Missed Period - 3 Months Post Partum - Help!!

Hi everyone! I just gave birth to a beautiful baby girl (Eva) in July. I attempted breast-feeding for the first month but I wasn't producing enough, so I had to stop. I started my first post-baby period on August 20th. It was VERY heavy and lasted for about 6 days. It is now September 28th and I have not had another period yet! I am VERY concerned that possibly I am pregnant again...or is it just that my cycle is not normal? I will buy a test at the end of the week if I do not have a period, but has anyone else experienced this?

Thanks so much!

Thanks for the feedback. No, I just feel REALLY bloated...like I do right before my period. But because there has been no period, I just feel bloated. I have completely stopped breastfeeding for about 2 months, so I just don't know when I should go back to normal...it's just strange. I'm going to take a test on Friday.
Thanks for the support. I will definitely keep you posted! Congrats on your daughter too...what's her name??
