Wanted to hear what "been there done that" women think. :) I am exclusively breastfeeding and my son is 7 months. I have had sore breasts, been tired and hormonal, and "knew" that I was going to get my period or I am pregnant (one of the two). Pregnancy tests have been negative. Then finally today, I had some brown-tinged mucus, once, and nothing else all day. Pregnancy tests are still negative, but I think that is not uncommon if I am just now having implantation bleeding. However, it seems these sore breasts have been around for a week. What is your guess? (humor me!) I won't take it as medical advice, I promise! :)
I have read online that the first period you get after baby is typically heavy. I also read that if you are breastfeeding, you can just get some spotting and that is normal too? What has your experience been?
With my first child that I was exclusively breastfeeding, my period started when she was about seven months. It started really slow spotting for a few days. I was so nervous that I was pregnant because I also felt extremely nauseous with the spotting. But it must have been the hormones that made me nauseous because it definitely turned out to be my period. And for some weird reason I can't remember with my second.
My first pp period after number six was just like that, very light bleeding, looked like older blood. Next one was light but normal color. Third one was a lot heavier.
