    got mine back at 11wks 2days. Heavy, like when I first got them during puberty (taking the pill for two yrs lessened them untill after the birth of my baby).

    I was so disappointed to get AF 5 weeks after my DD was born. One of the added bonuses (or so I thought) would be no AF for some time. Alas I'm not so lucky, and having spoken to my Sister and Mum when mine arrived, it seems like it's all in the family.

    At least by looking at the poll, I'm not the only one.

    Cheers,

    Rachel

    With my first, my period didn't come back at all - after two years of breastfeeding I fell pregnant with my second. Elijah is now 8 months and I know I am ovulating, but no period! Yeah I know, call me a cow! I'm just glad it's not something else I have to deal with right now!!

    Not sure with Nyah, but William was 8 mths and Im 2 days late for AF now, if I am going on reguar cycles, Im normally 28 days exactly, so I'll wait another week then test.

    AF turned up on Saturday - Exactly 11 weeks post birth. So annoyed!!! I am breastfeeding every 2 hours day and night apart from a 4 hour break when Hannah has her not-so-big "big" sleep.

    With DD2 I breastfed for 12 months, AF came when she was 10 months. So 10 months of no AF! I finished b/f DD1 at 6 months and AF came a month later.

    If you don't include post-natal bleeding, I haven't had a period in 4.5 years 8-[

    That's awesome, Kelly!

    Mine came back properly last month because I cut right down on my BFing. I had some spotting the previous two months but I don't count that as full-blown AF. I also felt ovulation pains last month like I have never felt before! I told DH to stay away from me!! LOL

    That's awesome Kelly, you lucky girl!!

    I stopped BFing about 4 weeks ago and haven't had anything yet - but I think they're on their way.....
