Pregnancy / Cycle
Hi there

I had my baby by c-section on 25 Oct '03. My periods came back on 6th Dec (after stopping breastfeeding on Nov 11th as my baby died) and then again on 6/7 January. I did ovulate in Jan (Wed21st/Thurs 22nd) but not Dec and the Dec cycle was 32 days.
Will my next period be due 14 days after i ovulated, being Wed 4th Feb or will it be 32 days again which would make it Sat 7th Feb?

I was very regular - 29 day cycle before being pregnant and we are trying for another baby. I suspect i am pregnant again but am not sure when to expect my period.

Please help!

If you are sure that you ovulated, then your period should start 14 days after this.
