I'm not nursing, so my body is different, but I was also surprised with how quickly mine came back this time. Usually, I have had at least a month to two after the post-partum bleeding stops before AF. This time, the post partum bleeding stopped and three weeks later I got AF. Then again three weeks later and three weeks after that. Not really loving this new cycle of mine!! On top of them being more frequent they are SUPER heavy.

With both DD#1 and #2, I didn't get my first cycle until 19 mos pp. I sort of assumed that would be the case this time too, but DD#3 is really a good sleeper, so I go several hours overnight without nursing. Plus my older two girls and I were never really separated very often ... just occasionally for a date or short event. But this baby stays with a sitter for just a couple hours at a time 3-4 days a week since I'm now a student and I wasn't when the older girls were babies. So she also gets more bottles, etc.

I fear the increased # of bottles (they are expressed breastmilk but we know that LAM is less effective even when a mama is pumping ... it has something to do with the proximity of baby) - anyway - increased bottles combined with great sleep might equal a quicker return of AF. I hope not!! But I just kind of keep waiting ...
