  • take a pregnancy test. I would not say it is normal for my period to be a week late. If you normally had irregular preiods before your pregnancy then that should give you some insight as to whats going on now.

  • Age and hormones do play a role in our cycles. And yes they can change after we've had a baby. So take a test if you want to be sure, but I think you're fine.

  • i started my period at 8 months post partum, and they were really irregular, like 40 days apart, 35 days apart, etc. so it could be that, but i'd definitely go buy a pregnancy test as soon as you can :) gl. also my periods did not start out regular, and then go irregular, they were irregular from the start, and then after several months got regular. but still i think it wouldn't be too surprising for it to go that way too.
