Hello everyone, I was wondering what your experiences with your first postpartum periods while breastfeeding were? I am a year PP. April 30th, I had spotting and cramps, which stopped the following day (was more like pink-tinged cm), June 1st, I had the same sort of issue. It picked up to an actual bleed on the 2nd for about 10 minutes, and then dissipated again. If I checked my cm, for the following days, it was tinged pink (so I guess it didn't stop on the next day...but it was no longer showing on toilet paper, only when I checked, so I classified it as stopping). Any ways, if those were actual periods somehow, my cycle is 33 days long, and it would explain the ewcm and ovulation cramps I've had this week (ewcm from 20-23, cramps on the 22 & 23). Any ideas?

Thanks!

Ugh, I think everything postpartum is "weird" LOL. I think it's probably your period. I didn't ever get cramps before pregnancy, but with all three of my pp periods (18 months pp now) the cramps have been brutal and the bleeding irregular (a flood one time, next to nothing the next but it was 2x as long).

Ha! It gets so much weirder. So I started bleeding again the other day, very lightly, and checked my cervix, and thought...weird...it's really high, and soft! So I peed on an OPK, which was positive (still bleeding at the time), and yet again this morning...positive OPK, and ewcm. I think I finally O'd this afternoon...now my cm has changed to creamy, and the bleeding has stopped, but my cervix is still really open. So funky short period might = ovulation. I'll let you know if I'm pregnant or have a period in two weeks wink1.gif

Will do! GAH! I swear Ihad ovulation pains...came home, tested on an OPK again...more positive than this morning. I want to think I'm pregnant, but my cervix is soo open. It's beginning to firm up, my cm is creamy, and I could of sworn I ovulated though, so not sure what is going on :S

Spotting during ovulation is pretty common.

Update: OPKs turned neg at the end of the day two days ago. I tested my temp that morning, and it was 96.68, and the following morning it was 97.7, so I assume I ovulated that morning. This morning (2dpo), my temp was 97.3, so I think that must be that dip people talk about at 2dpo, but only time will tell smile.gif the bleeding also stopped when the OPKs went -, and my cervix is now low, and cm is creamy.
