Missed second period after pregnancy

hi,
i have one child, I had my baby on the 10th june 2010, i had my first period post pregnancy on the 8th August 2010, it is now the 20th Sept and i have not had a period for 43 days.
I did a pregnancy test which was negative. but when i was pregnant with my daughter the first 3 tests were false.
we have been fairly careful and am very confused if i am pregnant again or not.

I believe after you have a baby it can take some
time for your periods to regulate again. (someone correct me if I'm wrong though please) If you suspect pregnancy, see a doctor for a beta blood test to check your hCG levels.

I'm going through the exact same thing...had baby June 24th..had my first period August 13th and it's now October 1 and haven't had another period yet. I have been spotting very very lightly for three weeks and cramping like it's going to start but so far nothing. Getting really worried but my doctor says after you have a baby it takes time for your body and hormones to go back to normal.
