My daughter was born December 21, 09 and is 7 almost 8 weeks old. I am exclusively giving her breast milk and I have not had any problems nursing. My milk supply is great, in fact...it runeth over! I read so many things stating that as long as I breastfed, my period will be delayed due to hormone supression. I had my post pardum OB visit January 28, 10 (at about 6 weeks). At this time my post delivery bleeding tapered off and pretty much siezed. My Dr examined me and said that my uterus was pretty much back to a smaller size and she was convinced I would not bleed much longer. Today I woke up to what appears to be a period. I am assuming that it is, since it arrived with slight cramping and lower back aches. I haven't bled in about 2-3 weeks. Is this my period? Has anyone else experianced this? It would really be a bummer to be the 1% who actually has a period while they brestfeed...I was looking forward to that perk...ugh!
