What was your 1st period PP like?

I am trying to figure out if I'm about to get aunt flo back, so looking to find out other mamas experiences. Was it lighter, heavier, crampier?
Has anyone had a period while taking the mini-pill & breastfeeding? My OB told me I shouldn't have a period while on the pill, & sure enough, PP aunt flo has not come yet, at 6 months.
However, in the past 2 weeks, we have introduced solids to ds-just a little; he still nurses very frequently. For the past 2 days I have had period-like cramps (pretty bad ones) & clear discharge (tmi) but no period.
I never thought I'd miss my period, but at this point I am kind of hoping it shows up just so I can stop wondering!

I wasn't on the pill, but my first one came back at 9 months with my first and 8 months with my second. They were normal, though much less crampy and awful than before I had kids.

Thank you, I really hope this is just a false alarm, but I wish I shared your "less crampy" thing--this stuff hurts!

No info on the pill...but my first few PP periods were awful! They did get better overtime but the first few were really painful and heavy. I was pumping at the time.

Well, my periods before were heinous. Even with Pitocin, labor pains weren't as bad as my cramps when I was a teenger. Until transition anyway.

Holy cow! Endometriosis? I have really bad ones but not as bad as that. I am glad you found some relief!

We suspected it when I was a teenager, but I was never diagnosed.
