We are now on somewhat of a schedule. My son is 16 months, will be 17 months on the 8th. I have been back at work since he was about 3 months old. We supplement with rice milk (allergies). I pump maybe 4 oz at work now, nurse him when I get home and then again before bed. He does randomly wake up in the middle of the night and we nurse then. I may also pump a small amount in the morning before work depending on how the night went.
My periods returned at 14 months and even though it was only 2, they seemed normal and the second was at the correct time following the first. I am now 11 days late although 3 at home test were negative.

Sorry, I am confused as to what you mean.
From my son's birth, I did not have a period until he was 14 months old. It just returned. I am wondering if it can start and stop or if there is chance I am pregnant again.
I don't want to go on the mini pill, I would actually like to get pregnant again...
I believe my periods did start 2 months ago but it seemed they have now stopped.
Is there any reason why a home test may give a false negative.
in my situation
Ok, so what you are saying is that the only way is to wean. Why can some nurse through pregnancy then?
Ok, and even though we can significantly reduced the amount of nursing, this can still cause the above
Sorry, have significantly reduced
Ok, so that really is my only option?
Ok, thank you.
I know, I didn't anticipate my period being gone for so long. yes, I have continued with the vitamins.
Is the current recommendation for nursing 1or 2 years?
I know. We have been dedicated.
Thanks for time and answers.
