i'm a little concerned, my period normally comes any time between the beginning and the middle of the month, this would be my 3rd period since DS was born in march. but so far no period. i'm not on birth control, but we do use condoms when we have sex, which is hardly ever because it's still not very comfortable for me, i had stitches and sex has frankly never been the same. dh and i have talked about having a 3rd baby, probably when DS (6months) was a couple years old. definately not so soon. i mean i'm just beginning to get to "know" DS and i'm afraid of losing the bonding time while he's so young. my 2 kids are 4.5 years apart. i know it's not quite the middle of the month yet, my periods are always sporratic, but i am just worried. i'm not sure if i could handle another baby right now. i want all my attention on the 2 i have right now. abortion is a no. advice? periods tend to be off after a birth, but for how long?

I always went on birth control right after my kids were born so they were always regular. This time I got my tubes tied but my period has been dead on coming every 4 weeks since then.
My older 3 kids are all close in age. My oldest was 6 months when I got pregnant the 2nd time and he was 4 months when I got pregnant the 3rd time (I really suck at taking birth control). They are 15 months and 13 months apart and it was a lot of fun. They are 10, 9 and turning 8 and do everything together.
