    DD is 15 months tomorrow...and I've had a couple times when I had very light spotting, for a day or two (and a bit of moodiness), but otherwise, nothing. Don't miss it a bit!

    We're at 8 months and I haven't had a visit from AF.

    I never in my life expected to be wishing for her to show up - I want another little one, dangit!

    lovesbug responded:
    DD was about 5 months old when I got my first period, but then it was 2 months before my next one, and then a month and a half, and now I'm pregnant again, so 3 periods in 2 years... yeah I can handle that lol
    moniqie23 responded:
    with my second baby I started when she was about 3 months, but I was not exclusively breastfeeding, with the third baby I didn't have a period until my son was 16 months, with the fourth baby not until he was about 5 months old, so I think it just varies and I think the more your baby breastfeeds the longer you may go without a period. enjoy it while it lasts
