I am breastfeeding my son and he is 7 months old. My period has not returned at all yet. For a whole week I was craving carbs and chocolate. Yesterday I had some very slight brown spotting and slight cramping. Today nothing at all! Wth? I want my period to come back so I stop feeling so bloated. Is this my period trying to come back or what?

Probably. I have cravings about once a month but still haven't had a period and have been nursing about 17 months. It sounds like you should get it soon.

Thanks! This is my first child so i wasnt sure of whats normal and whats not with this period thing. Some moms say they go right back to having their periods. I have been told since I work full time that i should have already had my period return, bc i got so long with out breast stimulation :/

Probably. I didn't get mine until DD was 9 months. Even then it was irregular and hated me. I would cramp really badly and it would last a day or two then take a day break then come back for like 4 more days. I think my body wanted revenge for no periods ;)
