Hi Manchak!

My baby was also born in Dec, and I haven't had any periods yet. Sometimes I get cramps, but so far nothing. I've heard it can take several months for everything to get back on track.

I guess if u r breastfeeding, then it might take a while before u get ur periods on track. I am pumping (which amounts to breast feeding). I delivered in Nov and have been having my periods since Christmas. Not very regular but I have had 4 periods already. In Feb it lasted for 2 weeks though and it seemed a lot diff than regular AF.
