Everyone is different. Some women won't get a period the whole time they nurse, others like myself got mines back while nursing 2.5 months after I had my son! Every woman's body is different so I would not expect a certain time frame. Just let mother nature run her course and always be prepared. (Mines arrived on my birthday...wth!)

This exactly! With some of my kids, I got my period a week after the post partum bleeding stopped. But inbetween my youngest two, I never got a period before I got pregnant again!

And just a heads up when it does finally get here it will be like scary heavy. I was so freaked out when mine came. I wish someone would have told me what to expect.

Everyone is so different. We won't be able to tell you.

I can't speak for anyone but myself. I got mine about 2-3 weeks after the post partym bleeding had stopped.

It can be anytime. I have 4 and with each child it came back at different time.

I nursed fulltime until about a week ago (my supply has taken a massive dive, so we are switching to formula)  but mine came back when PP bleeding stoppe. I started the shot 6 weeks after he was born, and spotted randomly until about July, now it has been nothing at all.

I stopped nursing at 2 months and af showed up at 2 1/2 months pp.  It's different for everyone.
