Weaned ~3 weeks ago...no AF?

About how long after weaning should I expect first PPO or AF? We've been TTC, and continued to do so through weaning. About 1.5 months ago, I took Talia (almost 11 months) down from ~8-9 feedings per day to 3, plus a few at night. Then, about a month ago, down to 2 times/24 hour period (with only one breast offered at each feeding). A little over 3 weeks ago, she was fully weaned. Is there much variation in when to expect first PPO after weaning? (Haven't taken a HPT yet, but will soon if no AF.)

Well...I just read in "mothering your nursing toddler" that if you haven't had AF in 6 weeks, you should check with your doctor. So it still could be a bit. I have no personal experience, though, as AF returned at 13 months for me without weaning.

It's a tough situation, as you don't want to waste HPTs if you just need to wait! GL to you!

I weaned my first dd at 10mnths of age and did not have AF arrive until 8wks later. Sometimes it can take awhile for the body to get started again. HTH.

Hmmm, did you have an AF after your m/c last month? That, along with the bfing and weaning could have your hormones way whacked. It may take a few more weeks for them to get back in line.

GL to you, and I hope things get sorted out soon.
