Hey girls. My DD will be 8 weeks old on Tuesday. I was just wondering when y'alls periods returned after giving bith. I haven't gotten mine yet. I'm not breast feeding due to a medication that I have to take and I'm also not back on the pill yet. I am considering not going back on it since I had some difficulty getting PG the first time I am hoping that it won't take as long the second time.
I nursed my DS and my AF didn't return for 11 mos. I know your situation is different though. I wouldn't count on not getting pg quickly just because it took a while the first time. We tried a year before conceiving our daughter. Thought it would take a while the second time around too but was pg in 2 mos after trying. Third child happened first month. Sometimes our bodies change after giving birth. Just a thought. Congratulations on your arrival.
I'm a total odd ball, I bf for 8mo & he ate every 2hrs day & night so there was no excuse for the blood. (I bled 10 straight wks pp) after that was when I had my 1mo of no blood & then I had a period every mo after that :( guess af forgot to read the rulebk for me :) LOL Good Luck, I'm hoping this next pp will be different! Maybe things will go as u want them too. Our bodies r something else ya just never know :)
i had my dd june 30th 2005 and was breastfeeding exclusivly and taking the mini pill well i was pregnant by sept and had my second dd less then a year later june 14th 2006 so dont count on not getting pregnant just because you tried so long the first time and havent yet had your period oh yeah i hadent had my period yet either.
a word of advice please dont get pregnant this soon it reeks havoc on your poor body i am 5'8 normal weight but by the 7 month mark with dd number 2 i could not walk for longer then 5 mins without being in immense pain from my pelvis just aching your body needs time to heal i could hardly walk the day i gave birth from the pain always been an active person also couldent move in bed anyway best of luck to you i could go on and on about my experiences goodluck.
