Could something be changing?

Hi ladies! I'm 24 years old, just had my first child September 14th. Before my pregnancy I always had a very regular, very long cycle. Now after I lost my breast milk supply in November, I've started having periods again. They are now unpredictably long-sometimes 26-30 days. My fiance and I did the deed when I expected ovulation. My last period started 1/24. For the past few days I have felt really tired and a little light headed, had some mild stomach cramping this morning that went away after I took a nap. No other symptoms-no tender breasts, etc. I'm expecting my period maybe around 2/20. Should I wait until then to test? I bought the first response test (6 days prior to missed period). Has anyone gotten a result that quickly? I tested back with my daughter the day of my missed period. I'm really anxious to know if my body is still trying to get back in the swing of things or if I'm pregnant again. Thoughts?

My good friend just started to get her period as well after breast feeding and her cycle is all out of whack.

Her last period was 9 days late. My guess is that you are just trying to get back into the swing of things.

I would suggest you wait until the week after your missed period to do the test.
