i got my regular periods back 3 months pp while breastfeeding my son. I have had 5 30 day cycles and now over 10 weeks without a period. I feel all my old pregnancy symptoms but all tests are negative. is this normal? i have been breastfeeding the same the whole time and he still nurses at night. I thought maybe it was just hormones from bfing but over 2 months? anybody else have a similar experence?

It's not uncommon for your period to come and go while you're breastfeeding. It was different for me with each child, but with my youngest I got my period for the first three months and then it didn't return again until 3 months after he completely weaned. Even when he was breastfeeding only twice a day at 2 years old I didn't get it back.
