My baby was born 5#15oz(I was 38 weeks) and at 8 weeks old he was 12.5lbs! He is noticeably bigger now(10 weeks) but I haven't weighed him.

That's interesting, I just assumed getting a period means you ovulated.. I'm pretty sure it does for me. I think my body is a little 'too' fertile... too bad I have horrible pregnancies and labors that have all ended in surgery. I had serious issues...

I've been so busy with a newborn, two three year olds and trying to recover from a c-section I didn't notice anything... but this is most certainly a period.. same old yuck, hormonal, increase in appetite/thirst, more bms, feeling a little cold and nauseated and the bleeding is very different from my lochia and exactly like my period. I got it back 4 weeks after my twins too,...
I was bleeding a bit for the first 3 weeks and have been having a hard time healing -- so when I saw the blood the first thing I thought was that I had overdone it and the lochia was returning... but I know 'Aunt Flo' well and with the way I feel and how heavy the bleeding is now, it really couldn't be anything else.
I just posted this on a different thread, but if I could do it all over -- I would have ordered a whole stash of nb and small AIOs from this WAHM: I can't recommend enough these AIOs: www.hyenacart.com/clothcurious I'm not affiliated in any way I just love the diapers. They are quick drying AIOs(AI2s really). Although they are sized -- sizes small should fit good from 8 or 9 lbs and mediums will last most kids to toddlerhood. I've never tried another cloth diaper...
I can recommend enough these AIOs: www.hyenacart.com/clothcurious I'm not affiliated in any way I just love the diapers. They are quick drying AIOs(AI2s really). Although they are sized -- sizes small should fit good from 8 or 9 lbs and mediums will last most kids to toddlerhood. I've never tried another cloth diaper yet that is so trim, easy to use, quick to dry and pulls moisture away from my kid's bum and into the diaper -- I really like that I am supporting a WAHM....
I started bleeding a little late April 1st, babe was born March 2nd... so what is that 29-30 days? : I was worried, thought I had injured myself internally(had a c-sec)... but it finally dawned on me this morning that this is a freaking period. Well, better to have a period than to be injured anyway. At least I now know I'm not the only one -- thanks for sharing... does anyone know why though?
This happened with my twins three years ago -- but they were premature and I was only able to pump so I attributed it to that. This baby nurses around the clock and has never gone more than 3 hours without needing to nurse. What gives?! Anyone know what factors are involved in the period being delayed or not with exclusive bfing??

My baby has never gone more than 3 hours without nursing -- and it is usually every 30 mins to an hour! I wonder what hormones make one more likely to menstruate right away rather than delayed? Anyone know?
