I remember exactly when I had my last period. It was the end of July, 2010. At the time, it was devastating. My husband and I were trying to conceive, and I had convinced myself that I was pregnant. I had put on 6 lbs and I was late-ish. I never had a standard 28-day cycle, so “being late” was fairly relative. When that monthly visitor came, we were so discouraged we thought we should stop trying all together and run off to Europe for a year instead.
Obviously, I got pregnant the very next month. I then went nine glorious months without a period, and let me tell you I didn’t miss it one bit. I had Tate and started biding my time until I starting having periods again. I am still waiting.
Don’t get me wrong, I still don’t miss having a period, but frankly 16 months later it’s a little unnerving when another month comes and goes without it. I’ve heard that I may not get another period until I wean Tate (which I have no intention of doing any time soon).
If you nursed, how long before your periods came back? And how was it?
