Trying not to get my hopes up...but...

My periods are lovely and regular, every 27 days on the dot since they restarted after the arrival of DD1.
We have been TTC with great gusto for 9 months with no success. So this month have gone for the very unscientific - every other day for three weeks.

On Sept 1st I stopped breastfeeding. My next period arrived 4 days early and now the one I have been expecting to arrive between 23-27 days is now officially over 24 hours late (i am nearly on day 29)

In your experiences does stopping breastfeeding play havoc with periods or should I allow myself to start getting a little excited?

Can not POAS until tomorrow eve at the earliest as I am at my mums and I don't want to get her hopes up!

Did you POAS this evening? Hope you had the result you wanted if you did

Just in case anyone ever has a similar question, from all the research I have done over the past few days it appears that, yes, stopping breastfeeding can play havoc with your periods.

However, it seems, so does the BFP that I just got grin
