I have been pregnant and or breastfeeding for the last four years. I haven't had a period since 2004.<br><br>
My youngest nursling is 13 months now.<br><br>
Last night I had a small amount of vaginal bleeding. I thought that it was my period returning. I even went out and bought some pads thinking I needed to have something in the house for when it got heavier.<br><br>
Today I woke up and there isn't a sign of anymore bleeding at all. I am completely confused. Could it be that my body is just taking a bit to get aunt flo going?<br><br>
Thanks!

It's possible. Is it also possible that you could be pregnant?

NAK<br><br>
I had two periods between dd1 and dd2, the first was light and very short-lasting...thought maybe I was pregnant, then I got a real-ish period about 6 weeks later, then got pregnant. So, could be AF.

Could also be ovulation bleeding. Especially if it's your first time ovulating after such a long time.<br><br>
If you wait 16 days and no further sign of your period though, do a test (you should have your period within that time frame after ovulation)! I banked on it being ovulation bleeding once and 16 days later with no sign of blood, I realized that it was implantation bleeding... Now he's almost 5 years old! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">
