no periods?

It seems that peri menopause (or menopause?) may be in full effect.  I had two periods since having my DD.  One at 5 months and one at 6 months.  Both were heavy and unpleasant.   I have not had one since and there is no chance that I am pregnant-NONE!  So, it has been months without a period.  I am still nursing, but DD is eating more and more solids and I have pretty much cut back pumping to once (or no times) a day and am using my stash for daycare bottles.  It just seems rather sudden though doesn't it?  My cycles were always so regular even when going through fertility treatments.   I have not gone to the dr partly because I would prefer not to have my period if I don't have to (no good has ever come from it!) and partly because I have been busy.  Do you think it is okay to just sort of let this continue or should I go to the dr to get checked out?  Has this happened with anyone else?  Did periods come back?  I am sort of scared to think how heavy it might be after all this time.  BTW-I am 42.
