From my experience, yes, it could be...Just like it took awhile for your cycle to be "normalized" when you first ever started your period.



But, I'm not positive, and I've never had a "set" cycle...so if I were you, I might ask my doctor...just in case.

Loz, you're welcome!



And, yes, things do change, drastically once you've had the baby. I actually found out that some things take YEARS to get back to normal!



LOL...I'd have LOVED to be able to set my calendar on every x number of days! Actually, now, since I've had my kids, and my body is finally telling me I'm back to normal, I do have a set cycle...21 days. But, before the kids? It was anyone's guess...I could estimate, but couldn't be sure.



But, if you're not feeling right, or something feels "off", then check with your doctor, just in case. And good luck with your little one!
