PP AF?

Has anyone gotten their first pp af? For you btdt Mamas, how long did it take you to have af return especially those of you that formula fed your lo's? I'm getting that familiar achy breast pain and some ovary/ovulationesque twinges so I'm wondering if af is trying to return. My pp bleeding has completely stopped too, which is nice.

My first time pp, I completely stopped bleeding ~4wks, had all signs that pointed to oing and 2 weeks later bled again. But my first real ppaf was about 14 months pp.
.... But with #2, I bled off and on for 8 wks (talking lochia, not ppaf) and ppaf returned at about 12 months?
I bfed both times though. I think it really is different for everyone bf and ff, some people start right away, some people wait a few months.

I was breastfeeding, but both times I had bleeding for 6 weeks after delivery, then AF came back at 8 months.

I bf for about a week with my oldest and AF returned about 4 weeks after my pp bleeding stoped.

Thanks for the info Amber. I'm expecting mine to come back any time.
