question about your PERIOD KNZ. 3 kids; Washington 59191 posts
5th Jun '13

rather, your first PP period-
this is semi-aimed at exclusively breastfeeding people.
i thought my period started a couple weeks ago (at almost 2 months PP, i think) but it ended up just being a day of off period-like discharge (ew, sorry)



but just like, an hour ago, it started up again.



now, i BF'd with my previous two kids, don't remember with my first (8 yrs ago) but with my second, my period started when i started birth control, and it was...bad. BAD.



i'm really hoping this isn't my period (not on BC)
but to get to my question:
do you remember what the FIRST day of your first PP period was like?
does that make sense?
like, if you had break through bleeding previous to it (so after your PP bleeding but before you period) was that different than the first day of your first PP.

I don't know what is going on with me. I have the same thing. I'll randomly "bleed" or just like pink/bloody discharge for a day and then it's gone. I did get two days of bright red blood, no cramps, no clue it was coming, and then nothing. Idk what is going on.

i really hope that's what's happening with me.
i'm in such a crap mood.
got a hair cut that SUCKS. and i'm moody over that (i'm over dramatic with my hair haha)
Jason's family comes to town tomorrow and we have a TON of stuff planned for the next 6 days.
i'm gonna be so angry if my first PP period is deciding to come now. :(

Hair grows back! I don't touch my hair, I swear haha. No one can do it right, I have sooooo much hair. Idk if mine was a period, I think it was. I got it a week after I stopped pp bleeding. And then exactly 28 days later I bled for a day and a half.. it was weird.

Awww so cute. Zeke's good. Was 12lbs at his 2m checkup. Hes in the 45-50%, so normal. But still weird for me, Elli was in the 95% for everything and still is above average hahaha. He sleeps from 9:30 to 4:3, eats and then sleeps till 7-8. Elli is usually up by 8, so it works :P

Sweet!! Quinn's sleeping around 11/12pm-6/7am. But on me. He fights sleep, hard. So only really goes down and stays down once o do.




Glad he's doing well!

Aughhhhhh!!!! He's so cute!!!! He looks so much like Clara :D



Well, I wasn't BF per say, but I was pumping (before I dried up and we started FF exclusively ... Sigh), so maybe I can be of help.



My first PP period was weird. It was basically (sorry in advance) three days of brown loveliness, followed by like, a day of what seemed like a light period.



My period was wonky for months after that, though.

I had breakthrough bleeding at 6-7 weeks pp when I started BC and it was just like a period (minus the cramps). I was sure it was AF, but she didn't show again until 14 months pp. when I got real AF, it kind of came out nowhere. Some really mild cramps and spotting first, then she showed.
