I was wondering when you all got your periods back. I'm four months postpartum. No periods.

I got mine at 5 months pp, but it's been hit or miss- so far only 2 out of the 4 months since I got that first one.

I'm 7.5 mths pp and have not had the slightest sign of af returning. I must say I've enjoyed not having one since January of 2012 ;) I've probably just jinxed myself saying that though...

This is from kellymom.com, regarding your cramping:

"It is not uncommon for breastfeeding mothers to report cyclical cramping or PMS-type symptoms – symptoms of an oncoming period without the period – for weeks or even months before their period returns. When this happens, the body is probably “gearing up” for the return of menstruation, but breastfeeding is still delaying the return of fertility."
