Hey All,

So for those who don't follow the TTCing thread, me and DH have been "not preventing" basically since James was 5/6 months old.

For those who didn't use hormonal BC and were BFing, what was your first AF like? (Or for others once you started cycling again PP too, but please explain your situation).

Was your first cycle a normal length? I had my first PP Af with James when he was 4 months. I think they were pretty regular after that, but I've never had super regular cycles. (regular for me is 28-42 days...). I do remember that first AF being pretty heavy though.

How many cycles did you have before they seemed more normal (if they didn't start off normal)? I think they basically started off normal, but again, I do not cycle in a typical way ever, I'm pretty sure they were fairly regular though, because I don't remember any pregnancy scares prior to getting pg with David ;-)


For those who nursed through part/all of their pregnancy:

How old was your nursling when you got pregnant, and how many times per day were they nursing at that point? So, James was 10 mos when I got pregnant with David. I think he was still nursing 3-5 times a day at that point.

Did they wean during the pregnancy?

For me it was very light and very crampy.

Thanks so much for everyone's thoughts!

This first one was super light for me--glad to hear that is normal--maybe 2 days and it never really HIT.
