I had a baby Oct. 19 2004 had regular postpartum bleeding ended around Nov.30 2004. I then had a 5-6 days bleeding end of first beginning of second week of Dec. 2004. I didn't bleed again until first week of March, my baby had gotten sick and stopped nursing as much. This time was very painful, couldn't hardly stand up to walk required tylenol to help eleviate the pain. I bleed for 5-6 days like a normal period. Instead of my baby regaining her appetite she diminshed even more over the next month. I am down to almost maybe 5 feedings at most including the middle of night. Some days only 3 a day. So my question is I expected to have a period this month more so I guess because she is nursing even less then last month and I had one then. I expected to have one at the latest April 9 2004 and still no signs of spotting. I feel like I am going to start, achy back, crampy stomach(nothing like last month-pain wise) but still no period. Is it normal to have a period one month and then nothing?
It is hard to say. Have you been using birth control? Have you taken a pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy? With my son, I was nursing 24/7 (literally, he was a piggy) and I was on depo for 6 months. I didn't get my first cycle until he was a year old. I would put a call into your doctor and get their advice on this.
I breast fed both of my children untill they were 15 months and with both of them I never really got back to normal untill a couple months after I stopped. But like you I had an occasional little periods during the breastfeeding days.
