Mine just showed up too. Sunday. We made it to 11.5 months postpartum. I was hoping it would be longer since she nurses a lot still.

I got the short end of the stick. AF showed up 2 months postpartum with both kids. My body could care less if I EBF.

wow you lucky! lol When I breastfeed my period showed up really fast. After I stopped bleeding after birth I had my regular period a few weeks later again.

10 freaking weeks... thats it. with all my babes. And with this last one I had PP bleeding for 8 weeks. 

I would love to experience this "perk" at some point ;-)

15-16 months all 3 times.
And yes, definitely random symptoms at times long before the real return.

Even though I'm EBF, my period started back around 9 weeks pp. My pp bleeding had only recently totally stopped and then I got my period! Sigh. Same thing happened to my mom though. So maybe that's just what our bodies do.
