pp period ? again Little Richard's mommie! Due July 12 (boy); 1 child; Seneca, South Carolina 4430 posts

So I posted about how I'd been cramping and all I will be 6 weeks pp on Tuesday. I was cramping for several days and well I usually start my period within a day or so of cramping. I already had my first pp period at almost 4 weeks. I bled for a week after having my DS then 2 and a half weeks later I had my first pp period and bled for a few days. And now today I started bleeding again and I thought I was off the hook since I was stupid and didn't wait the full 6 weeks and barely waited 3 weeks. Well I bled for maybe 3 hours and barely even filled half the pad and I started spotting towards the end and now I have completely stopped. What is implantation bleeding like? I had a regular period or so I thought pre pregnancy and then a month later I found out I was 6 weeks pregnant. Now I am just confused. How soon does implantation bleeding happen? Could this be what this was? I hope not. When should I test just to make sure I am not pregnant?

All the bleeding could just be pp bleeding. It stops and starts sometimes. Mine did several times. Especially if your 'period' was for just a few days.

REALLY :D Oh gosh this gives me some hope then!! I mean I know it was like a period it just wasn't as heavy and it was super bright red and now almost 2 more weeks later I bled for only a few hours and I quit cramping just like with my last period only this lasted no where near as long.

It's very possible. Are you breastfeeding?

Most women who are breastfeeding don't get their pp period until much later. I EBF and didn't get my pp period until my LO was 7 months old.

No I don't think so lol. I just think it's really likely that non of that bleeding was your period.

I sadly wasn't this lucky :( had bleeding off and on till 10 weeks pp because my period came as soon as my bleeding stopped and lasted a normal week. and they've been fairly regular since then, DD is 7'5 months now and still breastfed. But OP this usually is the case, I'm just unlucky lol.

Sounds like you did have a pretty regular period before becoming pregnant.
A person who is 6 weeks pregnant conceived 4 weeks ago. OB's add two weeks on because they go by the first day of your last period, not your conception date.
I'm currently 35 weeks 5 days pregnant. Conception took place about 33 weeks and 5 days ago.
Make sense?
As for your PP period, sounds like you've gotten some good advice.
I got my first PP period around 12 weeks PP, but wasn't BFing anymore by 6 weeks PP so that's probably why I got mine so soon.
