What was your first PPAF like?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Is it possible that my first PPAF was just spotting?

 

My DS is almost 15m old and about 3 weeks ago I was pretty positive that I ovulated for the first time since he was conceived.  I was not temping, but I had a week of EWCM accompanied by increasingly sore nipples and change in CP.  I think I Oed on Dec 6.  On Dec 12 I had a day of spotting and assumed that I was getting my first PPAF.  It felt like AF. . .I was super-duper tired the day before, I had some cramps (although mild), had chin acne, and had the revved up feeling I get around AF.  But I only had 24 hours of anything and it was mostly brown with only about a tsp of red blood at one point. 

 

Since then nada. . .not pg and no more spotting or bleeding.  So either I didn't ovulate or that spotting was AF.  I have started temping since then, so hopefully I'll know what's going on soon.  But I was curious as to what others experience was with their first PPAF. Light? Heavy?

Mine was very light, which surprised me as I had read to expect the 1st one to be more painful and heavy. I only had to use liners for 4 days and had no cramping. Pre-pregnancy I never had real heavy AF to begin with and rarely had cramps. My 2nd PPAF seemed normal.

My first was a lot lighter than normal and I didn't have any usual symptoms (cramps, back cramps, sick feeling, etc.)  ...just some light bleeding.   Each one got increasingly more "normal."

Quite normal, major sign of it was sore boobs while breastfeeding week before.
