  • it took me 4 months with my first one and it took around 5 months with my second (but i found out I had a retained placenta which was causing it), and I did not breastfeed.

  • The next month. I was breastfeeding and pumping and I had heard that if you are bf, your period would not come back for a while. So I freaked when I saw blood, and the MA said "Honey, that is your period". Maybe it had to do with my not getting much milk? I was bummed though to have "Aunt Flo" begin her monthly visits, even more so because I thought it would be a while before "she" came back.

  • My first three it was about 6 weeks. But the fourth it took 6 months it was a nice six months. as much as you wish it would come right now believe me you will be missing this time when it comes lol.
