I guess it's normal? (OT-ish)

So AF returned to bless my life on March 9th. And has not returned since. . . :shrug:
All HPT's (and there are a lot) have been BFN's. I have days where I really feel like I'm pg though. Heartburn, fatigue, nausea. I guess it could be psychosomatic.

I'm gonna go with normal. I had three days of spotting a month ago. My friend had me all worried I was pregnant. Have tested twice since with BFNs. I had myself convinced one day that I was pregnant because I had had bad headaches all week, which reminded me of the horrid headaches I had while pregnant in my first tri.

The funny part? Now I'm wondering if I want a 2nd one sooner rather than later. Has to be the crazy in me talking because I do NOT need to be pregnant while taking care of a baby with DH still in training and gone long hours.

I always think I'm pg. I think hormones are tricky and can be out of whack for a while, seems normal to me.

I'm going to say normal. I've felt like I've ovulated for 2 months in a row now but haven't gotten AF. I even tested last month around when I'd be late just to be 100% sure. Anything is possible even with an IUD.

So THIS is how all those pregnancy test companies stay in business. All of us crazy people with wacky hormones! ROFL

I'm going to go with normal too as I remember it being like that after DS1.

Erin--I'm pretty certain I ovulated too and still nada. My GF said she learned there can be ovulation going on without stuff to shed hence no AF. I've never heard that before but I guess it could be true?

yep, totally normal! I've had two since Charlie came, one in January and one in March. It was wonky after Ethan too- but in the every-two-weeks kind of way.

I'm gonna say normal based on what I've heard from other people. Mine come back on time and every 4 weeks right away EBFing, that's abnormal. AF's all over the place or nonexistent sounds pretty normal.

Definitely normal. When AF came back after DD I had 2 60+ day cycles, then a couple of 45ish day ones, which slowly got shorter until they were somewhat back to normal. I've tested a few times since I've had Luke too. Even with Mirena in, I've still been paranoid b/c I've not gotten AF since my post-insertion bleeding stopped.

I have noooo advice; lol; but what the girls have said previously makes awhole lotta sense! I don't have any memory as to when AF came back w DD1 and I still haven't gotten any kind of period since getting pregnant w Sophie!!
