Re: period?
I've gotten AF back at 9 weeks with my ds and 11 weeks with my dd, and I'd say they've all been very light. It's not fair though is it? :cry: I mean, come ON... I was expecting it to be away for at least 6 months. I was still nursing about every 2 or 2.5 hours day AND night when I got it back both times :(

But yes, very light and not too crampy. I've always had light AFs though, so that's not new to me.

Re: period?
I got AF back just three days after the end of my post-partum bleeding. It's been every 29 days since then. And it's been heavier than it was before by about two times. I think I'm not typical, tho.

Re: period?
Thank you mamas!
I may be calling the county and asking to get put back on bc pills (which because I had my tubes tied I don't need them) if its any worse than when I was a teen, so far the aches are almost as bad which really scares me. I was hospitalized once as a teen because I was loosing way too much blood, and it was almost a "normal" period for me. I'll be watching to see what other mamas say too.

and no it certainly isn't fair! I am nursing it seems like ALL DAY LONG lol. sometimes every hour in the evening, but thankfully she is a good night sleeper, she gives me at least 5 hours straight.

Re: period?
I got mine back this time at 3 months pp. (Don't remember with my first.) It was very heavy and then my next one was pretty normal. Haven't gotten another one. Got pg instead. :giggle: Some people will do ANYTHING to keep from having to deal with AF. :lostit:

Re: period?
Mine was around 12 weeks and wasn't terrible, but rougher than I expected and have been a bit better since then. I have endometriosis and expected it to be easy, but I think because it was so soon, things were still moving around and getting back to 'normal' inside!
