period returning

When my son was breastfeeding I didnt have a period the entire time, it returned about a month after he weaned at 12 months and was totally normal.

My daughter is 10 months old and for the past month I've been spotting off and on, like I'll have brown spotting for 2 days then nothing the next few days. I've also had some cramping, I've been expecting my period to return fully by now but it hasnt. I took a pregnancy test because I was so paranoid with it being so weird, it came back negative. Does that sound like a normal period return after so long?

It varies from woman to eoman, baby to baby. It is most likely the impending return of your cycle.

It could be what they sometimes call a "warning period" that happens right before your full blown cycle returns. Your body is trying to build up enough estrogen to cycle and you're probably *so close*. This just happened to me last month, and this month I got a rip roaring period

Lucky you, mine came back at 4 months pp while nursing. I pumped for my oldest two and it came back at 8 weeks pp.

It probably is just getting ready to start soon.

I had a very light period when my oldest was 9 months, and then nothing for another 3 or 4 months. I got my period back at 13 months with my second with no prior warning. My youngest is 15 months and no period yet. I'm dreading it's return. Lol.

The 4 other times I had months of weird cramps and then a full blown horrible period. Only with my fifth did I start out with a light period before the big one hit. I made it to 25 months so I can't complain about that.

I think I just got my first period a couple days ago 😭 baby is only 8 weeks old. I guess I'm just one of those unlucky women who get the periods back early. It was nice while it lasted lol
