I had some spotting and a really light flow for a few days last month. If it was my cycle and not just some wonky spotting, I'm due to have it again in a few days. I didn't get my cycle back with DD until she was 11.5 months old (we were BFing and EBF the first 6 months). As annoying as AF is, I kind of don't mind because with DD I had a long "limbo" phase where I'd get all the symptoms and nothing would happen. My OB swore I'd get it any day around 6 months in after they did a u/s but it still took forever.

I think it came back earlier this time around because DS started sleeping longer stretches then DD did at this age.

I am in the limbo phase... and I don't even exclusively breastfeed, though since I technically feed both kids - well who knows what my hormones are doing. I feel like I am in limbo and it could start any second, even got some acne which for me is a sure sign.

Nothing yet. I actually can't remember when I got it back with DD1 but I think it was around 4 months, but I was pumping and nursing her, with this one only nursing

This is the first time I haven't gotten mine back right away. I usually do. But now since I've typed it out, it'll probably start tomorrow. Lol.
