Are you breastfeeding????  If you are nursing that can delay your period for months.  I know it took like 6 months to get a period with my first due to nursing.  I do not think anyone can really say when our periods will return after giving birth.  I would possibly ask your dr when they think you will possibly get it back.  I am not looking forward to that again personally.  I am nursing my 4 wk old son now and am also wondering when the dreaded day will come again.  Good Luck and Take Care

I had my daugher in Feb. and was unable to breastfeed longer than a few days to due illness, and I panacked when I didn't start my period as soon as I had with my son, with him I started when I was 6 weeks and I was breastfeeding, I didn't finally start tis last time until my daughter was 13 weeks old and I was regular for the two months before I got pregnant again....
