ACK! AF already?!? maybe TMI

I woke up this AM and felt like I peed myself...in fact I am soaked w/ bright red blood! My lil guy is almost 3 mos old and we have been EBF since day 1!! Do I need to worry...is it normal to come back this early? It never came back til about 6 mos w/ my other babies!!

Both of mine have been EBF from days one and both times I got AF back at 6 weeks PP. I don't know why I wish she would stay away longer.

w/ baby #1, af at 4 mos,
baby #2, af at 6 wks,
baby #3, af at 6 months,

It seems a little heavy but I cant remember when my last "normal" AF was...seems like I have been preggers for the last 10 years!

Yup! Dd#1 10 weeks
Ds 7 weeks
Dd#2 8 weeks

Just doesn't seem quite fair when lots of my friends don't get it back for months and months!! We ebf for a year and it hasn't made a difference. Tina

As a gyn nurse, I can tell you...it's ABSOLUTELY normal. And it's not abnormal for it to be a bit heavier than you remember. It sucks that it came back so soon, but not abnormal. (thank GOD my Mirena keeps mine at bay!!!!) Good luck mama!
