I think I just got my period. My pp bleeding stopped two weeks ago and I have mild cramping, so I think this is it. We're exclusively nursing, and I got my period early on with DS1 and we were exclusively nursing, too, so I think I just may be in that small percentage of women who get it no matter what. Anyone else?

Oh!! Dh and I had sex this morning, too! Maybe that's it. I kind of hope so, because I would welcome a little more time without Aunt Flo.

About two weeks after my initial bleeding stopped, I had more bleeding. The on-call OB thought it was my period, but when I went for my six week follow up appt., my doctor thought it was just me being overactive. I'm now 11 1/2 weeks postpartum and have not had any more bleeding so I am inclined to beleive that it was just from being too active.

I've been feeling crampy and bitchy like I'm about to start my period too. I'm convinced I'm going to be one of those unlucky ones.

I had a little bleeding, but......um, it was just my 'rhoids.

Hopefully the will stay away from us all!

My bleeding stopped a 5 weeks pp and 2-3 weeks later I had spotting and cramping. I was sure it was my period but it never progressed. Based on prev posters, it sounds common!

I had bleeding until about 3-4 weeks postpartum and then BAM! On EXACTLY 8 weeks (2weeks ago)... got my period. : It is so not fair!!! Grace is exclusively BFed and is attached to said Boob CONSTANTLY!! It's not fair! Longest I've gone was 6 months after DD#1 was born. I even had 3 periods in the 10 months postpartum between DS#1 and DS#2. With DS#2 I got it back on exactly 3 months postpartum and was suddenly like clock work for the next 9 months until I got pregnant this last time. Why don't I get to have a break from it? I know so many people that don't get their periods back for over a year some even as long at 20+ months but not me apparently.

It's not fair! <stomps foot>

I've gotten mine back at 9 and 12 months. No period between #1 and #2.....exclusive breastfeeding is NOT effective birth control

I delivered 7/7, had about a week and half of pp bleeding (though never too heavy) and about 5 weeks after birth, had what seemed like one of my periods - heavy bleeding for 1-2 days, then light for a few more days, some initial cramping -- all my norm. It hasn't returned, however, and I know I'm not pregnant (unless it was immaculate conception, lol), so I figure it was just the pp hormone rush working out.
