What was your menstrual cycle like after giving birth?

I just had 2 babie's back-to-back. Andrew is 15 months old and Marcus is now 3 months old. I have had one hefty period after Marcus on May 19, 2012. I was expecting my next one a couple of days ago but nothing has yet appeared. A little over a week ago I had severe cramping that had me in tears and I though for sure my period was going to show up that next day...but like I said, I am still waiting. A couple of days after that I got sharp pains in my nipples. I took a test on June 19 and it was negative. I know it is possible that if pregnant, it could take a little longer to show, however, I am more worried about it being something related to my c-section. Has anyone experienced this and if so, what was the outcome. Or what was your menstrual cycle like after your baby?

This is my third child and my cycles were right on track right after my previous two.

Oh so a little history, my husband got a vasectomy around the 3rd week in April and we still had unprotected sex, however, I got my period in May so we thought we were in the all clear........

Like you said, you could be, but maybe not. I doubt it's something with your c section, it sounds like more of a normal cycle returning that takes forever. It took me several motnhs to regulate after my back to back boys also. xo
