In brief: Not unusual.

What you describe is not unusual.
If symptoms persist or become more severe make sure you check with your own doctor.

In brief: Most likely

A big factor is what were your periods like before you were pregant.
It can take 6 mo. After stopping all breastfeeding before your periods return to your typical pattern. If you have stopped all nursing & you still are not regular after several months, then see your doctor and let him know if you want to get pregant again or not. That is a key factor in how to address your irregular periods.
