  • Very normal.
    If you are breastfeeding, you may not have a normal cycle until you wean. Be aware, you can still get pregnant.
    If you are not breastfeeding, it may still take several months for your body to re-regulate.
    Either way, the timing of your period (near the end of the month) may very well change.

  • wow lucky you, even with breastfeeding I got my period back when my little guy was 7 weeks old, one whole week without bleeding, lol. My son is 8 months old, and still very wacky. It comes every 5-8 weeks. I keep freaking out and taking pregnancy tests, since my little guy is a condom baby, lol. But it is VERY normal for your period to be wacky.

  • I think it's normal for your cycle to be all out of wack. My son is 9 and 1/2 months old and I still haven't gotten mine. He's still nursing almost exclusively, so I guess he's doing his part to make sure he's an only child for a little longer! Haha!
