SERIOUSLY?!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

So, it looks like my cycle's back in town. I started bleeding again today after more than a week without blood. UGH. Could this be something else? It's probably my period, right? This is my payback for having a good sleeper, though I think she still nurses at least every 5 hours.

 

I am making my fertile husband stay FAR FAR away from me until I get the IUD in a couple weeks.

Wow, When did you get it back with DS?  I had several times where i didnt bleed for 5-6 days then 1 day again.... but that was around 4-5 weeks pp.  Hope it is not, but sounds like it may be....

Uh oh... Is that part of LAM? That baby can't sleep more than a few hours at a time? Because Miss L sleeps 4-6 hours most nights. Not that we've DTD yet, but still (just 5 weeks PP and I have a small but annoying tear I'm waiting out).

I think that for most effective LAM baby can't go more than 6 hours without nursing. Granted, i dont practice LAM well because we use a paci and a crib for part of the night, but i was hoping to hold off AF till at least 4 months, which is when it returned with DS. Seems like my friends who dont EBF keep theirs away longer!

My period came back 4.5 months PP with DD1 and she was not a good sleeper - we nursed every 1.5-3 hours.

 

I think my period came back 1 day shy of 8 weeks PP this time (I stopped bleeding 3-4 weeks prior to that) but it was the lightest period ever.  Just spotting for 2 days, a tiny amount on a pad 1 day, and then spotting 2 more days.  My SIL said this happened to her at 8 weeks PP and then she had nothing until just last week when she had a heavier period when her son was 7 months old.  So we'll see!  Either way...I'm not taking ANY chances!  I want to get an IUD as well.

Oh no, I hope it's not that Rach! My little guy gets a 4-6 hour slug of sleep every night so I'm a little worried about this too.

Sorry, that sucks! Mine cameback ar 4.5 mo last time (after 6.5 & 10.5 months with the fiest two) I think my little man is going 4-5 hours most nights but I try to combat it by having him sleep on my chest .. (And following the other LAM/ecological bfing rules that I did not follow with #3) its not like I could wake him up he is right there next to my bare boob, there is only so much that can be done :/

Oh noooooo...I've had bad cramping and some bleeding for the past 30 hours. I thought it was a lochia comeback because I moved a lot of furniture day before yesterday, but DH thinks it might be AF. Is there a way to tell? Other than just waiting til next month...?

I started bleeding yesterday but it's not like a period. So annoyed.
