Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

1 answers
Hello!!! I am a mom of a 14 month old baby girl.. I stopped breastfeeding when she was 11 months old ( so Nov 2012). I had my first period in Dec and it lasted 7 full days. My soon to be husband and I wanted to start trying again, I was due to ovulate on the 4th of Jan. We had sex the 2nd, 3rd and 4th then again on the 7th and 8th. I was suppose to get my next period Jan 18th 2013, no period!!!! I took a test a week later and it came up negative I was very upset. I started to get cramping, and headaches so I thought my period was going to come... but nothing! Its not Feb 7th and I still do not have my period. Nothing.. no spotting, nothing! My next period is suppose to be Feb 15th... I have been getting mild headches, my back has been hurting, and I am starting to get heartburn. I took a test on Jan 23rd, negative, took a test on the 27th negative... I am so confused! I was 3 months with my daughter before I found out I was pregnant.. Could it be because my HTC levels are to low? Or could it be because i was breatfeeding and my body just isnt back to normal?

I got pregnant about three months after I stopped breast feeding because my cycle wasn't regular yet. (I was having a much longer cycle than normal and ovulated later than I expected to, so the pregnancy was a bit of a surprise.) its possible that your hormones aren't balanced yet, but it's also possible that ou are pregnant. It wouldn't hurt to see your doctor for a blood test.
