I haven't gotten my period yet, 6 months postpartum. am i pregnant?

I had my son 6 months ago, and have yet to have my period return. I considered it might be due to my son still nursing every night, however since I am not nursing him during the majority of the day, I would have figured that my hormone levels would have returned to normal and I would have begun to menstrate again. About 2 weeks ago I had expected to get it again, but it turned out to only be some minor spotting and not a full period. The past few days I have been feeling very naseous, and have even vomited on occasion, my appetite has nearly vanished, and the smell of some foods have been making it worse. I remembered these symptoms as being some of the ones I experienced when I found out I was pregnant with my son, but 2 weeks ago when I experienced the spotting I took a pregnancy test and it came back negative. So, my question is, can I still be pregnant, even though I have not had my period return and I have gotten 3 negative results on at home tests? Please help!

I would say no. I didn't get a full period for 1 month after I completely stopped breastfeeding. I had gone down to once a day or less breastfeeding and still didn't get it. If your test say no..I would assume you aren't pregnant.But if you were me and like to be safe I would wait a few weeks and double check.

Or you can also talk to your doc.  Sometimes their tests are a little more accurate, and they can do a check to make sure nothing else is going on.  My understanding is as long as your nursing your not supposed to at all.  But unfortunatly i was unable to nurse so I have no experiance on that....  Good luck

As others have said, probably not, but wait and test again or get a blood test from your dr.  I'm 15 mos post-partum, still nursing, and still haven't gotten a period yet (which has been super nice).  My sister is 18 mos post-partum, still nursing a couple times/day and has had a few periods, irregular.  I've read other mom's blogs and some (despite nursing) get it back within a few mos, while others are longer.  It varies a lot.  Either way, if you're concerned about it, get it checked out, so you can end your worry!  Good luck!

Considering that it is uncertain for devotees whether these uniques will likely be available in sufficient quantities in order to reach demand, there is always a rush to find the best ones as soon as they first come out. This time around, it seems that Pandora has been recurrently sending more of to retailers so perhaps I have already been too hasty in paying a premium on two the beads I found.
