Hi all,
My son is ,almost 20wks. BF and I had my 1st period since his birth at 15 wks. It has been 32 days since my last period and nothing. Usually im pretty regular. Has anyone experienced this or should I be worried about being pregnant?

I would think that it's always a safe bet to get a pregnancy test done anyways even if you suspect you may not be pregnant! stress may also be a factor in this situation! Have you been stressed out recently? I got my first regular period 16 weeks after my sons birth and have been pretty regular. Did you notice any pregnancy symptoms other than missed period? such as spotting rather than real bleeding? I realize that these are just a bunch of questions trying to answer your questions... just trying to help ease your mind a little bit. Take these things/questions into consideration before worrying yourself! I have done the same and it took 2 pregnancy tests to tell me it was just me worrying too much :)

My daughter is almost 7 months(had her July 2, 2009) and I have yet to have a cycle...I went to the ob-gyn yesterday because I was worried. She told me that when you breastfeed it can throw your cycles off because of the hormones from breastfeeding. Basically your body doesnt want to get pregnant because you're already taking care of one baby, so it tricks it's self into not ovulating lol...give it a few more days then take a pregnancy test if you're still worried about possibly being pregnant tho.
