OMG that's SO not fair! Still, your emoticon-fest made me laugh and I had to show it to DH...

Life just isn't fair sometimes.

So I guess you must've not been bleeding anymore from postpartum? When does that stop? At this point I wouldn't know the difference from pp bleeding and a period, and I didn't even have a vaginal birth.

That sucks. Sorry hon.

Not in your DDC, but I'm wondering if maybe it's not AF, but your body's way of telling you you're over-doing things?

This is what I'm thinking. When did you get your first period after your other babies? Did you have a care provider for the birth? If you did I suggest calling them and asking. You could also post a question about in the Birth Professionals forum here.

I had some bleeding at about 6 weeks PP with my 2nd ds. I called the nurse because it concerned me. She said it was just AF and not to worry about it. I knew she was wrong. There was no reason for my AF to be back so soon. I was exclusively breastfeeding on demand, co-sleeping, holding or carrying baby in a sling all the time. I couldn't even put him down to nap. He'd wake up within 20 minutes, so I had to lay down with him for all naps. After that bleeding, I didn't have anything else until about 6 months PP. Then again nothing until around 11 months PP. At that time I started to have regular bleeding so I started charting again. It wasn't AF because I didn't ovulate again until about 15 months PP. So, don't freak out yet. It may just be what the PP said, a sign that you are overdoing it.

aw bummer! the same thing happened to me last time around. She was my first breastfeed baby and we co-slept, nursed exclusivly, didn't use a paci, etc.. and I still got my period back at 6 wks. I'm expecting it this time at least so I won't be quite as mad as I was last time

That sucks.

I got my period back at 4 wks pp with my first, on top of a very serious hemorrhage at the birth. Took my iron for a loooooong time.

Second baby: 6 weeks.

Third baby: 4 months (woo hoo!) But had spotting on an off from 6 weeks that I kept thinking was my period starting.


Like you, I co-sleep, exclusively breastfeed on demand and on every whim, and didn't separate from my babes in the early months. Go figure. I also cycle ever 19-23 days. I think my body is trying to cram in as many fertile cycles as possible! If only I wanted 22 children, I'd be set!

I am sensitive to the Mamas who have to induce their periods months and years after birth so they can try and conceive again - that sucks too.

Because of the spacing of my children I havent had an actual period since Feb of 2003! I actually am almost looking forward to being on a normal hormonal schedule.

Ick. Ack. Yuck. So sorry!

I'm hoping and praying mine stays away for longer this time. It came back at 3.5 months last time.

Ugh. That really does suck.

I got mine back at 3 months pp the last two times. I'm hoping I get at least double that since I'm nursing two this time. :

*Gasp* No!! That's too soon!!

I'll be honest, I was compelled to space kids two years apart when I got my period 14 mo pp last time and remembered how much I hate AF and started TTC right away.
