Your cycle started before 11 months... you could not have gotten pregnant otherwise. Never mind that you never menstruated... ovulation comes before menstruation. The only reason day 1 of the period is considered the start of the cycle is that it is VISIBLE.

Now your body may be recovering from the miscarriage, or you're already pregnant again. Go test.

ALL return dates are normal. Some women get their periods back at six weeks, others at 2 years plus. And some go baby to baby without, as you almost did.

 every one is different. some dont get their period back until they stop BF completely (even after adding solids)..some get it right away, like me. it was 2months almost to the day after having my youngest. and it was regular only a few months later..with my oldest (who was not BF) i didnt get my period back for 4months..

i got my first af pp when my son was 15 months. it was very light and not much of a big deal. everyone is different. i could not conceive until my son was fully weaned though, he weaned at 29 months and i got pregnant almost 7 months later.
