Hey mommas - My baby is 14 weeks old and I haven't gotten my period back yet. I'm worried I'm pregnant again. When did you get your period back? For context, I'm breastfeeding but not exclusively (I am pumping and nursing as much as I can though). I've been on the pill since 6 weeks and my husband used condoms for the first few weeks once we started again. Surprisingly, I can't find anything online that's helpful. Any sense of a timeframe would be tremendously anxiety-reducing!

If you’re nervous, just take a test. I keep a box of Amazon cheap pregnancy tests at home for the period of time before I get my period back for whenever I get nervous. It’s unlikely you’re pregnant if you used condoms & then got on the pill.

Varies greatly. I got mine back at 10 months with my first.

I've heard it varies greatly woman to woman. If you are supplementing with formula or solids, even one meal, it tends to come back sooner. No way to be sure other than taking an at home pregnancy test.

My baby is almost 9 months. I haven’t been exclusively BFing since 5.5 months and I don’t pump (so only BF when I see him nights / mornings / weekends). I don’t have mine back yet but I think with my first this is around the time I got it back so who knows.

Varies but I didn’t get mine back until I fully stopped breastfeeding, that was nine months with the first, 8 weeks with the second

I think it varies. I didn’t get mine back till 12 months pp. breastfed till 17 months. Mine didn’t rly come back until we dropped majority of nursing in favor of solids. Take a preg test!! Only real way to find out

I’m frustrated that I’m always expected to do everything for our LO since I’m working from home. Five days a week, I do all the drop offs and pickups. When the baby is napping, I prep all her bottles and solids to pack with for daycare. Today, on top of everything else I had to take our dog to the vet. My husband hasn’t even offered to do anything because it’s easier for me to do it.

I’ve been working 12 hours a day minimum since I was 11 years old .. so now 12 hour days feel like play for me. Also put me infront of a screen for 24 hours and I won’t move until I need to go to sleep . I have been like that since I was a kid so now it’s in my blood. I never felt I was working. I’m always curious and my mind goes 1000 miles an hour . What about you? Do you feel it’s work and CBF after 8 hours? Or you feel it’s your hood and you can’t have enough of it?
