Period after breastfeeding stopped

My son is 10 months old and I weaned this month from breastfeeding. My period started when my son was 6 months old and its been regular. And this month I weaned and stopped feeding him completely. This month I did not get period yet. Its already 33 days. Usually mine is very regular.
Any one have any input? Is it normal that I did not get my period as I stopped breast feeding?
Any help is really appreciated.

it is normal for your cycle to be irregular for several cycles after weaning. You can take a pregnancy test for reassurance, but I wouldn't panic.

I got pregnant when I was breastfeeding...  I weaned at that point.  I'd say take a test to be sure and just wait it out!
