You have GOT to be kidding me!!!

Okay, maybe I'm 'spoiled' but with my first DS I went 18 months before AF showed back up, with DD it was over a year.

Well here I am with a 100% breastfed 2 month old and I'm BLEEDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WHAT THE HELL???????????????????????????

I'm still nursing all the time, he wakes up once overnight, nurses all night and I start my period???

This is so not fair.

Re: You have GOT to be kidding me!!!

It might just be an 8 week bleed. Around 6-8 weeks a lot of mommas say they get a few day recurrence bleeding, that ends up not being AF. Thank goodness some one warned me before hand or I would have been mad when I got it. Saying that DS is almost 7 months and still no AF

Maybe you can still get lucky and not see AF for a while

Could it be breakthrough bleeding?

Most likely not AF. I bled off & on for months. Sometimes there's still little bits in there that just won't let go. Hope you feel better.

Hopefully it is not AF, that would suck.

You just had a pap, it could be from that.

I'm hoping it's just a weird 8 week thing...or from my pap, that was Friday though. Grrrr I'll be very frustrated if it is AF.

That's what I was going to say. I had it with both kids around 7 weeks PP. With DS I got AF back for real at 8 months. With DD I got it back on her first birthday!

I had the same thing happen with DD#2 and have not had any bleeding since. Maybe it could be the same for you
