You had your babies did you get your first period?

I dont remember how long it took with my first.

My baby will be 10 weeks old on sunday and I have not started yet. My mom is freaking out now cause I told her I have not started yet. I brought it up a few weeks ago in the jan 2010 baby group. Some moms said they started after 5 weeks, some didnt have it yet at that time. One mentioned her ob saying it might not come till 12 weeks. Im not breast feeding eaither.

It took me about 5 or 6 months. My SIL never started until after a year or a year and a half. Totally normal! :-)

Did either one of you breast feed?

Im not, so I was just checking. I hear if you do, its normal to not have one.

I was breastfeeding for awhile but it was like almost 2 months after I stopped breastfeeding, so 3 months after she was born.
