I really haven't seen any reason to suspect you are not fertile. Your cycles are regular, etc etc. my cycles were never regular, so I kinda knew that I wasn't. I'm hoping to be regular for the first time ever that would be awesome!

Then as frustrating as all that is, I'm getting more and more nervous about af coming because after I finally get one ill start to get a pretty darn good idea of where I stand-if I get af and then don't get another for 6+ weeks well then I guess my cycles are just gonna be the same ole s*** they used to be, and I won't be very optimistic of a miracle #2. If they do somehow miraculously come back "normal" then YAY! But I don't know if I even dare to hope for that.

I want to hope for it. That somewhere along the lines pregnancy required my body's hormones to signal everything happening ON TIME, but...and sorry to dump all that on ya. It's been weighing on me lately as we get closer and closer to the one year mark. I know that 14 months is the average time a nursing mom gets af back, and I know this is all so normal, especially since I'm never away from my daughter, but I just can't help this overwhelming feeling that this is so typical of my body-af? Eh we don't need that yet.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy not having af. It's amazing when you aren't ttc. And I'm in no rush. But most in my ddc have at least had spotting. And not having had even that makes me slightly nervous.

Ok, I'm done. So so sorry to dump all that on you.
It really depends on the mom- I got mine back at 4-5 months with all 3 of mine, but with my last one, the cycles took almost 14 months to get normal. I would go anywhere from 21-36 day cycles.
That sounds like an amazing cycle! To me that would be more regular than I ever was. My I medicated cycle range is 42-84 days.

wow! It was so odd to me because I am normally right at 27 days to the T except when traveling...so to be all over the place was so odd for me.
Hopefully after weaning yours will become more of a normal

thanks! I hope so too I'm nervous about it, but I've heard that sometimes after pregnancy infertility probs can get better. I'm not sure of the odds, but one of my aunts was told she would never have kids and after she had her miracle got pregnant with twins and then a fourth! So I'm really hoping it's common.
