How long after giving birth did you get your regular period again?

With My first two kids, i got my period again at 8 weeks post partum. Now with number three, i'm 14 weeks out and havent gotten it yet. I'm kinda glad i havent but it makes me nervous at the same time. Really dont want to be pregnant again this soon. Some insite and thoughts woukld be great! Thanks!

  • about 4-5 months with ds and 3-4 w/dd ... in both cases it was a precursor (sp?) to my milk drying up.

  • 18 months with the first, and just coming up on 18 months with the second and still no period. Very, very normal while you are nursing.
