Is it possible that my first PPAF was just spotting?

 

My DS is almost 15m old and about 3 weeks ago I was pretty positive that I ovulated for the first time since he was conceived.  I was not temping, but I had a week of EWCM accompanied by increasingly sore nipples and change in CP.  I think I Oed on Dec 6.  On Dec 12 I had a day of spotting and assumed that I was getting my first PPAF.  It felt like AF. . .I was super-duper tired the day before, I had some cramps (although mild), had chin acne, and had the revved up feeling I get around AF.  But I only had 24 hours of anything and it was mostly brown with only about a tsp of red blood at one point. 

 

Since then nada. . .not pg and no more spotting or bleeding.  So either I didn't ovulate or that spotting was AF.  I have started temping since then, so hopefully I'll know what's going on soon.  But I was curious as to what others experience was with their first PPAF. Light? Heavy?

Mine was very light, which surprised me as I had read to expect the 1st one to be more painful and heavy. I only had to use liners for 4 days and had no cramping. Pre-pregnancy I never had real heavy AF to begin with and rarely had cramps. My 2nd PPAF seemed normal.

My first was a lot lighter than normal and I didn't have any usual symptoms (cramps, back cramps, sick feeling, etc.)  ...just some light bleeding.   Each one got increasingly more "normal."
