I'll be 6 weeks postpartum on WEdnesday. My lochia stopped last week, and the red bleeding stopped about 2 1/2 weeks ago. On Saturday I started having some light pink spotting, and yesterday a little more. I do not need to wear a pad, it's very slight. I thought this may be happening because I have increased my activity--the weather has been so nice I've been outside with the kids a lot. I am still on restricted activity (I had an emergency c-section) and my incision is still very painful at night. So what do you guys think--is this probably due to more activity? I don't think I could be starting a period yet because I went 15 months after DS1 without any. Cas does not nurse as much during the night, however, and I know that ovulation is mostly suppressed during the nighttime/early morning hours. Is it possible that I could menstruate so early even though it took over a year after my first pregnancy? My other worry is ovarian cysts as I am prone to these, but I don't really understand how they could have formed yet since I have (probably) not ovulated. Any ideas?
