how are your periods since giving birth?
mine returned at 6mths with both of my sons but my oldest was on formula from 5mths and my youngest(10mths) is still breastfed.
i have had a 29day cycle and a 39day cycle and now i am on day 65, no i have not tested yet.
not sure if the breastfeeding means my cycle is a longer one???

Mine returned at 6 months and were somewhat irregular - longest was about 42 days and the shortest about 26 days. My cycles did get closer together though and then hovered around 26-29 days.
Breastfeeding could definitely be affecting your cycles, but if I was you I would also be POASing!

Yes after i had DD2 my period was very irregular once it returned at 8 months. I had what I thought was an extremely long cycle when DD2 was 16 months so I decided to POAS and got a beautiful BFP! Maybe give it a go??

I'm the opposite. Irregular periods before birth and now they're like clockwork every 27 days but the downside is I'm not ovulating until week 3 giving only a very short LP of 7-8 days . Stupid body.

Mine returned at 6months after DD4, had irregular cycles or skipping AF for the 5 months and the last 2 have been normal again but extremely heavy and painful which I put down to my tubal ligation.

well i did a poas and it is negative thankfully.
didnt really think i would have been utd as we are using condoms but there is always that small possibility.
just wish i knew when aunt flow would like to arrive.
