Breastfeeding/period question

My baby is 11 months. She is still mostly breastfed but does get solids when we eat. She is fed on demand. I have had a regular period for the last 5 months and a irregular for a month or two before that. Right now my period is 8 days late. I took a pregnancy test and it came back negative.



Have any of you experienced having a regular period then not while breastfeeding?

I don't feel pregnant either.

Yes, normal to go back and forth.

Yes--with my first, it came back at 3 months when he slept through the night for a while, then went away again when I realized he still needed to feed at night and er started co-sleeping. With DD, I didn't start until she was eight months old, but I was very irregular for a couple of years after that

I had that happen to me too -- I started getting my period again like 3 mos pp and I was EFB. Then at about 6 months I was like 2 weeks late and at my 6 month pp appointment my doctor took a blood test which came back neg for pregnancy and also found that I didn't even ovulate that month. My dr said it's all the hormones from breast feeding.

Thank you guys! I appreciate the responses. It's nice to know how crazy hormones can be.

Before pregnancy mine was clock work, every 28 days on the dot, now PP I got my first period 1-1-13 and just got my second 2-14-13  so thats like a 44 day cycle, lol. I've heard of women going months inbetween. I was joking with DH, I said well since a woman's cycles are eregular while Bfeeding I guess I will know if I'm preggo when I feel something moving, lol.
