I'm used to very heavy periods because of a long cycle, with (sorry TMI) 3 days of heavy bleeding, followed by 2-3 days of medium and then it tapers off. This period started off with brown spotting in the morning, then it got a little heavier but I'd still characterize it as light. I've only used light tampons and haven't bled AT ALL at night. Isn't that weird? I've never had this happen before; not once! I even took a pregnancy test yesterday because it's so weird (negative). I only had two periods between LO1 and LO2 and two between LO2 and LO3 so maybe this is normal (this is my third since LO3). I'm still nursing so maybe that would affect it as well. If this happened to you, did it drag on for weeks and weeks? It seemed questionable if I even ovulated so I was quite excited to see AF because at least that meant a normal LP so I'll be heartbroken if this doesn't even "count" as AF but it has been heavy enough to wear a tampon and it has been red. Right now, I'm on Day 3. I at least want to count this!
