You guys...I think I'm getting my period already. I stopped pp bleeding completely by around 4 weeks, and here at 6.5 weeks I'm getting some bleeding again, and I've gotten a few small zits on my face.

WTH? I bf on demand, which I thought was supposed to keep aunt flo at bay for at least 6 months. I feel cheated of a few more period-free months!!!

I before E, except after C.  Weird.

In my last ddc (dec 2005) a few of us had a weird pp bleeding thing at either 6 wks or 8 wks (I don't remember) that we thought was our periods starting, but turned out not to be AF. I didn't get real AF until 11 mos pp.

Last time I had a return of post-partum bleeding at 9 weeks, a few weeks after my bleeding had stopped. It went on for a few days, then stopped again. I was period-free for well over a year.

Birthjunkie--thanks for the link! How funny we had almost exactly the same post title and sentiments!

Mae & ROM--thanks for your replies! Mae--that's a real bummer...

I actually had my 6 week PP checkup w/ my midwife today and told her about the bleeding--she said it wasn't a period, but just my body getting rid of any leftover stuff up there (but said much more eloquently than that...), so I'm hoping that's the case!
