Is this normal? Period after baby

I had my youngest 9 weeks ago. Lochia finished pretty much around 3 weeks post partum. Period still hasn't turned up. Ive had symptoms from about 3-4 weeks -- mild cramps, craving carbs/chocolate, bloating, tiredness, bad mood, etc. All my normal PMS symptoms. I had very, very mild spotting a few weeks ago for a couple of hours. However, it hasn't arrived yet. I only breastfed her for 3 days. With my son, I breastfed for 6 weeks and period arrived when he was about 9 weeks old, so I presumed it would've turned up by now. I've had regular discharge, but doesn't smell or anything.

Does this sound normal?
Oh yeah, there is ZERO chance I could be pregnant again.

It can take months for some women to get their period back so sounds “normal” to me but speak to your gp or midwife if you’re worried
