What are some of your experiences with starting to cycle after childbirth?

I am trying to get some other people's experiences with post-childbirth cycles. I had my son in September of '07. I stopped breastfeeding completely at the end of September of '08 (a month prior to that it was only about once a day). I have had no sign of a period. Im feeling discouraged because every last one of my sisters in law (5 of them) have gotten pregnant again, two of them without trying. Lol! Just curious. :)

  • I got my period exactly 4 weeks after giving birth. lol. It was light and barely there. The second month after giving birth, my period was extremely heavy and I had very painful cramps...TMI I know, lol. I've had a regular cycle since giving birth, more so than before having a child. Before the baby, it was very erratic. Don't know what to tell ya hun, sorry.
