Breast feeding, having scanty periods. Could I be pregnant ?

hi i am breast feeding my baby for over one year now. ( 1yr and 2 months) My periods started very scantily last december. I got my period in January after 30 days. Very scantily too. I should have started my period (30 day cycle) on the 4th Jan. I still haven t got it. We do natural family planning . I m scared I might be pregnant. Is it common to have scanty periods while breast feeding?

During breast feeding period might be absent or delayed or might be scanty.
But as you are observing abstinence, chance of having pregnancy is less.
Ok and take care.
