Has anyone had an inordinately long PP AF? I'm now on day 26- and while there have only been a few really heavy days, it's more than a touch annoying. I don't recall any this long with previous kids.

I've been monitoring for signs of infection/bright red bleeding etc, and there's nothing worrisome.

My PP cycles were very short (21 days), but I would bleed for at least 10 days. and heavily. UGH. I'm inching up past 21 days, and the last period was a respectable 7 days with only 2 days of heavy bleeding.

My first PP cycle was at 28 mos., and that was 7+ months ago.

DS, 10/07. Allergies: peanut, egg, wheat. We've added dairy back in. And taken it back out again. It causes sandpaper skin with itchy patches and thrashing during sleep. Due w/ #2 late April, 2012.

Nope, I just got my ppaf at 13mo pp and it was on the short side (4 days instead of 6).. I think I would start to get concerned if I bled for 26 days, perhaps you should check with your ob?

I have a call in, but the earliest appointment I can get is in October. BLAH!

I mostly want it to stop so I can return to normal cycles and start charting while DH is away for a few months lol.
