Ok...I'm still BFing my 6 month old and I think I have my PPAF now. 4 days ago I started having very light spotting w/cm which lasted for 2 days. It started off sort of brownish/dark red. By day 3 it seemed a little lighter and then got a little bit darker/heavier...but only enough to use about 1 pad a day--if that (mostly just a panty liner). What is this? I don't have any cramps or other PMS symtoms. I usually have super heavy periods. With DS1 I got PPAF at 10 months pp and w/DS2 I got it around 8 months. So this is early for me...but have never had anything like this before. Ughh... Anyone go through something similar?

I'm 18 months pp and I have been having the exact same spotting ...two times this month..I think it's my body gearing back up for fertility, I had to wean to even get here so it's encouraging...I'm sorry you feel yours is too soon, but I am thankful you posted this as it makes me feel a little better knowing I'm not the only one with this strange spotting and stuff

Thanks for the reply. I just never had this before (except during the first trimester with my 2nd and 3rd babies). I was just concerned because it isn't really heavy enough to be a period but it is still going on (5 days now).

Hey! You didn't say anything about the spotting inthe other thread! I think that's a great sign. If you got crosshairs and spotting a day later, I'll bet it was ovulatory spotting! How are your temps now?
