I'm at day 58 pp and had a bit of bleeding last night (dark red). I thought it was my period but now it's just spotting with blood tinged mucus (sorry; way too much info).
In TCOYF, she says that any vaginal bleeding *after* the 56th pp day should be considered a sign of resumed ovulation.
Since I'm past week 8/day 56 (and what's so special about this day specifically, anyway?), do I just go ahead and consider it a (very, very light) period? Left over lochia? Something else? (If so, what???)
FWIW, at my 6 wk pp check up after my first birth, I asked my doctor about some bleeding that I just had that morning. She checked and told me it was not lochia-- it was menstrual blood. Sure enough, it continued with the classical signs of my previous pre-pregnancy periods. I have always, with all my kids, bfed, coslept, had the babe stuck to me all day, and all that good stuff.
