Why, hello, AF!
I got mine too =/ last week. DD2 was all of 2.5 weeks old on day 1.
And yes, I'm sure mine was AF as well. I have a history of it... DD1 was born 10 months after DS was, so I ovulated really quick. After DD1 it took 10 months to get my cycle back, but I guess this time I got mine back at 2 ish weeks again, just like after DS. (And yes.. I'm exclusively nursing her, lots of skin to skin, wearing her most of the day, etc.) Bah.
I dunno what to do about birth control either! We're "done" I think, but don't want to do anything irreversible just yet. BUT I can't do anything hormonal, can't do condoms, and the copper IUD I had implanted in me before. I think we'll just have to go back to the trusty withdrawal method (which always worked for us, ironically), but considering another pregnancy could be super bad for my health, I'm not sure I'm all that comfortable with the risk. I was hoping I wouldn't have to deal with making these choices so soon, it would have been nice to have a bit of a break from fertility first!!
We're not comfortable with any artificial birth control which leaves natural family planning and lactational amenorrhea- which is what we did after DD, and we were very successful. Of all the principals of ecological breastfeeding, we seem to be missing comfort nursing the most. He just hasn't been able to nurse to sleep with my oversupply going on, and I can't calm him with nursing. I'm just going to keep trying to get there and hope to stave off ovulation.
As it turned out, I only bled for one day, and then it was gone. I'm guessing it was a mini period, so I guess I'll just be watching my cervical fluid like a hawk from now on!
