Seems to me that I cramped the month before AF and then nothing and the next month more cramps and then spots, and Just this month had a normal cycle.

I'm still breastfeeding, Kylie is almost 8 months (on the 29th) and I haven't had AF either. I did have some cramps about a week ago that lasted for a few days and I thought she was coming but nope.

I got my first pp period at a year with my first. No sign yet this time. The cramping could be your body gearing up. But you may want to poas if you hsd an oops. You can get pg before your period comes back!

Thanks, ladies, for the advice! I did poas yesterday, just in case- negative. And then AF came today. Can't say I missed her much these 17 months. =)

I actually had a period at 2 months PP then haven't had one since. I'm exclusively BFing so I was surprised when I even got that first one. I've wondered when I could expect to get it again. DH comes home in March and I've got no birth control lined up, so we shall see.

I have been feeling the exact same way.

Bummer that it's back already :( I'm hoping for longer than a year this time, since this time I'm not TTC again!

What are you going to use for BC? I got the Mirena and love it :)

Julianne- So strange about af at 2 months and then nothing. I remember with my first daughter my body was out of whack for a while- 35 or more day cycles.
And YAY about your DH coming home!!

Aimee- I know what you mean about peace of mind. I'm not crazy about getting AF, but at least I know I'm safe for a while. =)
