Baby is 8 months old and I had a teeny bit of blood. Thought for sure I would have my first post partum menstruation. I've been moody and craving foods and now I have insomnia (could just be the fear! LOL) A friend said her cycle came back with "a vengeance". What do you think? (Please Please tell me I'm not pregnant!!!!)

Well, I can't telll you for sure that you're not pregnant, but it's possible that this is just your first "warning period." Often, the first period you get postpartum is not fertile, ie, you did not ovulate before it.

Your moods and cravings can be explained too--many women experience pregnancy like symptoms as their fertility returns.

Hope that helps!

peace, Beth

hi, I'm in the same boat DS is 8 months today! about a month ago I had a TINY bit of bleeding, only a bit on the toilet paper. I thought af was coming back, but then it was gone. I was afraid I was pregnant -- i wasn't since then it's happened a couple of times, and i've noticed it happens on days he spaces out his nursing. I then read (I think in TCOYF) that spotting can happen when your body is trying to ovulate again after a long period of not ovulating. It also said to consider yourself fertile for 4 days after the spotting. HTH! Erika
