoms are in the drawer being used!

How long is he sleeping at a time - going through the night yet? That can make a difference.

You know that if you popped onto your PN thread occasionally <ahem> you would find that plenty of us haven't got them back yet.

But yeah, you're prob knocked up.
Congratulations grin.

I BF DD3 for 11 mths (by then she was only feeding morning and night), periods came back when she was around 15 mths - obviously test if you think contraception failed (or was forgotten) but it can be perfectly normal.

mine didn't come back till dd was 18m and I stopped feeding altogether

even 'one feed before bed' was enough to keep them away

No, its ok, the pg bit was a joke grin

Oh I hope mine stay away Mrs B
