AF back at 8 1/2 weeks PP??!

So, with my first baby I didn't get PP AF back until he was almost 7 months old. I am now tandem nursing my toddler and my baby who is almost 2 months old. AND I've started bleeding.... is this REALLY my period coming back? If so, YIKES!!!! Anyone else in this boat?

Think it will affect my milk supply?

Can't say for sure. Could be a bit of PP bleeding making a comeback. I bled one time a few weeks after my initial stuff stopped. But I do know that w/ my own dd (my 1st) I looked so forward to no AF because of nursing for a good long while and at 3 mos. BAM!! There it was like clock work. Now with ds it was 6 mos. So I guess it varies alot between people. HTH!
I had some weird PP bleeding three months after ds was born. He's now over ten months old and no sign of AF yet! There is a drawback, though: I grew a moustach.

I got AF back 8 weeks pp with my first, and it was and remained heavier than it had ever been in my life. I'm nearing 8 weeks pp with this baby and starting to feel pms-ee. Oh, and I was and am bfing. The no or light AF thing doesn't always apply!
Its probably just starting pp bleeding again. I bled on and off for many weeks. You might be doing too much. Try cutting back for a few days and see if that helps.
Possibly, but don't get too upset yet. I was so upset when AF came back at EXACTLY 6 weeks (we EBF). Then, not again until a couple weeks ago. Even now I'm not too sure what to think. Hey, I'm fine with a 4 month cycle!
Oh gosh, this is all good to hear... I was hoping that even if it was AF I would be really irregular and maybe not have it again for several months. When I got it back with DS 1 it was light, but remained regular until I conceived DD at one year. I also got terribly sore nips during ovulation. That hasn't happened yet, luckily, since we're not being safe... iykwim.

Sounds like even if it is AF I might still get a few months break.

And yeah, it could be a little PP bleeding coming back, but it seems different and I feel sort of achey. It's just soooo weird.

I hope I avoid the moustache.

I bled off and on for over 12 weeks. it would stop, then start up again.

I hated it.
