No period 4 months after childbirth

Hi!  I have a 4 month old daughter, who I am not breastfeeding.  My first period came about 7 weeks after giving birth, and it was pretty normal.  My second period after that was VERY heavy, but "on time", now I am 2 weeks late with cramping and sore breasts like my period is going to start, but no sign of my period.  My husband and I have used condoms every time since I gave birth.  Could I be pregnant anyway, or is skipping a period or having a late period normal after childbirth?

If your late must have already tested and got a negative. Wait a few more days and if it doesn't come, test again.  If it is still negative, call your dr, they may want to do blood work.

I breastfed my twins and had a period regularly even with an iud in and when I stopped b/f then my periods stopped. I only say this to point out we all have messed up cycles from time to time and if you used protection try not to worry. Good Luck.
