When did you have your first period after your first child was born?
With ds1 at 8 months - exactly a month after a stopped bfeeding and ds2 at 6 months about 3 weeks after I stopped feeding him myself. Some of my friends got them even when they were still feeding though.
5/6 weeks both times then around 8 weeks and with ds(1st) not again until 5 months - both breast fed. Still get bleeeding with Mirena almost 2 years on so guess I'm in the unlucky 2/3 - varies from just brown spotting to light flow for up to 5 days so better than without.
ds is 4 months now and was wondering as I keep getting that feeling that the period is there, but then when I check nothing's happened yet. Not that I miss it, just wondering how long to wait and have heard different stories, and your testimonials just reinforces this: everybody's different.
10 weeks, fully breastfed. Apparantly if you are at all overweight the fat converts to oestrogen and that can make your periods come back.
2nd time had mirena put in at 8 weeks and had no periods at all! Then got pg as mirena had slipped and the obstetrician couldn't get it at all "When was your last period ??" (asking in April 2003). Me : "April 2001" I think his mind was boggling at the longet pregnancy ever!
