So my baby girl is 6 months old and I got my period back in February this year. Since then, I've had a period each month right on time.
I know I am probably jumping the gun here but I am a day late and no period!
I've got all my regular symptoms - bloated, tired, headache, cramps etc and had them for almost a week now but no period!
I think my period came back when our baby was sleeping right through the night and wasn't feeding as much, but the last month she has been feeding a lot more and at least 2-3 times a night.
I am EBF but she did start solids about 3 weeks ago as well.
Is it possible that the increase in her feeding is delaying my period?
My anxiety is kicking in and I'm freaking out!

Bfing messes with my cycle a lot so if ds feeds more it does change a little. So it is possible your DD feeding more is why you're late.
It's also possible to conceive as soon as af arrives (or even before)! So at two days late the best way to figure out what's happening is to do a hpt.

I'm now 2 days late so I took a HPT this morning and was a very fast negative. I'm just hoping that it's the increase in breastfeeding that is delaying it!
