Totally normal, especially with 1st baby or if you are particularly thin. Some people use breastfeeding on demand to space births for this reason.

I didn't have any periods while breastfeeding. With my first, I breastfed for 12 months, with my second it was 14-15 months. After I stopped, I had erratic periods for about 6 months (had only 2-3 periods during those initial 6 months)

It's fairly normal to not have periods during the initial breastfeeding, but I would say that even if you continue, you could see a period coming back within the next couple months. If you stop, I would say you're almost assured. It may be erratic while your cycle readjusts, but it'll even out again :)
