When will my menstrual cycle resume?

I have not had a period since my son was born more than 8 months ago. I am breastfeeding but I thought that it would resume sometime within 6 months post-partum. We have moved clear across the country from my midwife and I just want to make sure all is normal.

Thanks.

alot of times if you exclusively breastfeed with no supplementation it may take until you stop breastfeeding

my baby is 11 weeks but I have not seen my regular period yet I am also breast-feeding.  Is it possible for me to get pregnant even though I have not seen my period?
